In the event the your children are not USC's through you and are not registered as birth abroad children of a USC you will need to obtain immigrant visas for them. You do this through the US consulate. You will need to provide sufficient documentation that the mother of the children has granted you...Read more »
Recently I got approval notice of I-130 from USCIS. The I-130 petition was for my husband based on F2A category as I am a permanent resident. My husband is in the US with valid F1 student status. As the priority date became current in 2018, he has already filed I-485. We are waiting for interview... Read more »
My Girlfriend from Mexico whom I met while doing volunteer work in Ecuador came to visit me, after I returned to the United States, entering the country with a valid travel visa. After 2 months, I decided we could not live without each other and we got married.
In general, A person will be admitted into the USA if they have a valid visa and go through inspection. Admission may be denied if the visa is expired or the person has overstayed their visa. Also, BP had discretion to cancel a visa if they suspect immigration intent.
Will uscis process the petition since he will not be in USA physically. If he is able to file petition how will his deployment affect the case, even if we are able to submit documents and pay fees while he is on tour.
Yes. He can file the I-130 even though he is not in the USA. His deployment is temporary. As long as he has a permanent residence in the Usa he can use that address on the petition. He should include on the final page a note that he is on active duty and temporarily deployed outside the USA.
Can she stay in the USA while she is waiting for a green card, she has retired from her job and it will be a big help if she could stay with my son while I work thats why I ask. Can she have her status change.
In general the mother of a USC is an immediate relative and a visa is immediately available to her. She can adjust inside the USA. One word of caution is that she will need to be prepared to demon state that she entered the USA with a non immigrant visa and did not intend to immigrate. If she had...Read more »
Hi! I applied for i589 form soon 3 years and i haven't gotten my interview yet, but i'm working in warehouse and my employer want to file the i140 form to changr the status and get the green card, does it possible ?
I don't know your current status. Do you have a valid visa, an expired visa.... Most likely your status is EXPIRED and/or PENDING. If you have ever used medicaid your adjustment may be denied until you pay the medical bills. You are not entitled to food stamps. This is why, when applying to adjust...Read more »
Based on the facts you have presented you do not need a waiver. If you are applying again for a non immigrant visa you will need to provide sufficient evidence of your intent to return to your home country. There is a strong chance this will be denied if there is evidence of previous...Read more »
Whether your husband is eligible to get the hold lifted or for bond depends on facts that you have not offered. The hold means that he will be deported without the right to see a judge first or he does have a right to see a judge to defend against removal. What needs to be done or can be done...Read more »
Yes. Permanent resident means just that. Spending a few weeks in the USA and living in Switzerland does not make you an LPR of the USA. Your status may be revoked. There is a commuter status available if you qualify.
My mom was here on October 3rd 2018 and left January 7th 2019. She is planning to come on may and leave On July and then returns back in 2 weeks to stay another two months. Will she have any problem returning to the US after two weeks from her leaving?
The 10 year visa does not give your mother permission to enter the USA. A visa gives her permission to request admission. The I-94 provided to her by BP states the amount of time she is allowed to remain in the USA for each trip. If she requests admission to often BP may suspect that she has...Read more »
Can I marry him in USA and apply for conditional GC or should I go back and apply from my home country. I had my h1b visa stamped earlier.(2008 to 2011), but I never used it. Its not that I am getting married immediately but can I get married within in my 6 months of stay.
Provided you meet all requirements you can marry and adjust status from inside the USA. To know whether you meet all requirements requires more information. I suggest you and your boyfriend consult with an experienced immigration attorney.
Canada and was denied entry. His court date was pushed out a couple times, but finally happened. They've since arrested him and he's been placed in a dentention center.

A situation like this involving specific criminal and immigration facts requires a thorough review. I suggest you contact an experienced immigration attorney who knows the effects of a criminal record on a persons immigration status.
