My boss is from Europe, and earlier this year, he flew to the US on a tourist visa. However, as the said visa is about to expire, he is currently in Mexico. We are interested in applying for an O-1 Visa while in Mexico. However, upon checking the US Consulate in Mexico, we couldn't find the... View More
Your boss cannot apply for an O Visa directly at the consulate as it first requires submitting the application to USCIS. Unfortunately, you will find several answers by attorneys using "Artificial Intelligence" "Chat GPT" that will tell you otherwise. Seek consultation with an...View More
My parents and I were joint tenants with rights of survivorship. They have both passed away, but my mother's death was never recorded (she died a few years ago). I am not sure how to proceed. Can they both be named as decedents in the affidavit of survivorship?
When a property is held as Joint Tenants with Rights of Survivorship (JTROS), or as Tenants By the Entirety (TBE), the property passes to the surviving tenant. Once the first of your parents passed away, the property passed by operation of law to the other surviving spouse. Thus, the probate...View More

There are two set of rules here. First, the rules of the business entity (operating agreement, bylaws, partnership agreement, etc.), and the Florida Laws.

I have been having daca since I was 17 yrs old. Married to USC and have an approved i-130. I am planning to file a i601a waiver because I dont want to file an adjustment of status. I believe advanced parole is too risky if they don’t let me back in the country. But the question is…I haven’t... View More
Both strategies advance parole, and 601a are incorrect. Since you have not accrued unlawful presence as you received DACA before turning 18 y.o., there is no need to file a waiver and you might qualify to file for adjustment of status forthwith. I recommend that you seek consultation with an...View More

Hi everyone, on 20th Nov 2022 me and my girlfriend were charged with a retail theft summary offence (CC3929) of amount $149 and criminal conspiracy (CC0903) in Philadelphia, PA. We were arrested, fingerprinted, photographed, and given a citation copy with a court date at the station. We hired a... View More
Hi, you did not mention what the final disposition of the charges was. Dismissed? Adjourned in contemplation of dismissal? Pleaded guilty to a lesser charge? Without that information, we can only guess whether the arrest (and conviction if any) would affect your immigration status.
Business never got into full swing. Problems on top of problems and no more money to continue forward. It never got off the ground, am I required to give the money back ?

Hi, keep in mind that in addition to written agreements, there are also verbal agreements that may be legally enforceable, provided there is an offer, an acceptance, and consideration. Whether you are required to return the funds depends on what were the terms of the agreement.
I've had items in storage w/ a company in Canada since the pandemic. I asked them to ship them to NY home & have asked for months. I asked for a quote on multiple occasions, they gave me one but I couldn't afford it then. With the most recent they sent me an email saying they were... View More
The answer will depend on the terms of the agreement. Moving or Storage Companies usually place a cap in the amount of their liability in case the items are lost. The agreements usually require the customer to secure insurance to cover any damages in excess of this cap.
