Bronx, NY asked in Immigration Law and Federal Crimes for New York

Q: Why are US petitioners allowed to not secure foriegn applicants US documents?

They are also allowed to not initially secure proper accommodation for foreign applicants who come here and work and pay taxes. This entire experience caused me to loose stable income because I had to migrate because the immigrant visa with a one year extension was about to expire and neither the US immigration nor my US petitioner could explain to me why I did not receive a green card at that time and why someone lied about me having received a card when I was outside of the US and had nothing but an immigrant visa to travel on? After a lengthy time outside of this country and having to pay for this card that years ago I did not even receive, I am now faced with the problem of not having anywhere in the US to live as this petitioner has relentlessly tried to put me in financial ruin. I have been paying them $75 per week to sleep in one room on one bed with them and they want me out as my mame is not on their lease and now they are moving to another state. I am extremely upset....

A: Many of the things you say lead us to believe that your situation is quite unusual, and for that reason you really need to speak with an immigration attorney so s/he can advise you on your options based on your particular circumstances.
