    When answering this question, note that they are asking about your residence. You have to be a resident continuously for 5 years immediately preceding the date of filing the application. See INA § 316(a). Under INA §101(a)(33), residence is defined as a place of abode, an actual dwelling place in fact, without regard to intent. Domicile or intent is not relevant in this definition. Hence, continuous residence does not mean that you cannot be absent from the U.S. 8 C.F.R. § 316.5(c)(...

    Thank you for your question. Generally, as long as you don't engage in unauthorized employment while on a visa, or in this case, the visa waiver program, you may volunteer your time with an organization; that is, engaging in activities where salary or compensation is not provided in return. In your case, however, it appears that you may be receiving room and board, in exchange for your services. Room and board may be construed as compensation. You may be able to rebut this presumption...

    I agree with attorney Ekaette Patty-Anne Eddings. The visitor visa seems ideal here. I would also add, and regarding proof, you show ties (home, family, job) to your native country, to convince the adjudicator that you will return after your visit. Good luck.

    Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, based on my experience, a letter from a Congressman will not improve your chances. Immigration law is a creature of statute, and therefore, Immigration Judges are bound statutorily, and have little in the way of discretion, generally. However, if Government Counsel (I assume that is who you meant when you referred to "The office") agrees to a deferred action, which is a separate scenario than correspondence from a Congressman, a judge may be...

    Howard is absolutely point, and I also empathize with your predicament. You should make sure that your conditions are removed, and I would add, you should pursue the naturalization process as soon as possible. Good luck to you.

    You needn't worry about compromising your status, and you don't have to wait for your card to go to school. You are a Legal Permanent Resident, therefore, you may attend school, and yes, apply for financial aid. Congratulations.
