The process of becoming a U.S. citizen

While it isn’t impossible for you to work and live in America without becoming a citizen, there are often many advantages that come with citizenship. These advantages can include the right to gain a U.S. passport, the right to vote, and the right to work under any employee at any location. Here at U.S. Law Center, we see many legal immigrants, just like you, who want to become a U.S. citizen. We understand the importance of such a goal.

Applying for visas based on family immigration

At US Law Center, we see many cases in which a registered American citizen knows a relative or a loved one living outside of the border who may wish to come to the States. If you are a U.S. citizen and have a fiancé, spouse, children or siblings who you wish to bring to the U.S., a family immigrant visa may be an option for you to consider.

How do I get a record clearance for my visa application?

As part of the application process to obtain a U.S. visa, an immigrant may be instructed to get what is called a record clearance. This is basically a background check to show a person's record with law enforcement. If an immigrant has received a traffic ticket or was arrested, this information appears on that record, along with the reasons for the arrest and the resolution of the charges. In California, immigrants can receive their record clearance from the State of California Department of Justice.

What steps can be taken to help unsheltered migrants?

The migrant flood from South American countries has taken a large toll on many parts of the U.S. recently. Facilities of any sort simply aren't equipped to deal with the high number of unaccompanied youths and families that have crossed the border, leading to a shortage in housing, food, clothing and other amenities. This may lead some people to ask what they can do to help these migrants while they wait for their day in immigration court. Here is some general advice that may be used to help give aid to those in need.
