Q: Hi there , I was dating this guy . We applied for our marriage licenses but I realize I didn't wanna be with him .

Him and his lawyer forged my name on the marriage licenses . I never said I do , I never even met up with the lawyer. What they did was illegal. I would like to know if I have a strong case against getting this tossed out ?

Immediately respond that you did not get the RFE in the mail and you did not change your address. Ask them to resend it to you. It is a time sensitive document that tells you that you have to respond by a certain date.

Q: My cousin in Ukraine denied visa because her aunt backdated her age to 11 when she was 14-a minor. Does she have a case?
Kyndra L Mulder
Kyndra L Mulder answered on Apr 27, 2021

What do you mean; "Does she have a case?" A case for what?

A minor is not held accountable for the actions of adults. This will not count against her if she applies to immigrate or for a non immigrant visa.

Yes if you were a US citizen over 21, then you can sponsor mom, and then you can sponsor dad later. It will not be possible for your brother to accompany mom as her derivative beneficiary, so he will need his own independent grounds to enter like a student visa or a visitor visa. But those are only... Read more »

Congrats. I doubt that should be an issue. You spent most of your time in the US and that is what is required for the time segment of the form. If you are asked about it at any time explain it as you did here.

Q: I came to this country on asylum from Rwanda. I want to visit my parents in Zambia. I'm not a Citizen yet. can I travel?

I no longer hold a Rwandan citizenship because I left as a refugee.

Nadine C. Atkinson-Flowers answered on Apr 13, 2021

As an asylee you have to get approval before you travel. A specific document is needed.

You should consult an attorney - the American Immigration Lawyers Association and Justis both have lawyer directories. You can also look on the USCIS website.

Q: My child’s name was not included when I filed for green card, I am a LPR now. Do I have to file i130 for her.
Adan Vega
Adan Vega answered on Apr 4, 2021

In your posting, you did not indicate how and when you obtained your resident status.

Without knowing that information, it is probable that you may have to file the FORM I-130 on behalf of your ( unmarried ) child.

You should contact an experienced immigration attorney for personalized guidance.

Dear Overstay,

I will assume your B-1 non-immigrant visa was issued around 2014. You then came to the US and overstayed your authorized stay of presumably 6 months for more than a year. This alone bars you from seeking admission into the U.S. for 10 years, at which point you will allow to...
