My friend is on F1 visa, He wants to start a business partnering with a US Citizen. He would like to know all options on starting a business venture as well as sharing profits/losses and other implications.
If the F-1 wishes to do more than provide money (invest), there may be other options such as an E-1 or E-2 visa depending on what country he is from. He should probably consult with an immigration attorney with experience in investment visas to discuss his options.See question

Include a clear letter from your employer confirming that you have a permanent job. It should state the salary and when you started working there. It should be clear that your job is full time and not temporary. Also include a copy of your last 3 pay stubs. Because your 2013 and 2014 taxes It sounds like your challenge will be to show that the job is permanent. When you eventually go to your interview, bring additional evidence to show you are still employed with that company - a new employment letter and recent pay stubs would be ok.See question
How long can you wait for a pending green card after interview before you make a case inquiry or info pass
Technically, you can schedule an InfoPass anytime you want. The better question is when should you. It would be a waste of time to do so within a few days. If you wait 30 days, I think the officer at the window would be motivated to help you find out what is delaying things.See question
Hello. I applied for renewal of my expired Indian passport in 2012 at the NY Consulate. It Is 2025 now and every time I go there, I always get the "it's in processing" talk. I even filed for them to cancel my renewal and to return my original ...
Unfortunately, the Indian embassy in New York is notorious for being very difficult. This is not an issue of U.S. immigration law, so this AVVO site may not be the best venue to get your question asked. My clients have generally been successful when they have proven to the Indian embassy that they have lawful status or lawful status pending in the U.S. If you have already done that, I cannot offer further help.See question

Yes, you need an attorney. Assuming your marriage is legitimate, you have two options: appeal or refile the I-130 Petition. Either way, an experienced immigration attorney can help you develop sufficient evidence that your marriage is bona fide. Many of the good Ohio lawyers on this site could help you.See question
Does solicitation prostitution affect citizenship apply?
Yes. If you are convicted it does. There is a little known BIA case that minimizes the consequences. You should not be using AVVO for this. You need to speak directly to a good immigration attorney who is expert on the impact of criminal offenses on immigration benefit eligibility.See question

It is possible that your ULP has not yet started. To be sure, you may need to talk to a good immigration lawyer. You say you fell out of status April 2012. Did you ever receive a notice from the USCIS telling you specifically that you were out of status. If so, an immigration attorney should examine that document. What does your October 2014 denial say. Again, an immigration attorney should examine it.See question
