I have filed a Form 1-130, a Petition for Alien Relative to US Citizenship and Immigration Services, on behalf of my new husband. My petition has been denied because I am unable to produce a divorce document from my husband of 50 years ag...
Since bigamous marriages are illegal in the US, USCIS wants to see your divorce certificate to ensure that you were legally able to marry your new husband. A death certificate, showing that your previous husband passed away before you married your current husband would also demonstrate that you were legally able to marry at that time. Therefore, if you send in the death certificate for the previous husband, showing he passed away prior to the date you married your current husband, USCIS should be satisfied that the current marriage is valid.See question

It appears to me that your last entry was too late to qualify you for DACA. There may be other options, but it's impossible to tell without having the benefit of comprehensively reviewing your immigration history. I understand that you have concerns about working with immigration attorneys yet again, due to your past experience. Are you sure the individuals you were working with were attorneys at all? They may have been unlicensed individuals posing as lawyers or as individuals qualified to give legal advice. This is, unfortunately, extremely prevalent, especially in the Miami area. If you are interested in working with an attorney, you can search for one on Avvo, read their reviews and check to see if they have a disciplinary history. You can also call the Bar of the state where they are licensed to see if there is a history of violations or discipline. Make an educated decision and hire a good lawyer.See question
My wife never married before , she has a son 16 years old. We married 1.5 years earlier. She applied for permanent resident .I485 & I130 application filled 2 months ago. Now we are in process doing her son application. I am US citizen.
The custody document is not required for immigration purposes, however, as a practical matter, it may be worth seeking the advice of a family attorney in your wife's country of origin to determine whether she can, under the laws of that country, take her son to the US or if the father's permission is required. What you don't want is committing kidnapping in her own country by taking the child to the US, as that could affect her immigration status in the US at a future date.See question

You can certainly come on a B1/B2 for the purpose of meeting with immigration and corporate lawyers, tax advisors and business plan writers in connection with your planned application for an E-2 or L-1 visa. I would advise that your first step should be to meet with an immigration attorney to determine which of those two visas you might be eligible for and what the practical advantages and disadvantages of each path might be. You can do so either in person, if you enter on a B1/B2, or you may wish to contact an attorney now and try to schedule a consultation from your home country. Many of us offer telephone or Skype consultations for individuals presently outside the US. Once you know which immigration path you are going to utilize, your trip to the US to explore business options will be significantly more productive.See question

I applied overtime lawsuit against my employer in federal court (Florida). For three years he didn't pay me overtime. can i ask to labor department for U visa certification?
Yes, you could ask for the DOL to certify your I-918, Supplement B. However, there is much more to getting a U-Vis than just getting the certification. You may wish to reach out to a local legal aid organization. They sometimes handle these cases for free.See question
Dear lawyers Can i travel out states after 6 weeks of fingerprints? I didn't get a welcome notice from the uscis yet and im living with a friend who can send the gc to me to get back after 8 weeks
As an applicant for a green card, you are subject to being charged with the abandonment of your application if you leave while your application is pending without first obtaining Advanced Parole. If your case is abandoned, you lose your application and your filing fee. You would need to start all over again if you wanted to get resident status. You should also be aware that most cases are scheduled for interview, so you should not count on the need for your presence in the US to end at the point you have done your fingerprints. Finally, even after you are granted a green card, if you remain outside the US for extended periods of time, you risk losing your status if you do not take certain steps first. You could really benefit from a private consultation with an immigration attorney prior to departing from the US.See question
