Employment immigration in California

Immigration law provides a type of visa specifically geared to people who intend to come to the United States in order to work for a specific employer. Temporary work visas allow them to work in the United States for a limited period of time. There are different categories, some which may be sought by the prospective employee and some that may be sought by the prospective employer.

Scams aimed at immigrants

Individuals in California who are seeking to immigrate to the United States must exercise caution and try to avoid scams offering to smooth the path to immigration or provide services meant only to steal money from the unwary. Advice on immigration is only appropriate from an attorney or someone who is qualified to assist an immigrant in the process and authorized by the immigration appeals board.

Family-based immigration in California

In many cases, a U.S. citizen or a family member of one have goals to rejoin their relative through immigration. if you are the spouse of a U.S. citizen or are the parent or child of one, you are probably wondering how to go about getting your green card so you can also live and work in the United States along with your loved one.

Court delays stall California immigration cases

An estimated 415,000 people awaiting decisions on whether or not they can lawfully remain in the country may have to wait until November of 2019 to see a judge in the wake of a flood of hearing cancellations. The problem began in 2014 when the US Department of Justice gave priority hearing status to specific types of Central American immigrants. Previously scheduled hearings in California and elsewhere were cancelled with little notice and rescheduled for November 29, 2019.
