A person is not required to have an attorney for immigration court. A person does have a right to representation by an attorney, but the government will not pay for it. So many, many people represent themselves in immigration court all the way through the merits hearing. It would be in his best interest to consult with an immigration attorney before his hearing in June to discuss the specifics of his case, and get information about that judge and that court.See question
My husband filed his n-400 two weeks ago after a week we got married. Can he file his petition for me or do we have to wait for him to become a citizen ... please help
A Legal Permanent Resident may file a petition for a spouse. However, because the spouse will not be an immediate relative, there will be a waiting period before the Adjustment of Status (green card application) may be filed. You would need to wait until your husband takes his oath of citizenship (making you an immediate relative) or until there is a visa available according to the Department of State's Visa Bulletin. You should also consult an attorney about your eligibility to complete the Adjustment of Status. Just being married to a U.S. citizen does not automatically qualify someone for a green card.See question

You should definitely consult with an experienced immigration attorney. You will need to provide more information, as well, such as: 1. How old was your brother when your mom married his dad? 2. Is your mother a US citizen, or Legal Permanent Resident? 3. Is your brother married? 4. Your brother's complete immigration and criminal history, if any. There will be more questions, but these will certainly be key.See question

Possibly. You do want to be very careful about considering the Advanced Parole route for reasons already mentioned in other responses. But you may also qualify for the I-601A, Provisional Waiver. You would still have to leave the U.S. to get your green card, but you would be able to do the vast majority of the work (including obtaining the provisional waiver) before you leave the U.S. The waiver is based on extreme hardship to a qualifying relative (spouse or parent). It's a pretty complicated and lengthy process, and I strongly recommend that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney to review your eligibility and likelihood of approval.See question
So, my boyfriend has a criminal case open, he paid his bail bond from the criminal case and since he has an immigration warrant he was taken by immigration too. immigration set a bail for him of 15,000 dollars which we paid it with a bail bond ma...
He has two separate issues now that he must deal with, criminal and immigration. The criminal case has not gone away, and if he doesn't deal with that, it will become an even bigger problem for him in his immigration proceedings.
He should consult an experienced immigration attorney immediately to discuss his immigration prospects. That attorney may be able to handle his criminal case or refer him to someone else who can.
Regardless, it is very important that whoever handles his criminal issue is aware of his immigration issue and discusses it with his immigration lawyer before taking any steps.See question

If you live near a USCIS Field Office, you may want to schedule an INFOpass appointment (www.uscis.gov) to physically go in to the office and ask about your case.See question
