No. Why wouldn't you go meet with an attorney first? If you have any type of injury from the accident, almost all attorneys who handle those type of cases will not charge you anything to sit down and discuss the case with you in an initial consultation. It would be a very bad idea to accept the deal without discussing with an attorney first.See question
Good evening, I have recently spontaneously married my spouse and am about to fill out the I-485. However, in the instructions, it is mentioned that the address has to be in the US. I am currently staying at her family's home. Do I need to get ...
It is not 100% clear what you are asking. You should definitely be living together and be able to state that you have the same address. More importantly, are you aware that in addition to the I-485 you must also file several other documents, including the I-130, I-864, G-325A, I-765, etc., along with other supporting documentation? Please don't make the big mistake that many people do and try this on your own without first consulting a respected immigration attorney. So many people lose lots of time and money by doing it wrong on their own, and some even get the case denied, followed by the possibility of becoming involved in the deportation process.See question

I married a US Citizen on May this year at that time I was on an F1 student visa. Yesterday I received my receipts on the mail. Someone said that I can stop studying as soon as i got receipts. I did not plan to take classes this semester. My inte...
I agree with my colleagues. By applying for a Green Card, you technically have given up your F1 status anyway. But it's not really a big deal because it is not required for you to remain on legal status in order to get permanent residency through marriage to a U.S. citizen. And, of course, with the Green Card, you are able to continue studying.See question
He has recently been deported to Mexico City, Mexico. We have been married 2 years next month. I'm native American enrolled in a legally recognized tribe. If I am able to bring him back how would I do that?
This is a question that is much, much, much too complicated for just a simple question and answer format like this. There are undoubtedly numerous facts and details that must be discussed to truly be able to analyze his case and whether anything can be done. Generally a deportation is rather difficult to overcome, but there may be some exceptions. Please do yourself a favor and find a reputable attorney to speak with in person.See question
Let's say Joe Blough was involved in an accident where the other driver was clearly at fault. Insurance accepted full liability, and Joe was paralized from the neck down. Joe was awarded 5 million in damages to include pain and suffering, a large ...
No. First, it is important to know exactly what you mean when you say "awarded". Do you mean awarded by a jury, or that the insurance company agrees to pay him that amount as a settlement. If it is a jury, the amount awarded would be based on evidence presented at trial including several factors to be considered, including current medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and opportunities, future care, etc. If the jury decides to award $5 million, it is based upon what is know at that time, and that amount will not be affected by what happens in the future. Likewise, a settlement is an agreement reached when both parties have analyzed all of the facts and potential risk involved in not settling (i.e., going to trial), and then reach some sort of agreement on a dollar amount. A settlement usually involves neither side getting everything they want, hence the "compromise" aspect of the settlement. If an insurance company agrees to pay $5 million, then that is because it is scared that if they go to trial, they could have to pay much, much more, so they are willing to pay now to avoid that risk. Part of analyzing that risk includes the calculation that the future care could only be $100,000, for example, or could be $20 million. The injured party does the same by taking a risk that if it is $20 million, for example, he/she might run out of money for future care, but they are willing to take that risk now to avoid going to trial and either losing or getting a lower amount. I hope that makes sense.See question
my boyfriend lives in morocco wants to visit how do I sponsor him? what paperwork do I need? I am the united states of America how do I get documents?
I agree with Mr. Capriotti: someone inside the U.S. does not petition for someone outside the U.S. to come to the U.S. on a visitor's visa. When someone comes on a visitor's visa, he is petitioning for himself on his own. The fact that he has a girlfriend inside the U.S. is actually a negative factor that could make it difficult for him to get the visitor's visa because U.S. immigration agents will not trust that he will want to leave once he gets here. The primary determination of whether or not to grant him a visitor's visa will be whether the immigration officer believes that he truly has the intention of returning to his country. He will need to provide evidence of his ties to Morocco and convince them that he will return once he comes to the U.S. If he decides to proceed with the application for the visitor's visa, he will need to fill out the application on the U.S. State Department website. Here it is: https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/visit/visitor.html
How many months can I expect to wait?
After the waiver is approved, you and/or your attorney (if you have one) should receive a letter from the National Visa Center with instructions on what to do next, which usually includes submitting an online visa application (DS-260), and then sending in some financial and other identifying documents. After those are submitted, the visa appointment will be schedule. Nothing will happen unless you take these steps after the waiver is approved.See question
I received my receipt October 2015 and went for biometrics Dec 2015. In April I called and sent a letter and their response was everything is still in progress. Is this a normal wait time or is my case taking too long for some bad reason?
10 months is a pretty long time for an I-601A waiver. I believe around 5-6 months is normal. However, it does happen that some take longer. You can continue to request status updates, but unfortunately there is very little that can be done to force them to issue a decision.See question

Like you, I am from Oklahoma and now live in Colorado, and love it.
Unfortunately, you cannot transfer a criminal case from one state to the next. You will have to resolve the case in Oklahoma in one way or another. If you are placed on probation, you can often request that probation be transferred out of state to finish your requirements here. But you will have to get a resolution in Oklahoma before doing that. Good luck.
