The US Citizen Application Process, Permanent Residency, and Hiring Professional/Nonprofessional Employees.

The United States citizen application and immigration and nonimmigrant processes are extremely complex, and obtaining permanent residency requires a long list of requirements, paperwork, and the legal expertise to properly process and present your case. It is crucial for anyone attempting to receive permanent residency, or for anyone who wants to obtain a legal status to work in the United States, to consult an experienced attorney who specializes in immigration law. During the process of submitting paperwork to the United States government, even one mistake in your application can lead to denial. Furthermore, any records or documents submitted to the United States government by or on your behalf become permanent records of your case, which may be a basis to help, hinder, or deny you in the future. Do not make the mistake of self-representation, or make the mistake of obtaining shoddy legal representation. The experienced team at Hilf & Hilf, PLC can guide you through each step of the immigration process and maximize the potential for you to successfully become a lawful resident or United States citizen.

Types of Immigration

Immigration is generally divided into four separate categories: Employment-based, Family-based, Litigation, and Nationality & Citizenship. Employment-based immigration usually involves an employer petitioning for its workers or potential workers, with some exceptions, such as: extraordinary aliens, national interest waivers, E-2 investors, and EB05 investors. Family-based immigration, on the other hand, requires a green card holder or a US citizen to sponsor a family member such as the parents, children, siblings, or a spouse. Litigation cases often present complex, life-changing issues such as removal proceedings or adversarial hearings against government attorneys in Federal Courts. Nationality and citizenship concern the process for green card holders to become naturalized, or for children of United States citizens to derive citizenship from a United States citizen parent.
