How to prevent “aging out” of green card eligibility

Immigration law in the United States allows children who are unmarried and come to the U.S. before the age of 21 to apply for lawful permanent resident status.

Is it better to apply for a fiancé visa or a spouse visa?

You and the love of your life have decided to get married. You’ve established a solid, supportive relationship, and you’re ready to take the next step together. There’s just one hiccup in your plan: your fiancée lives in the Philippines.

Fearmongering leads to sheltering problem for child migrants

This week, we learned that over 1,6000 migrant children residing in immigration shelters across the country have been rounded up, put on buses and sent to live in a tent city Texas.
