    As of this time the Anchorage field office is processing cases that were filed on or before September of 2015. Your case is still within the window since you filed in October. I would do a second infopass once the processing date passes and if nothing happens then I would contact a lawyer.

    Are there any certain conditions while on immigration bond such as if the individual has been arrested again on new charges would bond be revoked such as it would on a normal bond or would it just continue without any interuption? No ICE hold has ...

    The bond is breached and ICE/ERO may, and probably will, take into custody. A new bond hearing may be requested from the IJ. The TA may argue danger to the community depending on the arrest. Good luck.

  • I have an affirmative asylum case and I was just placed in removal proceedings after being convicted of 2 duis

    I am a Mexican - yes I am the one that wears a sombrero - but gangs want to kill me because I helped defend my brother's reputation - is my affirmative asylum i589 automatically cancelled if im now proceedings - and male fellatio is not something ...

    Nicolas’s Answer

    The lawyer that represents himself has a fool for a client. Just saying. If you were placed in removal proceedings because of the DUI's they should be terminated or administratively closed until you affirmative asylum is completed. Though DUI is a serious crime it should not bar you from an asylum application.

  • Can I apply for my citizenship even though my green card is expiring in 3 months?

    I asked the USCIS customer service and one agent said yes another agent it's up to my discretion.

    Nicolas’s Answer

    Yes you can apply for naturalization even though your card is expired. The card is evidence that you are a resident, it is NOT your residence.

  • Does she needs any copies of my documents?

    Nicolas’s Answer

    How old is your daughter? If she is under 18 she already is a citizen. Now what document checklist are you referring to? Please provide more information on this. BTW she would not need any of your documents if she is over 18 and applying to naturalize.

  • Can you go on a cruise when i - 539 is pending?

    Hello, i have to ask this question again. USC IS accepted my request to expedite for i - 94 and we are still hoping to get it before we go on a cruise.My mom "won" an interview for a green card through the lottery if she be denied to enter USA aft...

    Nicolas’s Answer

    If you have to ask the question then the answer is no. If the cruise leaves the U.S. she will abandon the application. Do you want to take that risk? I do not think so. Its better to be prudent and avoid issues with admission or abandonment of the application.

  • Are they gonna void her visa?

    I'm so confusing right now. My mom came with B2 tourist visa and got 3 months stay. We applied the extended stay on January and her original I-94 expired on February. We are waiting for the result but until April still no answer.so she decide to g...

    Nicolas’s Answer

    There are various issues. First, by leaving she abandoned the application. Therefore from a strict view it means that she overstayed because by abandoning the application she did not leave in time under her I-94. It may argued that even if the application is approved, under the rule above the extension would be still void due to abandonment. Second, her visa is automatically cancelled the moment she overstays and she has to appear at the consulate in order to get a new one. Immigration rules are tough, that is why before doing these types of things, like the one you presented here, you should consult with an immigration attorney.

  • Additional evidence required for TPS.

    I have applied for TPS(designated to Nepal) on December 10. They send me the receipt letter of my TPS . But recently I have received another letter from USCIS which says additional evidence required. Before, I have submitted my i94 visa pass...

    Nicolas’s Answer

    The letter they sent you should spell out what the evidence they require is. If it does not say anything I would 1) resubmit all documents you already sent, 2) if there are criminal issues involved send ALL arrests and dispositions and 3) make it clear in the cover letter that the RFE did not ask for anything specific. Also do yourself a favor and get a lawyer.
