    Answered . There is no new law for immigrants. There is not one on the horizon either. There is a talk on Capital Hill and by the Administration about some kind of an attempt to pursue a comprehensive immigration reform this year. Follow the link below for more information on the reform proposal. There is though a change in the regulations called Provisional waiver which allows immediate relatives of US citizens to seek an inadmissibility waiver for an overstay or EWI provided a number of specifically listed requirements are also met. Follow the links below for more information on these new benefits and to learn what we no so far about the Comprehensive Reform proposal.

DO NOT fall for promises by notarios or unscrupulous attorneys.

    Answered . Absolutely DO NOT count on immigration reform being in place by September 30, 2013. since you are curently in status you should do everything possible to remain that way. Has your employer begun your green card process?
