I've recently got divorced in Wisconsin which requires a 6-month stay to remarry. Since then I have moved to Iowa that does not have those restrictions on remarrying. I have met a girl in the Philippines while visiting there and we have been dating every since and want to get married. Since I... Read more »
You must be unmarried to be eligible to file the FORM I-129F petition to begin the process for the K-1 fiancée visa. After the petition is approved by USCIS and the K-1 visa is issued by the U.S. consulate and your fiancée enters the U.S. you can then marry. This process will generally take more...Read more »
Only a US citizen can sponsor a foreign national for a fiancée K visa. However as an LPR, you can always get married to him and then sponsor him for a green card. He would have to process at the US consulate overseas. The rough wait time for this is about a year and a half to two years.
I have an I-485 adjustment of status pending which was filed through my ex-husband's employment (i-140, EB-2 NIW) (I am a derivative applicant). We applied concurrently i-140 and i-485. Both forms are still pending. We were married for more than 2 years. I divorced my husband and got married... Read more »
My wife applied for aos, I 485 and I 864. I changed jobs during this time to a much higher paying position. All benifits are the same. Our interview is in 3 weeks. Do I need to refile for I 864? Or can I just bring my updating income to the interview?
We applied for AOS I 485 back in June 2020. Our application is still pending and my wife who is on F1 status, is getting ready to graduate. She is interested in working so we are looking to apply for I 765. Since our I 485 is still pending will our I 765 Fee of $410 be waived? Or do we still need... Read more »
The last sentence of the question you posted is the answer. You do not need to pay for the I-765 but you must show proof of the pending I-485. So when you mail your I765 application, include the Notice you got after you filed for AOS. Best wishes!
You can apply now but you will not get a green card until the waiver is approved, possibly requiring you to request delaying adjudication of the pending I-485. I hope you have a reputable immigration attorney handling your case as these types of waivers are highly complex.
Unfortunately, the government does not provide "free attorney" for immigration cases. If you cannot afford to hire a private attorney, you have to represent yourself in immigration court. You may be able to get legal aid to represent you if you qualify.
I am a Lawful Permanent Resident and have been recently laid off due to lack of work. My question is whether receiving unemployment benefit will be a ground for termination of my Green Card or deportation or preventing me from becoming a U.S. citizen in future?
Currently you cannot be denied citizenship for LAWFULLY receiving assistance but it can be an issue in several scenarios such as wanting to sponsor someone or if you want to travel abroad. Furthermore the current administration is trying everything they can to disqualify immigrants who have...Read more »

Removing conditions on greencard now is taking longer, I have received two receipts that has renewed my status but not my card. My greencard is based on marriage, I want to travel to Iran to visit my family but am scared because I am not sure if the airports recognize the receipt!?
Travel overseas, as an Iranian, on a card that hasn't been reissued? From one of the six banned countries? Sorry, you are looking at possibly being held, if not excluded on your return trip. What you need to do is speak with an attorney--they should be a member of AILA or have an immigration...Read more »
I am a citizen of Iran. I have concerns about traveling back home as the travel ban is still in effect. I filed I-131 and I-765 along with I-485 and I-140 on February 2018. I received my EAD with advance parole endorsement valid until May 2019. Also, my STEM OPT is still valid through March 2019.

I am trying to move my case from Baltimore court to Omaha Court, in between i have filled for unconsented divorce. Now my question is if in future i marry some other guy does he be eligible to get work authorization through me?
My green card (permenant resident) will expire before the process of becoming a US citizen is completed. Do I have to still renew my green card while this process of becoming a US citizen is in progress? It expires next month.
Using a false identity or someone else identity is fraud. Your husband is forgiven for working without authorization when adjusting through a USC spouse. However, he is not forgiven for fraud. If the facts are discoverable than he may need a fraud waiver to adjust.
The Question No 3) This is an extraordinary inquisition. I have heard that F-1 holders can be self-employed and can start their own business on OPT but the work should be related to a degree they have earned. My uncle has 5 Franchisee Food Business in the USA so what if I received Bachelor in... Read more »
