While filing for my marriage base green card, I realized that I sent an outdated version. I have yet to receive a confirmation that they have received the paperwork but wanted to know if there were a way to fix this without having to pay for the paperwork again. Is there a number to dial so that I... Read more »
I am currently getting ready to file for a K1 visa for my fiance. I have not found anything online that tells me a definite answer on this. I have a CCDW and own multiple guns. I am located in Kentucky.
Check with your state for exact requirements on these activities. Go back to the CCDW people, they may know. I expect that AT LEAST permanent residence is required. Your fiancée should have PR about 6 months after wedding and filing application for PR and interview at USCIS. So that may help...Read more »
She can adjust status to obtain her green card but if you married her within 90 days of her entering the states with a tourist visa then expect enhanced interrogation at your green card interview as to her true intent. Consider working with an attorney to help you. Counsel anywhere in the USA can...Read more »
Page 8, Part 6 of the I-485 asks to indicate the total number of all living children, which includes stepchildren … my wife, who is my sponsor, has 3 adult children from previous marriages. Technically, they are my Stepchildren, but they are already US Citizens by birth. How do I proceed with this?
So my H1 visa has been expired and we have applied for extensions after few days! N I got my receipt for new extension. So there’s 15days gap between expiry and new receipt date. While I didn’t work in this 15days, I started working after I got my receipt. But while my h1 extension is under... Read more »
My husband is in the military and is getting stationed in Germany next December that is December 2020. I am in his orders and i am aware that I qualify for expedite citizenship. I wanted to know how many days ahead can I apply for the citizenship??
I will not be signing anything to help with the process. Also my spouse is military, naturalized U.S. citizen with a Florida residency. I am a natural US citizen born in Missouri and we were married in MO. It is my understanding state residency can influence marital property. I will be coming into... Read more »
You can look up Form I-864 Affidavit of Support and read the instructions to find out what it means to become the financial sponsor for an intending immigrant. Basically it is a contract with the government stating that you can support the immigrant and will not allow them to become a "public...Read more »
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".... 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... 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 »
My husband and I were married in March of this year and he is trying to go through the process for citizenship but in the meantime can he still adopt my daughter even if he is not a citizen?
