No one can reliably tell you what will be in the final law, how long it will take to pass, or whether it will pass at all. Anyone who is telling you otherwise is likely a fraudster who is looking to take off with your money. If you or your friends have case-specific immigration questions, I suggest that you consult with an immigration attorney.
You can obtain an audio recording of the proceedings before the IJ by contacting the clerk of the Immigration Court where the proceedings took place. I would not recommend that you take on a BIA appeal on your own. Hire an immigration attorney who can help obtain the necessary recordings and assist you in preparing an appeal.
You are not eligible at this time. You must wait until you have been a lawful permanent resident for 3 years, and you must prove that you are still married to the same US citizen at the time that you apply for citizenship.
The online case status check function on the USCIS website is not always accurate. If you divorced while your application was pending, you are no longer eligible for Adjustment of Status based on that marriage. Therefore, the denial letter you received is the most accurate reflection of your current immigration status. Because your application for Adjustment of Status was denied, it is possible that you will be placed in removal proceedings. You need to meet with an immigration lawyer as soon...
These are very serious charges and are very likely deportable offenses. Your friend needs to hire a criminal attorney who will work closely with an immigration attorney to accomplish a criminal disposition that is least likely to get your friend deported.
Because your husband entered lawfully, he is eligible for adjustment of status based on marriage to you. However, there are certain issues with your case, including, as you already pointed out, your lack of income. You may need to explore obtaining a joint sponsor for the Affidavit of Support. You should also speak to an immigration attorney regarding any other possible issues with your case.
Dobriy den! Given the new anti-gay law in Russia, this process is not going to be as straight-forward as it would be for a heterosexual couple. Doing a fiance petition, or getting married in Russia, could be very dangerous for your boyfriend in light of the political situation in his country. This is going to take some strategizing and I would highly recommend a consultation with an immigration attorney before you proceed any further.
It seems you are saying that the case was denied because it was not properly prepared and the attachments were missing. Since the burden falls on the applicant, the poor preparation of an application is not grounds to overturn a denial. That is why it is important to use an immigration attorney. The applicant should consult with an immigration lawyer to discuss other options, if any.
The structure of the investment and the investment amount may be insufficient to get you an E-2 visa. You would be well-advised to schedule a consultation with a US licensed immigration attorney to discuss your options for bringing your family to the United States. Many attorneys offer consultations via Skype for individuals who are located overseas. Good luck, sir!
When you are filing for a waiver of the Joint Filing requirement with respect to Form I-751 based on divorce, you have to include the final divorce decree. If you do not include the divorce decree, USCIS will send you a Request for Evidence and give you 87 days to provide the final decree. If you do not provide the final divorce decree within that time, you may be placed in removal proceedings. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney right away.
