Immigrating to the United States is a dream shared by many people in the world. The United States’ immigration laws determine who is allowed to enter the country, the length of a foreign national’s stay, how a lawful permanent resident becomes a U.S. citizen, and how out of status foreign nationals are detained or removed from the United States.

Foreign nationals must obtain permission to come to the United States through the grant of either an immigrant or non-immigrant visa. Immigrant visas are for those who want to stay in this country and become employed here. These visas are limited by country-specific quotas. Non-immigrant visas are for tourists, students, and business people who are here temporarily.
Self-representation to obtain an immigration benefit is not recommended. The immigration regulations require individuals to submit a detailed application and supporting evidence to demonstrate that they qualify under the existing law for the immigration benefit they are seeking. Because immigration regulations change frequently, it is difficult for anyone without formal training to stay current on the law.
