Your husband needs to file an I-130 petition on your behalf to prove that your marriage is bona fide and legal. He will also need to file a separate petition for your son. Once the petition is approved, he will then need to file an Affidavit of Support (and possibly an Affidavit of Support from a co-sponsor) with the National Visa Center ("NVC") and he will also need to submit original documents requested by the NVC. Once processing is done with the NVC, the case will then be sent to the US Embassy in the UK for you and your son to have an interview in order to be processed for permanent residency.See question
We have been working through the marriage and hanging in there by doing so I am putting myself and my children at risk. I'm caught between staying in a toxic marriage and put my kids at risk in order to complete immigration process or end the marr...
As long as you remain married, the petition may still be approved despite the current state of your marriage because the law only requires you to prove that your marriage was entered into in good faith. With that said, you should not stay in the marriage solely for an immigration benefit... safety should be your first concern. You should consult an attorney right away to inquire as to whether you have a case under the Violence Against Women Act. This law provides relief and benefits to individuals (women and men) who have been subjected to battery or extreme cruelty by their spouse who is either a citizen or resident of the United States.See question

It depends on the attorney. Most attorneys will charge you by the hour to review the documents. Others will insist that they handle the entire matter due to liability issues.See question
Can a Disordely conduct- engaged in a fight "Summary offense" stop someone from obtaining an RN license in another state? Is a Disordely conduct -engaged in a fight charge looked at as the same as "Simple Assault"?
A summary offense is not a crime under PA law which distinguishes between actions which are "crimes" and actions which are "summary offenses". It will depend on the state's licensing guidelines but it is important for you to know that it is not a crime under PA law.See question

Hi, I am on the 3rd year of H1B and will expire in a couple of months. I want to file for Green card with the same employer but without extending my current H1B. Is it possible?
It is possible but unlikely. In order to get your green card, your employer will need to have a labor certification approved on your behalf which can take time. You will need to consult with an immigration lawyer to see if you are exempt form a labor certification. Once the labor certification is approved, your employer will need to file an I-140 petition on your behalf. This can be done with premium processing which will get you a decision within 15 days for a fee of $1225. You will then need to wait for your priority date to become current unless you can file for adjustment of status concurrently with your I-140 which will depend on your education and experience. Again, it is possible depending on your background but not feasible in most situations to do this in such a short period of time.See question
is it true if an illegal immigrant is married to a u.s. citizen for 3 yrs the automatically become legal?
That is not true. Anyone who is in unlawful status in the United States must go through the adjustment of status process which requires an examination by USCIS. If a person is granted Lawful Permanent Resident status on the basis of a marriage, the foreign national can apply for citizenship after three years if the marriage remains valid.See question
I am currently on F1 status and my boyfriend asked me to marry him! :) Now, we honestly do not know how to proceed. However, we both know we need to fill up a lot of forms, but when do we file them? Would it be best to marry in the next few months...
You can get married now or after your master's program, because either way, you will be eligible for adjustment of status if you can prove the validity of your marriage. You need to make sure that you do all of the paperwork correctly because the filing of the I-485, Application for Adjustment of Status evidences your intent to remain permanently in the USA which is inconsistent with your student visa.
You will need to file the following forms once you are married: I-130, I-485, I-765, G-325A for both of you, I-864. Your fiancee will be the petitioner and you are the beneficiary. You will also need a medical exam.See question
