How to avoid problems when immigrating to Georgia

Immigrating to Georgia or another region of the United States can be a very complicated and stressful process. Whether you have held a dream of building a new life in America for decades or it has only recently become part of your life goals and plans, the better understanding you have of U.S. immigration law, the lower your risk for running into major legal problems. 

It's always best to have resources lined up so that you can reach out for assistance if you encounter obstacles along the way. There are several things you can keep in mind that may also help you achieve your immigration goals in least stressful manner possible. If something happens that causes you concern, such as immigration officials detaining you at the border, try to remain calm and know where to seek support

Practical ideas that may apply to your situation          

There are numerous legitimate ways to gain entry to the United States. However, if you have arrived in Georgia without your paperwork in order, you are definitely not the first person to do so. The following list includes things to keep in mind when you're navigating the U.S. immigration process

  • It's not uncommon for there to be delays. Whether you're applying for a visa for the first time or going through a renewal process, you may have less stress if you expect postponements and delays.
  • If more than one of your family members is eligible to petition on your behalf for a visa, you can fill out more than one application. Doing so may increase your chances of success.
  • As you may already know, possessing a green card doesn't guarantee you won't be detained for possible removal. However, if you become a U.S. citizen, you will gain many protections you may not otherwise have. 
  • Border officials turn many people away. If you plan to seek asylum, you must be prepared to convince immigration officers at the border that you are not a security risk to the United States and also that you have a valid reason to seek U.S. protection. 

Staying in the United States more than 30 days means you must report your changes of address as well as notify United States Citizenship and Immigration Services regarding each of your family members by filing separate forms for each address change.  

If you adhere to U.S. immigration law and calmly address any issue that arises to impede your application process, you may be able to avoid major legal trouble. There have been situations in the past, however, where immigrants seeking permission to come to Georgia to live have been denied or detained, only to later gain release after experienced immigration advocates acted on their behalves.
