I-751 typically takes 8-10 months depending on your jurisdiction so I wouldn't be too worried. Nevertheless, you should call USCIS customer service line and ask to put in a service request. 1 (800) 375-5283 You will need your receipt number when you call.
If you do not see a resolution or receive correspondence in the next 30-60 days, you should also consider making an infopass appointment at your local immigration office to check on the case personnally as that local office will be the...
What is your wife's status in the U.S.? Is she a US Citizen (USC) or Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR=green card holder)?
If she is a USC, you are likely eligible to adjust status in the U.S.. However, I would highly recommend that you consult an attorney about your eligibility.
If she is a Lawful Permanent Resident, you are looking at waiting about 3 more years until you can file for adjustment of status. Currently, only spouses of LPRs who filed the I-130 before October 2009 are...
I agree with my colleague. You may adjust status to permanent resident as long as you were inspected and admitted. You were admitted on a visitors visa and, thus, have basic eligibility to file the adjustment of status. I also recommend that you hire an attorney to assist you. It will avoid any legal issues which may delay or result in denial of your case.
You should immediately contact an immigration attorney to review the details of your termination and when it occurred. Upon termination, your H-1B status also terminated. However, since you likely have been cap counted in the past 6 years you can file a non-cap counted H-1B case if you qualify for the new position. You may need to depart the U.S., however, and obtain visa stamping abroad before working in the new position. You should speak to someone quickly about the potential for the...
I agree with USCIS. We've seen the Cap march backward before. The cap for both Masters and Bachelor's will be met quite early. We are filing all petitions on April 1st without exception. Any later is a risk. We have definitely seen a marked increase in H-1B filings this year over recent years including the reentrant of banking institutions and entrance of new companies and mortgage BPOs into the H-1B process. So definitely get the case filed April 1st.
Submit your most recently filed taxes. Because your 2012 taxes are not due, you need not submit them right now. If you have filed 2012, however, then do submit them with the 485. If you are called for a 485 interview, you will need to bring the 2012 taxes to the interview anyway.
Maybe, but you really need an actual transcript showing physical presence (i.e. attendance in school) in December 2000. Close this loop before filing to save a lot of grief later. Also, make sure your case is being processed by an attorney who is familiar with 245i. They will advise you on these documents and will ensure you file a complete application and that those documents show that you fully qualify for 245i.
I agree. There are not enough facts here to answer. Generally, however, voluntary departure versus a deportation order is preferable. Have the facts of your case reviewed by an immigration attorney before you make any decision or sign any VD documents.
You should consult with an immigration attorney in your area to evaluate your customs violation and ensure there are no issues. You will then need to provide the documents advised by that attorney which, in general, will include the final disposition and arrest record and proof that you paid the related fines.
