Immigration Reform in the United States

How will immigration reform impact your application and your family?

My firm, The Law Offices of Lloyd E. Bennett, Esq., P.C., has a great insight into the complex issues surrounding immigration visa and citizenship applications. Recently the Defense of Marriage Act was upheld in the Supreme Court of the United States. This alone has impacted many applications from same sex couples who wish to legitimize the status of the foreign spouse.

  • Pending legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives may or may not pass but the need remains. There are many areas that will be impacted by immigration reform including:
  • Adjustment of Status
  • Dream Act Child Green Card
  • Green Cards
  • Marriage and Fiancée Visas
  • Deportation Hearing;
  • Employment Based Visas
  • Citizenship
  • Consular Proceedings

Most people agree there is a dire need for immigration reform; the problem lies in the method to approach the reform process. For example, the Dream Act is intended to grant green cards to immigrant children who graduate from high school based on the fact that they were brought to the country as children. Find out more about the Dream Act if you think you may qualify for this program.

Immigration attorneys handle a multitude of visa applications and deportation hearings that could be more efficiently resolved if immigration reform becomes a fact. Until then, the best chance of getting a visa or a permanent residency card is to retain the services of an experienced New Jersey immigration lawyer.
