California immigrantion: Losing permanent resident status

After a person goes through all of the work to obtain a green card, he or she may not think it is possible to lose the permanent residency status it provides. Unfortunately, this is far from the truth. Unless an individual applies to complete the naturalization process, it is possible for permanent resident status to be taken away or abandoned. Those in California who face the threat of losing their status may seek legal assistance with this and any other immigrantion issues.

Felony conviction can affect deportation and removal proceedings

Criminal convictions can greatly affect an immigrant's ability to remain in the country. While not all convictions will result in deportation, those immigrants in California with felony convictions are more likely to face deportation and removal proceedings. While a person's back story and the details of the crime do matter, having a criminal record certainly can have an affect on the outcome of these proceedings.

Millions may be denied deportation defense promised by Obama

It has almost been a year since President Obama signed an executive order designed to allow millions of undocumented immigrants to remain in country. This plan would also have provided deportation defense to numerous individuals currently residing in California. Unfortunately, the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled against the order, meaning those who would have qualified under Obama's plan will have to keep looking for other ways to obtain the appropriate documents required to remain on U.S. soil.

How does consular processing work?

When seeking permanent residency status, there are a couple of different ways in which this can be achieved. Consular processing is one of them. Those who qualify for consular processing do not currently reside in the country, but do have an approved immigrant petition and an assigned visa number. Those wishing to enter the United States, in California or elsewhere, can apply for their visas at U.S. consulates abroad.
