is it a good Idea to postpon meeting with ICE until the greencard is granted? what should someone normally expect from meeting like this? what are the chances they will proceed with a case even after knowing that change of status has been filed?
Adjestment of status filed through spouce (US Citizen)
I strongly recommend tyou retain an immigration attorney to assist you and to obtain as much information as possible prior to meeting with ICE.
You need to retain an experienced immigration lawyer immediately 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.
I second what the other attorneys have said - you need a lawyer in this matter.
During a meeting like this, it is hard to predict what ICE will do. ICE has the power to detain an individual and/or begin removal proceedings. If it begins removal proceedings, you might have to apply for adjustment of status before an immigration judge. Please note that ICE is likely to begin removal proceedings even if application for adjustment of status has already been filed.
