About The Book

A Comprehensive, User-Friendly Guide for Anyone Planning to Live Temporarily or Permanently in the United States

The process of acquiring and retaining the right to visit or live in the United States is an interesting and complex subject. US immigration laws have not changed very much during the Trump administration, and yet the experience of immigrating to the United States has definitely been affected by it. In this concise primer, first conceived and designed as a how-to resource for would-be “green card” holders in the 1990s, the process of getting and keeping a visa is explained and updated in this new edition. In simple terms, the authors provide a breakdown of the most important topics in this area with useful examples. With over thirty years of experience practicing law, co-author Humberto S. Dominguez adds valuable insights and observations to this increasingly important topic. The road to legal residence in the United States can be a tricky and elusive endeavor. Immigration Questions & Answers, Fourth Edition, will guide you every step of the way, with a down-to-earth approach and invaluable advice. Chapters cover topics such as:

  • Obtaining a short-term visa
  • Political asylum
  • Temporary Protected Status
  • DACA for Dreamers
  • The visa lottery
  • Helping your spouse get a green card
  • Removing conditions on residence
  • Visa processing
  • Ways to become a US citizen
Persons who hope to visit or live in the United States and even lawyers unfamiliar with immigration law and practice will benefit from this basic guide. People facing particular difficulties in this area, who may ultimately need the assistance of an immigration lawyer, will also benefit from learning the bare essentials.
