    Mr. X wants to emigrate to US to join his daughter. His sister (Mrs. A) is a citizen. His daughter (Mrs. B) has recently received her green card. It would be faster for Mr. X to go to US if his child applies for him (~7 years) instead of his siste...

    The Service Center may or may not forward your AOS to a district office for an interview. If that is the case, your AOS may take longer than published process time. You can do online inquiry if your case is beyond processing time posted on USCIS website.

    Sufen’s Answer

    Not clear whether your perm under yoru current employer is pending over one year counting from your ending date of max of H-1B six year or not. If that perm is pending over one year, you are eligible to file your H-1B for another year, even with a different employer. If a new employer agrees to file another perm and if that perm is certified and I-140 is also approved, you can extend your H-1B for another three years assuming your priority date is not current at the time.

    You mentioned that you already sent your state ID plus a letter explaining that letter was not written by you. So, you have done what you are supposed to do. You can also physically visit USCIS office where your huband's case is pending to make it clear that you did not write that letter.
    By the way, how did you find out that letter claimed sent to USCIS faking you? Did you have a copy of it? You may want to attach a copy of that letter if you do have a copy of it.

    Since for each marriage you entered, you have to prove you did not enter the marriage just for immigration purpose, you are going to carry an additional burden to prove your future marriage, plus your current marriages, were ( is going to be) entered in good faith. So, the answer is yes, you can remarry again, but you really need to have all the documents prepared from previous marriage before your divorce.

  • Can I stay and work in US if get married to green card holder (Permanent Resident)?

    I am currently in US on visitor visa (B1/B2). I have some relatives here and I want to get married with my cousin who is a green card holder. I have the following questions. 1) If I get married with green card holder while staying in US, ...

    Sufen’s Answer

    August 01 will be open for all green card holders' spouse on visa bulletin. This means if you are married with your cousin, you can file for green card as early as August 01 and you do not need to leave the country. The processing time may take about 5 months.
    I highly recommend you hire an immigration attorney to handle your case because you mentioned that you are marrying your cousin. In some states, depending whether you are first or seond cousins, cousin marriages are not considered valid marriages.

  • My H1 is expiring in next week, and i have applied Change of Status to H4 in premium and not recieved USCIS case number yet!

    My H1 is expiring in next week, and i have applied Change of Status to H4 in premium todays back but not recieved USCIS case number yet! But I have FedEx Proof that USCIS received my documents, Can I stay based on this?

    Sufen’s Answer

    There is no premium processing for change status from H-1B to H-4 unless you do it concurrently with your spouse who also changes status to H-1B. Maybe you mailed to the wrong filing address? It takes 3 to 4 weeks to get the package back. Please go to your bank to see if USCIS cashed the filing fee $290. If not, you should file another package ASAP without waiting for the returned package.
