Alana Sadowski, now thirty-three, once lived in Poland before immigrating to the United States five years ago. “I had a dream of making it as a model in the fashion industry. My boyfriend at the time had taken me on a trip to New York City, and as soon as I got into the city, I knew I had to be here in order for my career to blossom.”
Sadowski says that soon afterward, she and her boyfriend had returned to Poland and she decided to end the relationship in order to pursue a new life in the U.S. “It was very difficult to leave him, but it was not a choice I ever came to regret. I am certain that I would have eventually made the decision either way, because I knew that I was destined for a life outside of my hometown in Poland.” This prompted Alana to look into her options as to obtaining legal status to live and work in the U.S.
“I wanted to do everything the right way. I kept hearing about illegal and undocumented immigrants having to face many hardships and struggles, and worrying that they would one day be discovered and deported. I just wanted to do things right the first time around.” Today, Alana has a flourishing modelling career and resides in the Soho district of New York City.
As stated on usa.gov, a green card gives you official immigration status in the United States, entitles you to certain rights and responsibilities, and is required if you wish to naturalize as a U.S. Citizen. One must be eligible in order to apply.
In 2018, a news story broke about a woman who had paid thousands of dollars in legal fees to a lawyer to help her obtain a green card, only to be given an order of deportation. Unfortunately, her lawyer intentionally misled her by the semantics of the law, preying on her hopes and dreams, using a tactic that resulted in her being lured into testifying in court. The hearing was not to decide on granting her green card status, but to decide on whether or not she should be deported. This lawyer had convinced her that under the “ten year law” of undocumented immigrants, she could be granted legal status.
Entering into the U.S. without lawful status will always put you at risk. However, if you have been a victim of a crime, or if your spouse, parent, or child has immigration status, you may be eligible for a green card. K Nair Law is a green card attorney in Orange County.
