immigration status, F1 visa,  Chicago immigration attorneys, obtain legal status, Visa Waiver ProgramIn today’s fraught immigration climate, more and more immigrants who come to the U.S. want to be able to adjust from a nonimmigrant visa to an immigrant visa or status which will allow them to remain in the country. Normally, adjusting one’s immigration status is a fairly low-key affair. However, during the current administration, the procedure has become more intimidating. Understanding what is required can make it less so. 

Are You in the U.S.?

It may seem like splitting hairs, but one important factor is that if you are not currently located in the United States, any attempt to change to an immigrant visa or green card is not called adjustment of status. Rather, it is called consular processing, because technically, a putative immigrant who is not in the United States has no status to change. Anyone abroad would simply go through normal consular processing, just for a much longer-term visa than the more common B1/B2.

Chicago immigration lawyers, Illinois immigration, immigration policy, F Visa, current immigration law, family-based immigrationAfter the December 11 attack in New York City that was perpetrated by a Bangladeshi immigrant, the president and current administration have gone on the offensive, arguing loudly about the evils of what is being called “chain migration.” They allege that chain migration, also called ‘extended chain migration,’ is a lax policy that permits too many immigrants into the U.S. without proper vetting.

While numerous experts have debunked such claims as manifestly paranoid, it is important to understand the legal arguments surrounding this issue, especially since the authority of the Oval Office may be turned arbitrarily on this aspect of U.S. immigration policy if nothing changes.

Educational Opportunity- F Visas | Illinois Immigration AttorneyWhile the American school system is not the best in the world - that honor belongs to Finland - there are still many students worldwide who want to study in the United States at all levels of education. In order to study academically in the U.S., one must obtain what is referred to as an F visa. This type of visa allows a foreign national to come to the United States and study, even if the same program is offered in their country. Vocational students have a separate visa, the M visa, which covers their category of study.

Application for F Visa

Before a foreign national can even apply for an F visa, he or she must apply and be approved by a school that is a member of the SEVP (Student and Exchange Visitor Program). A fair amount of U.S. schools are members of this program, but not all. If a foreign national applies and is accepted by a non-member school, their F visa will most likely not be granted because that school has no infrastructure in place to communicate with the State Department about their student status via SEVIS (Student and Exchange Visitor Information System).
