Mother granted visa to be with dying toddler

Unfortunately, reports indicate that one woman was prohibited from being at the side of her toddler as she was banned from the country by the current administration's travel ban; she was only recently given a waiver that allowed her a visa to travel to the country.

Transferring To A New Employer: I-140/I-485 Portability

Each year thousands of workers are sponsored by their employers for Green Cards, including in the Washington, DC area. However, with increasingly lengthy processing times and priority date backlogs, employees may face challenges with their prospective employers including the company shutting down, internal managerial conflicts, or even workplace harassment.

Not to fear though, as there may be ways for these workers to leave their employment and still receive permanent residence.

Many people in Washington, D.C. and across the country make the erroneous assumption that those who have not completed the naturalization process failed to do so because of some sort of failure or oversight on their part. However, the path to becoming a naturalized citizen is often lengthy and expensive, making it especially difficult for those who are seeking a new start to complete it.
