Frequently Asked Questions about Immigration

What are the 4 types of immigration status?

In the United States, there are 4 types of immigration status; they are citizens, residents, non-immigrants, and undocumented.
  • Citizens: people who are born in the U.S. or who have been “naturalized” after 3-5 years as a permanent resident. These people can never be deported unless their citizenship was gained fraudulently. 
  • Residents: conditional or permanent, are those who have obtained a green card, which can be done through several different routes. Being a lawful permanent resident of the United States for 5 years can and will typically lead to becoming a naturalized citizen. 
  • Non-immigrant: the status given to those who are in the country on a temporary basis, such as students (F-1 visa), those visiting for business purposes (B1 visa), tourists (B2 visa), fiancees (K-1 visa), and more. 
  • Undocumented Immigrants: who are also called illegal immigrants. This status is typically obtained either through entering the country illegally or by overstaying a legal, but temporary visa. Any undocumented immigrant runs the risk of being deported.

What are the 3 types of immigration?

There are 3 main types of immigration in the United States; they include: 
  • Family-based Immigration: allows U.S. citizens and permanent residents to petition the government to allow certain family members into the country
  • Employment-based Immigration: often sponsored by a specific employer and is available for permanent and temporary placements within the U.S.
  • Humanitarian Immigration:  allows refugees to come to the United States to escape persecution and allows those seeking asylum to stay in the U.S. if their home country is too dangerous or unstable for them to return

How long is the immigration process?

The process length can vary depending on what type of immigration you are pursuing, but typically the processing time for “naturalization” or citizenship applications is about 14 months. However, that is just the application processing time, and process as a whole will take longer and can get complicated. That’s why it is highly recommended to consult with an experienced immigration attorney near Baton Rouge! 

How does an immigrant get a green card?

If you are eligible, all you have to do is file Form I-485, the Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status with USCIS. You must also include all required documents and fees. This is put very simply, and having the best immigration lawyer in Baton Rouge on your side to help you understand immigration law will definitely help your immigration case go smoothly!
