How would I be able to live in the United States permanently?
In order to live permanently in the United States, you would have to become a lawful permanent resident (a green card holder). You may be able to obtain a green card through marriage, a qualifying relative (such as a parent, child, or sibling), an employer, as an asylee, under the U-Visa, or other qualifying methods of obtaining a green card. It is important to speak to an immigration attorney to discuss the potential options of becoming a lawful permanent resident.
Is there more than one way of obtaining citizenship?
Yes, individuals who are born in the United States are automatically extended US citizenship and some individuals who are born outside of the United States are also automatically given citizenship through their parents if certain conditions are met. Other individuals born outside of the United States can obtain citizenship through naturalization after having been a permanent resident for 3 (for those married to and living with a US citizen) or 5 years.
Is there a way for me to stay in the United States permanently if I'm a crime victim?
There may be a way for you to become a lawful permanent resident depending on the circumstances of your case. U-Visas are nonimmigrant visas that give temporary legal status in the United States and work eligibility, but a U-Visa holder can apply to adjust his/her status (obtain a green card). A crime victim who suffered from persecution or fears future persecution in their home country might qualify under asylum laws and should speak with an attorney.
How long does it take for USCIS to make a decision on my case?
It depends. If you’ve applied to adjust your status as a permanent resident through marriage with a US citizen spouse, it could take anywhere from 3-4 months. If you’re applying for a green card through consular processing or fiancé(e) visa, it could take anywhere from 9-18 months. If you’ve applied to obtain citizenship through naturalization, it could take anywhere from 4-5 months. Processing time information is also available here:https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/processTimesDisplayInit.do
What can I do when my case was denied or if I've received a notice of intent to deny?
You should quickly speak to an attorney to review your case. There may be options available for you and it’s important that you speak to an attorney soon after you receive a notice of intent to deny or a denial because you’re given a short amount of time to respond, if at all. Not responding or numerous failed attempts at applying for immigration benefits can get costly, so we recommend that you consult with an immigration lawyer.
