    Ekaette’s Answer

    You can have a lawyer to represent you at the interview. Best to contact the lawyer early to have the opportunity to review your file and amend or add to your file and also go through the interview process with you. It's good preparation for the interview.
    You are welcome to contact me in Houston to discuss this and have some recommendations.
    Goodluck.

    Ekaette’s Answer

    There are two avenues you can follow. You can either apply to become a US citizen and petition for your Mum or her husband can become a US citizen and petition for her (assuming they decide to get married)
    You may apply to extend her stay for another 6 months and find a solution during that time.

    Ekaette’s Answer

    I am assuming you have deportation concerns. You may request a FOIA. However there is no guarantee these days with the sharing of information between agencies. You can also call the Immigration hotline to checkin any outstanding deportation proceedings.
    You may also choose to rectify the underlying challenge for your request by retaining the services of an Immigration Lawyer

    Ekaette’s Answer

    Your case will not be resolved in this forum. However, you can prevail if failure to respond was due to failure to deliver to the address on file AND you provided all requested evidence on the RFE.
