I want to marry and sponsor my girlfriend who is holding an F1 Visa. She came to US 5.5 years ago. She married a USC 2 years after that. They went to the interview and, then received the Intent to Deny Letter because their answers didn't match. Sh...
The prior denial is relevant for the USCIS to determine the bona fides of a second spousal adjustment application with a different husband. This could affect the application in a few different ways depending on the facts. Assuming there was not finding of marriage fraud, it will still result in an increased scrutiny of the current marriage. If there was an affirmative finding of marriage fraud the situation is more serious and potentially fatal. I would need to look at her denial notice to be able to fully evaluate the situation. Normally, when someone is out of status and the application is denied they are put in removal. This would automatically increase the burden of proof that you will face in demonstrating a bona fide marriage. If she was not placed in removal, remains in status, this is a positive factor as it would indicate to me there was no affirmative finding of marriage fraud. However, absent reading the NOID and denial notice I cannot evaluate the difficulties you may face in a second application.See question
my husband leaves in overseas and i apply for him ihave green card so do u think if i leave in my country for five months and go back to the USA for 2 or 3 months its a problem ,they may also revoke my green card
Permanent residency requires an intent to reside in the US. If an LPR stays outside the US for more than six months they will be interviewed regarding their departures on return. If an LPR is outside the US for a year without permission or exceptional circumstances he will lose his status. While being outside the US for more than six months subjects the LPR to added inquiry on return, the test is one to determine the subjective intent of the alien to reside in the US. Among the issues that weigh in the balance are whether the alien maintains employment in the US; whether the alien pays U.S. income taxes (remember always to file U.S. income tax returns and never seek an exception as a nonresident alien);Whether the alien maintains a residence in the U.S. In certain situations you may get permission to return without loss of residency rights - - if for instance you were overseas on a religious mission, government work and a few other categories. I would recommend you consult with an immigration lawyer before - - and it is important that you do so before - -you leave to see if there is a means to take the uncertainty out of your situation.See question

We routinely file the affidavit of support with the spousal application and then supplement at the interview by bringing recent pay stubs and, if applicable, any new tax filing.See question

You left out the critical piece of information. How long were you outside the U.S.? From what country did you obtain refugee status? If you are a refugee you may request the U.S. Embassy issue a Refugee Travel Document. If you were outside the US for an extended period, be prepared to show the evidence that you were hospitalized and unable to travel.See question

If your husband entered the United States lawfully, he may adjust status in the US. My guess is he did not and even though he was only 1 at the time, he may not adjust his status here until Congress decides to permit that. The Republicans have been strongly opposed to permitting in country adjustments but instead want all people who entered the US without inspection to leave and re-apply for admission. Hence, I do not foresee any change to this law in the near future. The problem that your husband now has is that began to accrue "unlawful" presence in the US when he turned 18. Any alien who has a year or more of unlawful presence is barred for ten years from re-entering the United States. There is a waive available for this and it is based on the hardship to his U.S. citizen children and spouse. You need to see an immigration lawyer to navigate through this maze. It is complicated. On the good news side the Administration has announced that they will be implementing a program so that the alien beneficiary may wait in the U.S. pending the outcome of the administrative processing of the immigration request. THis will enable your husband to remain with you for most of this time.See question
We have been in a relationship for over 5 yrs and have a 2yr old child. I'm 19 and so is he... if we do our taxes seperated will it affect us when we are in the process of fixing his status?
Filing joint tax returns is often used as one indicia of a good faith marriage. However, you may also file, "married but filing separately." You should not file as single, since you are not, in fact single. If your husband does not have a social security card, you may request a tax payer ID when you file the return.See question
can on be forgiven for that?
A single crime involving moral turpitude will render an alien inadmissible under INA 212(a)(2)(A) with limited exceptions; also if the individual is already admitted into lawful permanent resident status then they are removable if: the crime was committed within five years of admission; or ten years if LPR status was obtained under 245j. Also, if a Green Card holder leaves the US he/she will be considered an arriving alien under 101(a)(13)(C) and render them inadmissible. Finally it may have an adverse effect on a finding of good moral character if applying for naturalization.See question

Your question cannot intelligently be answered until we get some additional information. You say your BF is from Jamaica and not a US citizen. Does he have any status in the United States? Does he have a Green Card for instance? Or did he come over as a visitor and then overstay his visa? How long has he been in the United States and in what statuses - - thus, if he has a Green Card now, but came in as a visitor, tell us when he entered as a visitor and when he got the Green Card. Finally you say he is "in jail for weed." However, we need to know the amount and whether he was selling it or possessing it for his own use. Most drug offenses result in charges of removability if a lawful permanent resident. The exception is for possession for less than 30 grams. However, we need to know the precise statute he was convicted under, where and whether it was in state or federal court. I would strongly urge you to seek out a qualified immigration lawyer to review his situation in detail.See question

If you are a USC, and he has been in the US for more than ten years, you have two possibilities. One is for your husband to seek a relief called cancellation of removal. This is difficult to get, but possible. You will need to prove ten or more years presence in the US by objective evidence; 2 that you will suffer an extreme and unusual hardship if your husband is removed; and 3) that he is of good moral character. you need to discuss this with an immigration lawyer to really understand what this entails. Alternatively, you may petition for him here to be processed in Mexico. He will need a waiver to re-enter. The Obama Administration issued a new guideline the Friday before last suggesting that the alien may remain in the US while this is being processed in Mexico. However, he will have to return for an interview and if denied will be denied re-entry. Not knowing the facts, I cannot tell you which is best for you, but I sincerely suggest you speak to a qualified immigration lawyer near where you live.See question

Because you are under 18, you have not yet begun to accrue any unlawful presence. THis ends when you turn 18.You will then have six months to exit the US before you will be barred from returning. While each country is different, generally speaking a country will issue its nationals a travel document to return so long as you can prove that you are a citizen of that country even if it is not a passport. Hence you could go to the Italian consulate with your birth certificate and get a travel document to Italy. The expiration of your passport will not generally preclude this although your being a minor might. AS to financial assistance for the journey, I know of no such organization that will assist you.See question
