I came to the US as a tourist last year. My mother and stepdad got married last year when I was 19years old (1 month before I became 20years old). My stepfather petitioned me by adoption. My I-130 got approved but my adjustment of status (I-485) j...
You may be eligible for other relief but your mother petitioning for you will not work as she is not presently a United States Citizen and you will be 21 in a few months. Meet with a local attorney who can ask follow up questions and learn more about your background to determine whether you have any basis for remaining as once you leave you may not be immediately eligible to renter having overstayed.See question
I was supposed to pick up my children at 5:00 p.m. this past Sunday. My ex-wife refused to give me the children because she claims that I owed her a black pair of cargo shorts for my son. She said she would not "provide the children" unless I prov...
She seems to be interfering with your right to share time with your children.
If the Agreement was approved by the court, then she faces contempt and other sanctions for failing to comply. Keep evidence of her refusals and meet with an attorney who can assist you with the proper filings to have her comply with the Agreement.See question
and I live with Social security and disability but my wife are the main supporter?how is going to affect my savings and small amount of silver coins?
You can get a divorce despite all of what you explained. Spousal support and division of assets and debts will be determined as part of the divorce proceeding. If your coins etc were acquired prior to the marriage then they may not have to be divided.
Consult with a local divorce attorney as these matters are fact specific and many more questions will need to be asked for you to have a full understanding of the process.See question
I filed for divorce recently but cannot serve him because he is living in hotels in bad neighborhoods and moving from place to place. He has also been very verbally threatening to me. He is living with a woman who has had her own child taken away ...
If you limit contact and the court did not find your reasons valid, you may face negative consequences of having done so. Furthermore, some counties have standing orders which address parental contact with children pending a divorce. Check with the clerk to make sure you are knowledgeable of what is required in your county.
The concerns you have are valid. You or your attorney may bring these concerns before the Judge handling the case via temporary or interim motions so the Judge can issue a ruling on how or if he is to have contact with them.See question

You may have the ability to pursue a disestablishment. Take the Court's order or Final Judgment that dealt with the support and any Orders subsequent to that time to a local attorney for review. Disestablishment is not possible in all cases. Proper and specific review of your case is required.See question
She is now 21 and wants to move here to FL. My husband is now a Permanent Resident.
Yes. You may sponsor her, but, given the current processing time, if your husband sponsors her it will reduce the wait by about five years.See question
i want time sharing with my child, and she hasnt responded to the petition 20 days from the service, can i get a defeault judgmenet and win my case? never married, just a 4 month old baby, and do I have to wait until she answers to order her to su...
You will need to meet with an attorney. You may get the clerk's default but thereafter the matter will have to be set for a hearing or expedited trial. Normally the court does not favor deciding custody and time sharing issues by default as the Mother's input is important to a determination of the child's best interest. Legal reasoning and evidence will be necessary in your case and so it is encouraged that you seek the assistance of a family law attorney.See question
The parties agreed to recalculate child support after one year, per MSA. Now, wife wants to disregard the waiver agreement due to unemployment & loss of immigration status. Post dissolution, wife reported she can't work (was fired). Wife is re...
The exact language would have to be reviewed and so I suggest you take the entire document and the Final Judgment which incorporated it or ratified it to a local family law attorney. Agreeing to recalculate within a year may exactly be the same thing as agreeing not to modify for a year.See question
I'm citizen, my daugther is in Peru.I send I-130 to USCIS and i received I-797, with PREFERENCE CLASS:201 B INA MINOR CHILD, what the means? and what will be the next step in my case? How long i need to wait to NVC give her a visa??? Thank you ...
It means she is an immediate relative - a minor child under 21 of a US Citizen.
It may take another year or more for the process to be completed and for her to be able to enter as a permanent resident. This is only the first step and is not the actual visa application.
Consult with an attorney.

moonths. We didnt think it was imparative that we file right away. I was headed back to visit him and was denied entry. we just filed....will I have an issue obtaining my green card?
You were perhaps denied entry because having married a US Citizen the officer may have felt that you intend to reside in the US. If they feel your intent is to permanently reside here then you can be denied entry as a B1/B2 is for a temporary purpose.
If this is the only issue and assuming you did not overstay for more than 6 months any previous entry and also assuming that you are not other wise inadmissible, your spouse can file for permanent residency for you through consular processing.
