We immigrated to the USA and then my family got their citizenships after 5 years, but at that time I was under 18 and I wasn’t able to get mine, according to the lawyer who filed my parent’s citizenship application. But I got a US passport using my parent’s citizenship. Now I’m 23 and I... Read more »
That doesn't make any sense. You were likely included on your parents' application and are a citizen, but just mistaken. You should file a FOIA request to find out what's really going on, through a lawyer.
On passport of my origin country i have my maiden last name and on US passport i have my maiden last name + my married last name. The marriage happened in my country of origin, but later on, my husband changed his last name to reflect his biological father's last name trough the US court, so... Read more »
It's difficult to tell whether you are asking about US policies or the policies of your home country. If your home country is the one giving you the problem, then you need to speak to a lawyer who is licensed there. But generally speaking, you need to follow the paper trail. That means you...Read more »
I am a Mexican working in the US on a TN Visa. I would like to work remotely while covid quarantine... Nothing will change, still the same company and position, but I want to know If I am allowed to work from Mexico (another country) for a couple of months... and If it is allowed, how long can I do...

I agree with the former answer. If you can work remotely, it should't affect your TN status for the period it is valid. I would only add that might need to consult tax professionals in both countries and in TN.
I am in the process of buying an old house (they don't even have the year it was built on record) that sits on the very corner of it's property. When looking up tax information I have seen some land line overviews that make it look like a corner of the house actually sits on the... Read more »
You can buy it, for what it is worth. You may not be able to get title insurance without a special endorsement or exception, which is usually only problematic if you need a loan to purchase. You need to do some research on how long the house has been there, there is a statute of limitations on...Read more »
Your question is a bit unclear as to who has had the property fenced for 48 years, you or the opposing party. There are many facts that are not contained in your question that would affect the outcome of the answer. I strongly suggest that you seek a consultation with an experienced real estate...Read more »
Your question is not very clear from the context, you seem to be confusing your issues. If you are trying to develop a piece of real estate, especially one to which title may not be clear due to inheritance issues, you should definitely invest in a consultation with an experienced real estate...Read more »
How do I claim my portion of the property? My father left a will naming me and my brother as heirs. I am not sure if my grandmother, a widow, left a will. There are two houses and land. Everything is still in my grandmother’s name. My aunt stated her heirs are me, my brother and my two... Read more »
Owner's Title Insurance Policy, a copy of which I paid for back in 2004, due to them not retaining documents from back in 2004. As I never received the Policy back in 2004, can not the attorney issue me a new one without me paying a second time?
Attorneys in the State of Alabama generally only are required to obtain documents for six years. 2004 was a very long time ago. You might reach out to the title insurance company, if the attorney's office remembers who their underwriter was. There's no guarantee, though, again - that was...Read more »
I have an question from New York City. I am waiting for an asylum interview almost one year. So Far Was not schedule. it It is for one year already. I came with an F1 visa. I requested asylum when my visa was still okay. I want to go to Mexico, because of the CoronaVirus, I have the option to be... Read more »
No one really knows right now what is going to happen to people in your situation. But in my humble opinion, if you go to Mexico, you will likely have to stay there until at least we have a new administration in the White House.
No, that's not going to work for him. Even if the marriage were somehow "registered" with your home nation, as others have suggested, you would still have to proactively petition for him to come to the US, he can't just do it on his own based on your marriage.
I'm a Swedish citizen living in London with my American now husband. We've been living together in Sweden and the UK for over 5 years, and just got married a month and a half ago in Sweden. We're in the US temporarily to visit family, before heading back to London to start the... Read more »
While I can't give you any advice on what your best course of action is personally about travelling or rescheduling your event, I don't believe anyone in your specific situation will be eventually punished due to US immigration regulations for sheltering in place as ordered. So you can at...Read more »
If you have a ten year green card, and your husband has separate status, I'm confused as to why you are filling out any sort of marriage based application for either of you. Does he (new husband) not have a green card? If he has a PhD can he not self-petition? If he can go that route, that is...Read more »
K-1 Visas are generally more expedient than consular processing for a spouse. But you really should set up a consultation with a qualified immigration attorney, who can screen both of you for other issues that may be dispositive of whether you should do a K-1 or IR1.
