    The statute trumps the regulation. This is a question we frequently deal with in our office - refile or appeal? Given the fact that there is _some_ legal justification for the decision in this case, the speed with which N400s seem to be being processed around the country, _and_ the fact that the only issue with your 319 naturalization seems to be a timing issue, I'd probably refile. The only way you can be sure to have all of your options discussed and considered, would be to schedule an...

    As others have said, much depends on how he entered the US. If he entered with his own passport and a properly obtained visa, you may be able to file a standard adjustment of status package. If he made any misrepresentations to get a visa, or entered without inspection, you'll need to file a waiver application and he may have to obtain an immigrant visa at a consulate abroad. Since this matter deal with the unity and long term stability of your family, you really ought to consult with an...

    I think that my colleagues who indicated that the application will be denied are correct. I do not agree with my colleague who indicated that USCIS will "deport" your husband, because USCIS does not have the authority or jurisdiction to deport anyone - only an immigration judge can order someone removed from the United States. Whether USCIS will place your husband into removal proceedings by issuing him a notice to appear is a different question and completely up to the agency's discretion....

    Hello. We'd need to know more facts about your case to consider the reasons why your case was returned from a consulate. Regardless of the reason for return, you'd be well advised to schedule a consultation with an immigration attorney where the entirety of your case and circumstances can be confidentially considered.

    Yes. An approved I-130 does not give you any status in the United States. The approval notice says this in bold print. You should schedule a consultation with an immigration lawyer in San Diego to talk about the steps you need to take after the approval of an I-130 in order to obtain status in the United States like filing an I485 (if possible), starting a consular processing case with any required waivers, or potentially taking advantage of the new I-601A process. All of these potential...

    As Attorney Berman stated, there is nothing you can do to expedite a case subject to priority dates in the preference system. There may be other options that you might be able to take advantage of for your grandson can receive medical treatment in the United States - namely a B2 visitors visa. Because your daughter has a pending immigrant visa petition, however, I think that if you would like to explore the possibility of using a visitor's visa to enable your grandson to travel to the United...

    I agree with Attorney Vosbikian. There is a complex quota system and then a very proscribed visa issuance process that all visa applicants are subject to, and there is no real way to expedite this process. I like his idea of potentially seeking a B2 visa to come for the birth. That may well be achievable with good documentation, but you all would be well advised to make sure that he returns home to wait for his appointment at a consulate instead of overstaying his visa and remaining in the...

    If you feel that your husband is threatening your life or safety, you need to contact the police and/or contact a domestic violence agency in your area to see what your options for shelter and protection are. Then I think it would be wise to contact an AILA member in your area to discuss the specific facts of your case, the hearings you mention, and determine with a skilled immigration lawyer what you need to do going forward to preserve your status as a permanent resident. But before any...

  10. Alien granted Prosecutorial discretion ; the judge took a decision to administratively close removal proceedings. Whats next???

    All cases involving immigration court and ICE Officers demand an attorney, so if you have not already consulted with one - you really ought to. Administrative closure is essentially the same as pressing pause on a DVD. You are still in removal proceedings, it's just that there is no hearing scheduled for you in the future and there will not be another hearing scheduled until or unless you or DHS file a motion with the court to recalendar your case. The major benefit of this "pause" is...
