I need help filling out my application to become a us resident. Can ppl help for free? Or how much would it be? (Low resources)
In order to determine the cost of your case your attorney will first need to determine if you are eligible to apply for your immigration benefits. This is actually for your protection. Unfortunately most people who are not familiar with immigration mistakenly believe that you just need to fill out the right forms to be approved. If you need assistance and you have limited resources your best bet would be to contact a legal aid society or non-profit community organization that can provide you free legal advice and assistance. At the very least it would be beneficial for you to pay for a legal consultation so that you know you are heading in the right direction before you apply for your immigration benefits. I hope my response was helpful.See question

Based on your question it is likely that Immigration may find that you that you are both at fault. In order to protect yourself It would be in your best interest to seek out confidential legal advice to assist you with your situation. You will need to speak with an attorney who is knowledgeable in both immigration and family law matters.See question
I filed my 1-751 form last week and I received the notice receipt today, Stating that my conditional status has been extended for one year and they will send another letter to go get my finger printing done. The letter also said "if you have not d...
I understand your question and your frustration. However, there is no need to worry. The letter that you have received from Immigration is the standard letter that is sent to all applicants who are applying to remove the condition on their two-year conditional green card. Immigration has opted to extend your conditional green card to allow you the benefit of working, traveling, driving etc. while they process your I-751 to decide whether or not to remove the conditions from your green card. They extend your "green card status" so that you have proof that you are still a permanent resident of the United States. I am not able to give you a definite answer on the documents that you submitted to Immigration because I do not these documents to review. If you should need further assistance, please feel free to contact our office at 678-736-5600. I hope that my response was helpful to you.See question

I always let my clients know the real truth about their case (the good and the bad). I believe that clients should be told the truth so that they can make an informed decision as to whether or not they wish to pursue their case.

My I130 (mother for unmarried son) petition was approved but I'm not sure if it would be best to file the form I-485 on my own or have a lawyer do it on my behalf.
It is not required that you have an attorney represent you in your case. However, it is important to know that your I-485 application is not just an application but rather it is a legal case. In addition, the US government is fully aware of the laws regarding your case and unfortunately they are not going to provide you with any assistance. Therefore, if your case is important to you and you wish to do everything possible to get your case approved the first time, I would recommend that you retain an attorney or at least schedule your consultation. I am originally from Jamaica and I have personally been through the immigration status. I now use my expertise to show my clients the best ways to get their cases approved the FIRST time while reducing processing times and avoiding those immigration red flags that can result in delay, denials, and deportation. Please feel free to contact us.

Da courts frown on dees fad dat dnt take part n rising his children. but u hv dees dad dat wanna b n his children life. hv a hand n rising them. but da mother want let him. Legmition taking a lil longer
I definitely agree with the other attorney's response to your question. The courts are not interested in the romantic relationship between parents but rather the relationship and the interaction of the parents and the child. Children and parents have a legal right to see each other and spend quality time together. If the mother is not allowing the father to interact with his children this must be thoroughly documented and brought to the attention of the court in a organized and respectful manner.See question
Does the new immigration reform related laws in March 2013 especially related to I601 changes apply to non resident alien(L1) with lawful presence or does it apply only to those who have unlawful presence in the US.
The new provisional waiver (I-601) is for individuals who entered the United States in unlawful status. I know that immigration laws and new regulations can be confusing. In order to answer these questions my firm is currently hosting an OPEN HOUSE at our office every Friday. There is no cost for your visit and you may come in and receive information about the waiver process and the latest news on the immigration reform proposal. You may contact us directly at 404-992-6506 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.See question
Should I spend the time and the money with a lawyer here and try to marry him while he is detained if allowed. Or should he leave on his own and then I fly to his country and marry him. He has been in the U.S over ten years and overstayed his vis...
Thanks for posting your question. In my practice I have found that it is always worth the investment to try and obtain legal status for an individual while that individual is in the United States as opposed to when he or she has left the United States. If you are a United States citizen then your fiancé will be immediately eligible to apply for permanent residence once he is married to you provided he legally entered the US on his visa and he has no other criminal history or deportations that would disqualify him from applying. However, now that he is in removal you all will have to work with the court to gain permission to marry and to apply for his status. If he is deported or if he voluntarily agrees to depart the United States he will be barred from re-entering the United States for 10 years because he had overstayed his visa for more than 365 days. In order to regain entry into the United States Immigration must agree to waive this penalty. This waiver of the 10 year penalty is very hard to obtain. If he remains in the United States there is no need to apply for a waiver of the 10 year penalty because the 10 year penalty is only triggered if he departs the United States. Based on the fact that his only criminal offense is a DWI it appears that your fiancé has a favorable case for permanent residence provided that you all can prove that you have a genuine relationship. In order to proceed with his case I would strongly suggest that you immediately contact an experienced immigration attorney. Your case appears to be a good one but it will involve the Immigration Court and the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. You do not want to tackle this case without legal representation. Best of luck to you and your fiancé.See question
