Q: i have political asylum from venezuela. my wife is citizen, what form do i need to complete? i-130 or i-485 or both?
You write: "I have political asylum from Venezuela" (?).
May I assume you filed Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal with USCIS and that you are a national and citizen of Venezuela. I am also assuming, you are now married to a USC. You can complete and file concurrently both forms, I-130 and I-485, along with all other required documents.
May I strongly suggest you hire a well known immigration attorney to help you with, what seems a simple, adjustment of status case. Think of it as an investment on your life.
Wish you the best,
Ana S. Mendieta, Esq.
A: Additional details are needed in order to answer accurately your general question. A competent, experience immigration attorney will likely ask you a series of questions to determine what are your facts and, based on those facts, what is the best course of action for you. Many attorneys during the COVID-19 pandemic, including my firm, are offering telephone or online video (e.g., Skype / Zoom) consultations.
A: It is impossible to answer your question with the limited information that you are providing. A confidential consultation is necessary to obtain the information needed to make a recommendation. You should invest some time speaking to an immigration attorney to proceed with the best course of action for you. In the end, the immigration process is long and you want to do it right the first time. Contact us for further information. Best to you.
