My U.S. citizen husband will be filing a petition for me to get a green card and I do not fall under 245i. I have heard I will be asked to finish the process in my country of origin; mexico. Is this true? Is there any way around this since I am planning to be in school? Also, is there a good houston attorney you recommend for this
It depends on whether or not you entered the US legally.
You should retain an experienced immigration lawyer, whether myself or one of my colleagues, to review all the facts, advise you, and handle the case.
J Charles Ferrari Eng & Nishimura 213.622.2255 The statement above is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship. Answers on Avvo can only be general ones, as specific answers would require knowledge of all the facts. As such, they may or may not apply to the question.
How did you enter the country? There is a new law that might allow you to obtain the waiver while you are in US. The fact pattern you provided is not enough to answer your question. hire a lawyer to assist you. Good luck!
