  • Filed I-130 for my brother and his family, case was sent to NVC in 2009, his oldest son turned 21, what happens now?

    I filed I-130 in 2002 , it was approved in 2009, his oldest son turned 21 and he has a younger child , he's 9 yrs old now that was not on the application.

    Jalal’s Answer

    I agree with my colleagues, it is always worth checking whether the "adjusted" age of a derivative is actually over 21. The Child Status Protection Act often does what it is intended to. You should make an appointment with an immigration lawyer to discuss bringing your brother and his family to the US. Even though the older son has "aged out", there may be other ways for him to come to the US.

    Why are there arrears? If there is a legitimate reason, such as unemployment, you (the "obligor") can still file for a reduction in them. At the minimum, a motion should be filed to have any interest penalties set aside, which can increase drastically (double or triple the amount owed).

  • Moral turpitude

    I will soon be filing for cancellation of removal and I wanted to know if letting a house foreclose is considered a crime of moral turpitude. My wife just lost her job and we will not be able to afford the mortgage anymore. We will make one final ...

    Jalal’s Answer

    Letting a house foreclose is not a crime involving moral turpitude because no one is getting arrested for it. It's not illegal. Now, if there were some other illegal activity involved that causes one to be arrested, then you would have some sort of crime. I hope that helps!

  • How long can an inmate be detained for deportation per the writ of habeas corpus law

    see above

    Jalal’s Answer

    This depends on the inmate's criminal history. Under immigration law, an inmate will be under "mandatory detention" and cannot be released if the government establishes that he/she has committed at least two (2) crimes involving moral turpitude. These crimes usually involve some kind of violent or "aggressive" behavior.
