Even if you are not inadmissible, you may have difficulty securing future non-immigrant visas. In addition, if your application is denied and you are placed in removal proceedings, but fail to appear because you departed the U.S., you could be ordered removed in your absence. If you are in a bona fide marriage and are concerned that your application for...

You should consult a CPA or tax attorney regarding the actual filing of the taxes. You may...

    Unfortunately, there is no way to bypass visa availability. Your friend's son will need to wait until an immigrant visa becomes available. He could potentially enter the United States with a non-immigrant visa such as an H-1B or L-1 visa depending upon his education and work experience. These non-immigrant visas allow for dual intent.
