Do I need to hire a lawyer in that country or do I need to only consult a real estate agent?

You could reach out to attorneys in the Austin area as a starting point, but it's likely a real... Read more »

I started working this year and filed my taxes for last year. I got a tax refund but I was not employed anywhere last year. I am a F-1 student, will this refund affect my chances of getting green card?

As long as your taxes were properly completed, the mere fact that you got a refund will not affect your eligibility for permanent residency/green card. You should consult with an immigration attorney though... Read more »

You ask a question that needs more detail.
Are you going to pay hourly? piece work? project work? or whatever.

It is possible that he will not be allowed in because of his intent. He’d be coming as a tourist, which is a temporary visa, though his intent would be to immigrate.
On the other hand, he might be allowed in, depending on the questions asked an your husband’s responses.
My nephews and brother in Colombia are asking me how is my financial situation, how much is my retirement pension, etc. I don't know if I am going to be treated fairly. The attorney is a personal friend of my nephew.
What action should I take? Pls give me your advice.

It does have something to do with how much a dishonest administrator is willing to give you and whether he thinks you will have the ability to sue and appear... Read more »
