In my medical test, I was found positive for Tuberculosis (TB) in the blood test. However in the follow-up X-ray examination, It was clean. I was found to have only 'latent TB' infection and not... Read more »
Positive TB tests happen frequently but if your doctor signed the I-693 form and assured you that there should not be a problem then there very likely will not be. But if you have the money and want peace of mind then doing another test after treatment can't hurt. Here is more information...Read more »
I came to the US and got married to a US citizen in 2019. My wife who is my Sponsor on Affidavit of Support Form I-864 received 2 Stimulus Payments in 2020/2021 - they were based on her last Tax Return when she was single. Because I didn’t work in the US in 2019, I didn't file... Read more »
As far as I am aware, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has not clarified whether accepting the stimulus check is considered a public benefit for purposes of inadmissibility, but the USCIS Policy Manual indicates that tax credits are not considered public benefits in a public charge...Read more »
To prove that she can support her studies here and that she still keeps it and will pay them back as soon as she gets her green card. Thats why she was looking for someone to get married to for paper purposes only
You cannot "file a case against someone" because it is only the federal government that can initiate an action against someone for immigration fraud. This of a criminal offense, you can report a crime, but only the district attorney can actually file a criminal complaint against someone.
Do I have to sign by writing down my full name as it appears on the certificate? Or just sign it the way I sign documents, credit cards, etc (which, by the way, is also the signature that appears on/next to my photo on the certificate of naturalization)?
I just became a US citizen (naturalization). My child is under the age of 18. And, I understand she automatically became a US citizen as well. The question I have is as follows. I'd like to do a name change for my child. What is the legal advice on how to do that? Apply for a name change in... Read more »
If your child has not obtained a lawful change of name prior to filing the FORM N-600 (or the U.S. passport application), the Certificate of Citizenship will reflect the name as stated in the lawful resident card. Hence, a petition must first be filed in civil court to obtain a decree authorizing...Read more »
I am currently working in the US with a TN status work authorization. I have been living with my husband since July 2020 and we just got married in February 2021.

You can get a letter from your employer stating that your employ will continue and should specify at what rate of pay etc. The letterhead should identify the employer name at the top and give the name and the title of the person signing the letter, like a supervisor,
I agree that there are too many reasons as my colleague mentioned. There is always the possibility that he is misinforming you. Questionable requests for money from people on the internet can be a source of fraud. He may be in Ghana or Nigeria for all that yo know.
My mother has GC I551 (77 no exp) and has lived lived outside USA with limited trips back and forth to USA with no issue getting through US immigration until 2019 when they questioned and allowed her through on a Visa waiver, which states that her GC is no longer valid.

If they had her file a Form I 407 and turn in her green card, she will have to reapply for her LPR status. Even if they did not take the card, it is very likely that she may be in the system as having abandoned her status, which would mean she has to reapply. An experience immigration lawyer will...Read more »
I’m an Asylee. I applied for green card and I-765 at the same time. It’s been a 7 mount and my I-765 just denied. Can you have a comment about the reason for denial? and Will this denial affect my green card application? Their response is below:
No, it seems that you incorrectly filled out the I-765 form with the wrong classification. You will simply have to apply, again. You may have to pay a filing fee. I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney to avoid any complications and/or delays.
If you want to file for adjustment of status then technically you will not accrue "unlawful" presence from the time that USCIS receives your application and until they reach a decision on your application. So if they receive the application before your lawful stay ends, you should not...Read more »
