Max,

You can only file a visa petition for your brother once you become a US citizen. You most likely would do that through a process called Naturalization. You will have to have your permanent resident card for nearly five years to file Naturalization. Even then the process for getting an immigrant visa for a brother or sister can take many years. Decades in some cases. He should keep entering the DV lottery as long as it exists - that would be a faster way here if he wins. Good luck!

Answered on May 6, 2018
Salim U. Shaikh's answer
Sufficient details are missing in order to render a specific advice. Hence, please elaborate : how long you have been living as tenant to the current LL? Do you have a lease agreement? If so, there will be terms that govern eviction or termination of contract and she is bound by that. Or otherwise, LL has to formally deliver you a written notice to vacate the premises stating certain cause of actions, etc., which is always subject to challenge / recourse in the court of your jurisdiction....

Joseph Kelly Levasseur's answer
This is a landlord/tenant question not a civil rights question, only the government can violate your civil rights. There are not enough facts to indicate the type of Lease or rental agreement you have, but in order to force an eviction, it has to be done through the courts. make sure you have been served properly and the rules for service and rules for a proper eviction are done correctly. The laws of the state (RSA) protect both parties fairly equally, but tenants do have rights. Best to hire...

Answered on May 4, 2018
Timothy Denison's answer
Sure. Send them a letter putting them on notice of when and where to get the truck. If they haven’t responded in a year and a half, they’re not going to. Give them 30 days and keep a copy of your letter as proof. After they don’t respond, do with it as you will.
