Waivers may allow quicker re-entry after obtaining visa

One common reason people do not have legal status in the United States is because they have overstayed their visas. Visas expire, and on the date of expiration, if you are still in the country without receiving an extension or adjustment, the government will consider you unlawfully present. After 180 days, penalties begin to kick in.

Man deported after 30 years in the United States

Colorado residents may be familiar with the story of a man who was sent back to Mexico after 30 years in the United States. While the man was just recently deported, his immigration status had been in question since the Obama administration. The man had tried to obtain legal status in 2002, but his attorney made errors in following proper protocols, which led to his selection for removal.

Marriage as a pathway to legal status

Colorado residents have likely heard that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is in flux. Those who are part of the program and are looking for a way to stay in the United States may have considered marrying a United States citizen. While this may make it easier to get a green card and stay in the country as a permanent resident, it may not help everyone.

DACA deal may be worked out soon

Colorado residents are likely aware that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will expire if not extended by Congress. Although action to pass the DREAM Act has failed in the past, lawmakers from both parties are now working on a way to resolve the situation. It is thought that the need to pass government funding by Jan. 19 may create leverage to get some sort of a deal done.
