  • How does my boyfriend become a U.S. citizen?

    My boyfriend was born in Belize but was brought into America by his parents when he was six years old (he is 29 now, so that was 23 years and some months ago). He grew up in New York, attended school, graduated from high school, has attended commu...

    F.’s Answer

    More information on how he last entered the US (passport? visa?) is needed.

    Hasn't he filed for DACA? He appears eligible.

    First make him legal, with the help of a lawyer ... then, perhaps, many years from now he can file for US citizenship.

    F.’s Answer

    You can always ask ... that's the most that can be done.

    Doesn't CA provide healthcare options for people that are undocumented?

  • How long do I need to wait after RFE filing? It has been 4 months already after RFE.

    Hi I filed I-130 and 485 on December last year and got RFE for I864 and filed my RFE on April. But I didn't get any decision yet. I did E-request 1 month ago but still no answer. What should I do?

    F.’s Answer

    Don't waste time on e-requests. It is still early .. normally there is an interview about 6-9 months after you send in the RFE ... thus, you're being a little bit too 'eager' at this point.

    Exercise patience .. this is a long, and slow process.

  • Does it make a difference if i provide my SOC on my application for expungement eligibility for the FDLE?

    The form says providing your SOC Is voluntarily but not providing it would delay the processing time of the application

    F.’s Answer

    Do not file for expungment if you are not a US citizen .. it will create problems.

    Talk to an immigration lawyer before doing this.

  • May I know if rescheduling her appointment will cause her to lose her chance of getting her DV lottery visa?

    My friend received an interview notice for her DV lottery visa.

    F.’s Answer

    Why would she want to delay?

    The visa must be issued and she must move to the US before midnight on September 30th ... this is not a good time to ask to rescheduling.

  • As I can go to the United States , work, study and live there ?

    I'm from Chile and I want to study at Brigham Young University . But since I'm a student, I have the intention to work to pay rent and my studies.

    F.’s Answer

    Sorry, you will not be successful with this plan.

    Save enough money to pay for the entire 1st year of school/food/rent ... after that your foreign student adviser may be able to help you get a part-time work permit.

    Coming to the US as a B-2 TOURIST and then trying to take advantage of public (tax supported) benefits is not a good idea.
