    Your question indicates that you intend to use these documents to apply for Deferred Action (DACA). For purposes of a DACA application, a birth certificate and/or a diploma issued by an official entity (government, university, etc.) is sufficient to submit as is, without any additional notarization. If the document is not in English, then you should submit an English translation along with it and the translation should be notarized by the person that preprares it. If you are submitting any...

    Just as all of the other attorneys have stated, you should ensure that your boyfriend receives all medical treatment needed first and foremost. You should also consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to make sure that your boyfriend preserves the rights to any claims he may be able to make. A personal injury attorney can further advice your and your boyfriend of the strengths and weaknesses of your boyfriends case and can guide you in what steps must be taken. I also...

    If the mother of your child refuses to give the child to you at the specified visitation time, I would urge you to call the police (and have a copy of the Court Order in your hand when you do so). If the police are not able to assist you, then you should consult with an experienced family law attorney who can help you determine the best way to resolve this problem before filing any emergency motions and bogging the Judge down with paperwork and motions.

    You may be eligible for asylum or for withholding of removal. These types of cases are very specific and vary from one case to the next depending on the particular details of your unique case. I encourage you to consult with an experienced immigration attorney who has specifically handled asylum and withholding of removal cases for other clients. Also, I encourage you to take action and consult with the attorney as soon as possible as time may be of the essence.

    I urge you to obtain a new driver's license in the state you currently live in simply because that is the law in most states to do so within a specified period of time upon moving to that state. I think a new license from your current state will be useful for your interview as well. However, I also encourage you to take additional evidence with you to the interview such as your utility bills and/or tax records to help prove your residency of 90 days or more. If you need assistance, contact an...

    If your I-730 is approved, at the time it is approved, your H-1B will be cancelled out. However if your I-730 is approved you may continue to work for your employer if you wish to do so, but you just won't be working for the employer as an H1B employee any longer. However, if the I-730 is approved, you could work anywhere you wish so you could also switch to a new job if you wanted to do so. If you have further questions, contact an experienced immigration attorney to make sure you are taking...

    Contact a consumer rights attorney to assist you in dealing with the furniture company. The attorney will be able to help you contact the furniture company and demand a response. Make sure you do as soon as possible to ensure that time doesn't pass by preventing you from exercising all of your rights under the law and under any agreement you may have signed with the furniture store. Good luck!

    Contact your insurance company and inquire whether they will provide an attorney for this sort of issue. It doesn't cost anything to ask what services are available through your insurance company. If you find that they do not provide legal services to assist you in this case, then you could contact the local bar association in your state and ask for recommendations or referrals to attorneys that practice in this area of law. I hope this helps! I am unable to provide you any specific legal...

    Traveling domestically (within the US) is typically no problem so long as you have some form of valid identification. Of course, keep in mind that no one can guarantee you 100% that you won't face any problems. If I were in your shoes, I would carry with me the passport, identification, and a copy of the notice to appear, just in case you need to explain your situation to an officer.
