New Immigration Law Changes Announced for Spouses of U.S. Citizens

Posted by Marcin Muszynski | Jun 18, 2024

In a significant development, President Biden has announced changes to U.S. immigration laws, specifically targeting immigrants who entered the US without formal inspection. This update outlines a new pathway for certain immigrants married to U.S. citizens to adjust their status.

Eligibility Requirements: To benefit from these changes, individuals must meet the following criteria:

  • Residency Requirement: Must have been present in the United States for at least 10 years as of June 17, 2024.
  • Marital Status: Must be married to a U.S. citizen as of June 17, 2024.
  • Legal Qualifications: Must not have any disqualifying criminal records or immigration violations.

Additionally, stepchildren of U.S. citizens will qualify for these changes, provided the marriage to their parent was in place by June 17, 2024.

Important Considerations: It's crucial for potential applicants to note that the application period for these changes has not yet begun. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will not accept any applications until a further announcement is made. Prospective applicants should prepare by gathering necessary documentation and seeking legal advice to ensure compliance and readiness when the application window opens.

Stay tuned for further updates as they become available. If you or someone you know may be affected by these changes, we recommend consulting with an experienced immigration attorney to discuss your specific circumstances and prepare for the upcoming application process.
