Quite frankly, and in brief, pack your bags, you're leavin' on a jet plane. What did you expect, a red carpet and a silver engraved invitation? You should have consulted immigration counsel before you got yourself into this pickle. To hire immigration counsel at this point in time would most likely be a waste of time because you have violated a law that has no relief short of marriage to a US citizen, but if you are already in deportation proceedings, that will not helpy you at this point in...
Any number of subsequent dependants can be added. Your brother is the principle alien and all dependents qualify under him. No problem, just call it to the attention of the NVC when the time arises. You would be well advised to have an attorney assist you in the consular processing portion . . . it gets complex.
The consular portion of the Fiance Visa is the most difficult. I suggest you consult a lawyer.
The K-1 Fiancé/Fiancee Visa
Important K-1 Factors:
The K-1 Visa allows you to invite your fiancée to America
for a period of 90 days, during which time your fiancee must
either marry you or return to her home country.
There are no exceptions to this rule
It is simple, and I have written on this subject often. An illegal alien is someone who entered the USA illegally, without being inspected by an Immigration officer. An overstay is someone who entered the USA on a visa and went out of status by overstaying past the date their I-94 form required them to leave. The main difference is that if the Overstay marries a US citizen, he or she can adjust status in the USA at the local USCIS office. An illegal alien who marries a US citizen is required to...
So long as you are still married and living with the spouse through whom you qualified for Conditional Permanent Residence, based on an adjustment date of 03/31/2006, you can file your Application for Natualization (N-400) after about December 1, 2008, three months prior to the three-year anniversary of your adjustment to permanent residence.
Marriage does not affect your status as Family Based 4th Preference. You spouse and children will be eligible to accompany you in your permanent residence visa application at the US consulate abroad when your priority date comes current.
That's the $64,000 question. Beware of anyone who will answer it for you because it will most likely turn out to be a scam. You have a complex case and need to seek the assistance of an immigration lawyer in your local area. Phone consulations and internet advice are not sufficient to fully advise you on your particular matter because documents need to be reviewed and many questions asked and answered. Immigration matters are complex and require individual attention and analysis.
Normally, drunk driving is not a deportable offense. I'm not sure what you mean by his "bond" . . . Immigration Bond, or DUI Bond? If your partner is out on an immigration bond, then he is already in immigration proceedings and marriage to a US citizen will not help him. If it is only a DUI bond, talk to a qualified immigration lawyer and provide him with the facts you did not provide in your question and then he/she can answer your specific questions.
Processing times for Green Cards vary, depending on the facts of each individual case, and whether the case was properly prepared and documented. Always use a qualified immigration lawyer when dealing with the USCIS. The problem cases that take years are usually done by people trying to do it themselves and not understanding some of the simple principles required for a successful application. Remember, it is not enough to just complete the forms and submit them, there are other nuances in...
