Immigration scenarios can take all sorts of different forms, with many of these being complex and multifaceted by their very nature. For any immigrant seeking long-term success in the United States, knowing where to turn for experienced legal representation can make a significant difference in the eventual outcome of your immigration proceedings. A few of the issues we can assist with include:
A: Unfortunately, there is no secret “easy mode” hack for getting your green card. America is a nation founded on principles of equality and, as such, anyone who wants to become a permanent legal resident of the U.S. will be subject to the same level of vetting.
That being said, priority may sometimes be given to the spouses or children of current U.S. citizens if their paperwork is properly completed and their sponsor meets income thresholds and other requirements. Work visa applicants who are filling particularly critical roles can also have an easier time with the green card process, relatively speaking, than other immigrants.
A: Under current state law, immigrants must be able to prove that their presence in the U.S. is authorized under federal statutes to apply for a standard state ID card. However, thanks to the passage of a recent bill, AB 1766, eligibility for a state ID card will be expanded to all residents of California, regardless of immigration or citizenship status, by the year 2027.

A: Until AB 1766 goes into full effect in the year 2027, it may be difficult or impossible for undocumented immigrants in California to obtain valid IDs. This lack of ID can, in turn, cause many more problems for a person, preventing them from:
A: There are actually many different paths to becoming a legal resident of the United States, and the correct one for you will vary based on your individual goals and current situation. For example, a qualifying job offer from a U.S.-based employer and a marriage to a U.S. citizen can both offer paths to legal residency, but these are very different processes in practice.
