Answers from Our Ridgeland Immigration Attorney

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 work or 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.

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. Contact our Ridgeland immigration attorney for advice and help today.
