And do i need to have it notarized after translation ?
You do not need to have a professional translate it for you, and it does not need to be notarized. It just needs to contain a "certification" at the end of the document that states that the individual who translated it is proficient in both the English language and the language the birth certificate is in. You can find a sample certification statement to see what it looks like on the USCIS website. Good luck!See question
In a deposition, Is the defendant required to appear at the Plantiff's attorney's office if the defendant has already entered a hand delivered typed confession to the circuit clerk's office? The defendant does not feel it is necessary since they v...
Yes, if you are summoned to appear at a deposition, you must show up, unless it is cancelled for some reason. A hand-delivered typed confession stamped inside of the clerk's office has nothing to do with a deposition. At a deposition, the Plaintiff's attorney will have an opportunity to ask the Defendant questions in order to try to obtain more information about the case and elicit more evidence. Furthermore, a conference hearing in court also has nothing to do with a deposition. A party may show up in court and see the opposing side (or opposing attorney) multiple times throughout a lawsuit. The court requires status court dates and conferencing hearing dates often because the Judge wants to know what is happening in the case, and wants to make sure the parties are staying on track (i.e. completing discovery and depositions in a timely manner, etc. in order to proceed towards trial). If, possibly, the statement contains all information that the Plaintiff's attorney wants to obtain, then I suppose they could cancel the deposition, but that is pretty unlikely. If the Defendant does not have an attorney, I highly encourage the Defendant to obtain an attorney to assist them through the process.See question

I know it may be costly to hire an attorney, but it can be far more costly to you not to hire one at this point in time, before you wind up in removal/deportation proceedings. I encourage you to consult with experienced immigration attorneys and find one who you can afford. If you are not able to hire an attorney, you may wish to contact legal aid organizations in your area to see if there are any pro bono attorneys available to assist you. You will need to submit strong proof or evidence of your marriage--a second interview typically means that the government is extremely skeptical of the whether you married in good faith. Good luck to you.See question
I got a travel visa for 6 months stay.I was illegal stayed in US for 9 years.Now i got back to my country.Is there any different way to go back to US?Or should i find a lawyer in my country ?Thank you.
I recommend finding a US lawyer to assist you since US immigrations laws apply. There aren't many facts in your post. If you have any basis on which to attempt to reenter the US, you will certainly need to apply for a waiver to enter. The waiver will waive your unlawful presence, having been in the US unlawfully for more than 1 year, and allow you to reenter before the 10 year bar ends if it is granted. Definitely speak with a US experienced immigration lawyer. Best of luck.See question
My dad has been in the US for about 8 years now after his visitor visa was expired. I am a US citizen now. Shoud I petition him through form I-130 and wait for approval before he can apply for adjustment of status I-485? or can we send both forms ...
You may file both forms together since your father is an immediate relative of a USC (yourself), but please be mindful that additional forms and supporting documentation will also be necessary to make the application package complete. I highly recommend hiring an experienced immigration attorney to prepare the applications for you--you want to do it right the first time around since the stakes are higher with your father being out of status right now. Should you make any mistakes, you could put your father at risk and loose all fee's paid to the government, so it may be worth it to pay an attorney to assist you the first time. Best of luck to you and your father either way!See question
I come from Canada
Your post doesn't contain enough information for advice at this time. Are you in the US or Canada now? Are you in removal/deportation proceedings? What were the reasons listed for denial in the I-485 and I-765 denial letters that you received? You may be able to file a motion to reopen or reconsider, or appeal, the denial of the I-485, but will depend on the specifics of your particular case. However, the time period to file any motions or appeals is very short, so you should act immediately so as to avoid forfeiting your rights. I suggest you hire an experienced immigration attorney as soon as possible to review your denial letters and help you determine an appropriate plan of attack for your case. Best of luck to you!See question

Mr. Calehr has provided a very clear explanation. Based on what you have stated in your post, I agree with him. If your situation is unique in some way, and you believe you may be an execepton, you should consult with an experienced immigration attorney to discuss your specific scenario. Good luck!See question

You can apply for citizenship after 3 years if based on marriage, and after 5 years otherwise. Also, as my colleagues have stated you may actually submit the application for citizenship 3 months prior to when you would be eligible. Sounds like you already removed the conditions on your 2 year conditional green card and obtained your 10 year permanent green card--if that's the case, there's nothing further that you need to do right now before applying for citizenship. Your daughter's will have to self-petition to remove the conditions on their green card and obtain their 10 year permanent green cards--whether you have actually divorced or not yet will be important in their cases.
As for your marriage, it is hard to annul a marriage--there must be specific grounds on which it could be annuled as defined by Illinois statute. Your divorce may raise a red flag to immigration, but immigration is not concerned with the particulars of the divorce--they are just concerned with whether it was in fact a good faith marriage at the time of marriage. So, I wouldn't let your husband's threats worry you.
I strongly encourage you to hire both an experienced family law and immigration law attorney to help you with each situation. Good luck!See question
I answer phones and service Insurance policies. My anxiety causes me to be inaccurate if I'm put on the spot by a customer. I'm taking medication and doing relaxation plan but have had a written warning from my boss.
I encourage you to contact an experienced employment and labor law attorney in your area to discuss your situation and obtain advice on the possible consequences. You may also with to contact a disability law attorney to determine eligibility for any benefits.
Lastly, I would also encourage you to discuss this with any doctors that you are currently seeing--I am sure that they deal with things like this often and may be able to guide you to experienced people to advise you.
Good luck.See question
