Answers from Our Ridgeland Immigration Attorney
Immigrating into the United States can be incredibly complicated. Petitioning
the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requires an in-depth
knowledge of the laws as they apply to your particular situation, which
can be difficult for those already busy with work or family issues.

What is a green card and how can I get one?
A green card serves as proof that an immigrant is a legal and permanent
resident of the United States and includes the permission to live and
work in the country. Green cards are granted by the USCIS after a waiting
period and gives the citizen immigration benefits. Whether you have come for
family, a green card can be achieved with the help of an attorney from Taggart,
Rimes & Graham, PLLC.
How can my family members become permanent citizens?
The process of applying for your green card can take years and requires
a citizen family member to sponsor you. Further, there are often long
wait times that are governed by U.S. immigration quotas. While all applying
for citizenship are subject to these wait times, the further the familial
relationship from the citizen, the longer the one applying for citizenship
will have to wait. Visit our
family immigration page to learn more, or call Taggart, Rimes & Graham, PLLC to talk
to our lawyer about your specific situation.
I’m getting married, can I apply for a visa?
It is a common issue in movies and TV that getting married to a U.S. citizen
can help fast-track citizenship, however, in the state of Mississippi,
you must be able to prove that the marriage was legal and not fraudulent.
You or your spouse can then apply for a
marriage visa that can help you on your way to becoming a permanent resident.
Can I come into the U.S. to work?
Workers and their employers can obtain a
temporary work permit for a number of jobs, including those in the agricultural field or qualified
professionals in fields where there is a shortage of domestic workers.
These permits and visas can be applied for at any U.S. consulate, but
can be complicated, especially when you are already in the U.S.
