If your practice involves immigration, you’ve come to the right place. FindLaw's collection of Immigration Law articles, part of the Corporate Counsel Center Law Library, contains a wealth of information covering key topics like the manner in which the United States federal government controls the flow of foreign nationals into our country to the nuances of obtaining legal status of persons born outside the U.S. If you need more information on distinctions between natural born citizens and foreign nationals seeking immigrant or nonimmigrant visas, click on the links below. Keep in mind: states have very little control over visa procedures or regulations, with the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution trumping nearly all attempted state or local legislation surrounding immigration. You will also find articles on H-1B visas and related immigration legislation as well as a useful guide on the steps to help your clients become legal U.S. citizens.
