    The instructions are very helpful in providing you with examples of the kind of evidence you will need.

Consider seeking the advice of experienced counsel before submitting your application.

    The charges in this case appear particularly serious and as the other posts described, your brother should have proper representation in both states. The reason your brother should sit with a lawyer immediately is that the extradition process, a probation violation in NJ and a pending charge in Delaware all carry significant penalties and these decisions should be made in consideration of how each choice will effect what occurs with the other cases. Therefore, he needs to consult with counsel...

    If the relationship is between your brother and his son, it could simply mean that USCIS has reached another stage of review and has updated (or proceeded past) another part of the process. Don't panic yet. If there is any problem, your brother will receive a form requesting additional information.

    As the other attorneys have mentioned, this is a very serious charge and you should proceed very carefully, and only with the advice of experienced counsel. A full review of your case is necessary to determine how best to attack the State's case and the indictment. However, a motion to dismiss the indictment is possible short of going to trial, but as others have mentioned, they are rarely granted.
