Conditional residency status is given to married couples if their marriage is less than two years old when they gain permanent residency. This is because immigrants must first prove that their marriage was not solely made to gain U.S. citizenship. However, these conditions can eventually be removed.
Provisional waivers are available to people who have family within the U.S. but have not personally been able to obtain a green card yet. If these immigrants meet certain eligibility requirements, it means that they can apply for a provisional unlawful presence waiver. This will allow them to remain in the U.S. while their case is reviewed.
According to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, naturalization can be a somewhat lengthy undertaking. However, getting started on the application process can be made less daunting by dividing pre-application preparations up into different sections. The segments can include:
Los Angeles may see a huge spike in new students being registered to the schools in the districts this upcoming year. Because a child does not have to be a U.S. citizen in order to attend schools, many are preparing to open their doors to the large influx of unaccompanied minors who have recently crossed over from Southern American countries.
Immigrant employees in Los Angeles may be in for some good news in regard to registering for citizenship. While many immigrants want to apply for a green card, sometimes it isn’t always feasible due to various restraints. However, a program that has been launched may make it possible for legal employees to apply for their green card just by working.
Immigrants living and working in the U.S. may eventually wish to lengthen their stay. A working immigrant may be able to obtain a green card through their job, which could lead to permanent residency.
Immigrants in the Los Angeles area may have more than one thing to apply for soon. While many wait to become a U.S. citizen, the option will be available in January for immigrants who are undocumented to get their driver’s license. This could potentially solve a lot of short-term problems for immigrants in California, including making transportation much more accessible to many.
Those in Los Angeles may have noticed the fact that there has been a recent spike in youth migration. Drawn by the promise of citizenship or amnesty, people have been fleeing by the thousands from South America, leading to a country-wide problem.
Immigrants and activists alike in Los Angeles have been up in arms over a new ruling. The ruling is partially related to obtaining citizenship and the difficulties that children may face if they hit 21 while waiting.
Residents of Los Angeles may know that California has many large and good schools that immigrants may be afraid to attend because they don’t have a green card and could potentially be tracked down by registering for classes. However, that fear may soon become obsolete as measures are taken to use college to open up a new path to citizenship.
