In the meantime, there are steps that can be taken so that when Comprehensive Immigration Reform is passed, those who might benefit are ready to roll.
First off, you will want to prove continuous residence in the United States. Bills, especially utility bills, leases,pay stubs, tax and school records, bank account records, cell phone records, and even email tied to an internet service can be helpful. In this instance, more is more.
You will also likely need an original birth certificate. As obtaining this can be time-consuming, it is better to start now.
If you have had any contact with law enforcement or immigration officials, gather as much information and records about that. You will want to scrutinize your situation carefully before requesting Registered Provisional Immigrant status.
You should also be aware that the filing fees alone will likely run over $1,000, during the term of the provisional status.
