- Steps to Take Before Biden’s Immigration Reform Is Passed
- These are some of the steps to follow to be ‘ready’ for the arrival of the expected Reform
- If passed, this immigration reform could benefit millions of immigrants
The long-awaited immigration reform proposed by Joe Biden could benefit millions of immigrants. If you are an immigrant in the US, these are some of the steps to follow before the reform is approved.
As already revealed, Joe Biden’s proposal to grant a path to citizenship for the more than ten million immigrants in the United States could be presented soon in Congress, which is why some steps and documents should begin to be prepared.
Steps before the Immigration Reform is approved
According to an article by Up to date Dallas done with the collaboration of immigration lawyers, people should not ‘get carried away’ by ‘scammers’ who promise to regularize their immigration status, since immigration reform is not yet approved.
But can you start preparing before it is approved? The answer is yes, thanks to various reports you can see at a glance what would be the most essential requirements to access the benefit.
Step One: Documents
Prepare essential documents, It is something that you can start to do from today, the birth certificate, marriage, divorce, as well as papers that show your educational level and your employment such as pay receipts, are some of them.
In addition, receipts for services, such as telephone, electricity or rent, as well as records of entry and exit of the country, and photographs will be essential to prove your stay in the US before January 1, 2021, a fundamental requirement to obtain the benefits of immigration reform.
Second step: Tax
The reform that has been called “the most progressive bill in history”, would contemplate that the applicants comply with their obligations such as paying taxes.
According to a fact sheet distributed by the White House, paying taxes will be a requirement to obtain temporary status, the ‘Green Card’ and even nationality.
The Al Día Dallas article highlights that it is necessary to comply with this obligation, as well as avoid fines or pay them to keep your tax returns in ‘order’. He also recommends approaching an expert in tax preparation.
In addition, this step is critically important to qualify for a third coronavirus relief check and a child tax credit, which could earn you up to $ 8,200 aid dollars by coronavirus.

Step Three: Background
Another step is to settle any legal matter, traffic tickets or any other ‘pending’ with the courts, since a ‘background check’ will be carried out and these matters should be fixed before the approval of the immigration reform that would benefit million immigrants.
To be eligible for the new immigration reform, it is very likely that immigrants who have misconduct or serious crimes will be left out when the aforementioned background check is carried out.
Even people with a high number of misdemeanors or minor crimes could also be left out of the reform, highlights Al Día Dallas. These ‘pending’ with justice can be attended by a lawyer.
By fixing any missing or ‘pending’ with the law, you are more likely to pass a background check like the one that would contemplate the immigration reform or United States Citizenship Act of 2021.
It is important to note that the bill is not yet approved, so any person who offers to regulate their immigration status before Congress approves it and Biden signs it, would be deceiving them.
