As long as you are returning to the US on a valid L2, then a pending EAD application will not impact your ability to reenter in and of itself, nor should your brief absence impact your EAD application.
To explain, I've learned entering Canada after a DUI is difficult. I had a DUI in Californian in 2007. I completed a 6 month program and applied to have the case expunged. My attorney and I were successful. As of 2012, my case now shows "not guilty", "case dismissed". I have the court document... Read more »
If the case was dismissed and shows it was dismissed, you should not have any trouble. If the case was expunged and there is no record of it, you should likewise gave no trouble. It only likely becomes a problem if there was and is a conviction.
I am filing for Removal of Conditions this year on my K-1 Visa. Last tax year, we got an EITC and ACA Exemption. Now we’re worried if those would be considered as conditions of being a public charge. Hoping to correct the situation before it’s too late.
First, you’ve already passed the period when a public charge determination would be made. Filing the I-751 doesn’t change that. As long as you are otherwise eligible for those things, you won’t have any problems.
My partner has had his interview for the K1 visa at the US embassy in Caracas. He only needs to submit his medical results along with his passport for the visa to be affixed. He is ready to submit those results but my concern is how will the rupture in diplomatic relations between the two countries... Read more »
If the U.S. embassy there closes, yes, he would have to process in a neighboring country and that would likely cause a significant delay. Otherwise, as long as the consulate is open, processing should continue as usual.
He's currently in school in Canada through Saudi Arabia. I am a US citizen by birth. This is a same sex relationship. I do understand that there are laws regarding asylum and port of entry (since he's already in Canada) can he come to the US on a visitor Visa and then seek asylum before we begin a... Read more »
You can either file a fiance visa petition or you can go to Canada to marry and then start the spousal visa petition process. He definitely should not enter with a B2 visa and try to adjust status, as that is an improper use of a non-immigrant visa. Asylum is a much longer, more difficult...Read more »

A deportation order blocks a person from returning to the US for 10 years. However, an I-601 does not relate to deportation. If she applied for an I-601 because she was subject to the 10-year unlawful presence bar, and she has been outside the US for over 10 years, she no longer requires an I-601...Read more »
He does not have a high school diploma. He works as a chef. He has had training in this. We have known each other about 6 years and met at the Fiwagoh Orphanage 2 times. We have been in contact since that time, and I could never find a visa category that seemed to fit. Is this impossible?
I never received a receipt # nor the deficiency letter that they stated they sent to me. I call the USCIS and they informed me that I was denied due to no response of the letter, which I never received.
Generally an DACA application cannot be appealed, though if you can show that the reason you did not get any correspondence from USCIS was the fault of USCIS, then you might be able to address the issue. If it was your fault or that of the post office, then you will need to start over. Even if it...Read more »

An H-1B employee is only allowed to receive income from the H-1B employer as described in the H-1B petition. Working for any other employer would require a new petition or a "concurrent" H-1B petition from the second employer. H-1B also depends on an employer-employee relationship. One cannot run...Read more »
