Frequently Asked Questions
In order to apply for citizenship, you must be a Lawful Permanent Resident (green card holder) for 5 years. However, if you are married to a US citizen then you can apply after only 3 years.
If a family member or loved one is arrested by ICE, you should hire an attorney to assess the situation. You should also obtain as much information as possible from your family member when he or she contacts you. Ask them for the name of the detention facility where they are being held, ask them for their “A number” which is usually typed on a plastic bracelet assigned to them, and ask them if they’ve been told of any future court hearing date.
Many immigrants detained by ICE are eligible for a bond, but they usually must first request one from a judge. They must prove that they are not a flight risk and that they are not a danger to the community. It is important to have evidence to support any claims made.
If you are scared to return to your home country then you may be eligible to file for Asylum. Asylum is a form of protection that the United States offers to persons that have been or will be persecuted based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or a particular social group. Applications for asylum should be filed within one year of your arrival to the United States.
A charge for DUI (driving under the influence), even if only a misdemeanor, should be taken very seriously. A DUI is not in itself a deportable offense but may result in deportation proceedings or the loss of immigration status. Please consult with an experienced attorney before entering into any plea agreements that may result in a conviction.
