Increase in processing time, increase in fees for immigration

The cost of immigrating to the United States is prohibitive to some individuals, and it seems as though this is a trend that will continue. Recently, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced an increase in the pricing that is likely going to make it even more difficult for people who need to apply for lawful entry into the U.S. to get their applications in.

It will now cost more to become citizens as application fees rise

When it comes to immigration, there are many legal hoops that often need addressing. Even if individuals want to become citizens, they will need to file the proper paperwork, provide the necessary information and pay the applicable fees for the process. Unfortunately, many people hoping to make immigration changes may be seeing more of a financial burden associated with the process.

Obtaining a U visa may not be as easy as hoped

Many immigrants have a fear of working with the police. They may worry that their immigration status will come into question and that they will end up facing detention, deportation or other negative outcomes. However, some individuals could benefit from working with law enforcement if it enables them to qualify for a U visa, which is a special visa for victims of crimes who help the police during the investigation.

Family immigration form can now be filed online

Most people enjoy having relatives nearby. They can keep up with family news, have gatherings and generally spend time together and have the comfort that comes from family. Of course, if a person moved to Louisiana or another part of the United States from another country, their family members may not be with them for some time. As a result, family immigration may be important to them.

Immigration detention centers face claim of unsanitary conditions

Being detained in any capacity can be nerve-wracking. When individuals from other countries come to the United States in hopes of finding help, they may end up in more difficult predicaments than they faced back home. Unfortunately, this may be what many individuals feel as they are held in immigration detention centers in Louisiana and other states.
