    friend needs sponsorships, but im concerned with financial implication. his lawyer staes with an affidavit signedd by immigrant that he will not hold me liable financialy will be hold up in court. im concerned with DUI, Medical bills, taxes ...et...

    Eric’s Answer

    I agree with the other attorney's answers. The agreement for support is between you and the government. This cannot be waived by the immigrant. Be very careful about signing an agreement to provide financial support because you will be held responsible. I would not do this unless you have a close relationship with the immigrant and trust them implicitly.

    This is exactly the type of situation that immigration lawyers deal with often. But, if you came to see me, we would talk for about an hour collecting the details of your situation and discussing the issues related to your various questions. It is impossible to give you a helpful response in this forum except to strongly recommend that you meet with an immigration lawyer immediately. Definitely do this before you do anything further in the criminal case since the outcome could effect your immigration status.

  • Can a USC petition his fiancee whom he just met less than two years ago?

    Eric’s Answer

    If your friends girlfriend is a Cuban, she can legally gain entry and be put on a path for a green card even without a fiance visa. She needs to present herself at the border, perhaps through Mexico. Your friend should discuss this with an immigration attorney before doing anything further.

    I would rely on advice from an attorney in Maryland. But, I tend to think that neither of you can hold the other liable because you were both at fault for the accident. If you have homeowners or renters insurance, you may want to notify them of the potential liability claim.

    Eric’s Answer

    Unless another attorney disagrees with me, I do not think that refusal to issue a B2 visa prevents you from traveling under the Visa Waiver Program.

    It is unlikely that the statute of limitations has expired. But, you should immediately, and without delay, see a PI lawyer in your State to discuss this.

    Good luck!
