I don't know much about barber school and barber licenses, but it is very possible that the school requires different credentials from the agency that issues the licenses. In other words, your immigration status or lack of status might have not been an obstacle to the school, but it still an... Read more »
I have everything for affidavit... just tax return I don't have. He is finishing school this year... I don't want him angry
answered on Sep 19, 2020
You will need to provide an affidavit stating under penalty of perjury that you did not file a return because you did not have the income necessary to require you file. If you were employed you will need to provide any w-2's 1099's.... to indicate the amount that you made.
If the permanent resident decided to leave the country, could his pension be sent to his country of origin?
answered on Feb 3, 2020
It depends on what you mean by "pension." For Social Security benefits, you can usually still get those outside of the United States. It depends on what country your citizenship is from and what country you are going to. However, Medicare benefits cannot go to someone outside of the... Read more »
Hello! Thank you for taking my question. I was in the process of applying for my Green Card on an I-485 visa and I left the country because I had a travel visa that did not expire. I thought that it would've been okay to do because I had a travel visa but unfortunately, my application still... Read more »
answered on Nov 11, 2019
Yes, it's likely that you will be able to apply again. Unfortunately, if you leave the United States while the I-485 is in process, and you don't have advance parole, then USCIS treats your application like you are no longer interested in the green card, and you have to start over. But,... Read more »
I was just granted asylum and will be applying for a green card next year. However, I worry about my younger brother who is still in my country of origin. He is 17 and he is the only immediate relative that I have there. Since we lost our parents at a young age, I assume that role for him, even... Read more »

Unfortunately, after being granted asylum, you cannot sponsor or petition siblings, only spouses and children. So you would not be able to sponsor your brother directly. You would have to wait until you are a U.S. citizen to directly petition him. Or, he might have another way to come into the... Read more »
I want her to become permanent resident and know the big difference in USC vs PR waiting time and rules. So I do not want to endanger her chances to become PR. If she married a PR who then became a USC, would we have to follow PR marriage rules or since I am a citizen when we file, we would follow... Read more »

If you petition a spouse as a PR, and then become a USC while the petition is pending, you can change the visa category. So I would advise you to start both the petition and naturalization processes now.
answered on Feb 15, 2019
First: It depends on your age.
Second: Because your parents are LPR's and not naturalized (assuming you are a son and not a child) you will need to adjust from outside the country.
Third: Your adjustment will be faster if your parent's are USC's, Nevertheless you may... Read more »

Right now it’s taking seven to eight months for the interview. It takes six months for the approval of the visa itself
My license is about to expire in 7 days and I need to renew my license to be able to drive to work.

The I-797 notice of action is the same title for all government receipts, so more information is needed. Reach out to an attorney in your area. Some of them offer free consultations. This answer will depend on the type of application you have filed.

If law enforcement will not sign the I-918, you are ineligible for a U visa.

You are on an I visa? If so, you should be able to get a drivers license. Speak with the motor vehicles department in Idaho.

With a few nuances, the rule is that if the divorce decree is accepted by a recognized government, the U.S. agencies will recognize it for purposes of immigration, K-1 in your case.
So in this situation, if Denmark recognizes the divorce with the documentation that you have, then U.S.... Read more »
I have meet stephen newman on penpal add an i have been writing to him for 4 years now, and i would really love to visit him, since we started to dating last year.
answered on Jan 5, 2018
That will depend on the rules of the prison, but the process would be to call the prison and ask if a person would be able to use a foreign passport as a form of ID during an inmate visit.

This is a question for a criminal defense attorney, and I would seek a consultation with a one as soon as possible. But the prosecutor cannot have your children taken away if you refuse to testify. That can only be decided by a judge.
If there were signs of physical injury, the prosecutor... Read more »

That's going to depend on what identification documents the prison will accept. Call the prison where your boyfriend is being held and ask them what forms of ID would be accepted for visits. A foreign passport should be sufficient for them.
Im a F1 student in the United States. I've been studying here for 2 years and still have 2 more years to graduate. Im a citizen of Jordan, Three months ago I converted from Islam to Christianity. Can I apply for asylum to avoid persecution in my home country if I go back?
answered on Aug 22, 2017
Yes. You will not need to worry about the one year deadline because of a change of circumstances, and because you are in current lawful status. Consult an immigration lawyer for specific direction based on your specific case.

Adjustment of status is when a non-immigrant visa holder "adjusts status" to that of a legal permanent resident, or green card holder. An example would be a student visa holder marrying a U.S. citizen and "adjusting status" to that of a legal permanent resident green card... Read more »
