Useful topics new immigrants need to consider

If you're immigrating to the United States, it's likely going to be a big change for you and your family. This can be a positive change in many ways, of course, but it can also feel a bit overwhelming. You may not even be sure what you need to know, and you certainly will not have all of the answers yet.

To help you get started, here are a few topics that you may want to dig into a bit deeper, per the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS):

  • Locating housing for your family
  • Learning more about the local area and the community
  • Finding a job
  • Getting a driver's license
  • Getting your Social Security number and card
  • Finding health care facilities
  • Putting your children into a local school
  • Registering for English classes
  • Considering other adult education classes
  • Learning what you need to do in the event of an emergency
  • Looking for community organizations that have been specially designed to help you and other immigrants in the area

This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it does help to show you some of the topics you need to look into and all of the options that you have. It may be best to print out this list and tackle the different items one at a time, checking them off as you go. This makes it feel more manageable and allows you to track your progress.

At the same time, make sure that you are also well aware of all of the legal options that you have, and the steps you need to take.
