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. Speak to an experienced immigration lawyer for more information. Have a good week.See question
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.

Hi. Im a foreign citizen residing in USA on O3 visa. A year ago i separated with my husband (holder of O1 visa) and moved in with my fiance, green card holder for the last 10 years (he was married for 8 years to an american citizen and that;s how...
There is a big difference in the benefits you will receive as a spouse of a US citizen vs a spouse of a US LPR (Lawful Permanent Resident). As the spouse of a US LPR, you can immediately adjust status and the prior overstay would be forgiven. Not so as the spouse of a US LPR. You would have to wait to adjust status and remain in valid status until that time. The important question here is why your fiancé's naturalization application was denied. Sometimes, the denial is for reasons that cannot be fixed. Speak with an experienced immigration lawyer as soon as possible. Have a great week.See question
Hi, It's been couple of years that my mother has received U.S visitor visa and then she had visited U.S. Once she returned back to her home country, I have filed her I-130 and so on. Now she is living in USA with her immigrant visa. But now a d...
She would need to apply for re-entry permit, which would be easily issued and valid for 2 years for multiple entry. Even the second re-entry permit is not difficult to obtain, and would normally be valid for another 2 years. The third re-entry permit would likely be a challenge to obtain. Keep in mind that a re-entry permit only prevents CBP from solely relying on the time spent outside the U.S. to conclude that she has abandoned the U.S. as her home and lost her permanent residence. Even if she has a re-entry permit, USCIS may independently conclude that she abandoned the U.S. as her home. Thus, it is important that she maintain ties to the U.S. even if she has her re-entry permit (bank accounts, owing real property, etc.) She cannot enter on a Non-Immigrant Visa if she is a Lawful Permanent Resident. That is not an option. Have a great week.See question

Or does 245(i) only protect someone if the new sponsor is a family member? I have a petition from April 2001, but now have an employer willing to sponsor me. Thanks in advance.
You can avail yourself of the benefits of 245(I) if either a family member or an employer is willing to petition for you. However, an experienced immigration lawyer would first want to verify that you qualify for 245(I). A FOIA request may be advisable. Speak with a lawyer as soon as possible so that they can get such a request filed for you. Any immigration lawyer can help you, regardless of location. Have a good week.See question
