Yeah, I sympathize with you on the EB-2 dates for India. However, this particular format of having complex (and expensive) legal issues online for free is a very unsound way to proceed in this particular case. I agree with my colleagues and suggest you get off the internet and into a competent and experienced attorney's office.See question
I'm 40 and entered USA legally 8 years ago but permit is expired, Visa is current. I have worked under another name and fake SS, paid taxes. If I marry a USA citizen, can I legalize my status and do I have to leave the country? If so, how long w...
Bonafide marriage? probably yes without leaving the country. It is taking around 3-4 months to get your green card. You may get a work permit before that. Talk to a good immigration lawyer for details.See question
I been a permanent resident for over 30 years I went to a horrible divorce and that's how I got the domestic violance charge . Thank you
Charge or conviction? A conviction could get you put into removal proceedings in Nevada. If it is just a charge, you better get a good criminal attorney and get a lesser offense.See question
what can i do? is there a ground to sue him for the pain and suffering and the shame i am experiencing now
As a law professor told me way back in school, "you can always sue anybody... question is can you win and will it be worth it?" So you may be able to sue him on a contract theory, and show what you gave up to come to the U.S. in reliance on his promise to get married. Unless your losses are extreme, like you left your job as Nicaragua's top t.v. anchorwoman or left medical school with a semester to go, I don't really see an adequate damages possibility. Also, I'm thinking a judge/jury would say that you assumed the risk because not all engagements or even marriages work out. But my colleagues are all correct in that under the terms of the fiancee visa, you will have to leave if you don't marry the petitioning fiance. Sorry.See question
Legal Advice on my wife has a stepsister who is illegal and she is 18. Her father is also illegal but married to my wife's mother. He has some kind of paralegal who is filing papers for my wifes stepsister and she is telling there is a law that sh...
I'm agreeing with the paralegal that the marriage needed to have taken place before the step daughter turns 18 and there does not need to be an adoption. That is assuming that the step mother is a US citizen and that they either entered the US with a visa, or are eligible for Sec. 245(i). (Google it). But the difference in the opinions expressed by the attorneys underscores how complex immigration law is, and why you may need a more thorough consultation with an experienced attorney than you can get free on the Internet. Good luck.See question

Assuming that you and you husband are still "living in marital union", you can apply 2 years and 9months from the date you got your permanent residence. The other lawyers are correct in that immigration will not approve your citizenship until the conditional residence application is approved. Good luck!See question

Looks like it. Congratulations!!! Keep in mind that this is not a permanent status, and much more advocacy work is going to be needed. But it looks like the program will work for you. For now, be careful about notaries and unethical attorneys who are already advertising in Las Vegas. I even heard about a lawyer who is giving away tickets to a big soccer match and promising that he can put people at the head of the line. This is a scam. There are no guidelines yet about what the application process will look like. But the process does have certain requirements and there could be possible unintended traps. You would be wise to have an attorney help you when the program is fully implemented. Feel free to contact me via AVVO for any further questions.See question
And what are the requirements in imigration
Section 245(i) refers to a section in the Immigration and nationality act which allowed certain people to stay in the U.S. to process their green cards instead of having to go back to their home country. It basically said that if you have a way to get a green card but for the fact that you don't have status, or entered illegally, then pay $1,000 to the U.S. government and all your immigration sins will be forgiven and you can proceed to getting your green card. The last day an application could be filed to take advantage of this law was April 30, 2001. It still helps people who were beneficiaries of applications (I-130 or I-140 or Labor Certification) including any derivative beneficiaries filed on or before that date. There is more to it than that, but that's an overview. To see how or if this law applies to your specific case, you should talk to an experienced immigration attorney.See question
Would that be a ploblem ?
Hard to say based on the little information you provided. It may depend on how you entered the U.S., whether or not you can get a joint sponsor (because you husband doesn't appear to make enough money to satisfy the support requirement). Whether you have other possible inadmissibility issues like criminal offenses or immigration violations, what your husbands status in the U.S. is (citizen or permanent resident). In other words, make an appointment with a reputable attorney and discuss these things. It's not a simple yes or no question.See question
