  • what is the estimated processing time?

    My husband was given the white slip 221G after the interview and was told that "it will take 1 to 2 months". They also kept his passport and returned all other original documents. Is there any hope?

    Kevin’s Answer

    A Section 221(g) decision is a denial. If additional documents are requested or if the officer is mistaken, then either way, an attorney should look into it. A carefully worded inquiry and possible request for an advisory opinion can help at this point.

    If the consular official believes that the applicant misrepresented a fact affirmatively or by leaving out a fact, then this a challenge and may require a petition for a waiver. The petition can be denied, so an attorney should be involved before a possible second determination. Yes, there is hope.

  • My father overstayed his B2 Visa, and throughout this time lost his I-94 and passport. Could I just go ahead and adjust status?

    My father came to the US (2003) with a B2 visa but he overstayed it. Now, I am 21 and US Citizen, and I would like to petition for him. Only problem is that he lost his I-94 and the passport of the stamp. All he has is the Visa passport and a copy...

    Kevin’s Answer

    A FOIA request will do little at USCIS unless there is a receipt number for a previously filed application which included a copy of the I-94 entry card. If not, there may be enough proof to show a lawful entry, but assistance from an experienced immigration attorney seems best. Good luck.

  • My immigration lawyer is not doing his job. I paid him $10.000 to get my green card and I wanna know how to get my money back

    I'm French, married to an American. I hired a rather shitty lawyer. I realize now it was stupid. He is sexist. He has been rude to me, my husband, his secretary in front of us, he stood my husband up when they had an appointment, he never calls...

    Kevin’s Answer

    More information is needed, $10,000 seems like a bit, but an attorney should serve as a good counselor. That means, taking the time to explain things in a reasonable manner. Sometimes, when a client is promised results at a free ten to twenty minute consultation, then they often are willing to pay a bit more than those who would take the time, charge a fee, investigate and potentially charge less.

    Kevin’s Answer

    I agree. As far as fees, these can vary depending upon facts that should be carefully disclosed and discussed at an appointment, not simply through a brief meeting, phone call or post. Otherwise, the fee structure may suddenly change a month or two after you hire a less attentive office.

  • Is there any chance? Or can something be done??? Immigration law??

    My husband was deported after being convicted of a drug charge and serving 1 year in prison and being release on parole, but now we want to know if he will ever be able to get a visa etc? I am a USA citizen?!

    Kevin’s Answer

    I agree. The high cost and substantial risk of loss, combined with the delay and uncertainly make this sort of effort an extremely emotional roller coaster for the client and any attorney that is serious about doing justice. You have the right to move to be with your husband; you can always return to the U. S. if you can afford it.

    Kevin’s Answer

    I agree. The University must also petition you for a part time H-1B visa, but must do it without eliminating or putting your current full time H1b visa in jeopardy. Good luck.

  • Error with immigration judge decision

    Hello im a legal resident of the usa since almost 30 years ago unfortunately that didn't help my brother to avoid removal from usa my brother was arrested by ice in his own house because of an agravated dwi we asked for a bond hearing that wa...

    Kevin’s Answer

    The effort to stop ICE from doing an unlawful act can prove cost prohibitive, but if you are interested in making a point, then ICE has to be mandamused as soon as possible if it violates a non-appealed Immigration Court order.

    If ICE took your money, then you should get it back, eventually. As it is said, "don't hold your breath." Contact a competent and experienced immigration attorney to discuss a writ of mandamus based upon the willful and wanton conduct.

    Kevin’s Answer

    You must be adjudicated as a delinquent with police or in Juvenile Court. Otherwise, you may have been charged as an adult.

    An experienced immigration attorney should look over your criminal conviction record before you take any further action. Good luck.

    Kevin’s Answer

    The issue is 'whether' they contacted the U. S. Embassy, so that a consular official found you to be a danger for visa revocation. If so, it's unlikely that a new B2 visitor visa will ever be issued until that designation is miraculously lifted.

    It's not necessarily a terrorist list in this situation, but what is known as the lookout list. It is unusual for visas to be revoked, but it happens. The threats were unwise.
