Kelli Y Allen's answer If your father is a permanent resident he should try not to stay out of the U.S. for 6 months at one time. If it does, it will delay his eligibility for naturalization. There are accommodations that can be made for the naturalization process based on age and length of time he has been a permanent residence. Consult an immigration attorney for a full analysis of his case.
Deron Edward Smallcomb's answer There are definitely options if you are willing to invest a significant amount of money in the USA. Feel free to contact us or another experienced immigration lawyer for assistance.
Deron Edward Smallcomb's answer With the difficulty of obtaining citizenship increasing, and the fact that each case is unique, you should contact an experienced immigration attorney to discuss what documents are relevant to your situation.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer When your son married, the petition that you filed on his behalf was terminated. The only way to get it reinstated is to get it annulled and try to show that the marriage was not valid in the first place. Divorce in itself is not sufficient. Otherwise you will need to file a new petition for him.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer We recommend that you speak with your school’s DSO. Generally under the circumstances you will want to go through the proper channels so you do not jeopardize your ability to reenter the US. It is more than likely a question of notifying the proper authorities of your intentions and then following all instructions for withdrawing.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer It is likely that the I-765/I-131 has been approved or will be soon. If your current attorney is not responding to your inquiries, you might want to consider shifting your case to another who can request your file from the first attorney.
Deron Edward Smallcomb's answer To answer your question, I would want to know how long you have been a Green Card holder. Feel free to reach out to my office, or another experienced immigration attorney, to discuss your case.
Deron Edward Smallcomb's answer Are you talking about bringing her to the United States? Are you a citizen? If so, that very detailed process should be discussed with an experienced immigration attorney.
Deron Edward Smallcomb's answer Without knowing how old your daughter is, it is difficult to answer that question. I recommend you contact a competent immigration attorney to discuss your case. Good luck!
Kelli Y Allen's answer If you meet all other eligibility requirements, yes. You and your wife can each apply. The process for children depends upon their ages. I suggest consulting with an immigration attorney to discuss all aspects of the case.
Kelli Y Allen's answer Even if the case is expunged, you will still need to disclose the arrest and charge on any immigration paperwork and be prepared to show documentation of the dismissal. Have all of that with you when you go to the consulate and it should not present a problem. I would advise a consultation with an immigration attorney to review the documentation and review any issues prior to leaving the U.S.
Allen C. Ladd's answer I don't believe the USCIS action has any effect on your B1B2 visa ... but you will have to answer questions on arrival, clearing US immigration about the delay. You should be OK if you can convince them that, despite the short overstay period, you have no intention of overstaying this time. Best to bring with you proof of your work, etc. arrangements upon return to India ... with specific dates. Good luck.
Kevin L Dixler's answer No, you should be able to renew, online. However, it may take a while for the biometrics and new card to come in the mail. You are obligated to update the card, but you are still considered a lawful permanent resident. It is best to renew before the card expires, because you can be disadvantaged, if you need to apply for a new job. Good luck.
