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...
Michael Hugh Carlin's answer The answer to the question depends on a number of different things. If the person is detained by Homeland Security (ICE), then the process many times takes weeks or months, although depending on circumstances, could take a year or longer. If the person is not detained, then proceedings in Immigration Court could take years, sometimes many years.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer Those aren’t the kind of things that in and of themselves would lead to someone’s deportation; however, depending on where you and you husband live, and depending on the relationship between Immigration and Customs Enforcement and local law enforcement, being in the legal system could lead to his detention simply because he could be identified as someone in the US without authorization.
Edit Stelczner's answer Most importantly, what was the reason for the denial? Was it a marriage-based immigrant visa? Review of your entire documentation is necessary for a tailored answer. Generally for a nonimmigrant visa he will face scrutiny given that he already presented immigrant intent.
Edit Stelczner's answer Generally you may petition a relative as a green card holder and then upgrade the petition when you become a citizen. It seems however that she may be able to get her green card before you become a citizen. You need to consider the visa bulletin when filing a petition because a green card holder’s petition for a spouse does not warrant an immediate visa availability (unlike a citizen’s petition). Congrats on your upcoming marriage!
