i have a household of 4. can i use child support i receive from my ex husband and student loan as a source of income to meet up with my annual income so as to meet up with the poverty guideline for 2016 to be able to petition for my spouse?
A student loan is a liability, that is considered a debt. It is not income. Alimony is income, but it's not a salary or wage. You need evidence. You may be best with a joint sponsor, but more information is needed.
I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney. Good luck.See question
Hello, My I-765 got approved on Oct 4 and I got approval notice on Oct 11. After that I haven't a received any updates and status still shows "Case Was Approved". It's been over 2 weeks already! I called customer service and they said it can ta...
I agree. The 800 USCIS teleclerks are contract workers, not actual USCIS Employees who read off a script and at times, may improvise, unofficially, of course. Don't really on everything you hear.
If you changed your address, then this complicates matters. Look for envelopes that are unmarked and looks like 'junk advertising.' People have thrown out the envelopes by mistake.
Too many have told us stories about questionable information given. None of the questionable advice can be easily proven, so if it sounds wrong, seek an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney. Good luck.See question

More information is needed. I agree and recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney who limits practice to immigration law. You may feel more comfortable speaking to an attorney unconnected to your employer. Good luck.See question
His sibling came with a Visa a long time ago and has expired.I was wondering If they still have to wait for a visa number or not. If not can they file concurrent the I-130 and I-485?
If they were not petitioned directly or indirectly for a visa by 4/30/2001 and can prove physical presence in the U. S. on 11/23/2000, then it will not help to petition them. No, they cannot adjust status and cannot pay a penalty unless the above can be proven after the visa number is 'almost' available 'if' they can grandfather in which seems unlikely.
If they file for adjustment, they can eventually be referred to immigration court for deportation. If they depart, then they are banned from immigration for ten years.

My green card interview is scheduled in 3 weeks and we found a babysitter for only our infant. Is it ok to take our 3 year old to my interview or little kids are not allowed to be there. Thank you very much!
It may prove unwise. If the three year old is disruptive, then the adjudicator has the right to reschedule the interview. Do so at your own risk. It may take months, perhaps longer for another interview.See question
Hi, I am working in MNC and respectable job on L1A visa. Unfortunately I am guilty on class 1 misdemeanor of 18.2.347 "visiting bawdy place". I need to go renewal of my visa next year i.e. 2017. Can my visa get approved?
The consular official requires a truthful answer. Otherwise, you can be indefinitely banned from all visas.
If you are too afraid to discuss this with your employer's attorney, then I strongly recommend an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney. Good luck.See question
My mother has been in the US for about three years now on a temporary Status (TPS) and I decided to not renew the TPS this year because I was getting my citizenship (which I got on October 14, 2016) in order to file in for her. How do I go about d...
One issue is whether your mom was inspected and admitted or paroled into the U. S. If so, whether her status will allow her to adjust status. The law varies and there may be different ways to approach this matter depending upon where you both live.
As a result, I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before matters get more complicated.See question
I'm a J1 Masters Student in Harvard University. I want to get a permanent resident card to live and work in USA. There are two options for me. First, to apply for asylum given the difficult situation in my country, Ethiopia. Second, to apply for E...
I agree with Mr. Brill. If there is a Section 212(e) two year residency requirement, then this creates significant complications. It may require focus upon the asylum matter.
All of us want to be optimistic, but it is important to be realistic, not just promote our success in these matters.
I strongly recommend an appointment or teleconference with a candid, competent and experienced immigration, who will handle your matter from start to completion. Good luck.See question

Based upon my question in the subject head: It seems as if immigration lawyers only handle paper law for a foreign national applying to enter or re-enter the U.S. And although there are penalties clearly defined on U.S. government customs and ...
The U. S. Attorneys are underfunded and have other more serious priorities. Private attorneys cannot prosecute Federal Crimes nor file criminal complaints. Complain to your Congressman about all the unfunded mandates from IRCA enacted in 1986.
It lead to even more underfunded laws that create more complications in the broken system. Reagan said, cut the red tape, but enacted red tape that the law abiding follow, who respect our Government.
Congress should not enact laws that it will find difficult to impossible to enforce. It should come up with viable alternatives. One attempt is the more recent eVerify. However, it means little if an employer simply goes off the grid.
I suggest that you complain to the Department of Labor or ICE at www.ice.gov. Good luck, but make sure that you have proof, not just a petty allegation that hispanics work there, or ICE will give you lip service and little else. Many have green cards, but are not required to speak English unless they want to apply for Citizenship by naturalization. Good luck.See question
