If your aunt violates the terms of her visitor visa, then you should not be held responsible for having provided an invitation letter. If you wish, you could communicate with immigration officials about your concerns. Best wishes.See question
I have been married for the last 5 years and i got my green card with this marriage. We are seprated now but not divorcee. I want to apply for naturalization will it effect my case without her?
If you have been a permanent resident for 5 years, and you meet all of the other requirements for naturalization, then you could apply for naturalization on your own, and not based on your marriage. Your current separation will likely not cause problems with USCIS, unless USCIS suspects that your marriage to your spouse is fraudulent. You may wish to speak to an immigration attorney about this concern.See question
In short, my fiancee was sexually assaulted and threatened to not tell anyone about of it. For fear of both her and my life, she did not report him and felt forced to reply to his sexual text messages (he knows what her vehicle looks like and the ...
Your fiancee needs to report the incidents to police. Your fiancee should also take many important steps for personal protection. The police should be able to provide some suggestions and assistance regarding protection. By not reporting the incidents, the perpetrator continues with assaults and threats. It would be extremely difficult to be approved for a U visa if your fiancee does not report the incidents to law enforcement officials. Best wishes.See question
One of my parents' I94 expires. Should I wait to file their 130 form with my naturalization application together or wait after I become a citizen? Thank you!
You are not eligible to file I-130 petitions for your parents until after you have become a U.S. citizen. If you file the I-130 petitions before you are actually naturalized, then your I-130 petitions will be rejected or denied. You must wait. Best wishes.See question
I am filling out an application for the J-1 visa waiver of the 2-yr home residency requirement. One of the questions says “Date and place of first entry into the U.S. on your original exchange visitor (J-1) visa. Entry information should refer to ...
Based on your posting, it appears that the application is requesting information about the J-1 visa for which you are seeking the waiver of the home residency requirement. The J visa waiver process often involves complex issues. I suggest that you work directly with an immigration attorney experienced in J waivers to avoid potential problems and to have the best chance of success.See question

You placed your question in the "Domestic Violence" practice area. Are you a victim of domestic violence? If you are, then I suggest that you get help to get to safety as soon as you can. Regarding the situation regarding your marriage, living arrangements, and U.S. immigration officials, I strongly suggest that you consult very soon with an immigration attorney experienced in matters involving marriage-based immigration issues.

Hello. I'm personally about to apply for Irish citizenship since I'm eligible but I have no intention of letting go of u.s. Citizenship. so does the u.s. Allow dual citizenship? Thanks.
The U.S. does not have a problem with a person taking citizenship of Ireland. The U.S. regards your US citizenship as your "first" or "true" citizenship, but does not object to citizenship of Ireland. As a matter of fact, I am a citizen of the United States and Ireland. Best wishes.See question
Can i be able for naturalization after 3 years as i am married to USA citizen. Kindly help me
If you are married to and living with your US citizen spouse, then you may apply for US citizenship as early as 90 days before your 3-year anniversary as a permanent resident. One of the requirements is that you have spent at least half of that 3-year period physically present in the United States. Another requirement is that each trip outside the United States is less than 6 months long, unless you are able to convince US immigration officials that your trip outside of 6 months or longer did not break the continuous residence requirement for US citizenship. I suggest that you work with an experienced immigration attorney to avoid problems and to have the best chance of success.See question

In your I-751 waiver application, did you indicate that you are a victim of violence or mistreatment from your husband? While you are waiting for the decision on the I-751, you may go to the nearest USCIS office and ask for a stamp in your valid passport that extends your permanent resident status, usually for one year at a time. If you do not have a valid passport, then you could bring two passport-style photographs to your meeting at USCIS to request a temporary document that shows that you are a permanent resident while your I-751 is pending. Be sure also to take your I-751 receipt. You may schedule an appointment at USCIS using InfoPass. Best wishes.See question
I am an Iranian-born US citizen. I am divorced and want to bring my girl friend who lives in Iran and I have met a few times to USA. I would like to know: - If I marry her in Iran, can I still bring her under K1 (Fiance) visa or I have to apply...
If you marry your girlfriend, then she will not be eligible for a K-1 visa. If you marry, then you would need to file an I-130 petition. You could also file for a K-3 petition if you wish. But you could do so only after filing the I-130 petition first. I suggest that you work with an immigration attorney to avoid delays and to have the best chance of success.See question
