    I agree with my colleagues. It appears that the first immigration officer was a bit overzealous. But you must keep in mind that there are many criminal offenses that CAN and DO lead to deportations. That is one of the reasons that naturalization might be a good idea, for those who qualify. I suggest you consult with an immigration attorney about your situation to prepare for a more secure future.

    There is no age limit for applying for asylum. Asylum law is very complex. I suggest that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney about your case. Best of luck.

    It's not exactly clear what you are asking. If your daughter does not want to continue in the marriage, then she can seek a divorce. If your daughter filed an I-130 petition for her husband, she could withdraw the petition. If your daughter believes that she is in danger, then she should call police and seek protection. I wish you all the best.

Please consult with an immigration attorney immediately.

    He should consult with an immigration attorney as soon as possible. Depending on exactly what the charges are, and depending on the outcome of the case in criminal court, it could result in denial of his naturalization application. More importantly, the outcome in criminal court could subject your brother to possible deportation proceedings. The details of the criminal charges are important, and so your brother needs to consider the immigration consequences of what happens in criminal court...

    If the person is in Mexico now, and if the waiver was denied, then it appears that he does not have permission to enter the United States at this time. If he enters the United States illegally, then he will NOT be eligible to file the new provisional waiver than begins on March 4, 2013. In fact, depending on his prior immigration history, if he enters illegally at this time, he could face many more serious problems, including possible criminal charges, and ineligibility for future...

    The date on your green card is the date you became a Conditional Permanent Resident. This is completely different from your priority date. For purposes of permanent resident status, the date on the green card is the one that matters.
