    Sean’s Answer

    These documents will hep but the adjudicator may require more. You need to hire an immigration lawyer to review the entire application if you truly care about this.

  • IMMIGRATION FORMS

    I am an illegal alien here but I have my B1/ and B2 visa with me here. No criminal offense commited as far as I am concerned. I am presently residing here in Los Angeles, California with my husband. I got 2 unmarried child in our country ages 10 a...

    Sean’s Answer

    I think it unwise to seek "quick and free" "legal advice" on a website if you value your immigration status. This site is not meant to ask "which forms to fill-out" when that question inevitably involves the professional legal judgment of an attorney. You case involves more than choosing forms and filling them out. If you dont believe that, go ahead and research how many people are denied and deported for just "filling out" forms. I would at a minimum, consult in private with an immigration lawyer before doing anything.

  • Where i should apply a immagration visa for my wife?

    im us citezen im gonna get married with my fiance this month in her home country,i can`t get k1 visa for her because she overstay 90 day in us whil she was b1b2 visa,where i can apply fo immigration visa insid or outsid the us

    Sean’s Answer

    You should go to the USCIS website and look up the filing location for where you live on the I-130 instructions. However, I would seek the advice of a good immigration attorney first and also look into how long her overstay was or for any other immigration violations you might not know about.

  • Immigrations Question

    If someone was punished by immigration for 10 yrs but 4 yrs they came back illegally and received a driver licenses. Now that his son is 21 he want to submit immigration documents to be able to get his status fixed. Will he be pushed for this ob...

    Sean’s Answer

    This "someone" needs to consult with a licensed immigration attorney before deciding to file anything at all. I agree with my collegue that this person now faces the "permanent bar" and would have had to have waited 10 years outside the U.S. AND seek permission to apply to return... Applying and being found in the U.S. after deportation for certain crimes is itself a felony with prison terms of up to 20 years! So...this is serious and should be looked at by a good immigration lawer.

  • Immigration Interview?

    I am currently in Mexico waiting for my Green card renewal appointment in March. I was sent here 2 years ago and was married with a child.. My wife and i have decided not to be married anymore. When i go to my interview in March and let them know ...

    Sean’s Answer

    It is unclear by your question, exactly what your situation is. If you have been outside the U.S. over a year and did not apply for a re-entry permit, set up your life and home in Mexico for even less than a year-you may have abandoned your residency. If so, you appear to be applying for a new immigrant visa (unclear). If your "nenewal appointment" is an application based on your marriage which is no longer viable or existant, you cannot seek a visa based on that marriage. I would consult with an immigration attorney right away. We are available if you wish to contact us and may be able to help. Law Offices of Sean Lewis 615.646.6002.

  • Trying to find a experienced immigration lawyer in the rochester ny area need one asap

    has a cout date with county court in feb but boarder patrol has detained my friend. they are threatening to deport him telling him he is illegal in the country he has a wife should i advise is wife to come into town and get the lawyer or would it ...

    Sean’s Answer

    You may hire the lawyer on your friend's behalf, but he will be the client of the lawyer if he wants to be represented. I would not waste any time, in case this is a "expedited removal" case at the border. I would begin by going to the American Immigration Lawyers website and use the online referral service at www.aila.org. Alternatively, the National Immigration Forum has a list of lawyers who do this type of work. Good luck!

  • How can I get my fiance out if he has a immagration hold?

    Sean’s Answer

    You may need to postpone the wedding to allow the criminal (traffic) cases to resolve. THEN he will go into ICE cusotdy (if they are interested in him). Only after ICE has him will they process him and decide whether or not to get a bond. If "no bond" the judge at Oakdale Louisinana may bond him after a hearing. I would think it best to hire an immigration attorney. We have an office in Memphis and practice in Oakdale, LA...

    Sean’s Answer

    My office is based in Nashville and I work with ICE and do removal defense. I suggest you contact us about this. I highly doubt ICE cares about this, as they are busy removing people with detainer warrants (ICE holds). You might qualify for Cancellation of removal even if you were placed into proceedings depending upon how long you have been a resident and living in the US as well as other issues surrounding the bona fides of this marriage...
