Most lawyers, much like other professionals do not work for free. If you desire to retain the services of a free or no cost lawyer, I suggest you call Legal Aid in the community in which you reside. Good luck.

You will still be able to sponsor your fiancé but you will have to have a financial co sponsor.

I have college degrees and a good job but he does not. He was also on disability in UK for a year. I am not sure if a lawyer can help him so we can live together in US after all these new rules by Trump?
Yes, you should retain counsel to make sure all the new rules are complied with so that there are no delays or denials. Discuss with counsel the best strategy and the fastest way possible to achieve the result you both want.
I am a US Citizen. I filed -130 for my mother who is in the US currently under a B2 Tourist visa. Does she have to leave the US if I don't hear back from USCIS by the time her stay in the US expires (she has a 10 year-visa but can only stay 6 months at a time)?
Does she wish to reside her permanently? Are you over 21? What was her intent upon entering the USA on her last arrival? More facts are needed to know. Discuss with counsel. Some of us give free consults and counsel anywhere in the US can represent your mom.
Yes, you can. Discuss with counsel about the unique facts of the case to see if extenuating factors could be a potential bar, such as crimes, past immigration violations, past marital history. Some of us charge very affordable flat fees. Good luck.

If you marry here, based on a K1 visa for your fiance or you marry in the DR will not be determinative of a successful application. Based on the household size that you mentioned, you will not be able to sponsor him, at least financially, on 23k in income. Thus, you will need a joint sponsor....Read more »

I agree with counselor Slattery. Retain counsel to process an adjustment of status petition with supporting documents. A complete review of the file would need to be made, but it appears as if he qualifies to process here in Florida.

Yes, there is still time to file a case. If you can establish that the business owner through their acts or omissions to act caused your injury, then you can file suit. Discuss your case with counsel here in Florida about contingency fee representation, which means you don't pay anything unless you...Read more »
If you are overseas, you should file to process her LPR at the consulate. The process takes almost a year. Discuss your case with counsel here in the US who can represent you in the case from start to finish. Some of us charge very affordable flat fees. Good luck.
