Hello, My wife's i-601 Waiver (not i-601A) was approved in Juarez. We have gone forward and updated the DS-260. What should we expect next? What are the specific next steps? Will she get another interview notification in the mail? I have an attorn...
Coordinate with the consulate and let them know about the approval of the 601 waiver. Give your lawyer a chance to work on it and get back to you within a reasonable time.See question
I am on b2 to visit my family & my wife perm got approved last month, therefore her i-140 (Dates Current) along with AOS is about to go in next two week. So can i adjust my status here along with her or i should go for consular processing back...
I suggest that you schedule a private, comprehensive consultation with an experienced immigration attorney so that your specific situation and questions can be addressed thoroughly. In deciding whether to pursue adjustment of status, you must consider the pre-conceived intent issue and other issues that may arise during a comprehensive consultation. If you have doubts whether the I-140 is approvable, ask your wife to suggest to her employer that the I-140 is filed first and wait for it to be approved before spending money on the adjustment of status. Again, I suggest that you sit down with a lawyer who can help you decide whether to pursue adjustment of status or consular processingSee question
My marriage interview approved almost 1 month still didn't receive green card how long do I have to wait?
There is no set time. Some cases can be decided earlier than others, depending on the information provided by the petitioner and the beneficiary.See question
What's the difference between priority date and processing/ I have a green card just last month and would like to bring my son from Ghana, Africa. He is 21 now.
Processing time pertains to the period of time it takes USCIS to process and decide an immigrant petition.
Priority date is the date when an immigrant petition is received by USCIS. It determines the order in which visas are issued (based on a first in first out system). This system applies to non-immediate relative petitions under the preference system.
The way it works, when the beneficiary/visa applicant is outside the U.S., is that a petition is filed initially; after approval, consular processing may be initiated when the priority date i reached. You will be able to know when the priority date has been reached by reviewing the Visa Bulletin, a monthly publication of the State Department. If your priority date is EARLIER than the cut-off date for the beneficiary's category, it means that a visa is immediately available and consular processing may resume until it is completed.See question
I hired an immigration attorney in another state to process a J1 hardship waiver FORM I-612. I went with him as he was recommended by a friend. My communications with him was very cordial and prompt till my application was filed. I paid a fee of $...
There are many ways to communicate - emails and phone calls as you have indicated here; certified mail, communication via courier, or setting up an Infopass appointment may work too. Because of the number of individuals involved in the process, it is hard to pinpoint who should be held accountable for this error.See question

If you are planning to become a citizen after 5 years of being a legal resident, ice would investigate where did you work on those years,in the N-400 application says that where you have worked in those 5 years prior to applying to become citizen
Yes, the N-400 application is another opportunity for the government agency (USCIS) to review your immigration, marital and criminal history - to make sure that you were entitled to the immigration benefit that was granted to you. Please make sure to discuss issues with a licensed professional and make sure to be forthcoming with any potential issues so you can be advised appropriately.See question

You can be the beneficiary of another H-1B petition as long as you are maintaining you H-4 status (through your spouse) and the H-1B petition will not be subject to the lottery since you have already been granted an H-1B status within the past 6 years. Please consult with an experienced immigration lawyer.See question
Given the new events in the country, and the raids ICE is conducting, I figure it'll be a matter of time before they do checkpoints; my question is: as a Naturalized Citizen, what can I do if I get asked for documentation, and get arrested for not...
It is unfortunate that the recent developments have caused a lot of anxiety in the immigrant communities as well as among US citizens like you. I don't know whether it will go that far but you can simply ask them to check your citizenship. For your peace of mind, you can carry a copy of the identity page of your passport.See question
