    In order for you to file an immigrant petition for your boyfriend you must indeed marry him and submit not only paperwork, but evidence to the Citizenship and Immigration Service that your marriage is a "bona fide" marriage.

Whether your family finds out about your marriage or not is a personal determination. Certainly, they will inquire once you live together or once you...

    Both parents have a duty to support their children. Child support is based on the custody/visitation agreement or order of the court and the income and expenses of the parents. This is determined by statutory guidelines established by the State of California. I encourage you to consult with an attorney or a non-profit organizatiion to have an idea if your new visitation schedule will affect the amount of guideline child support you have been ordered to pay. Your request for child support...

    Your question does not provide enough facts to determine your eligibility for immigration benefits. You state that you were granted relief under the Convention Against Torture, which means that the Department of Homeland Security has allowed you to remain in the United States. This however does not necessarily make you eligible for other relief. I encourage you to consult with an immigration attorney in your area and discuss all the facts of your case and the grant of your current status.

    Attorney fees vary. It is best for you to contact attorneys in your area. A fee an attorney quotes you is based not only on the facts of your case, but the complexity of the matter and your particular situation. The type of visa you wish to obtain s only the beginning to the inquiry of how the attorney will handle your case.
