    i agree with my colleagues. Hire a lawyer you trust to walk you through the process - it is incredibly complicated and risky to navigate it on your own. If there was ever a petition filed for him by anyone before April 30, 2001, he may be eligible to "adjust" his status here in the US. Otherwise, it is likely that he will need to "consular process" his green card application. If so, start with the I-130 (the petition) and then use the new provisional hardship waiver on form I-601A so he can...

    The previous answers are all correct. Often attorneys will want you to commit to an initial consultation first to make sure that your brother is "admissible" to the United States and to make sure you are qualified to petition for him. At the consultation, an attorney can give you a better idea of what the complications are in your case (if any), and what the fee will be. Good luck.

    Hello. Filing an I-751 based on abuse is a scary thing to do on your own and I strongly recommend that you proceed with an attorney who you trust. If USCIS decides that your marriage was not entered into in good faith, or that your abuse does not satisfy the requirement of "battered or subjected to extreme cruelty," then USCIS can put you into removal proceedings and try to deport you and take away your green card. Please find a good immigration attorney and proceed with caution. Good...

    I agree with the above posts. If you are still in removal proceedings, you are likely not accruing unlawful presence. However, if you lost your asylum case and haven't appealed (or if you failed to depart after being granted voluntary departure), you might be. Talk with your immigration attorney if you have any questions about this.

    I agree with my colleague, you will need to consular process your green card since you were never lawfully admitted. However, once you leave the country you will likely trigger the 10 year bar since you have probably accrued more than 1 year of unlawful presence in the United States. To avoid this bar and getting stuck in your home country you will need to file an I-601 waiver demonstrating that your husband and/or your children will suffer extremely unusual and exceptional hardship. This is a...

    I agree with my colleagues. Hire a competent immigration attorney who you trust. The answer will depend on how strong your asylum case and cancellation case is. We cannot advise on that in this public forum. Hire a good lawyer, and win your case in court if possible. Good luck, Otis C. Landerholm, Esq. www.LanderholmLawOffice.com
