    I agree with attorney Anderson. Also, far more information will be needed for any attorney to evaluate your daughters' situation and possibilities of relief. For example, what is your status? What is their mother's status? Are they in the United States,? If so, how did they enter and when? All of these factors, and many more must be considered in trying to arrive at a viable solution for your daughters. My suggestion is that you have a consultation with an experienced immigration attorney to...

  3. Do you need a lawyer to apply for US citizenship? What are the advantages?

    The short answer is "no", you can represent yourself in any immigration matter. However, having an experienced immigration attorney representing you significantly reduces the possibility of something going wrong and "derailing" the application process. Once an immigration case gets of track, months, if not years can be lost. Moreover, Immigration law is very complex with nuances. Certainly an experienced immigration attorney is more likely to recognize and address potential issues before they...

    I aggre with attorney Mulder. Based upon his aggravated felony and drug crime, it is very unlikely that your significant other will ever be permitted to legally enter the United States.

  6. Will my son's disability as being deaf qualify serve as a waiver of hardship for my husband (illegal alien)

    Certainly your husband may has a claim of hardship. However, many factors must be considered before a waiver is granted. I agree with my colleague that you need to consult with an experienced immigration attorney, preferably one with experience in waivers, before proceeding. Regarding whether your husband has been grandfathered under 245(i) I agree that the Freedom of Information Act Request (FOIA) is the way to go.

    First, since you have an immigration lawyer representing you, you need to follow her advice. The second interview may reflect anything from an error to an unresolved issue that was discovered by the Service after your first interview. Although you don't specify, the location of the second interview may be telling. Communicate with your attorney and if satisfied follow her advice/instruction. If not satisfied, consult with another.

  8. H4 to H1 stuck in "Administrative processing" -> Can we get H4 stamped? What documents and what will be the process?

    I agree with my colleague. "Administrative Processing" is a general term covering many things from security checks to processing functions. Generally, there is not much one can due to move a file along at that point. In this situation the Consulate will not likely issue the H4 unless the H1B is withdrawn. Check with your companies immigration attorney, or your own, to determine how best to proceed. Good luck!

    You must speak with a family lawyer to determine which state would have jurisdiction over your matter. Generally, this is based upon length of time of domicile in either state.
