Immigration FAQ’s

How does the pandemic impact the most common U.S. immigration processes both here in the U.S. and abroad?

The current pandemic has created many issues with processing cases, creating delays that frustrate those abroad and those currently in the States. When it comes to applicants currently in the United States, COVID-19 has created delays in scheduling interviews, taking biometrics, and having decisions be issued on pending applications. When it comes to people applying for visas abroad, movement varies greatly on the consulate and country. Some consulates are entirely closed while others are back to fully functioning. We have seen processing times increase, but are carefully monitoring our client’s cases so everyone can be prepared when movement is possible.

Can I work in the U.S. while waiting for my green card?

Yes, but only if you have received an EAD or Employment Authorization Document. Some people might know this document as a “work card”, “permiso”, etc. You cannot work in the United States without authorization.

Social Security Disability FAQ’s

How much can I earn and still receive Social Security Disability Benefits?

The process and length of time required to bring a family member to the United States vary greatly and can be impacted by a variety of factors. If your family member has previously been present in the United States without status, has been previously deported from the United States, they may have issues in their legal standing that drastically increases the amount of time needed to process their case. If it is your minor child, the process could be relatively quick. It is highly recommended you schedule a consultation to discuss the details of your case with a qualified representative.

I currently receive Disability benefits but my condition has worsened. Can my benefit be increased?

If you are in the United States without documentation (documentation meaning a green card, valid unexpired visa, or some kind of status) you are at risk of being deported. Your risk greatly increases if you are caught committing a crime such as Driving Under the Influence, Domestic Violence, or other serious crimes. If you are a permanent resident you can still be deported if caught committing serious offenses. Regardless of status, you are entitled to hire an attorney to represent you throughout your proceedings. If your family member or loved one is detained, contact an attorney to see if bonding out of custody would be an option, as this would permit you more time to prepare your defense.
