    I agree with my colleague. You can move to another state and then notify ICE. Just please make sure you're not falsifying your address to obtain a drivers license.

    I agree with my colleagues, an I-130 visa for your brother could take 14 years. You should speak with an immigration attorney so that you can learn what other options your brother may have.

  • Hello, I'm trying to fill the N-400 document and it is asking me for my Family name(Last name)?

    Am I supposed to provide just my dad's last name or both my dad's and mother's? Thank you in advance

    Joshoa’s Answer

    I agree with my colleague. But if you have any question about whether your are completing the application correctly, I would suggest consulting an immigration attorney. It can be a terrible thing to waste time and money by filling out an application incorrectly.

    Hello,

    I understand how difficult all of this must be for you and your entire family.

    Joshoa’s Answer

    I agree with my colleagues. Your family members may not gain citizenship by becoming the legal guardian of your child, however, there may be other ways for your family members to stay here legally. You should speak directly with an immigration attorney so that you can get some definitive answers to help with your family planning.
