approval period ended last May. I filed my LPR petition already. Now the kid's father says they can travel to the US. Should I request an extension of status for them and then have them travel to the US or should I wait until I get my LPR and peti...
Does the community agency have an attorney, or a BIA-accredited representative? If they do, and if you have faith in them, then you should communicate with them about the case. If not, then you should consult with an experienced immigration attorney about the situation. Best wishes.See question
hello, I am an LPR and my husband is a Singaporean who can legally enter United States through Visa Waiver Program. His priority date will be current in 3 months and he can stay here for 90 days. he is a programmer and a company is alread...
A much safer approach is for your husband to apply for an immigrant visa and to go to an interview at the US Consulate for the immigrant visa. Otherwise, he is risking some significant problems and complications if he enters on Visa Waiver and then his 90 days expires. Best wishes.See question
The mother is US citizen from having a green card. The child was born in Loas. The father is German. How can she claim the US citizen to her child?
The answer to your question depends on where the child and the parents are at this time, the age of the child, and also the immigration and residence history of the U.S. Citizen mother BEFORE the birth of the child. It would be best to consult directly with an immigration attorney experienced in issues of acquisition of citizenship. Best wishes.See question
What can they do to bring the 19 year old child here?
The U.S. Citizen may file a petition for the 13-year-old child, because that step-child is considered an immediate relative for immigration purposes. The U.S. Citizen may not file a petition for the 19-year-old child, however. Once the biological parent becomes a permanent resident, he or she may petition for the older child.See question
How many days is the interview? How soon after interview does applicant get a visa to come to the U.S.?
It is really not possible to predict how long you will need to wait before getting an interview appointment. The timing depends on the schedule of the consulate. The interview itself takes place during one day. If the case is approved, usually the applicant receives the passport with the visa and a packet of documents in a courier package (often DHL) approximately 3 to 10 days after approval.See question
I am a US citizen, my son was born abroad, and is now in the USA with an ESTA. I am looking through the things we'll need to get his green card, and came across this medical examination form. Do minors need to file that along with I-485 and I-130?
If you are a US Citizen, and your son was born abroad, did you investigate whether your son is a US Citizen by birth? If he is, then you can apply for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA) and a U.S. Passport for your son. Otherwise, he will need a medical exam for the green card process.See question
I moved to the US in June 2013 and I'm currently on a L2 Visa as a child of the L1 visa holder. My step dad is the L1 visa holder and he's applying for our green cards through his work, but there's no progress. My mom's passport expired Jan 2015 b...
You won't be able to move forward with the green card process as an L2 dependent on your own. If you have some other way to apply for permanent resident status, such as if you are married to a US Citizen, for example, or some other way, then you might be able to pursue that. Best wishes.See question
My DACA expired on the 17th of July, I thought it expired in August, I was clearly mistaken. Can I still reapply or will they refuse to give me a work permit and license which I need.
You should file as soon as you can to renew. As my colleagues have stated, you should stop working until you receive the new employment authorization card.See question

You could submit the word "present" as the end date for your current address. You really should work with an immigration attorney on your asylum application. Asylum is very complex.See question
