If you have questions or problems regarding immigration matters the most important thing to remember is that you should get help. Immigration laws are always changing and in order to avoid problems and get good advice it's important to find the help of an attorney who is trained and up to date.

- It's very important that you file your tax return every year, even if you don't owe taxes. Failure to do so could affect any immigration matter you have pending or have in the future.

- Citizens may apply for residency on behalf of their spouse, parents, children (married or not), or brothers and sisters.
- If you have a matter pending with Immigration, it's very important to report any change in your address to them.
- A non-citizen, even Permanent Residents, can be deported from the United States for violating various immigration or criminal laws. Some of the reasons for deportation are hitting or threatening a spouse, gun violations and drug violations - there are many others also.

LEGALIZATION- The government is considering the possibility of a legalization program. However, we do not expect that there will be a legalization program this year, and there may never be one. So, for now, SAVE ALL YOUR CHECK STUBS, AND OTHER PROOF OF YOUR WORK! If a legalization program is ever passed, these documents will be very helpful.
Even though it looks very unlikely right now, there is still a possibility that some time in the future a legalization program for farm workers might be passed. If you would like to receive notice if a legalization program is ever passed, please call one of our offices.
