  • Can I get married?

    I am originally from the Bahamas. Upon my mother moving us to the states (New York) she filed for citizenship & has since (somewhere in my preteen years) been granted citizenship. Immigration has since called me to be sworn in, but I got into a li...

    Eric’s Answer

    Is your fiance a US citizen? Are you currently in jail? I think you need to speak to an immigration lawyer before you do anything. Are you merely asking how to get married or are you concerned about your immigration status?

  • Should I apply for citizenship based on 3 year rule

    I got my green card through marriage to a US citizen. Things are not going well and heading toward divorce. We have been married for 3 years and ive a 10 year green card. I consulted with an attorney and he is advising me to apply for citizenship ...

    Eric’s Answer

    I agree with the attorney you consulted with. It makes no difference whether you wait until 5 years has passed. Either way, you will need to show that you got the green card from a legitimate marriage. There is no benefit to waiting.

    BUT, you MUST retain an attorney to represent you, especially because of the problems in your marriage.

    Eric’s Answer

    I agree with my colleagues. An experienced immigration lawyer can help you prepare for the interview and even attend with you. I strongly recommend that you consult with counsel. It is money well spent considering what is at stake.

    Eric’s Answer

    I agree with Mr. Yakzan. I also wonder whether the child had a re-entry permit? It is possible that the mother applied for that on her behalf and on the behalf of the child. If so, she might not have abandoned her green card.

  • Hi dear .we are young family from Ukraine , we want to immigrate into USA .Do we have any chance? Thank you

    We are both master degree

    Eric’s Answer

    There are several ways that you can immigrate to the US. A lawyer would need a lot more personal information in order to advise you on your options. Most lawyers can talk to you by skype if you would like. Just contact an immigration lawyer and ask for a consultation.

    Good luck!

    Eric’s Answer

    Each state has its own laws relating to wrongful death cases. It can be quite complex. Your Uncle's lawyer should be advising him on the merits of the case, what can be recovered and the reasonableness of any pending offers.

  • Clueless Daughter left without a Mother due to negligence of her Dentist.

    My mother called me around noon told me she couldn't get my son from school she had a tooth ACTH and she was going to the dentist. I never would have thought that was the last time I talked to my mother. She passed away that day. When I went to t...

    Eric’s Answer

    First, I am very sorry for the loss of your mother. Second, it is impossible to know whether your mother passed away due the negligence of the dentist based on the information you provided. I highly recommend you schedule an appointment to meet with a medical malpractice lawyer in your area. Most malpractice lawyers will not charge for an initial consultation.

    I wish you the best of luck. Again, my condolances.

    Eric’s Answer

    I am concerned about why you not only entered the US with a false name, but continued to represent your name falsely to the government during the green card and citizenship process. You need to consult with an immigration lawyer. You may be able to fix this, but I would not do anything without getting good legal advice, more than you can get in this forum.

    Eric’s Answer

    I cannot solve your problems on AVVO. If you have already retained an experienced immigration lawyer, you should listen to his/her advice.

    Good luck!
