Dear Sir or Madam, My husband is an LPR and is going to apply for Citizenship. I have checked the eligibility and he is eligible to apply. What are the advantages of hiring an Immigration Lawyer? Will hire Lawyer make any difference on the...
Screening for naturalization is not simply a matter of reading the USCIS checklist: it is very important to review with an attorney how the green card was acquired, and any conduct since - At naturalization, the person's whole history - immigration, criminal, travel, marital, tax, employment, etc. - comes up for close review, and USCIS is highly motivated to check for any irregularities in how residence was obtained, and whether the applicant has ever done anything that might render them removable, as well as the finer points of what constitutes "good moral character", which can be impacted by things like unpaid tickets, owing back taxes, or failure to pay child support. Even with an entirely clean history, filing through a lawyer can ensure that the case is processed timely, and can follow up on the applicant's behalf when processing gets bogged down.See question
Hi ! I have P-1 visa and my question is - " how can my wife and my son visit me in US " ? What trie to do?
My colleagues are correct that your wife & son may apply for P-4 visas (with marriage & birth certificates proving their relationship to you, and proof that you are maintaining valid P1 status with the petitioner), but they did not mention that they will need to also prove strong ties showing the likelihood that they will timely return to the home country (such as a job or school they have to get back to), as these visas require nonimmigrant intent.See question

Do NOT leave the country after filing the I-485 and before your EAD/Advance Parole combo card is issued: Doing so would abandon the entire adjustment application and forfeit the filing fees. Stay put in the US at the very least you get your travel document.See question
Currently am in with L1-B Visa and stationed in one Location , Needs travel to other work location for work. How long will it take to get my I-94 approval , Please guide me on this
Your question makes no sense, so perhaps you need to rephrase it. If you are already physically present at ANY location in the US, then you have an I-94. It was issued electronically upon inspection by a CBP officer at the airport where you were first admitted to the US, and it can be retrieved online with your name, birthdate & passport information at https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov.
If your company has filed a petition to amend your L-1B status since you entered the US, including a different work assignment, and you are awaiting the I-797A Notice of Approval from USCIS with your replacement I-94 (that portion in the lower right hand corner will still show the same I-94 number as the electronic one issued by CBP) then you need to reach out to the company's attorney, as only they will be able to tell you when the petition was filed, and whether or not they requested Premium processing. Strangers on the internet are not going to have access to that information.See question
I am the applicant and my spouse is deployed.
You should bring a copy of your spouse's orders to show that your spouse is not able to be present, rather than not willing.See question
Is it the date that it is postmarked or the date they scan and enter it into the system on?
It is the date they enter it into their system and generate a receipt notice. A postmark is NOT the same as USCIS deeming it received.See question
I got an immigrant visa thru NIW and I entered the US a few days ago. But I want to apply for a reentry permit ASAP. But I have not received my green card yet. Should I wait for my green card to arrive or can I just apply for a reentry permit righ...
You can do that, but NONE of my colleagues have noted that you then put yourself in the high-risk pool of people who may be deemed never to have assumed residence in the US at all: A green card is not a mere convenience, you have to intend to actually assume primary residence in the US at some discernible point. If you do not take steps to establish that you have a residence in this country and show ties that you plan to come back to it, you could later lose the green card, such when applying to renew the ReEntry Permit, or much later, when seeking naturalization, assuming you will ever spend that much time in the US. You need to discuss your actual plans in detail with an attorney, in a private & confidential setting.See question
Can a US citizen help his/her parents attain US citizenship if he/she is already married? Or does being married impede it? My fiancé is a US Citizen but her parents are immigrants. We are considering the possibilities of marriage in the near futur...
Being single or married does not make a difference in terms of the adult US citizen's eligibility to file an immigrant petition in the Immediate Relative category for a parent. Where it DOES makes a difference is that it changes the applicable household size for the sponsor. Thus, it affects the number of people her income must be sufficient to support at or above 125% of the federal poverty limit in the I-864 Affidavits of Support she is required to execute for each parent, without needing to include your income or that of someone else as a Joint Sponsor.See question

They will honor a rescheduling for good cause, with copies of your tickets, etc., but really only do this once, or they may deny it.See question

Yes, it is possible for you to seek a divorce here, but it may impact your immigration status. You should consult with an immigration attorney, or one of the nonprofits dealing with family-based violence such as Safe Horizon or Sanctuary for Families, as well as consulting a family law attorney about divorce.See question
