    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...

    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...

    Based on your question I have assumed that you received a ticket for failing to stop at a stop light. This is a minor traffic ticket. Minor traffic citations do not usually have any impact on obtaining U.S citizenship. However it is best to cover all your bases. It would be beneficial for you to pay your ticket and then obtain a court certified copy from the court that you have paid your ticket in full to present at your interview. In addition, if you have any other traffic citations or...

I understand the anxiety and worry that goes with trying to get your case approved. I now use my expertise to show my clients the best ways to get their cases approved. I always let my clients know the real truth...

    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...

    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....

  10. How do da courts look at a mother who keep children out of his life becuz she is mad wit him?

    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.
