3 Common Mistakes When Filing Out Visa or Green Card Application

My name is Dalyla Santos. I am the owner of the Santos law offices, and I am an immigration attorney.

Today I want to discuss with you three common mistakes many clients meet when filling out their application for a green card based on their marriage.

Mistake number one, failing to send an application. You must fully complete your application and answer every question of the application. Even if a question doesn’t apply to you, write

N/A or it’s not a applicable, you must not leave any questions and answer, failing to answer every question of the application may lead the application being denied or seriously delayed.

Mistake number two, failing to have entered into a valid marriage for immigration purposes. You must be legally married. If you were previously married, you’re going to have to provide in your application, a copy of your divorce degree or designated again for your spouse or your previous spouse.

It is very important, even if you were married, another country even separated for years to still provide this evidence. Otherwise immigration will reject your obligation or denied.

Mistake number 3, attempting to apply for adjustment of status without being eligible. not everyone qualifies to apply for adjustment of status right away. For example, most people that come in legally into the United States are normally able to adjust justice status right away with their initial condition.
But if you enter without a visa, without documents, you’ll only be able to initially file family petition and then once that is approved, we can move on with your adjustment of status.

Immigration laws are complex and constantly changing as an immigrant myself. I understand that hardships that you must be facing. That’s why all my office get free consult, but we can sit down and discuss your next steps.
