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...

The rule is "spouse must have been living in marital union with his or her citizen spouse for at least 3 years at the time of the examination on the application, and not at the time of filing". The exact nature of what it means is determined based on the exact circumstances. I suggest you...Read more »

So if you have your green card already, depending on the type of green card, the USCIS has 5 years to rescind it but it must show that you never had the intent to be in that job which is a burden on them. For practical purposes, unless something took place in addition to what you described, your...Read more »
Hi, thanks in advance for replying my question. I 've recently had a proxy marriage with my wife who is a green card holder of USA. USCIS clearly says, we are not accepting proxy marriage, unless the marriage is consummated. accordingly, my wife plans to travel to my country, so that we can... Read more »
Your inquiry is a technical one. The federal code only indirectly answers it by requiring consummation of the proxy marriage fir the marriage to be considered valid. So therefore you would need to travel first and file after the consummation, which is an affidavit attesting to the consummation...Read more »
You need to consult a lawyer but typically if a business is sold the buyer is the successor to the seller vis-a-vis existing contractual obligations, unless such are expressly excluded from the sale which in theory could result in seller's liability.

There are several questions asked by you that would require understanding your history in detail. That means you would need to speak to US immigration lawyer directly. As a general matter, however, a US citizen child of 21 years may petition for a Green Card for a parent.

I have a band name I have used since 2016. I registered for trademark with USPTO in 2020 and it was officially registered in 2021. I have now learned there was a band which used the name briefly in a different market a few years before my first use and every once in a while after that time.... Read more »
It's a little counter-intuitive. In the United States, it is actual use of a designation as a mark that creates rights and priority over others, not the registration. Therefore, typically ownership of a mark goes to the first-to-use, not the first-to-file.
Hi, At the time of our i-485 interview, our marriage was less than a year old. The case was approved, a permanent green card for 10 years came, and not a conditional green card for 2 years. In this case, is it necessary to apply for the removal of the conditions in 2 years, , even if my spouse have... Read more »
I would need to see the actual document but if what you describe is true, and you received an unconditional green card with an expiration date 10 years into the future, then there should be no condition requiring removal. A quick review of your documents by an attorney can give you the final...Read more »

My green card expires at February 28 but I have already applied US Citizenship. I’m visiting my country in February 10. But I am coming back at February 22. Will there be any problem? Or Is it possible to extend my green card? If it’s possible then how can I extend my green card?
If you have a foreign passport , get a i551 stamp. otherwise, you may have problems reentering on an expired green-card (not proof of status). you will be at CBP's discretion and may have to pay a steep reentry fee. it's a risk, if you cannot avoid taking the trip.

There are several questions to be answered at the outset, e.g., whether you are 21 years or older, where your mom and grandma are located, whether you have sufficient income yourself, or whether you might need a third-party sponsor.

I have an I-485 adjustment of status pending which was filed through my ex-husband's employment (i-140, EB-2 NIW) (I am a derivative applicant). We applied concurrently i-140 and i-485. Both forms are still pending. We were married for more than 2 years. I divorced my husband and got married... Read more »
I would need to gather more facts and look at your documents and you should speak to a lawyer but I think that the I485 relates to your first petition and you would absolutely need to submit a second one based on your second petition with husband #2. Again, can only be answered after a full case...Read more »
