Immigrating to the United States can be a daunting process, but it’s also a dream for many people around the world. With the right preparation and guidance, you can navigate the immigration system and achieve your goal of living and working in the United States.
One of the most important steps in the immigration process is to make sure you have all of the necessary legal documents. This can be a complex task, as the specific requirements vary depending on your immigration status. To help you get started, we’ve created a legal checklist for immigration.
Before you start:
- Gather your personal documents. This includes your birth certificate, passport, and any other documents that prove your identity and nationality.
- Collect evidence of your financial support. This could include bank statements, tax returns, or pay stubs.
- Compile proof of your relationship to your spouse or children. This could include marriage certificates, birth certificates, or adoption decrees.
Legal forms and documentation:
- Complete the necessary immigration forms. This may include the I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, or the I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status.
- Gather supporting documentation for your application. This may include proof of your identity, financial support, and relationship to your spouse or children.
