Kelli Y Allen's answer I would need more specific facts to fully analyze your case. If you do marry a US citizen, there is likely a path for you to gain permanent residency but the process depends on several factors. I recommend a full consultation with an immigration attorney.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer No, but it doesn’t matter. You don’t need to send your 2016 W2, only your most recent one—ideally 2018 but you can still submit 2017 until the end of March. You can get transcripts of W2s at your local IRS office or online.
Kelli Y Allen's answer You first need to determine whether she is subject to the 2-year foreign residency requirement. Then what you file when will be based on whether you are a US citizen or permanent resident. Consult with an immigration attorney for a full analysis of your case.
Allen C. Ladd's answer Your husband has only one child, correct? The child you have together, right? Then the answer is clear, he (the beneficiary) DOES have a child. That is exactly what the question is asking about.
If you have children through another relationship, they are his stepchildren, and it is my practice to list them as well, and when possible to identify them as his stepchildren, regardless of their age. Other attorneys may differ, but that is in my opinion the best way to approach the...
Allen C. Ladd's answer Answer "Yes" and explain on the attachment. Probably a good idea to prepare an affidavit as well, and see if you can get back-up from the state HHS agency. Hire a lawyer to help with this, it will make it less stressful and give you more control. Contact the state bar in your state for its lawyer referral service. You will likely get a low-cost or no-cost consultation and perhaps reduced fees.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer She cannot stay past the expiration date of her I-94. If you become a citizen, then she would not necessarily have to leave. There is no guarantee that she wouldn’t be deported, though. We suggest you speak with an immigration attorney about your case.
Carl Shusterman's answer A K-1 visa is a visa issued to the fiancé or fiancée of a United States citizen to enter the United States. A K-1 visa requires a foreigner to marry his or her U.S. citizen petitioner within 90 days of entry, or depart the United States. Once the couple marries, the foreign citizen can adjust status to become a lawful permanent resident of the United States (Green Card holder). Although a K-1 visa is legally classified as a non-immigrant visa, it usually leads to important immigration...
Carl Shusterman's answer H-1B visa holders are entitled to remain in the US in that status for a maximum period of six (6) years by statute. The six year maximum limitation can be reset upon the H-1B visa absence from the US for one year. Hence, once the H-1B visa holder completes her six (6) year term on H-1B visa, then departs the US for one full year, she is entitled to receive another six year term on H-1B visa. Such second six year term is subject to the numerical cap.
Elisha F Svosve's answer That really depends on the mistake made, the implications (if any), and as well as what the correct answer should have been on the application. He needs to contact an immigration lawyer for a full assessment of his case.
John Joseph Rizzo III's answer I believe the answer could change based on the facts. For instance, many people use SSDI and SSI interchangeably when they are very different programs. If you receive SSI, you should be automatically eligible for the fee waiver. If you receive SSDI, that will probably count against you when looking at the federal poverty levels. Veterans benefits would be similar. A pension should automatically grant eligibility, but compensation would count against you. If you could confirm the benefits...
If your asylum is sent to the Executive Office of Immigration Review, which is immigration court, then the DHS cannot approve the asylum claim. As a result, DHS plans to deport you unless you can prove to an immigration court that you qualify for asylum. The referral means that USCIS has denied your asylum claim.
It’s uncl why it denied the asylum. I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced...
