Immigration fees might be increasing soon

There is a chance that the cost of immigrating to the United States will get more expensive in the upcoming months. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is a fee-supported agency, which means that it relies solely on the money it earns to support it. As things stand now, the agency will be grossly underfunded in the upcoming year.

Immigrating to the United States is an exciting time for many families. For those who have school-aged children, helping the foreign students to adjust to the new schools becomes a priority. There are several ways that parents and other trusted adults can help these kids.

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.

Service members: New law might impact baby's citizenship rights

The changing facets of immigration in the United States can make it difficult for people to make plans for coming into the country. Recently, it came to light that certain service members and contractors who are stationed overseas and having a baby could be facing some challenges with the baby's citizenship. Instead of the baby being granted automatic citizenship, the parents will have to apply for it. This is making some individuals uncomfortable; however, it doesn't mean that the child won't be able to come into the country.

Maybe you just want everyone together or maybe your family members are living in a dangerous area overseas.

Families seeking asylum might have new challenges

Immigration policies in the United States are changing significantly at a rapid rate. President Donald Trump recently said that he is going to change these even more, and the new changes will impact families who plan to venture to the U.S. to seek asylum.

Asylum: A state of change can negatively impact petitions

One of the ways that people come to the United States from other countries is seeking asylum. It is possible for members of a family to file for asylum if one member of the family has been threatened and there is a valid fear that they will be persecuted. Unfortunately, asylum seekers might face a tough road with this claim.

Bring family members here, but remember important points

Bringing family members into the United States from another country requires that you fill out immigration paperwork and go through a process. This isn't going to be easy and since the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) tends to run behind on processing times, which can mean that applications take longer than they should. This can make it a challenge to plan for your loved one to come here, but it can also pose problems with the renewals.
