Help Through Challenging Times

Federal law and state law can impact immigration process

Becoming a citizen of the United States is a dream for many. Depending on a person's circumstances and situation, there can be multiple steps in the process of becoming a U.S. citizen. With citizenship, a person is granted rights that allows the person to stay in Michigan or any U.S. state, permanently. Without citizenship, a visa could run out forcing a person to return to their birth country.

The truth is, federal and state law can impact the immigration process for a hopeful would-be citizen. Federal law generally trumps state law when it comes to immigration matters, as it's a matter of constitutional rights. However, some state laws in Michigan can be relevant to proceedings involving immigration law. Every person's immigration query has specific aspects to them and finding out how your situation fits into the scheme of immigration laws is important.

Many who are seeking citizenship have loved ones or family members who are already citizens in the U.S. Under federal law, those born in the U.S. are granted citizenship while their parents may not be legalized citizens if they were born in a different country. If you or a loved one has questions about their immigration process, there are ways to seek answers. The paperwork portion of the process is just one part in a multi-step process to achieving citizenship.

It is possible to achieve U.S. citizenship and become a naturalized citizen. This dream can help make it possible to get not only permanent residency, but access to citizenship rights and benefits. Joining a family member who has already become a citizenship can make it possible for everyone to be together. That's what family is all about.
