A Washington attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for four weeks. From the brief description, it isn't clear what the matter involves, as it is posted across several categories. For starters, if you were injured (you posted under Personal Injury), you could reach out to...Read more »
I have been living in the US for just a year now. I entered with a b1 visa and overstayed it. I am aware that it is illegal but as an African, I didn't have any real chances of obtaining a residency in the US.
That said, I work hard every day hoping my American... Read more »
Yes. Maryland repealed the requirement to prove legal status in the US in order to obtain a driver’s license; however, a license obtained by an illegal immigrant is not the same as a license obtained by someone with legal status.

It's possible they could. But you don't mention which state this takes place in. Regardless, 9 months would be within the statute of limitations of most any state. Nationwide, these differ from state to state. Many of the statutes of limitations run in the two-year to three-year range...Read more »
