I''m here by Student Visa and she has been a green card holder for 5 years. My visa is expiring and I need to leave the country by October. I know getting married with her when she actually has the citizenship is the best but I'm wondering if during the process of naturalizing can count as a... Read more »
I got married in Mexico in October 2016 because my wife was pregnant. I then applied the citizenship application. My daughter then was born before i became a US citizen. She was born in April 2017 and I became a us citizen in August 2017 about for months after she was born. Now I petitioned for my... Read more »
Your daughter will become a citizen automatically once she enters the US as an immigrant. To get her a US passport, you will need to show that you are a USC, that she is under 18, that she was lawfully admitted as an immigrant, and that she is living with you.
Hi i am a green card holder and applied for citizenship on November 2018 and went to fingerprint on december 12/2018, but since that i didn't receive any mail or test date. how long should i wait , how long usually it takes?
I would like to know if it is possible to obtain a US Work Visa as a german citizen by incorporating a Company in the United States and hiring yourself as the CEO of that exact same company. Technically that would make you an employee of that company and therefore you should be able to get a US... Read more »

The alleged plan is to look for people with final deportation orders, but incidental to a search, ICE may find others, ask questions and consider whether to detain, release and serve a notice to appear in immigration court.
It can help to review your situation and hers, but it is unclear...Read more »
H4 biometric appointment got scheduled in Boston for us, where as we are located in CA. And that too 3 days for 3 people. How smooth is rescheduling,by when do we need to get the H4 process completed, ie.if i submit resignation and my company withdraws sponsorship before their H4 process is... Read more »
You can request that the appointments be rescheduled. The instructions are on the form. It is a relatively easy process. You might even try going to the local office with the notices you have to see if they’ll just take your biometrics.
The fact that you have resigned and the company...Read more »
please keep in mind that i am a gambler and i won little bit more than 1 million dollar and i sow that there are visa's for people who are rich and want to start/buy a business with 1 million dollar and have at least 12 worker ?
Investor visas are available for some people who plan to start a business here in America, which would employ workers in the USA. It appears you have enough capital to qualify for this type of visa. Discuss with counsel anywhere in the USA about the entire process from start to finish.
I was in the process to get my EB-3 through a company and they had filed an I-485 on my behalf, but it is taking too long and they are unresponsive. My husband is a US Citizen and we wanted to go process the I-485 and I-130a with other forms like (g-1145, i-131a, i-693, i-765, i-864). We have been... Read more »
I have a status of LPR. In January 2019 I submitted I-130 form for my wife. In February 2019 our son is born. Is it possible to add him to that petition I have already submitted for my wife or I should submit separate petition for my son?
I filed two separate I-130 for my parents at the same tine. Now its time to submit I-864 online. My current annual income is above the poverty line for my household size. So I was thinking to file I-864EZ. However one of the conditions of filing EZ states that :
I wanted to file FOIA / G-639 myself now. But after a while when I will hire immigration attorney and if the attorney suggest to file FOIA / G-639 again (for whatever reason), can I refile FOIA / G-639 ? How many times I can file FOIA / G-639 ?
That’s unclear. It seems that the adjudicator made a demand for a sponsor, but you chose to present evidence other than what was requested and possibly not enough to prove that you were lawfully employed with an EAD and/or work visa for the duration.
I'm a LPR and keep moving wherever job takes me to so was thinking to keep my parent's address on file with USCIS as I can conveniently get all my immigration related mails. Will that cause any issue in my US Citizenship application?
Yes, it will cause problems. You must live at least 90 days in the USCIS District where you file just immediately before filing. You must be able to prove it. You are required to notify the USCIS within 30 days before moving that you will change addresses. If not, you violate the terms of lawful...Read more »
In 1996 my father became a naturalized U.S. citizen. At that time my parents were divorced and I was temporarily living with him, but court documents show that my mother had custody of me at the time of their divorce. My father said he petitioned for my citizenship since I was underage and claims... Read more »
The only way to do so is to do a Freedom of Information Act Request. It is unclear whether you were a lawful permanent resident, which 'you must be' in order to somehow derive citizenship through your dad. Normally, you would have to derive citizenship through the custodial parent if you were 18...Read more »

I have no income(never worked/filed taxes in USA). Currently I am not working. I have a relative supporting me. Is it possible to file a I-130... Read more »
If your daughter is married, then as a lawful permanent resident, you cannot petition her. In addition, if you live long enough for the visa to be available, then you will need to prove that you can financially support your daughter at that time. If not, then someone must be willing to act as a...Read more »

I'm an American Indian born in Canada trying to obtain a Permanent Resident Card to live and work in the United States. I have a confirmation of registration letter from Indian Affairs to prove I am status indian. I want to know what other steps I need to take to become a citizen?
American Indians born in Canada (with at least 50% American Indian blood) cannot be denied admission to the United States. However, a record of admission for permanent residence will be created if an American Indian born in Canada wishes to reside permanently in the United States....Read more »
