The signs are promising for our clients!

As the new President is getting sworn in, America’s immigrants have a new hope to a more decisive plan of action for their full integration into the American society. Among the many sweeping reforms President Biden will present, an eight-year path to citizenship for all immigrants will be unveiled, The Times reports.

Under the legislation, those living in the U.S. as of Jan. 1, 2021, without legal status would have a five-year path to temporary legal status, or a green card, if they pass background checks, pay taxes and fulfill other basic requirements. From there, it’s a three-year path to naturalization, if they decide to pursue citizenship.
