    I agree with my colleagues. Use only enough sponsors as you need to adequately meet the 125% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines as shown on form I-864P. (You can google that form number and it'll come right up). Have a lawyer help you -and your sponsors- if you have any questions or concerns. Good luck, Otis C.

    I agree with my colleague, more information is needed to fully answer your question. If you were granted a conditional green card you may still be able to lift the conditions on your own, if you can demonstrate you entered into the marriage in good faith and/or you were abused, or if removal would cause extreme hardship. You should consult with an immigration lawyer in order to determine whether you qualify for any of these waivers. Otis C. Landerholm, Esq. www.landerholmlawoffice.com

    I agree with my colleagues. Your fiancé's accrual of unlawful presence makes this case very complicated. Waivers are discretionary and depend on a variety of factors. In order to assure your fiancé is eligible for a waiver you should contact an immigration attorney before filing out any forms and submitting them to USCIS. Otis C.

    I agree with my colleagues with regards to the bond. I would like to add that you should definitely consult an immigration lawyer if your uncle has already been placed in immigration proceedings and facing removability. Moreover, your uncle may be returned to ICE custody once his sentence is complete if ICE determines that he is a danger to the community. Otis C. Landerholm, Esq. www.landerholmlawoffice.com

    I agree with the previous posts, and I caution you that prosecutorial discretion really doesn't mean that much for two reasons... First, it is Extremely difficult to actually get - especially without the help of an attorney (I know many compelling cases prepared by excellent attorneys that have been summarily denied!), and Second, it is less good of an immigration remedy than an asylum case, or then a "cancellation of removal" case, or a "U-visa" or other forms of possible relief. So, in my...

  8. Immigration consequences of ACLU membership?

    When you go into your naturalization interview, tell the officer that you're a member of the ACLU. Often, the officer will allow you to minor changes while in your interview. If you have an attorney helping you with it, tell your attorney and he or she can make sure it gets corrected as well. As far as being a member of the ACLU goes, I would recommend to your friends that all immigrants join the ACLU, it is a fantastic organization for defending the immigrants' rights!

    You are not eligible to file an I-360 as an "Amerasian" unless you were born in Korea, Laos, Vietnam, Kampuchea, or Thailand after December 31, 1950, and before October 22 1982, and were fathered by a US citizen. See USCIS instructions to form I-360. Speak to a qualified immigration attorney to find out your other options if you want to apply for permanent residence. Are you currently in the US? Do you have family here? If so, they may be able to file a petition for you (on form I-130)...

    I agree with my colleagues. Find an immigration attorney who can look into the matter before you accept any plea in your criminal case! (Or find a criminal defense attorney who knows immigration law). Good luck. Otis C. Landerholm, Esq. Attorney and Counselor at Law www.LanderholmLawOffice.com
