First - you need to meet with an attorney that understands the immigration consequences to certain criminal charges. Tell your husband that if he is transferred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement that he should NOT sign ANYTHING. Many times while in custody detainees are asked to sign what ends up being their voluntary departure. I have seen cases where the detainee is told that signing is the best option, but the problem is that it is not ICE's job to give legal advice and they often do...
My colleagues are correct, divorce will complicate your case and you need the expertise of an immigration attorney in order to remove the conditions of your residency.
Remember the key is that your marriage was a valid one. The divorce could cause your case and relationship to be looked at more closely.
Best of Luck!
Are you a United States citizen? If so, you are allowed to request public assistance and it will not hurt your husband's case. Your husband will not be able to request any public assistance, when he files his case he needs a sponsor that will attest that your husband will not be a public charge and the sponsor will be responsible for any public assistance he requests. So if you were his sponsor, you may be required to find a co-sponsor that will share in this responsibility.
Best of Luck!...
It sounds you like definitely need to speak with an attorney to make sure your own legal status is protected while trying to straighten out the identity mix up. You have to address 1. Your green card renewal problem, and 2. The potential identity theft and/or clerical error.
Answering your specific question: The mail may be better. You could also write a letter directly addressing the US Consulate indicating your request for your friend to visit.
Obtaining a tourist visa can be difficult if your friend is unable to show he/she does not have the intent to immigrate to the US and also he/she must show sufficient ties to their country - among other things.
Do you mean obtain a permanent residency status once it hits two years? Do you have conditional residency now and what you want to do is remove the conditions? Without further information it is hard to give you a better answer. I highly suggest you contact an immigration attorney to review your case before you do anything.
I never suggest using a notary public but I understand your financial situation. You could also seek out an attorney willing to review your form for a smaller fee - this is not the time to sacrafice the quality of the case for financial reasons.
You can have co-sponsors but they should all understand their responsiblity regarding being a co-sponsor. I suggest contacting an immigration attorney for a consultation to review the specifics in your case and to answer all of your questions....
To answer your question more information is needed. Were you a minor when your brother petitioned your mother? When did you enter the United States?
Consult with an attorney to clarify your situation.
Best of Luck!
The EB5 visa is extremely complex and it is not just about money. You should not attempt this on your own. $500,000 could be a permissible amount of investment funds depending on the location of the business or if it is invested in an approved regional center, but that is just the first step in a long process and now is not the time to try and do this yourself. You do not just need an attorney, you need one that is skilled in the EB-5 process.
Best of Luck!
