You may most likely take a trip of fewer than 30 days to countries contiguous to the United States and reenter on an expired visa provided you have proper documentation and have not applied for a new visa during the visit. Canada would be such a contiguous country.
There are several unknowns here and best to direct your question to an attorney, who can review the documents. In a nutshell, it all depends! It depends on the corporate structure, governing documents (and always but not likely primarily here on applicable laws). It is generally absolutely doable...Read more »
Me and my friend made a terrible mistake trying to steal from Walmart. They called the police and the police wanted to schedule the court for May 19. We had flight tickets (we are international students) to go home in the next week so they somehow could hold the “court” right there at the... Read more »
I suggest you get a South Carolinian criminal defense attorney or a local immigration lawyer who also practices criminal law in order to get this taken care of properly. Often, if not handled, right certain criminal charges will much later present a problem in the immigration context.
If you make any income from your rental activity, per US Tax law, you must include it in your annual tax return. The way you organize or register your activity abroad is a matter of applicable local or international law abroad.

Hi. Not sure why you filed for citizenship without having the condition removed first. Sadly, processing times have become rather long (often exceeding validity of conditional green card). As long as you have the 'under review' notice you remain in status. At some point USCIS should...Read more »
Typically, you would apply for adjustment via a consulate outside of the US. However, if you're in the US and you're still within the allowed stay of the VWP / ESTA, then you can send an application to USCIS while in the country.
Please speak to a lawyer. If you somehow overstayed the allowed stay and have thus accumulated unlawful presence but want to pursue staying legally in the United States, you must speak to an immigration attorney.

I have H1b visa but due to Covid I haven't been able to change the visa on my passport from F1 to H1b, but I have the I-797A approval notice for H1b. I'm wondering if that will be enough for applying for marriage green card. Thank you.

Hi. Your situation sounds too complex to discuss on a blog. It will definitely require an analysis that you want to do in private with an immigration attorney. The biggest problem that I see is the apparent 'unlawful presence' after the expiration of your J1 visa. You need to speak to an attorney.
My conditional green card expired on January 20, 2022. USCIS sent me a I-797 notice of action and the received date by USCIS was also January 20, 2022. Was my removal of conditions done on time or will be considered late filling?
The LLC has had no business transaction or anything of my knowledge. It was made 1 year and 3 months ago by another Company that had made it for me without me actually being ready for it and then when I told them I don’t think I was going to be ready yet they completely cut off connections with...
