My USC husband might refuse to go the interview because we filed jointly but he has been cheating that I found out about later. I confronted him but a few months ago when I confronted again he got mad and said he will divorce me soon. Didn't do anything its... Read more »
There is so much happening based on what you have indicated that it would be best if you found a lawyer to talk with. The USC can't be forced to go to the 751 interview and if he divorces you and sends the decree to USCIS the application is...Read more »

People are convicted of things they did not do all the time. The trier of fact decides what are "facts" and what are "lies". In municipal or family court that is a judge. In Criminal Indictable cases that is a jury. So even though you think this is something you haven't...Read more »
I am a recently naturalized US Citizen. My kids are eligible for derivative citizenship, but won't get their US passports in time before we are to travel to Canada. We have not applied for N-600 or passports for them. Can they travel using their still valid green cards, even though they have... Read more »
Depending on the method of travel your children may be admitted back into the USA with just their green cards but they should have a travel document(s) or passport. I assume you are flying. I suggest you check with the airlines.
An affidavit of support is not required when you file the FORM I -751 to change your conditional status to permanent resident status. However, you will need to submit evidence of your marriage to your U.S. citizen husband.
If you are a US citizen he may be able to adjust his status to that of a permanent resident. But there are many questions an immigration attorney would need to ask him to advise him as to what he can/should do. I suggest you do a consultation with an attorney to get started. May such as myself...Read more »

I want to ask about something called the 5 year "garcia" rule; which mainly states that after 5 years, the federal government cannot rescind and deport someone if they find out that the green...

If you are unable to find the information you are looking for online, then you may need to hire an attorney to provide you with a written legal analysis. This type of work is usually done on an hourly basis but not many attorneys would be interested in this type of work. Best wishes!
If A child gets abused by both his parents, and he informs the police, would they deport him and his parents. or would he be given to a foster family/orphanage. would they get citizenship? or get deported?
There are several places that can help the child. The child's status has to be explained to the police and there are family crisis agencies that can help. The courts sometimes have to become involved. Deportation depends on many things. Getting citizenship also depends on many things. Check...Read more »
It sounds as though you want to file a writ of habeas corpus, and attorney fees vary by lawyer and complexity of a filing, so your best option is to speak to several attorneys who actually do that work to get an idea of price. Not all criminal attorneys have experience in filing habeas claims and...Read more »
I currently have a conditional green card. I am supposed to submit form i-751 to remove conditions soon. However, I no longer wish to pursue my residency here in the united states. Am I able I file form i-407 to abandon permanent residency instead of i-751? I will be going back to my country.... Read more »
You do not need to file form I-751 if you wish to file form I-407. Your permanent residency will expire if you do not remove the condition anyways but it would be best to file form 407 so that USCIS is aware that you voluntarily gave up your residency, not that you failed to renew. Best wishes!

The delay may not be an issue. This is due to challenges resulting from the last U.S.C.I.S. Administration. You should be notified, but usually the applicants are notified if their address appears on the forms as the mailing address.
