Civics test required for citizenship failed by most Americans

Individuals who want to make the United States their home have many hoops to jump through. They need to ensure that they have the proper paperwork in order and pass interview and testing portions on their journeys toward citizenship. One phase of the process involves taking and passing a civics test related to U.S. history.

Knowing filing dates is important for adjustment of status

It is common for immigrants to come to California and other parts of the United States and want to make the country their permanent home. Of course, making this decision does not automatically mean that individuals can remain in the country. In order to obtain permanent residency, parties often need to go through the necessary adjustment of status proceedings to reach their desired goals.

Adjustment of status application processing time increases

When moving to the United States from another country or when trying to remain in this country, time is often of the essence. Unfortunately, coming into the country or working on an adjustment of status can take a considerable amount of time, and individuals and families are commonly at risk of negative outcomes. It seems that these times are only getting longer for many people.

US immigration law may provide options for avoiding deportation

Deportation is a common fear among individuals who have come to California or other parts of the United States from different countries. Even if they believe they have all of their paperwork in order or have garnered the right immigration status, they could still feel this fear. Fortunately, some aspects of U.S. immigration law could allow them to fight against deportation proceedings.
