Two years ago, at the end of a bitter marriage, my now ex-wife accused me of domestic assault because she thought that would be her way of getting an annulment and not a divorce. I went through the process and was all charges were withdrawn. I a...
This may or may not affect your chances of obtaining your H1B visa. Under US immigration law, criminal offenses are treated very uniquely and an experienced immigration attorney can review the details of your incident, analyzing each element of the nature of the offense involved, to determine if it is likely to resent problems to you or not in the H1B process. You should definately hire an experienced immigration attorney--failure to have this matter reviewed and properly dealt with beforehand if there are any issues could make application for your H1B unnecessarily complicated and result in a denial. It is worth it to pay an attorney to sit down and review the offense and help you determine the possible consequences before you get stuck in a messy situation, which could cost you far more in the long run.See question

There is no such thing as a 6 month wait period after a criminal offense. If you are convicted for an offense that would disqualify you for DACA, then you will still be disqualified in 6 months or a year from now. The offense either disqualifies you or it doesn't--the passage of time will not "waive" it. You really should consult with an attorney before you go to court on the criminal matter to ensure that you do not jeapordize your ability to apply for DACA.See question

The NVC has hundreds of thousands of cases and they process cases/schedule interviews in order of first received typically. So, it could take quite a while before you receive notice that your interview has been scheduled. I would not even worry until at least 60 days have passed. If that time passes and you have not heard anything, you may inquire by email. If you are uncertain or worried about any complex issues with your case, contact an experienced immigration attorney to assist you with the remainder of the process. Good luck!See question

In my opinion, you will be fine. An officer is very unlikely to are if you stayed 2-3 weeks longer than anticipated originally--besides, your visa stamp is valid for 6 months so you are well within your authorized period of stay still. Even if they do notice and ask, sounds like you have a very good reason why you decided to stay a bit longer and you can just simply explain that to the officer.
I don't think you are being too paranoid--it is always better to be proactive and ask in advance and consider these things than to get stuck at the border with a problem. Better to be safe than sorry! :)See question

You really need to consult with an experienced immigration attorney. This is a very messy situation and an attorney will need a lot more information to be able to help you. You say that he has been indicted for re-entry--do you mean convicted? Is he truly in jail or is he in federal detention right now? Has his deportation been reinstated? Is he scheduled to be deported any day now?
If you just want to marry this man, you may contact the facility where he is in custody and ask what their guidelines are for such situations. You may or may not be able to marry him right now while he is in custody. However, even if you do marry him, it sounds like you may never be able to live with him here in the US as a result of his prior actions.

Our child has a medical condition and his mother took him out of state to a hospital without telling me. I am the insurance provider and was not notified for three days where my child was.
You should consult an experienced family law or child custody attorney who is licensed to practice law in IN. I am only licensed to practice law in IL, so I am unable to give you any specific legal advice. However, it will depend on IN's laws as to custody (physical/residential v. ability to make legal/medical/religous/etc. decisions). Also, in some states such as IL, there are laws regarding whether or not a parent can remove the child from the state. An experienced family law attorney in IN can assist you in determining if there are any similar laws in IN and/or the ramifications of such. Good luck.See question
just keep them incarcerated
The idea of parole is to grant the convicted individual freedom. In other words if a person is granted parole, they are free to reside wherever they want, with whomever they want, and live their life freely at last. If they do not have a home or place where they can reside, perhaps they would want to try to locate available space in a homeless shelter until they can get on their feet and afford to rent a place to live. Your question is a bit unclear, so if this does not answer the question, you may need to post additional details.See question
Moving to another apartment complex
What does your current lease say about giving notice of whether you intend to stay in your current apartment or leave? Have you complied with all notice requirements? Has your landlord complied with all notice requirements? Why don't you just call your landlord and explain what you would like to to do? Hopefully, your landlord will be reasonable and you can make the transfer. Good luck!See question
