The Immigration Process
The flow charts below provide basic information about how the immigration process plays out for different types of applications and cases. Every immigration case is different, and it is extremely difficult to predict how long many cases will take to conclude.
The information in these flow charts should not be considered legal advice, and detained immigrants and their loved ones are encouraged to seek qualified legal advice from the National Immigrant Justice Center or another credible organization.
