What are your suggestion for filing I-140 Premium Processing. is it better to do the normal process or do the premium processing? How do USCIS handle premium processing?
This is like: which is better boxers or briefs? Filing PP will get you a faster answer, but it goes to the Nebraska Service Center, which I find to be more strict that Texas, which is where it will go if you file it normal process. Also, if you are concurrently filing it with an I-485 and are in no need of an answer quickly, but might like work authorization while the case is pending, then don't file PP (but you risk losing the filing fee for the I-485 if the I-140 gets denied). Just a preference depending on the facts.See question

Thanks Tom Esparza for the recommendation. You are legally obligated for her until either 10 years have passed, or she becomes a citizen, or she returns to her home country. Normally, however, sponsors rarely have to pay any money back to anyone. But it would probably be a good idea to get some details on the case and give you a better opinion. Please contact my office if you want to discuss it further.See question
Its been 3 years since i applied for citizenship and till now they say background check
There could be a lot of reasons. Without more information it would impossible to answer, but even with more information it might only be a guess. For example, if you come from a part of the world where there are many potential terrorists named Mohammed, and your name is Mohammed, they may be doing a detailed security check. There may be issues with how you got your permanent residence, or maybe a criminal hit from your fingerprints. Or maybe they just lost your file. Three years is more than enough time for them to do a background check, and you may need to put some pressure on them. A lawyer can help you do that.See question

This is not really an immigration question. But here goes: you can file for default proceedings against him and serve him by publication. It's pretty complicated and you should either find a family law specialist or go to the self help counter at the family court on Pecos and Bonanza. They can help you.See question
Back in the 90s, I entered the U.S. with a tourist visa, but under a different name (my photo but different identity). I no longer have that passport and visa, nor do I have copies of it. Same w/ the I-94. I have been married now to a US citizen, ...
"Different identity"??? Did you use a fraudulent document? Or did you change your name after? It would make a big difference. But you should seriously consider retaining counsel if you used a fake document. This could get really complicated.See question
He was ordered deported in 1995 for aggravated felony. He was 18. This happened in Texas. He Came to the US when he was 4 as a refugee. He has been on supervision for over 20+ years. He's always worked, recently received EAD in order to renew driv...
Short answer: YES. He could still be deported. However, you should probably get with an experienced immigration lawyer who can assess the details of his case to see if there is any possible relief. There are many factors that don't appear in your brief factual presentation. His deportation order was prior to IMMACT, so he may be eligible for relief under 212(c). But does not sound like an easy case. Good luck.See question

How did you get your green card and were you married to your wife at the time your I-140 got approved (it you got it through your employment). If you were, you can file the adjustment for her as a derivative beneficiary of your visa petition, although you may have issues of preconceived intent. Best to discuss with a KNOWLEDGEABLE attorney.See question

It appears from the way you pose your question that you have a place, other than the United States, where you can go and feel safe and perhaps more importantly, make some money. So why don't you just do that so people who really do have no place else to go can come here and find the sanctuary that they are seeking, since that is the purpose of asylum. Frankly your question offends me.See question
