Denial letter was accompanied by a six page letter of allegations towards my green card petitioners -(my father and step-mother) allegations of fraud and misinterpretations .

The allegations that have been presented against you are serious and could result in a “Notice to Appear” before an immigration judge. USCIS is claiming that your resident status was improperly issued. At this juncture, you should engage an experienced immigration attorney to assist and guide...Read more »
Although I have not known USCIS to deny one's naturalization application under circumstances such as those that you describe, what I do know is that USCIS has a policy/guidance whereby they want applicants under such circumstances to submit an application for replacement green card in addition...Read more »
In a week, it is 1 year and 1 day I have been living in the US and I am supposed to send my documents to USCIS to apply for my residence under Cuban Adjust Act Immigrant Program. Does the new Trump's executive order, pausing 60 days Immigration Green Card Processing affect me? If yes, should I... Read more »
Hi there! The current executive order will not affect you as it only applies to aliens who are outside of the US and applying for immigrant visa ( green card) through the U.S. consulate. However, I would recommend that you apply for green card as soon as you become eligible. Good luck!
I am applying under the category of EB 2 NIW I understand that I must submit the i944 but I am not sure if is for my hole family or one per person. I have as dependent my wife and my two daughters, the same happen with the I 864. It is one for each of them. So is one 944 for each of us and one I864... Read more »
The 944 is for the petitioner for the 485, which I'm guessing is you. Your family will be listed on it, but you only need 1 944. For the 864, you'll need it and if you need a joint sponsor if your salary is not enough. So, 1 for you, and 1 for a joint sponsor if needed. I strongly...Read more »

i submitted the form on february 7 2020. what date am i to follow on the visa bulletin? does the final action table relate to me? or would i use the family sponsored table? does it also mean i should submit other documents?
If you are a U.S. Citizen, your spouse would be considered an "immediate relative" as that term is contemplated by U.S. immigration law and, therefore, would not be reflected on the visa bulletin. For "immediate relatives" of U.S. Citizens, which as noted has a special...Read more »
Yes, you can visit the US on a B1/B2. Understand that the purpose of the visitor visa is a temporary visit to the US. They want you to have the intention of leaving the US once the visitor visa expires. Just keep that in mind when you visit.
I initially selected consular processing for the i 130 on my husband's petition but now we want to switch and go the adjustment of status route. Does he have to be in the states for us to switch to that? Provided that we meet the uscis eligibility criteria?
also my husband is in Jamaica and i really want him with me. can he come to the US on his visa and file an adjustment of status with the i 130 pending acceptance? or do we have to wait. how else can i get him here sooner?
The relative petition ( FORM I-130) that you filed with USCIS has been accepted for processing and adjudication. You can expect an RFE ( Request for Additional Evidence) or an approval/denial of the petition once the USCIS officer completes the adjudication.
If you have been arrested, then your answer must say yes. It does not matter how long ago it was or if it was expunged or not. You are able to explain the circumstances of the arrest and the fact that it was expunged. You should also explain the reason it was expunged and why it should not weigh...Read more »

Read more »
Hi there, just add new version of I-485 form to your previously mailed package, you don't have to complete all other forms again. Make sure to place green page ( that was attached to your rejection letter) on top of your submission package. Good luck!
You are considered an applicant for asylum. However, if you entered the U.S. lawfully and you have maintained lawful non- immigrant status then you should indicate that status in your university application.
I have a confusion this, which is one of the requirements to submit the form 1-128/Visa fiance K1: "You and your fiancé(e) met each other in person at least once within the 2-year period before you file your petition."
USCIS is measuring back two (2) years from the date of filing and looking to see if WITHIN that 2-year period you have been in the physical presence of each other (at least once). If the last time you were in each other's physical presence was more than 2 years ago, you must see each other...Read more »
