After immigrating to the United States, it is natural for you to want to reunite with those you love. Yet based on what you know about the immigration process, the prospect of that actually happening may seem daunting.
As health concerns rise amidst the pandemic, so have the infection rates in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention centers. There are currently approximately 2,500 confirmed infections among immigrant detainees across the country.
In 2017, the current administration attempted to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. This program allowed so-called “Dreamers” – young immigrants who had entered the country illegally as children – to stay in the country legally through renewable, two-year visas.
Your family makes you whole and is more than important to you. It has been at least a year since you have seen your wife, children and parents. Reuniting with them has been your goal ever since you became a legal permanent resident of the United States.
You probably rank marrying your partner as one of your life’s most meaningful events, and getting a visa could hit the same highs. U.S. law makes it possible to have both, but an even playing field on paper doesn’t always translate to real life.

If you are in the process of applying for a marriage green card, the last step of the process - attending a green card interview - is probably on your mind. The interview is simply meant to assess the authenticity of your marriage, but it can feel daunting.
Applying for a visa or green card requires a lot of documents, and for a long time, applicants had to send those papers through the mail. That is starting to change. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has slowly been adding options for people to file certain immigration petitions online.
Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments over the legality of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The program, which has been in place since 2012, protects “Dreamers” – some 800,000 young immigrants whose parents brought them to the U.S. illegally as children. It has been under fire since President Trump took office.
If you’re loved one is abruptly taken by the U.S. immigration authorities, it can be a terrifying and uncertain time for everyone in the family. You may be concerned about your loved one’s whereabouts, their treatment in detention and their future.
