The original green card, based on marriage, was valid until 08/27/2016. We received a I-751 notice dated 05/31/2016 which extended the conditional resident status by one year. But it is unclear, one year from which date: 08/27/2016 or 05/31/2016? ...
The "resident status" was extended one year. That is, from the date it would have otherwise expired (meaning the expiration date on the initial green card). You may also have an interview with USCIS coming up in the next few months to complete the I-751 process (or not, some cases are approved w/o interview). If your return will be near or after 08/27/17 you should go to the local USCIS office (make an Infopass appointment) and request an I-551 resident stamp be placed in your passport so that you have unexpired proof of your resident status.See question
I am on green card here in USA, and I need to travel to U.K. as my father died and his funeral is on Tuesday, 25, 2017. I want to attend anyhow. Can anyone please guide me ASAP.
Looks like this is not the place to post emergency questions because it just popped up and nobody else has answered it. The caption at the bottom says 6 days ago. Anyway, subject to many caveats, a person can travel for less than six months with their passport and green card and expect to be allowed back into the USA.See question
I live in Tewksbury MA with my Fiance. She applied for naturalization and done fingerprints on 10th March 2017. How do we know which one is her Local Field Office? I am assuming local field office would be Boston MA. Can we change local field offi...
Where were the biometrics taken? Although, Manchester, and Boston are in the same district (D1) - USCIS doesn't typically allow NH to have jurisdiction over MA cases (unless they are transferring workloads internally). I would think Tewksbury makes sense to schedule at the Lawrence, MA office for an interview. You might check with them to see if they handle those interviews. The process of transferring a file from one office to another can eat up a good portion of the month of time savings you're looking for, however.See question
I was born outside the U.S, but my parents were naturalized, and I am under 18, so could I get a citizenship through them
You didn't mention whether or not you currently have a "green card"; that is important - and not something to really discuss on an open forum. You and your parents should get in touch with an immigration attorney to figure this out privately.See question
Hi, My H4 EAD is valid till August 2017. I filed for the extension and I-765 application got rejected due to incorrect fee and USCIS returned the application with the supporting documents. Before re- submitting the application I have the...
I agree with the other attorneys who mentioned that a rejection of the application due to improper fee is not the same as a denial. You shouldn't have to change that part of the form -- just resend with the proper fee.See question
I am currently on an F1 visa which expires in July 2017. I have applied for my H1B visa in the April 2017 lot, but don't know the results of it yet. Due to a family issue I need to travel outside the country around Aug 15th. Since my F1 will have ...
You should meet with an experienced immigration attorney to discuss the matter. There is too much detail to cover. Some attorneys offer free initial consultations (disclaimer, I am not one of those) and some offer televideo consults by Skype or other similar services. It sounds like you would benefit from going over the possibilities in full and with your partner.See question
Im 20 years old (turning 21 this September), unmarried, and currently reside in the US and was granted the deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA). My father is a permanent resident through marriage, who applied for citizenship but was denie...
Your question raises many more questions for me than simply can your father file a petition for you. He can, but is that the only or best option for you? I'm not sure if it is, maybe. Should he try for citizenship again? Is he still married and if so could/should your step mother file for you instead? Can you travel on advanced parole while protected by DACA and would that help your case or is that too risky? There are many issues you should look at when deciding if he should file a petition for you.See question
My refugee travel document was expired in January. I need to renew it.But now I am a green card holder.What do I need to do
If you are a permanent resident you would need a re-entry permit rather than a refugee travel document. But, you should speak with an immigration lawyer before travelling out of the USA in these uncertain times.See question
I got the Permanent Green card as a divorced person. How i have to file for the citizenship? As a divorced? do i have to resumit all the Divorce papers?
Yes you file as divorced. The major difference that comes to mind is that being married to a US citizen spouse enables a person to file for Naturalization early (3 yrs as LPR) and divorced does not (5 yrs as LPR). You should not have to resubmit the proof of divorce.See question
My name is Gardy. My Fiance came to the USA on a K1 Visa on December 17, 2016. We got married on 2/2/2017. Now, we are thinking about filing I-485 for Permanent Residency. So, we are getting worried about possible delay and / or implication.
No, the deadline is for getting the marriage accomplished. Applying for adjustment of status doesn't have a deadline. Still, there is little to gain from delaying. So getting your documents in order and raising the money for fees should be a priority.See question
