My nephew has a Master's Degree in Computer Science and lives in Thailand. We found an employer who is willing to sponsor him for H1B for this season.
The H-1B petition is filed with USCIS by the U.S. company (petitioner) who wishes to employ the worker. IF and when USCIS approves the petition, the worker can apply for his corresponding visa document (to be issued into the passport) at the U.S. consulate which has authority over the worker's country / place of residence.

I have a friend who is gay, and he wants to marry his boyfriend. He would like to know if his boyfriend can petition him for a green card. Thank you!
Yes, same-sex marriage-based Greencard petitions are now possible under U.S. immigration regulations, provided there is a legal marriage and the petitioner is a qualifying individual.See question
I recieved a 10 year greencard through marriage because I had been married over two years at the time of my uscis interview.
If your Greencard eligibility was based on marriage to a U.S. citizen, you can only apply for Naturalization after 3 years of the initial grant of Greencard, provided you are still married to that person. If you are no longer married to that individual, then you would be subject to the 5-year waiting period everyone else would be who would not be eligible to apply after 3 years of LPR-status.See question

Generally, as other colleagues have stated, civil litigation cases in the U.S. (or elsewhere) do not negatively impact one's admissibility into the United States.See question

Depending on the disposition of your criminal case(s), this could very well have negative impacts on your immigration efforts later, especially at the felony-level. Your visa could be cancelled, you may have problems obtaining other visas in the future (at least for a while), and you will certainly experience issues upon attempted entry into the U.S. (incl. secondary inspections, and possibly likely refusal of admission).See question
I AM A GREEN CARD HOLDER AND I FILED FOR MY CITIZENSHIP AND WAITING NOW FOR AN INTERVIEW BUT AT THE SAME TIME I AM THINKING IF IT IS ADVISABLE TO PETITION MY WIFE NOW, FILE FOR I-130, AND SHES IN THE PHILIPPINES. WE GOT MARRIED LAST JULY 5, 2011
As Jeff Devore stated so well, DO file the I-130 petition(s) NOW and get a priority date (essentially a "date stamp") on those for later. Start that clock now, because on their own, those petitions have to sit there and "kill time". There is no good legal reason (I can think of) to NOT file those I-130 petitions....See question
I'm currently on a L1A visa and the company is terminating my position (before the visa has expired). When do the company have to notify the Immigration authoriy and how long grace period do I have before I have to leave the country?
While your status in the U.S. terminates on the day that your employment with the U.S. company terminates, you have a reasonable amount of time to get your affairs in order and depart the U.S. If you left within 30 days of your termination, that should be ok. It may help to also have a letter from the company stating that the termination was not due to performance or conduct (if that is in fact the case), to show that the job-loss was not caused by your own actions.See question

If you can file/amend the 2008 return, go ahead and do that. You may also want to go to the nearest IRS office locally, and order a Transcript of your tax returns. Also, include in your response to the USCIS letter (yellow), any other financial information which might be helpful, such as current W-2/1099, payroll statement, copies of pay checks, copies of recent bank account statement, etc. to show your income/earnings. (also include wife's documentation, if she's working).See question
to my home country. Can the time spent in my home country be counted towards the 2 year requirement? If the company makes a contract and pays me through my home country? If this is not an option is it hard to get a no objection waiver for a fulb...
The waiver will be easier if you have a U.S. entity with some clout backing your request, e.g. an interested government agency, acting on your behalf. What type of J-1 were you on? Medical? Depending on what your home country is, you might want to contact your nearest Consulate here in the U.S. and ask about their general policy for "no objection" letters. Was the financial aid from a private source or U.S. government source?See question
After the completion of the J1 (3 week research program) program I came back to my home country for a year before going to graduate school on a student f1 visa. Since I was aware of the 2 year home requirement, every 6 months, I came back to my co...
Good question, you want to start really documentation how and when you spent those required 24 months outside the U.S. Exit/Entry stamps in your passport, proof of travel arrangements, proof of your physical domicile (rental agreements, local driver license, etc. etc.) will all be helpful. Document where and how you have been living, what you have spent those 24 months doing. If you have attended college/university, it's quite easy to document that with the institution's help. Also think about vacations and other time spent outside the U.S. during that 24 month period. The more documentary evidence you can present on this overall issue, the better. Hope this helps.See question
