What steps are involved in the adjustment of status process?

Many people enter the United States on various types of visas. However, they may come to feel that this country could act as their new permanent home. Of course, individuals cannot simply choose to live in California or other states without following the proper steps, including working toward an adjustment of status that allows them to pursue a green card.

Enforcement of U.S. immigration law leads to more investigations

When individuals hear about government crackdowns in relation to immigration, it can cause people in California and other areas to feel a sense of anxiety. Many people who work and live in the country may not have every aspect of their immigration affairs in order. As a result, they may fear that they could face deportation with greater enforcement of U.S. immigration law.

How to apply for a student visa

Individuals from any country are welcome to apply for a student visa to study at American universities. Student visas are necessary for anyone who wishes to attend a university, high school, conservatory or seminary within the United States. 

Seeking asylum can be a long and difficult journey

Having to leave home for any reason can bring about feelings of anxiety. When individuals from other countries have to flee their homes, anxiety may also be coupled with fear. In some cases, people may not have a fully formed plan of where they are headed, and as a result, they may need to seek asylum once they get to a country they feel may be safe.

Backlog of citizenship applications increases, keeps many waiting

Finding one's place in the world can be a difficult and life-long journey. When it comes to finding a place to live, it can be just as difficult. Immigration issues can easily complicate certain situations, and some individuals in California may feel that obtaining permanent residency is a great achievement. While this milestone should be viewed as such, it does not offer the same protections and benefits as citizenship.
