You aren’t supposed to enter the US to get married on a tourist visa. If you are questioned at the border, and it becomes clear that you plan to marry once you enter the US, your visa could be revoked, and you could be banned from entering the US for 5 years.
My brother lied in his DS-160 form in 2013 while applying for b1/b2. He mentioned fake college name and degree in the form.The same info was repeated again in 2018 while filling DS-160 while renewing b1/b2 .He still has valid b1/b2 but is worried about future and wants to amend the mistake he made...

If your home country is the one giving you the problem, then you need to speak to a lawyer who is licensed there. But generally speaking, you need to follow the paper trail. That means you...Read more »

How can I answer this question so it does not affect our immigration cases? I don't want him to to be persecuted; he is currently in process for becoming a resident, and is just waiting for his priority date.
Well, the facts are the facts. If you are asking whether you should like on your N-400, my answer obviously is "no". Don't like on your N-400. If you are asking whether he has adverse facts in his case, then "yes", he probably does. How adverse that information is...Read more »
I am a US citizen living and working in the states, my daughter was born in the UK and has a british citizenship. The US embassy in the UK denied her application because they believe I did not provide sufficient documentation regarding my 5 years of physical presence in the US.

My boyfriend is from another country and has a green card with conditions from a previous marriage of 1.5 years. He wants those conditions removed. I own a home, and he wants me to put him on the deed as he says owning property in America will help his case. Is this true?
Under his circumstances, no. Your boyfriend needs to show that, in spite of the divorce, he and his first wife entered into marriage for love and not to circumvent immigration laws. Because he’s divorced, he should be able to file the necessary form at any time. He might want to talk with an...Read more »

You need to have an immigration attorney review a copy of the judgment to determine what risks you may incur in applying for naturalization. There is a fairly high chance that the conviction may make you removable.
