    As an initial matter, a paralegal cannot give legal advice. A paralegal does not necessarily have any legal training whatsoever. Only a licensed attorney can give legal advice. I encourage you to speak with an experienced immigration attorney about the matter prior to filing any documents on behalf of your mother. Your mother will likely have an immigrant intent problem. It does not really matter how long you wait if the intent to immigrate was present. I would recommend that she not seek...

    You should list all children on the Form N-400 Application for Naturalization as the question specifically asks you to list all children. A failure to disclose all your children could be viewed as misrepresentation as well as go against good moral character as false testimony. That being said, the fact that you failed to disclose the children you had out of wedlock on your Form I-485 Application for Adjustment of Status is serious. You were required to designate all children on this form as...

    A person can file a writ of habeas corpus with the appropriate federal court assuming he is subject to a final order of removal. Whether the request will be granted will hinge upon several factors including whether the United States government can establish he is a national security threat or danger the community, whether he has hindered attempts to remove him (i.e. refusing to cooperate with efforts to secure travel documents), etc. I would suggest the individual retain an experienced attorney...

    IR1 visa was issued to you at the US post abroad. When you came here, you were supposed to receive your Permanent Resident Card within several weeks thus concluding the combined IR-1 - Green card process. IR is just an immigrant visa, which allows you to enter the USA. It was issued to you because at the time of the visa issuance your marriage with US citizen spouse passed its second anniversary. Otherwise you would have been issued a CR1 visa. Your divorce thus should not deprive you of your...
