Q: I am a GC holder, planning to marry my girl in india and she has a valid B2 visa, After marriage can she travel to US?

1 Answer | Asked in Family Law and Immigration Law for Texas on
Answered on May 5, 2016

A travel visa is for purposes of visiting and returning to India. Your wife must be intending to return to India and have proof of such, etc. Ultimately, it will be up to officials when she enters the U.S. on whether or not they admit her.

I suggest you consult with an immigration lawyer in order for you to discuss in private your personal situation.

Q: Son is US citizen in US Navy, at Pearl harbor. Married Philipina lady, now permanent residence.

1 Answer | Asked in Family Law and Immigration Law for Texas on
Answered on Feb 12, 2016

Your question is very unclear, you need to consult with an immigration attorney in private regarding this matter. If that child you are talking about is your daughter-in-laws child, he doesn't have to adopt her she can get a green card through her mother. Many immigration attorneys including me offer free consultations, make use of the consultations. All the best.

Q: To inherit from my aunt, I must prove paternity of my father. I do not have a birth certificate. Is a DNA test accepted?

1 Answer | Asked in Family Law for Texas on
Answered on Nov 8, 2015

If your aunt's estate is being probated in PR, you would have to be proven to be her heir in the PR probate court. I expect that DNA testing would do it, but you should that any DNA test would probably have to be approved by the court. Speak with an attorney there.

Answered on Oct 29, 2015

Congratulations on such a high GPA. You will not graduate until a number of months from now. Isn't it best to stay in the same circumstances that allowed you to obtain those grades? Do you have a way to fully support yourself? It might be best to save up so that you can get your own place. Is there someone else asking you to move in with them?

1 Answer | Asked in Family Law for Texas on
Answered on Oct 27, 2015

This is apparently the making of a criminal case concerning interference with custody. The step parent basically has no rights, in my opinion, but I do not practice in TX. The child must do as the parent say, at least for the next 6 months.
