Kevin L Dixler's answer
If you married your husband based upon a K-1 visa, then you have proven that you entered the marriage in good faith. The only issue is whether the I-864 must be completed by your husband. There are significant legal arguments. I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any other complications. Good luck.

Recently it has been taking two to three months for a spousal visa if the spouse is in the USA otherwise it can take up to a year.

It also depends on whether waivers are needed

The cost depends on where your spouse is located and whether you need a cosponor or whether your spouse needs a waiver.

Unless you have additional documents to prove otherwise it does not make sense appealing. He needed to be present in the USA for 18 months before applying. Every time he stayed out more than 180 days before returning you had to start counting towards the five year presence

The $16,400 figure is for active military service members who are sponsoring a spouse or minor child. It is 100% of federal poverty for a household of 2. 125% of federal poverty for a household of two is $20,575. For a household of four it is $31,375. It doesn’t matter how many jobs you have, so long as you meet the obligation. You can also include assets or get a joint sponsor.

Q: Hi I’m wondering how go by bringing my husband back on a visa he was charge with conspiracy did time then deported

Kevin L Dixler's answer
Some parents can never return to the U. S. There are times when exceptional work is undertaken with quite a few hours invested to overcome a permanent bar. A conspiracy to commit a crime can be a permanent bar without substantial work and patience. This, to prove to the satisfaction of the USCIS that a situation exists. This requires relevant documentation. This also takes more time than clients expect.

This seems like a job for an immigration attorney. As a result, I strongly...

Was he convicted of a crime? If so, what was the crime?

See an immigration attorney before he gets deported. He is entitled to a hearing before an Immigration Judge.

Shan Dimitris Potts' answer
Hello,

Regarding filing two petitions simultaneously, it shouldn't create a issue as USCIS deals with the applications separately, even more so when you apply for asylum. If you are self-petitioning for an I-140 the process is completely different compared to an employer sponsoring you and petitioning on your behalf. I suggest you talk to an immigration attorney in private regarding this situation before filing any petitions, as USCIS does not refund the fees.

All the best....

Shan Dimitris Potts' answer
You may be able to apply for Asylum but note that the processing time and the interview scheduling times are very long and it might go even longer now that the elections are approaching. I suggest you talk to an immigration attorney to find out if there are other benefits that might help in the short term. Many immigration attorneys including me offer free consultations, make use of the consultations.

All the best.
