POLICY CHANGES, CITIZENSHIP REQUIREMENTS
(Mar. 2, 2020) — Florida has around 4.4 million immigrants, accounting for 21% of the total number of people living in this sunny state.
Furthermore, 1 in 4 Florida workers are immigrants, with immigrant-owned businesses employing an estimated 847,000 workers per year. Plus, this state is home to an impressive 375,000 immigrant entrepreneurs.
Therefore, if you are looking to immigrate to the U.S, you could do a whole lot worse than planning a move to Florida.
That being said, under Trump’s new immigration rule, which determines entry based on an immigrant’s financial situation, it has never been more difficult to obtain a green card and with the threat of ICE, it is definitely a good idea to understand how an immigration lawyer in Florida can help you.
1. An immigration lawyer can help you with new immigration laws
As explained above, tougher and stricter immigration laws can come into play at any time and if you are not prepared and informed of these laws, you could very well find yourself turned down for permanent residency in the United States.
An immigration lawyer in Florida will not only have a wealth of experience in immigration processes in the U.S, but they will also be up to date with any changes to immigration laws and will be able to advise you accordingly.
2. An immigration lawyer can help you pass the citizenship test
If you struggle with the language and history of the United States, an immigration lawyer can refer you to an agency that will help you prepare for the all-important citizenship test.
These agencies will teach you about the culture and the history of the U.S, as well as help improve your language skills if needed. They will also provide you with practice tests, meaning you are much more likely to be allowed to become a permanent citizen.
3. An immigration lawyer can help businesses who employ immigrants
If you own a business that employs immigrants and you are either worried about some members of your team or would like to help a certain individual to become a permanent U.S citizen, then an immigration lawyer can help you.
From completing green card applications to what to do if ICE comes to your workplace, an immigration lawyer in Florida can advise you on all aspects of immigration law and the processes that go with it.
4. An immigration lawyer can attend hearings with you
Being called to an immigration hearing can be a scary and daunting experience, but if you have an immigration lawyer present, you will know that you are being adequately represented and that your rights as a person are being looked after.
A lawyer can also help you prepare for any upcoming hearings you may have and give you instructions on how to proceed with your case.
5. An immigration lawyer will be with you every step of the way
Whatever the outcome, an immigration lawyer in Florida will be able to help you make the right decision for you and your family, making the whole process seem a lot less overwhelming.
