A Mountain of Paperwork to Climb
It may not be the road to citizenship, but just establishing permanent residence that can be the problem. Immigration law in the United States fills volumes, and there are all kinds of papers to be processed to allow for a lengthy stay. Foreigners and their families may be able to speak English, but legal terminology is not daily conversation and the words can be extremely confusing. Moreover, there is the real fear of not doing the proper filings and being asked to return home. Worries about mistakes that could endanger family members keep many hard-working foreign employees in a state of anxiety and not able to fully concentrate on work projects. Group legal plans can help these people adjust to life in a new country.
