For years, Georgia immigrants and nonprofit organizations have used documents created in New York, Texas, California and a number of other states and apply their recommendations to Georgia.
While some information in general, is very similar especially at the Federal level, there are specific nuances and regulations that are state-specific, and using documents from other states have caused unnecessary complications and burdens for Georgia families.
With this in mind, a number of organizations and individuals set to create a Georgia-specific document that incorporated recommendations from both immigration attorneys, family-law attorneys and others with the best interest of immigrant families at heart.
We are grateful for all the organizations that worked for months to put this together and for all the individuals that took the time to review, edit and provide recommendations and connections for this document.
Special thanks to:
Please use this document when serving clients, when volunteering and as a resource to find recommendations and advice. Please note this document IS NOT legal advice, it is simply a guideline for a family preparedness plan taking into consideration Georgia legislation.
