Immigration document preparation services are in high demand. Many of the documents are long, and many of the people applying for adjustment of status are not native English speakers. People need help with the documents, and with this course and your own outside reading and study, you'll be able to prepare immigration documents for consumers. We, at FALDP, are adamant that document preparers only take on immigration document projects for people who neatly fit in to the immigration guidelines and rules. For example, if someone is under a deportation order, is in the U.S. illegally, or has a criminal record, we recommend that you refer that person to an attorney.
There are several ways to immigrate to the U.S., however the most common and the simplest is when a U.S. citizen sponsors a spouse. A close relative is a spouse, brother, sister, mother, child, etc; but not a cousin. And of those close relatives, by far the simplest and most straightforward of immigration processes is sponsorship of a foreign spouse by a U.S. citizen.

This course does not include forms. We found it to be much more efficient to link directly to the USCIS site so that form updates are automatic.
This course includes information for the simplest and most basic possible immigration scenario. It is a foundation course that a document preparer can use to begin their understanding of immigration forms and processes. The information is not exhaustive, but is enough to get started preparing documents for this basic scenario.
There are many ways to immigrate to the U.S., however the most common and the simplest is when a U.S. citizen sponsors a spouse. The same rules outlined in this course apply to other close relatives, as defined by USCIS. A close relative is a spouse, brother, sister, mother, child, etc; but not a cousin. And of those close relatives, by far the simplest and most straight forward of immigration processes is sponsorship of a foreign spouse by a U.S. citizen. And the simplest of those processes is when the sponsoring spouse has the income or assets to support the other.
In this course we will discuss some of the exceptions and supporting information, but the main focus will be on this one situation. A U.S. citizen marries someone from another country who is in the United States legally. By learning how to handle the most basic situation and prepare the most common documents, you will have a foundation on which to base the special situations you may encounter. Keep in mind that the focus of this course is not the only possible scenario. Permanent resident aliens can sponsor another close relative; and close relatives other than spouses can be sponsored. However, we are not focusing on these other scenarios in this course. As always when dealing with USCIS -- in all respects and at all times, both parties need to be forthcoming and honest with USCIS on their documents and in all of the interviews.
