Kentucky colleges are leaders in admitting students from abroad

Many may say the current immigration system in the United States is dysfunctional with overburdened courts, an overly complicated application process and unreasonably long wait times. However, at least two colleges in Kentucky have taken steps to help many immigrant students lawfully stay in the country.

How does U.S. law define 'spouse' for immigration purposes?

Some U.S. citizens from Kentucky and elsewhere fell in love with someone abroad and married them. Following that, the U.S. citizen and their new spouse may wish to live in the United States. In situations like this, they will need to obtain an immigrant visa for a spouse of a U.S. citizen.

Some Hondurans must leave the U.S. or face deportation

The United States is often seen as a refuge for people trying to escape a war-torn nation, or a nation that has been struck by a natural disaster. Many people in Kentucky and elsewhere support initiatives to help these people legally reside in the U.S. However, one program that allowed Hondurans to reside and work in the U.S. temporarily is soon coming to an end, affecting the lives of thousands.

Things to know about US immigration removal process

If your paperwork wasn't all in order when you arrived in Kentucky, you've likely worried whether that fact might impede your ability to remain in the United States. Perhaps your situation involves some type of clerical glitch or an even more serious issue, such as crossing a U.S. border in fear for your life in your country of origin. Any situation where you're trying to move forward in life while dealing with a compromised legal status can be quite stressful.

Can one's U.S. permanent residency status be abandoned?

People in Kentucky may have any number of reasons for immigrating to the United States. However, the immigration process is not always quick or easy. For some people it takes years to obtain U.S. permanent residency. Therefore, it may seem unlikely that a person would purposefully abandon that status. However, it is entirely possible for a person to lose their status as a permanent resident of the U.S. through intentional abandonment.
