How soon will my wife be able to travel with me outside the U.S after we are married and I fill out her I-360? I am a U.S citizen. We are planning on the marriage next month and she is presently staying in the country on a tourist visa that expire...
It sounds as though you have the wrong form in hand and don't quite understand what needs to be done. There is much more to a successful immigration case then just completing forms. Filing the wrong documents with USCIS can have devastating consequences. You and your wife should consult with an experienced immigration attorney before taking any action. It will be well worth the time and expense.See question
A friend of mine has told me today that if a US citizen financially depends on him, he cannot be deported, or denied a citizenship application. Is that correct? Thanks

My father is a US citizen. I am now 34 years old. I have not left the US since 1998. I came with a visa and was inspected. My mother applied for asylum when i was a minor and we were denied. I was not aware of any removal proceedings, if any. My m...
Putting the issue of removal proceedings aside, under the facts you present you do not require eligibility under 245(i) to adjust your status. This is because the law provides that an alien maintaining lawful TPS status is considered to be in and maintaining lawful status for purposes of adjustment of status. Thus, since you entered the country lawfully and assuming your priority date is current, you appear to be eligible for adjustment of status to that of a lawful permanent resident. The fact that you have fallen out of status would not be determinative and eligibility under section 245(i) is not required.
Since your case obviously has a long history, you should consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review your case in detail and advise you how best to proceed.See question

Generally speaking, if your OPT expired in 2013 it does not appear that you are eligible for DACA. Likewise, unlawful presence is only one issue which could prevent your return. Just because you haven't accrued any unlawful presence doesn't mean that you can't be found inadmissible due to immigrant intent or other grounds. You should consult with an experienced immigration attorney who an evaluate your case and advise you how best to proceed.See question

I need to hire a candidate who is on H1 visa .I will need to do his H1 transfer in premium processing. what are the steps do I need to follow and how do I go about it
There is really no such thing as an "H-1B Transfer." The new employer must follow all the required steps as if the alien never held H-1B status (prevailing wage determination, LCA, H-1B visa petition). The only exception is that the alien is generally not subject to the H-1B visa cap.
How to handle this matter will depend upon a number of factors including the alien's employment and educational backgrounds, the job being offered and your company. You will best be served by consulting with an experienced immigration attorney who can review the facts of the case with you and recommend an appropriate course of action.See question

Hi, We are a small staffing agency for seasonal labor in the hospitality business. We need to get H-2B visa's and extensions. Are there any attorneys in the South Florida area for this? Thank you.
The H-2B visa process is very complicated. The Departments of Labor and Homeland Security recently promullgated new regulations which make employers responsible for all costs associated with an alien employee obtaining an H-2B visa, including legal fees and travel costs. There are also lots of timing (and other) issues which should to be considered. Look for an immigration attorney who has extensive experience dealing with H-2B visa matters.

It is unclear what you mean by "rejection." Was your H-1B petition subject to the quota and was not selected, i.e. rejected? Or are you saying that the petition was denied? In either situation, the employer is under no obligation to take any action on the petition unless contractually obligated. You should consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review your situation with you and advise you how best to proceed.See question
