The purpose of my visit was to actually get fingerprinted for my citizenship. My parents are both naturalized citizens- so are my brothers and sister.
This must be related to the claim that you've "abandoned your residency," meaning that you were outside of the country so long without significant ties here that it appears you no longer intend to make the U.S. your country of residence. A good attorney can carefully review your circumstances to see if there is a way to challenge this claim. If you are still here in Atlanta, I am happy to consult with you about your options. Are you scheduled for a court date here in Atlanta?See question
Kindly let me know which documents are needed for the filing of I-130 and I-485..I knw abt marriage certificate..but we do not have any joint lease or co-mingling of financial assets as I am on B2 visa..
The instructions for the petitions can be found online, and they outline the necessary documents. However, as one of the other attorneys noted, there are still many ways to get this wrong. If your application is rejected you will have to file all over again and risk your current status expiring. Make sure to hire an experienced attorney right away. Please let me know if I can help.See question
Ticket for no ins/invalid registration received in 2010. Vehicle impounded. Straightened out all paperwork, got vehicle out of impound & paid a fee to clerk at court house. Never went to court b/c I figured fine was paid in cash/no receipt at thi...
You first need to get the warrant lifted if you paid the citation. I think the trouble is going to be the proof of payment if the court clerk has records as unpaid. You should still be able to resolve this one way or another with a lawyer who is willing to take on the challenge. However, if you're talking about bringing suit against the jurisdiction for the error of a warrant, you'd need to seek out a civil rights attorney to bring a civil suit outside of the regular criminal process. Again, this is going to depend on your ability to prove that you appeared and paid the citation.See question
I have not been assigned to a judge yet, so I don't know which solicitor I will speak with. I know some judges do not allow their solicitors to offer a reduction to a non-reportable offense. How can I find out if the judge I will be assigned to a...
It's almost impossible to find out anything about a case prior to court at the Atlanta Municipal Court unless you have a lawyer who knows the solicitors well. Even then, it's still difficult. You'll need to show up the day of, and see what you can do. Come with reasons why the solicitor should reduce it. Defensive driving class completed, maybe?See question

A good attorney would tell you to take a close look at what is going on with your life currently that is causing these multiple arrests. You need to get ahead of this not only because you can end up with serious criminal consequences, but because you deserve better for your future. Definitely get some good legal representation right away before it's too late, but also try some solid reflection. Maybe counseling, AA, or something to get you out of this rut. No judgments - just experience talking. Good luck to you.See question

It sounds like you may be asking more about sex offender registration requirements in Georgia where you reside. Your MA conviction cannot be sealed from Georgia, as the other attorneys have said, but if you have particular sex offense convictions the laws of Georgia might require you to register here. In order to make sure you're in compliance, or to see if Georgia will provide this letter that you mentioned, you should contact an attorney right away who is knowledgeable about sex offense matters.See question

Much more information is needed to properly answer this question. Are you looking to file a civil suit for damages or appeal your criminal sentence/case? If you are looking for a lawsuit, you need a civil rights "1983 lawyer."See question
I understand that the "expungement" law in Georgia has recently changed. Can arrest records be expunged or sealed if they are associated with a "first offender" plea? First offender means the conviction can be sealed, but can the arrest records al...
Unfortunately, I have to disagree with the previous answer slightly. While a plea under the conditional discharge statute (OCGA 16-13-2) was included in the new Record Restriction law (even if the date of offense was before law change), a traditional first offender sentence was not unfortunately.See question

Keep in mind that you won't be able to talk with the Judge directly (in most jurisdictions), but rather the Judge's assistant or case manager. Call the Judge's chambers (the number should be listed online), and ask for the proper procedures. Do not get into the details of the case at that time because it isn't the proper avenue. You may need an attorney to properly present your defenses and evidence.See question

I can't speak for the exact procedures for requesting a court-appointed attorney in Cobb State Court (because every court is different), but I would try to get some answers before court if possible. You want as much time to prepare for the resolution of this case as possible. First, try calling the Cobb County State Court Clerk of Court. They are usually a good reference of information. Ask them who you would contact to request a court-appointed attorney. If you do not get a good answer there, call the solicitor's office. However, do not talk with them about your case because this information can/will be used against you. Good luck to you!See question
