    You have the right to chose counsel so if you locate a new attorney, the transition can be smooth as long as all sides will remain civil. In terms of getting money back, that is probably an issue addressed in the contract. so you should review that carefully and civilly talk to your current attorney to try to work it out.

    Juvenile Adjudications do not count as crimes for immigration purposes. Be careful as to what actions (conduct) you disclose about the charges at the interview. You may want to consult with an attorney to understand what actions if admitted may lead to a finding of not good moral character for naturalization or worse still, inadmissibility.

    Very unlikely you will have two biometrics even if you inquired about it. If you filed your AOS late September 2010, today is October 4, 2010, you may need to have a little bit more patience with USICS.

    He needs to hire a very good criminal lawyer to fight his case. An aggravated battery sounds serious and is likely going to be an aggravated felony if he is convicted and sentenced to 1 year or more. Your criminal lawyer should also work closely with an immigration attorney who clearly understands the immigration consequences of such a conviction.

    Tax returns are highly probative and generally required. Your list is fairly comprehensive. I would submit pictures after the wedding as well as health insurance, and your last will and testament (assuming she is named beneficiary) Ricky Malik, Esq. www.rmlegal.com

    I'm not sure how much information you will be able to find here about Canadian Immigration Adjudication standards. Certainly from a U.S. legal perspective, you should try to remain legal in the United States. Ricky Malik, Esq. www.rmlegal.com

    An H-1B is a professional visa which would require the equivalent of/or actual U.S. Bachelor's degree. The question is, what position would a Persian Restaurant have the requires a 4 year degree? Do other similarly situated restuaruants have degree holders in a position that would normally require such a degree and what is the theoretical or practical application of that degree in the position?

    You need to disclose this arrest if you apply for citizenship. In terms of whether it will affect your citizenship depends on the outcome of the case. If it was nolle prosequi or dismissed, the impact will likely be minimal.
