    In or der to qualify for the EB-1 category, you must have extensive documentation showing sustained national or international acclaim and recognition in the field of expertise. You must continue work in the field in which they have extraordinary ability. Your achievement, though noteworthy, appear to be a little dated. From reading your question, your specializations seem to be varied from art to engineering, and I'm not sure you would qualify. I think you meet with an attorney to...

    Then you have a removal order as you did not depart timely with your voluntary "departure." Your wife can file for you. If she wants to file for you in Turkey, then she must live there for a period of time (usually a minimum of 60 days) and then apply. You need to check with the U.S. Consulate in Istambul to make sure they allow for direct filing. Given you have a removal order, you will have to obtain a waiver and permission to reapply after removal. Your case is complicated and you...

    As my colleagues have stated, after you apply for an assuming you are granted Deferred Action, you will have to determine if you want to apply for a travel document (on form I-131). You should with legal counsel carefully determine if your travel is worth the potential risk. Despite the recent ruling in Matter of Arrabally, foreign travel may have future negative consequences for you.

    Generally, if he is not issued a bond by the criminal magistrate/judge, he will have to wait until his criminal case is completed. Once he is released from criminal custody, either on bond or the conclusion of his criminal case, ICE has 48 hours to pick him up, assuming he has a detainer. The frist opportunity for his release from ICE will be when they pick him up. If they do not release him on a bond/ankle bracelet/recognizance, then they will likely transfer him to one of the ICE detention...

  7. I lost my greencard but i am qualified to apply for citizenship. should i just apply for citizenship or apply for replacement GC

    You don't NEED to get a new greencard, but without it you don't have proof of your legal status which can be a problem these days of stepped up enforcement, especially as I note you are in Maryland (like myself). Further, you will not be able to travel internationally and return to the U.S. As USCIS Baltimore is processing citizenship apps very quickly, if you chose to forgo the I-90, you should get your N400 interview in less than 3 months. Your call, I would recommend renewal.

    More information is needed. Were you convicted criminally or has it been alleged in the Notice to Appear? You need to hire a good litigator and determine you avenues for relief. If you have immediate relatives who are U.S. Citizens, then you may be able to file for Cancellation of Removal despite the fake GC/SS. If you had a petition or labor certification filed on your behalf pre-April 30, 2001, you may have another option. There are likely more, but you need to hire a good attorney to...

    It sounds as if his removal was reinstated which led to his second deportation meaning a citizen family member cannot file to get them back. If in doubt, file the I-130 and you will get your answer from the U.S. Consulate in his country. Ricky Malik, Esq. Office in Takoma Park, MD www.rmlegal.com

    Generally unpaid unsecured debt (such as credit cards) will not be a problem. If however the credit card companies were able to take some sort of criminal action, in other words claiming you somehow broke the law, then it may be a problem, but I don't think they could show any willful criminal action. I believe at best they would only seek civil remedy which will not negativly impact you for immigration. That being said, I have encountered this situation many times recently. What I've...
