I arrived in the USA in June 2018. I applied for my green card in September 2020. Until now I did not receive my green card. Since I already spent 4 Years in Usa and my mom is a US citizen, do you think that I'm eligible to fill out a citizenship application?
There is not information to know whether you derived U.S. citizenship through your mother when she naturalized, as this depends on a number of factors. I’m also uncertain if you applied for adjustment of status or an immigrant visa and your case was approved but you just never received your...Read more »
You will need to make a claim in the deceased's probate estate, assuming there is an estate. If the account has a beneficiary and there is no estate, you may be out of luck. Consult legal counsel if the check is big enough to be worthwhile.
You can do a letter or a lawsuit. You know your former business partner better than an attorney, so if you think the partner would be motivated o resolve if sent a letter then that's the way to go. If you think the partner would ignore the letter, then litigation is the way to go. I'm...Read more »
No written exchanges about the money. When he broke it off he asked her about it and she replied “I don’t give a f***” now after some stalking on her part she filed a warrant in debt for it. Does she have a case ?
It really depends on what was the basis of giving the $10,000 or the agreement (even if verbal) around the money. If it was really a gift, then your husband should be able to successfully defend the lawsuit. If you or he decides to hire an attorney, I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy...Read more »
Was in an atv accident with my daughter and a virginia state police charged me with reckless endangerment of a minor (no) and persuaded tennessee to extradite. I have not had my court date for the infraction to plead not guilty to this charge.
It appears that Tennessee issued a warrant of extradition for a misdemeanor which is usually non-etraditable and the VA State police were simply following up that. You may want to ask your former Tennessee attorney for advice on what is going on there. Also advise that attorney that you want to...Read more »

Yes, you have a few options: 1) send them a demand letter threatening a lawsuit if they don't pay you; or 2) pass on the letter and simply fie a lawsuit. Before doing either, I'd check to confirm that your agreement does not have any language in that conditions your payment on payment...Read more »
My father is looking to immigrate to the US from Canada. He has an assault on his record (which occurred in 1995) for which he was arrested and later had his sentence suspended with 12 months of probation. In Canada, this is considered a criminal conviction from what I am told. How damaging... Read more »
Should the record be pardoned? Should we just leave it as it and apply. The situation was a one off situation and corrective measures were taken and there have been no other situations that have come after.
We do not know the date when the crime was committed to see how remote it may be from your application now. Not sure if there was more than an arrest and what exactly the person was convicted for if in fact they were convicted. In any event, USCIS will be focusing on whether the criminal conviction...Read more »
My mother died and had three life insurance policy’s. I was the sole beneficiary for all but one. The last one states it goes to the estatee, nobody was named. Who will that policy go to? Will it split between all children or will we have to go to court for one person to get it?

The personal representative of the estate should have opened an estate bank account and obtained a taxpayer identification number for the estate. The personal representative must qualify through an...Read more »
My mother has dementia, and she just married the wrong person. This man has decided to give up, moved me in with them to take care of her, told me he's not spending any more money and that I need to get a power of attorney over her.
One would think that would be his responsibility. Am... Read more »

If you're going to evict based on non-payment or property damage, then you do need to give notice and evict through the court process. If you're evicting based on a person who has no tenancy rights then arguably no notice is required, but even then, the safest thing to do is give notice....Read more »
Have you asked your siblings or (step-)mother or other relatives if there is a Will or someone is filing probate? Did he have assets, and should you file as Administrator? A consult with a lawyer discussing your situation might be helpful, and, if that lawyer opens the estate, you’ll be repaid...Read more »
I was struck by an angry Road rager on January 31st 2020. Of course the road ranger lied in court and pretended that we were both at fault. So the judge, confused, dismiss the case. I appealed, have no attorney, and now we are headed to trial soon. Ironically enough, when I finally found another... Read more »

I don't know what you mean by withdrawn. You can go to court and plead not guilty but I don't know any judge that would accept that mistake as a legal defense if the identifying information on the ticket is otherwise correct. You may be able to get it reduced or dismissed by hiring a...Read more »
Ex-spouse received fraudulent spousal support payments for two years. The ex-spouse also did not notify the other party of the new location as stated in the court order. The divorce decree was entered by the Norfolk Circuit Court in the state of Virginia.
