  • What chances do you think I (and my wife) will have to be successfully granted citizenship?

    I entered the US on a tourist visa and am thinking of marrying a US citizen for citizenship (as an immigration lawyer stated this was the only way I could stay permanently after overstaying on my tourist visa). On my tourist visa application, I di...

    Lol. You are either a ICE investigator trying to entrap unethical attorneys or a person so completely lacking in common sense that I would urge you to stay wherever you are.

  • Can I renew my state drivers license as I am waiting for my green card renewal?

    I am a legal resident for 10 years now, and my green card expired a few days ago. I didn't noticed that my drivers license also expired on the same day. I am applying for green card renewal but that process will take 3 to 6 months. I need a va...

    Peter’s Answer

    Nevada dmv will likely decline to extend your drivers license because you don't have proof of status. You could try to get a driving privilege permit which is available to undocumented residents of Nevada. But it's not the same as a drivers license.

  • I have a visa in my passport as does my husband L1B and L2. we got our i129s forms back with no stamp.

    do we need an endorsed i129s form at poe? or can we present the i797

    Peter’s Answer

    I'm unclear as to what you mean "you got your I-129forms back without a stamp." USCIS does not give stamps. The only adjudicate petitions. If you are seeking entry and you visa stamps have expired you need to apply at the consulate, not the USCIS. But maybe I'm not understanding your question.

    Peter’s Answer

    Because you have over stayed your authorized stay, you are not eligible to change status to any of the non immigrant visas mentioned and because of the overstay the US consulates in Mexico would be unlikely to issue the visa either. You might want to talk to an experienced lawyer about asylum based relief.

    I have been working for a company for 1 month and yesterday June 4, 2015 was my payday. I have not been paid yet and my employer has not been in contact with me. I have called and text and the only response I've received "I'm sorry my phone was in...

    Peter’s Answer

    Not really an immigration question, but here goes: on Monday, if he hasn't paid you, have a calm talk with your boss. Find out if there is a reason why you didn't get paid. If you are not satisfied contact the State of Nevada office if the labor commission. But you should start looking for a new job. Good luck.

    Peter’s Answer

    You would likely not be subject to the 10 year bar. But you should have somebody review your criminal record for in admissibility issues.

    It shouldn't based on the facts you present here. But you probably should get a consult with an immigration attorney just to go over everything.
