U.S. IMMIGRATION LAW
Attorney Louis G. Kydd
NEW IMMIGRATION RULE SHORTENS PERIOD FAMILIES WILL BE SEPARATED (01/02/2013)
Beginning on March 4, 2013 individuals who intend to depart the United States to appear at interviews in their country of origin will be able to apply for their unlawful presence waiver before departing the United States, under certain circumstances. Under the current process, an individual may only apply for a waiver after the first interview in their country of origin. That individual would then have to remain in their country of origin until there is a decision on the waiver application. This can sometimes take more than a year. However under the new process, an individual, if eligible, may apply for the waiver before departing the United States. That person would still have to depart the United States to appear at the interview abroad, but the time away from the United States relative will be much shorter.
NEW IMMIGRATION POLICY PROTECTS SOME FROM DEPORTATION ( 08/03/2012)
Some people will receive some protection from deportation under President Obama's new policy of deferred action. Deferred action is where the Goverment makes a decision to put off action to remove a person from the United States. Certain persons who came to the United States as children and meet other requirements may apply for this deferred action. While a grant of deferred action will likely result in an applicant receiving an Employment Authorization Documentation, note that deferred action does not grant lawful immigration status.
