A domestic violence conviction would make you deportable. You need a good criminal defense attorney working in tandem with an experienced immigration attorney - to have a chance of keeping your status and getting a green card down the road.See question
I have been studying in the US for 10 months and I still go to college. I meet a girl and fell in love with her. She is a USC and we are getting married in 2 weeks. We plan to apply for AOS in January. I entered the country legally and haven't com...
Congratulations on your upcoming marriage!
In response to your questions:
1. Everything should be fine, as long as it's a real marriage and you're not subject to any grounds of inadmissibility (criminal record is just one of the possible grounds).
2. Yes, there is no length of time you're required to have lived in the U.S. before filing for a green card.
3. Hire an experienced immigration attorney and you should be fine.
I entered the U.S. without inspection about 8 years ago (basically I snuck over the border from Mexico). I am from Brazil. I have been living in the U.S ever since. I married my wife this year. She is an American citizen. I want to file the right ...
As you now know from all of the other responses, you are ineligible for adjustment of status, as you did not make a lawful entry. Depending on the details of your situation, there may be ways for you to get your permanent resident status but you would, most likely, be required to process your immigrant visa in Brazil before coming back to live in the U.S. legally. This is a complex area of the law and you need the best possible legal representation.See question
Hi, I have 2 year green card married with USC but he just left me. My GC is gonna expire in May 2017. I know I have to remove conditions, What should I do?
This makes the goal of removing the conditions on your residence much more complicated, but not impossible to achieve. You need the best possible legal representation.See question
I am holding an F-1 visa. I plan to marry my girlfriend who is an American citizen. I plan not to apply for AOS for a while. Will it be a problem to re-entry the US and apply for the permanent residency later? Thank you so much.
It may be a problem at entry and/or it may become a problem at the time of your adjustment. If you have no intent to return to your home country at the time you enter the U.S. in F-1 status, you're inadmissible as a student.See question
My bf and I are planning to get married. He is US citizen and I am international student who came on J-1 Fulbright scholarship. We need an experienced lawyer who have experience in waiving the home residency requirement and help me in obtaining a ...
There are many of us out there - you have to research and pick the attorney who you want to work with. Fulbright waiver cases are not easy, unfortunately.See question
Hi i am about to file for greencard thru my wife..and my wife is US Citizen. anybody interested taking my case and can u tell me the lawyer fee and other cost for applying for green card
Assuming it is a good-faith marriage and you're eligible for adjustment of status, most attorneys would be interested in helping you with your case. The legal fees will depend on the complexity of your case. I suggest that you pick the best (and not necessarily the cheapest) attorney for the job. After all, you get what you pay for.See question
I got my first Green Card in February 2014 (through marriage). In January 2015 I applied for Removal of Conditions on a Green Card. Soon after that I received a letter, that my Green Card is extended for one year, while they are processing my do...
If you're still living together with your U.S. citizen spouse, then you can, in fact, apply for naturalization, even though your I-751 Petition is still pending. Good luck!See question
Hi, A little about myself, I am a British Citizen who is currently married to a US Citizen where we both reside in the US (I own a work visa). As far as I am aware, the only two forms I need to file for Adjustment of Status are: file I-130 AND...
You're overlooking a lot, actually. Your U.S. citizen spouse will, in fact, file an I-130 petition on your behalf and you'll file your I-485 application with it, but these are just the main forms that you'll file. Both the I-130 and the I-485 require you to file a number of ancillary forms, as well as supporting documentation. There is also an underlying question of your eligibility for adjustment of status. If you can afford an attorney, I would hire one. If not - the only reliable source of information on the internet is the official website of the immigration service: www.uscis.gov
I've befriended an Indian family, and the wife wants me to sponsor her brother for immigration to US-- I'm hesitant to do this since I don't know the man altho she swears he's a good man.
It depends on what you mean by "sponsoring." If what they're asking is a letter of invitation for a visitor's visa, I don't think there is any risk in it for you. But you're being asked for sponsor this man for an employment-based visa or green card, you should have a serious conversation with an immigration attorney.See question
