I am on a visiting visa but would like to change my status so i can work. Is H-1B a good option.i have a degree and masters
There are several different work-based visas available. An H-1B is a good one depending on the job and the employer, but there are a limited number of H-1B visas available each year. With a few exceptions for certain employers, no new H-1Bs are available until October 1, 2016 and the lottery for those visas will be held starting April 1, 2016.
There are other possible options that you can discuss with an attorney.
If persons visa was cancelled and has been arrested for some criminal charges, gets bond. U think if bond gets posted ice will depot him or they will wait for case to be finished?
ICE can deport someone who has been ordered deported even if there are pending criminal proceedings. Whether this can or will happen to the person who is the subject of this question is very speculative. This person should immediately consult with an experienced immigration law attorney to see what options he has for contesting his deportation and to try to minimize the adverse immigration consequences of his pending criminal case.
If he posts bond in the criminal case, he may be transferred to ICE custody, where he may remain for a long time depending on his circumstances.

how many years exactly to get green card in Michigan Dearborn USA
There are two things affecting the amount of time it takes, assuming you are otherwise eligible for a green card. The first is the government processing times, which are usually reasonable. The second is that there are waiting lists for green cards for certain family-based green card categories. These waits, depending on the category, can be anywhere from 1-2 years to as long as 15-20 years. Also, if you do not have lawful status in the U.S. and do not maintain lawful status here, you could be unable to get a green card, although it depends on your specific circumstances.
Rather than try to guess at which category you are in, you should contact me or another experienced immigration law attorney to see what your options are.
I am applying for J-1 waiver of 2 year HRR. My concerns 1. Will my J-1 status is gone when I file for the waiver? 2. I know if I get the waiver approval I can not extend my DS-2019 further, what if I get denied? (can ...
The attorney who is helping you with the J-1 waiver should be able to answer these questions for you. If you do not have an attorney, this is one reason why it is a good idea to have one. The answers to these questions seem straightforward and easily answerable, but giving you specific advice could create an attorney-client relationship and it could be dangerous to you because you are relying on advice given by someone who does not necessarily have all of the important details.See question
Does this temporary US passport allow me to enter and stay in Turkey? How about the visa? Where can I find help to fill out my I-131 form?
If you have questions about your entry into and stay in Turkey, you should contact an attorney in Turkey.
If you are from Turkey, travelling back there could jeopardize your asylee or lawful permanent resident status, so you should discuss this with a U.S. immigration attorney before you travel.
If you need help with completing this form, you should contact an experienced immigration law attorney, such as me or another AILA attorney. Do not rely on advice you receive on a public website, because not all situations are the same. If an attorney gives you advice here and you follow it and something goes wrong, what will you do next?See question

While many details are missing from your question, your brother could be facing serious consequences. If he illegally reentered the U.S. after being deported, he could be facing federal criminal charges and a lengthy jail sentence. On the immigration side, if someone illegally reenters the U.S. after being deported, the prior deportation order can be reinstated and he can be deported without a hearing unless he has a reasonable fear of persecution.
You need to have an experienced immigration law attorney review his complete immigration and criminal history while there may still be time to do something to help him.See question

My I-140 was approved in the month of August 2015. But Employer refused to share the approval notice no or copy. I want this for my wife's EAD application. But they are not giving me any answer nor sharing anything with me. My question is:. ...
If an attorney filed the I-140 petition, that attorney represents you and the employer. If the attorney will not provide you with a copy, then contact the state bar association's disciplinary committee. You have a right to the I-140 approval notice because it creates rights and responsibilities for you.
To answer your question, in my experience, the USCIS does not notify any private parties when someone requests their own FOIA file, but that doesn't mean they won't ever do so. It can take 2-4 months to receive a FOIA file.
