  • If I change my last name because I’m getting married, can I still help my parents get papers?

    Nassim’s Answer

    Assuming you are otherwise eligible to adjust your status in the United States, changing your name will nto be an issue, you just have to trace it. When you apply for your parents you must submit your birth certificate and proof of your name change. Make sure you are eligible to adjust, you mentioned you have DACA so not sure under what basis he is going to file for you? DACA does not give you status to adjust unless you are otherwise eligible under 245(i) or (a) of the Act. If you entered with an advanced parole you received while under DACA, make sure you retain an experienced immigration attorney to file your adjustment. Good luck

  • Should I only send the new versions of the form? Or the old versions too?

    Nassim’s Answer

    Only submit the new forms and make sure her medicals are also on the new forms. With the medical you never know until the day of the interview so check with the medical provider and if an old version was used, take the updated version on the day of your interview.

  • Should i apply for vawa or apply as a widower of american citizen to adjust my status and get my permanent residency.

    Nassim’s Answer

    I highly recommend you consult with an attorney on this! There are plenty of non profit attorneys who help with victims of domestic violence/abuse. Take all of your documents with you to better asses what avenue to take. You haven't provided enough information, it really depends on several factors and the weight of the evidence you have. You didn't mention how you entered the US, if you have prior removals, criminal record etc. Look for a non profit close to you and consult with them. Do not attempt to apply on your own. Good luck.

  • After being approved for the I-601A waiver, can I just file for an adjustment of status?

    Nassim’s Answer

    You need to retain an experienced attorney to help with the remainder of your case. You can not file for your AOS inside the US! Make sure you have no other grounds of inadmissibility before you leave for your interview. The I-601A waiver only waives your period of unlawful status in the US.

  • Can a jobless green card holder file a petition on behalf of his wife and minor daughter to get them an immigrant visa?

    Nassim’s Answer

    You need to consult with an immigration attorney before having your husband file for you! If he only had his LPR card, there are certain restrictions in filling the petition if you want to remain in the country. I've had numerous cases come to my office where the LPR spouse filed for his spouse and children and the petitions were denied because the family was not eligible to adjust in the United States. The "jobless" issue is not what you should be concerned with as you can always have a co-sponsor. Find a local attorney that specializes in Immigration and consult with them so you don't waste your time and money applying for something just to have it denied. If your husband was a USC, this wouldn't be an issue but he's a LPR so the law is different. Good luck

  • If a mom receives a green card, can her illegal daughter also get a green card?

    Nassim’s Answer

    I agree with my colleagues. Many factors go into it, you have to hire an attorney to help you with the process. You can find many qualified attorneys on this site that are close to you. As long as your daughter was under 18 at the time of marriage a petition can be filed for her by her USC Step Father. Please do not attempt to do this on your own!

  • How i can fix papers for my mentally disabled brother

    Nassim’s Answer

    How old is your brother? If he's eligible you can file for a Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS). Once you obtain an order from the state court you can apply for a special immigrant visa on Form I-360 and apply for adjustment of status to get his green card on Form I-485. You must hire an experienced attorney! Do not attempt to do any of this on your own! Good luck
