My H-1B visa expires on 5th August 2021. Currently, I'm outside of the USA and planning to enter on 30th July 2021. Can I enter the USA with a one-week valid visa? Will there be any problem at the port of entry?

I assume your husband is the immigrant. He can have the conditions of his LPR status removed on his own by filing a waiver of the joint filing requirement. He can request alimony in a dissolution proceeding and he can request the affidavit of support be enforced.

The USCIS has gotten extremely obnoxious to employers for H1-b visa applications. The unrighteous restrictions placed upon lawful non-immigrant/immigrant employment visa applicants smothers the U.S. economy due to bigotry and ignorance. They used to allow 200,000 H1b visas in the 1990s, but it...Read more »

Voluntary departure won't change the fact there was overstayed or authorized stay that triggered immigration bar. But depending on your circumstances, there could be waiver available to you. You should definitely consult with an experienced attorney.

It depends on what the pastor is coming to do. If the pastor is coming to teach congregants, preach at services and such gatherings a specific visa is needed.

The effect that this might have on your insurance rates depends on your prior driving record and your insurance company. There is no mechanism for tickets automatically coming off of your driving record absent some type of agreement with the prosecutor. I don’t necessarily expect it to affect a...Read more »

This would be best handled by a civil litigation attorney as it sounds like it involves several name changes or may require one now. You may be able to get free help from legal aid clinics but if not you can always reach out to attorneys directly and ask if they would help for free. Best wishes!
Hopefully your employment for the US company is considered to be engaged, performed and paid in Canada.

You should check with the airline that you will be travelling with but usually domestic travel does not require a valid visa, only valid ID.
