I was born in India and still have my valid Indian passport, however, I recently naturalized for the United States and am waiting for my US passport. Can I travel with my Indian passport whilst I wait?

You can certainly travel from the United States to India with your Indian Passport. However, the issue is whether you would have sufficient documents to safely return to the U.S.

In case a person desert from the US military and moves to Canada or EU, will she be extradited back to the US? Does this kind of offence considered to be extraditable?

It depends what other legal issues are involved. I strongly suggest a confidential legal consultation with an experienced attorney.
My question is that we met on an adult website and within weeks we fell in love. I have went to the Philippines and met him in person along with his family. While I was there we got engaged. Is meeting on an adult website something that would red flag our K1 visa?
answered on Oct 2, 2022
A US citizen can sponsor a foreign national for a fiancée visa provided the two have met in person, two years prior to filing the K visa application. There would be no red flag because you met each other on the web. There may be a red flag because of the age difference, and thus your application... Read more »

A marriage based green card is not related to the employment issues. If you seek to get a visa or green card through employment this maybe different.

A US citizen can sponsor his wife who entered the country on a student visa, and thereby adjust status to get a green card. This is true even if your wife is currently out of status. Any lawyer from any state can represent both of you in this process. Some of us handle these types of cases on a... Read more »

Yes a marriage based green card application can still be filed during the pendency of an employment based green card application. A work permit can be issued within 5 months from the time the case is filed which will allow your wife to work for any employer. You should retain an immigration to... Read more »

I'm assuming that you have been paroled and are at liberty after serving prison time for a crime. You can always return to your home country, Great Britain, even with an expired passport.

I assume you mean performing work for the same company that petitioned for you, Yes, you can work remotely. Or, you can work for another employer - in India, only.

my grandmother has lived and been dependent on my mother for years and it would be impossible for her to live without my mother. Is there any way I could request a green card for both of them?
answered on Dec 15, 2021
There are several questions to be answered at the outset, e.g., whether you are 21 years or older, where your mom and grandma are located, whether you have sufficient income yourself, or whether you might need a third-party sponsor. There are more questions depending on the answers to the previous... Read more »

A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. These product-based actions are sometimes mutli-district cases with heavy dockets. If you have an attorney on the case already, they would know best, based on how far along the case has already progressed. But if the... Read more »
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?
answered on Jul 26, 2021
BP may very likely deny you entry into the United States. Normally you must have at least three months before your visa will expire. Secondly, if you only have a week left on your visa BP will presume that you are in violation of the terms of the visa.

It's a little difficult to answer your question, because there is a lot of information that is missing. I am assuming that you have a two year conditional green card. I don't know if you are divorced yet. If so, you may be able to petition to keep your green card.

Im a cuban citizen in USA since 2028, i have not being admitted and inspected or parole thats why i cant adjust under CAA, but recently i they designate TPS for Venezuela, and im also from Venezuela, can i adjust status under CAA if TPS is granted?
answered on Apr 12, 2021
It sounds like you might be able to apply for TPS for Venezuelans, but there is no direct pathway to lawful permanent immigration status under TPS.
answered on Mar 12, 2021
No. You need an unexpired passport for international travel. But you can expedite the renewal of your passport. See: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/get-fast.html. Best wishes!
ICE said that they have to leave and my wife’s parents ran away just left a note saying if ICE finds me they can take me. My wife didn’t sign anything but would happen to her since she’s sponsored them in ?
answered on Dec 16, 2020
When you say she sponsored them, I take that to mean she filed I-130 petitions for them to be eligible to apply for permanent residency/consular visa processing. No liability to her for the sponsorship. If she posted ICE bonds she would forfeit the money posted.

Yes, file for your naturalization. You should hire an immigration lawyer and be represented for both matters. Eight years? There's something wrong with the way they handled your case. Good luck
