I applied for US citizenship in February this year based on my residence in the US with a green card for almost 10 years, went for fingerprints, had my interview in June. The officer told me I passed the civics and English test but due to the fact...
There are cases for naturalization pending for over a year due to security checks. Sometimes, attorneys need to file for mandamus action to force a decision on the application. You do not necessarily need to renew your I-551 (Green card), not unless you're going to need it for some reason. You won't lose your permanent residence just because your green card expires. Speak to an immigration lawyer for further information. Honestly, you should have used one from the beginning. Not to alarm you, but people have walked into a Naturalization interview only to get deported because they didn't know the law as it relates to crimes in their background. Immigration lawyers are here to help. No need to roll the dice by representing yourself. Have a good week.See question
i have a sponsor and i want to know for what things he is responsible. for example if i dont pay my personal bills as the phone bill, this bill goes to my sponsor or it break down my credit score?
The obligations are explained on I-864 (pages 7 and 8 of current version, version 07/02/15). See https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-864.pdf. Additional explanation is at the bottom of page 1 of I-864P. See https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-864p.pdf. Responsible for means-tested public benefits. The Affidavit of Support means the government can technically sue to recover that money, which they often will not do due to the administrative costs of same. Not every government benefit triggers the obligation, for instance, unemployment payments do not trigger the obligation. Many state sponsored health care programs will similarly not trigger an obligation by the sponsor. The sponsor can always consult an immigration lawyer for more details. Have a good week.See question
My wife (sponsor and US citizen) and I (immigrant) submitted I-130, I-485, I-864 along with other supporting documentation. Apparently we left Part 4 1a, 1b & 1c - first, last and middlename fields blank. The RFE has two comments: 1. Form 1-864. ...
It appear that you attempted to complete the I-864 for a Joint Sponsor but made errors on pages 1 and 3, mismatching names and/or omitting names. Honestly, you should be using an experienced immigration lawyer to assist you. Using a lawyer from the outset if much cheaper, faster, and better. If you err, it could affect the alien in decades to come. There may be other issues with your application that you cannot perceive without legal training. Have a good week.See question
Just won thedv 2017 lottery, planning to move to states if i can get my greencard, and after that i would like to appy for citizenship but not sureabout the age requirement for the kids
If you won the lottery, it does not mean you will actually receive a visa. You have to act quickly. Obtaining assistance from an immigration lawyer may be a wise idea. Your concerns about citizenship are premature at this time. Have a good week.See question

Need to be physically present for one in two days, and no absences from the U.S. of 6 months or more. Many other requirements. If you marry a U.S. citizen in the interim, you only need to be present for 3 years, not 5 years. If you serve in the armed forces, it is further reduced. USA has been at war since 2001, which means that service in the armed forces now entitles a person to immediate citizenship. Have a good week.See question
Is President Obama creating "Startup visa" to encourage foreign entrepreneurs to start companies in the U.S.? Where is difference between E-2 visa and "Sturtup visa"?
You are probably referring to the International Entrepreneur Rule. It is not actually a visa. It is a proposed rule whereby the President can use his discretionary authority to parole aliens into the U.S. for the purpose of running a business. Alien is legal speak for "non U.S. citizen" or "foreign national" or "foreigner". Parole means that you allow someone to enter the U.S., but for legal purposes, they're not deemed to have actually been admitted. At this point, the rule Is just a proposed rule.

I'm looking to get married , and looking to get pointed in the right direction with documents that will be needed .
The first step is to file the petition with USCIS. However, you should strongly consider having a lawyer assist you with this process. The K-1 visa has some specific requirements, such as the marriage must occur within 90 days of admission to the U.S. The filing for Adjustment of Status does not have to be made within 90 days, but the marriage must occur within 90 days.
