i got my asylum approved recently then i got engaged to girl who came recently to US on B1 visa. I am trying to get her a legal status to stay in the US until i get my green card. She is not in my case because i was single when i applied for asylu...
You need to wait to file for her until after you become a permanent resident. Then, if you marry her, when you file for her as a permanent resident, she will need to wait an additional period of time, approximately 2 years, before she will be eligible to apply for permanent resident status. Your petition for her will not give her the right to remain in the US while she is waiting. She may have other options to try to remain in the US legally while waiting. It would be a very good idea to consult with an experienced immigration attorney about the case. Best wishes.See question
I just became a US citizen. Can I apply for my parents to get greencards? My parents moved to the US about 9 years ago. They came on tourist visas and never left. I was 12 yrs old at the time. But now I'm a US citizen. Can I apply for my parents?
Yes, but it would be important that you proceed with caution. I suggest that you work with an experienced immigration attorney. We are available by phone and email. Best wishes.See question

If you remain unmarried, then your LPR parents may petition for you. You would be in the family-Based F2B category. You may consult the Visa Bulletin, published by the US Department of State each month, to keep track of processing times. You can get to the Visa Bulletin here: https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/law-and-policy/bulletin.html . A rough estimate of your waiting time, from the time your parent files the petition until you are eligible to apply for permanent resident status, is approximately 6-7 years. You may have other options available to you. It would be best for you to consult directly with an experienced immigration attorney to explore the possibilities. You would likely be able to travel to the US as a Canadian citizen while you are waiting for your eligibility. Best wishes.See question

Asylum law is very complex. I strongly suggest that you consult directly with an immigration attorney who has experience in asylum cases.

I am a Syrian physician who entered the state on J1 Visa , later I applied for TPS and got the approval and the EAD . What will happen if I want to drop the J1 and continue on TPS EAD ? What will happen to the 2 year home country residency ? Ho...
As a J-1 physician, you still have the two-year home residence requirement. There are ways that you can safely avoid the two-year home residence requirement, or obtain a waiver of that requirement, but they require careful planning with an experienced immigration attorney. I suggest that you contact an immigration attorney to move forward with this situation. We are available by phone or email. Best wishes.See question

If i change to seperated. Do immigration needs a proof for that also. I mean some kind of legal paper work. How it works?
As a follow-up to your previous question, you will not need proof that you are separated. Again, as stated previously, if you are separated, then you will need to have at least 4 years and 9 months as a permanent resident in order to apply for naturalization. Best wishes.See question
I have a question regarding N-400. Part 10 Information about Martial History. I m no longer with my husband since three years and married since five years but still married. In this case do i have to mark my status as Married or Separated in part 10?
You need to answer with the truth. If you are separated, then you need to choose "separated." How long have you been a permanent resident? If you have been a permanent resident for at least 4 years and 9 months, then you may apply for naturalization on your own. Because you are separated, you may not apply based on marriage to a U.S. citizen, so you need to wait until you have been a permanent resident for at least 4 years and 9 months.

If you are filing jointly with your spouse, then you should wait until you have reached the 90-day window of time before the expiration of your permanent resident status to file the I-751. If, on the other hand, you are filing alone, without your spouse, then you may file at any time. I strongly suggest that you consult with an immigration attorney regarding your case, to avoid mistakes and to have the best chance of success. Best wishes.See question
