Resolving Immigration ProblemsIn An Honest & Responsible Manner

Tips for handling an immigration petition

Bringing your family members to the United States is an exciting endeavor, but you have to be prepared to handle some challenges along the way. It isn’t as easy as just saying that they are coming and booking a flight for them. Instead, you have to apply for the proper paperwork and go through a long process to make this happen.

Always file the application as soon as possible. There are bound to be delays that come up during the process, so be sure that you leave time for this. This is also true during the process of renewing your green card or your immigration visa.

Read all documents that come in for the process. This correspondence can include dates for you to go in for interviews or that you need to submit specific documentation. You can also find out about challenges that you are going to have to address.

You need to know the applicable laws for this process. Violating any laws can have a negative impact on your petition. In the most extreme cases, you could even be banned from the country.

There is a chance that your application or some paperwork could be lost during the process. Keep copies of anything that you submit to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Always send things in using certified mail and have a return receipt.

Having a lawyer on your side who knows how to handle specific immigration situations that you are facing can benefit you in this situation. Make sure that the applicant and the sponsor know what’s going on, so they can do what needs to be done.
