This is a slippery slope! If you are coming with the intention to apply for adjustment of status under the CAA you will have to lie to the immigration officer when you request admission. If that lie is subsequently proven, you could be denied ANY immigration benefits. On the other hand if you tell the officer that you intend to apply for adjustment of status under the CAA, you will most probably be denied admission. You need the guidance of an Immigration attorney before you do anything that could have long lasting consequences.See question
We have been together for 2 years.
There is no law against having a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship, however if you have done more than hold hands and kiss in the cheek, then she could be committing a serious crime, whether your parents approve or not. I could tell you about Romeo and Juliet statutes but that would be putting the cart before the horse.See question

My husband was denied a custom's seal at the airport for a past drug conviction in 1993. He served time for his crime and has not had any other issues with the law. Is there a chance he would be able to win an appeal? Or are they set on their rule...
As stated before, this is not a criminal law question, unless you want to do some kind of post-conviction relief.See question
I've done some research & I've read that I could present my case to a judge & if the judge sees it fit he'd give me a pass to exponge my record is this true ? If so, how does one go about doing so ? & how long would it take ?
It's not that simple. There are certain requirements that will have to be met, you will have to obtain a Certificate of Eligibility from the FDLE, file an affidavit, and then the Judge may grant it if there is no objection from the prosecutor, the police or anyone else that may be involved. Contact an attorney and don't risk getting denied.See question
When a person is subject to a felony arrest in Florida but formal charges are not filed, the case is declined and the arrest record is expunged, does this mean that the person is always presumed innocent until proven guilty in the eyes of the law?
That's the case for 97% of the people, however, for Immigration purposes, under certain circumstances, your presumption of innocence means nothing and they can go behind the record to look at the arrest affidavit and then make an independent determination. I hope that's not why you're asking.See question
el caso fue en florida en el 2010. persona residente con record criminal puede salir del pais? como se borra el record criminal para trabajar y hacerme ciudadano?
Sellar o borrar su caso no va a tener efecto para Inmigracion. Usted va a tener que presentar copias certificadas del reporte de arresto, el documento acusatorio, y la disposicion final del caso con su aplicacion de ciudadania. Ahora, dependiendo de los cargos y del tiempo que ha pasado ( usted dice en el 2010) quizas pueda hacerse ciudadano a pesar del record. En cuanto a si puede salir del pais, la respuesta es no si quiere regresar. Salir casi nunca es un problema, el problema es al regresar que lo ponen en proceso de remocion. Contacte un abogado de Inmigracion para que le oriente.See question
Can I Now expunge my record and can I bear arms?? thanks
From the case scenario that you present, you would not have any limitations on your ability to bear arms. That said, if there was a restraining order, as typically there are in D.V. cases, then it could affect your ability to obtain a concealed weapons permit. Check with your attorney.See question
I am a Mexican national awaiting for trial on a criminal case at state level here in the U.S. and i have a court restriction for travel outside the state , i have a B1/B2 VISA ( turism and business ) , i'd been doing 4 extensions over my original ...
It is a little bit unusual for a state case to linger more than 30 months, unless it's a high profile or serious case. Your criminal defense attorney could have filed a demand for speedy trial. That said, USCIS has no duty to extend your stay and unfortunately you may be in a no-win situation. if you get acquitted in your criminal case, you may still be removed from the U.S. as an overstay, if you get convicted, well, all bets are off then. Good luck.See question
The reason I ask is the name change form states "have rights been restored"? I am not sure what this means. I was released from probation and have finished my probation sentence in Texas. Does this mean my rights have been restored? Also, I a...
As long as you have a valid legal reason for changing your name, courts in Florida will do it. However, if you have a conviction anywhere in the U.S. your civil rights will need to be restored. If you received only probation, it is likely that adjudication was withheld, which means you were not convicted and did not lose your civil rights. In any case, I suggest you contact a competent attorney to give you more specific advice.See question
