Easy to file a FOIA on Form G-639. Useless unless you know what you're looking at. Get a lawyer, please.See question
We been together for four years and we just got married. I'm a us citizen and would like for my husband to get his green card.
The main thing is how your husband entered the US. If he entered with a visa and overstayed, the process is generally simpler, assuming there are no other bars to his green card. If he entered unlawfully, or if he left and re-entered after being in the US for more than 1 year unlawfully, you've got a much more complicated path.
You need to have a formal consultation with a lawyer to advise you. Be very careful. If he's not eligible for a green card, or if he requires a waiver, and you file without it, all you're doing is buying him a ticket to immigration court for deportation. Please seek counsel as soon as possible.See question
I was under the age of 18, when I applied asylum. I am still maintaining F-1 status. But I only have 1 year left before I graduate thus my status will end. if my application is denied now, should I wait after I graduate and apply for asylum in re...
I don't understand why you would want to "put yourself out of status." Nor ask for a referral to immigration court. Let your asylum case play out. If it's not approved, you'll get referred to court and you'll get a second chance.See question
I got married when I travelled here 2014. I got green card and it will expire after 2 years. I want green card for 10 years. I have one son 1 years old.
You will need to file Form I-751 if you received a 2 year green card based on marriage. There are several caveats depending on your marital situation, and the 751 must be filed at the correct time and with the correct evidence. Failure to do so can result in loss of status or placement in removal proceedings under INA 216.
Here's a link with more information about filing an I-751:
As others have stated, it is prohibited for us to discuss fees. Contact an attorney privately for more information.See question
Recently there was devastating earthquake occurred in Nepal. And USCIS granted TPS for People of Nepal who are here before June 24. My wife got that approved coz she was here at that time. But I just arrived to USA last month and I am not eligible...
Unfortunately you have the meet the residency requirements. However - there is always the possibility that the date may be extended. Until then, you will need to find another way to stay here. If you're on an H-4 - perhaps your wife has a green card process started. As a Nepali she won't be subject to the lengthy waits like for Indians and now it is possible for H-4's to get work permits if they meet certain conditions.
You have to make a decision and a plan based on what the law is, not what it might be, or what you'd like it to be. Forget TPS for now and concentrate on a plan that will get you valid status.See question

How can they apply for residency.
There is a common misconception that being here for 10 years gives you the right to apply for a green card. There is NO SUCH LAW.
As my colleagues have explained, there are options for people to *file* for residency, if certain other conditions are met, such as not having a prior removal order, and being placed into removal proceedings. Until those conditions are met, you don't even have the right to apply for a green card.
But even if those conditions are met, it doesn't mean you will get a green card. Just like when you apply to a school, you might have the right to apply, but that doesn't mean you will get in. Think about how many people apply to a school like Harvard and don't get in.

My husband is going to immigration court due to the fact that he was working in North Dakota about 3 years ago; the border patrol took him to jail for one month he got a lawyer and he was free. But his last court was in March and the judge told hi...
Getting a lawyer will help you not be confused. If your husband does not file an I-589, he may not have any other form of relief available. What does that mean? It means he will either have to leave the US on his own accord, or get deported. Neither of these are pleasant choices.
Going to immigration court without a lawyer is like walking into a dark room blindfolded.See question
My boyfriend is on an H1 B visa. Recently his employer instituted a policy changing their pay to 40 hours with bonus. This employers practices are very dodgy. They already pay under the prevailing wage by his contract. He is suppose to be paid 27....
If the employers fail to pay the prevailing wage, you can file a complaint (now that the government is open again!) to the DOL Wage and Hour Division.
DOL only cares if the prevailing wage is paid, whether by salary + bonus, or with commission, etc. Failure to pay the hourly wage as by contract is more of a breach of contract issue, not a DOL issue.
However, the fact that he is working full-time would also be a potential violation of the terms of the H-1B petition which is authorized only for 30 hrs/week. It is improper when an employer tells DOL the job is part-time (in order to bring the total amount payable down) but then squeezes 40+ hours out of the hapless employee.
Whether the fact that the policy is new matters or not depends on how long the employee has been on H-1B; you have to look at the amount actually due and whether the bonus will bring the total yearly salary up to the prevailing wage or not.
You should run the situation by competent immigration counsel.See question
