By | Noticias, Uncategorized | No Comments

No, porque no existe. La gente me pregunta esto frecuentemente. Hay una idea generalizada, de que el código de inmigración (INA por sus siglas en inglés) tiene la llamada “ley de los 10 anos”, la cual le da derecho a ciertas personas a obtener la residencia (Green Card) si es que han estado viviendo en los Estados Unidos por más de diez anos.

By | Blog, Uncategorized | No Comments

To understand where this belief comes from we need a little bit of background. There are two…

Can I get a Green Card if I marry a US Citizen? The toughness of section 245 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA)

By | Blog, Uncategorized | No Comments

(Spanish translation coming soon) There is this generalized belief among immigrants that, if they are in the country, in any status, and they are good people (paid their taxes, have been good parents, spouses, go to church, etc), and they marry a US citizen, then they are entitled to “get papers”, to use the common talk of many of the dozens of people I see…
