IF yes, on what grounds can it be blocked or canceled ? I understand people feel very good in immigrating their relatives such as spouses, parents and siblings. However, in my case I fear my own married life which is hanging by a thread will be over. There is a very big background on it. Please,... Read more »
An I-130 confers no benefit and only confirms that there is a bona-fide marriage or other direct relationship, i.e, siblings, parent-child, etc. So, what's to block? Those predicate facts are true or false... Nonetheless, petitioner does not have to sign; does not have to file I-130--but if already...Read more »
Technically, no. The date should extend the deadline of his green card so that it is no longer expired. The only issue we see is if something comes up as a result of the investigation into his continued eligibility for permanent residence.
If upon entering the US as a green card holder, a border security officer deems that I have not maintained residency in the US, what happens next? My understanding is that the border officer takes the green card, stamps my passport with a stamp that is good for re-entry for one year, and issues a... Read more »
This is not always the case. I strongly recommend an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any other complications. Find an attorney who will explain the range of discretion that CBP has at a port of entry before you take any further...Read more »
Will he have an issue getting it renewed? Should he renew it before we divorce so it's good for another 10 years or if he files for it's renewal now would anybody give him an issue and deny the renewal?
The divorce is unlikely to be an issue for simple lawful permanent resident card renewal. However, the USCIS may try review other factors, like his criminal record, if any, among other issues considered on the form due to the long delay. He should consider an appointment with a competent and...Read more »
The K1 visa is a single entry visa. If you leave before adjusting status, you will not be able to return without either Advanced Parole or starting over with a marriage based petition. As this is a complex issue, you should contact an experienced immigration attorney for advice.
My daughter is a US citizen and applied for K-1visa in August 2013. She and her spouse were accepted for a Fiancé VISA and they got married within 90 days of her Husbands arrival. He got accepted for a Conditional Green Card and obtained it. He has a social security number for work and had a... Read more »
There is nothing you can do directly to get them tourist visas. Usually tourist visas are denied for failure to show non-immigrant intent. This is not something you can overcome on their behalf. Rather, each of them will have to be able to prove sufficient ties to Brazil (ex. family, job,...Read more »
Yes. Stop wasting time asking silly questions here on Justia.
Meantime, study hard, make really good grades, get an undergraduate degree that will be there to fall back on if you flame out, apply to as many law schools as you can afford to, if several schools accept you, select the one...Read more »
More information is needed. Why did they remain outside of the U.S. for over a year?
A lawful permanent resident green card holder is presumed by CBP to abandon their green card status when they do not make their principal residence in the U.S. for more than one year. If there is any...Read more »
My income was qualified to meet the low income so I’m about to apply to the organization to get an approval from the affordable housing program to rent the studio. I’m in the process of getting green card (EB3) and about to apply PERM. Will USCIS be able to track and affect getting a greencard?
It is unlikely that will be an issue, but as I'm sure you know, there has been a lot of discussion from the administration about this sort of issue, so there's no guarantee that things won't change to where this does become a problem. But for right now, it should be okay.
Presumably you were given a notice to appear (NTA) in immigration court. If so, that complicates the process tremendously. You need to seek guidance from an experienced immigration attorney as there are extra requirements for the I-130 filing while in proceedings. Also, if indeed you were...Read more »
There is no specific paper that verifies a relationship. In a spousal petition you must provide evidence that you are legally married (marriage certificate to current spouse and proof that any former marriages have been terminated) and that you have a bona fide relationship. This includes...Read more »
Probably your own country would be best. Unless you have permission to travel to Canada, Mexico, or a Caribbean island. That would depend on your rights as a citizen of your own country, and what kind of visa (if any) that Canada, Mexico, etc. require. Go to the webpage of Canada, Mexico, etc....Read more »
