Regarding the USCIS processing time for the Vermont service center, as of Dec 31,2016 (the processing case "As of date") for the I-751 is listed as July 28, 2016. My case was received on April 26, 2016, which was earlier than the applications ...
Yours is one more example that "processing times" posted at the USCIS website are usually not accurate, as they do not, most of the time, comport with reality on the field. Add another 2 months to those and you'll feel better..
Your case might be taking longer, perhaps due to the fact that it has been "flagged" by the VSC as needing to be interviewed by your local USCIS district office and set aside as such - who knows? Schedule an INFOPASS with your local USCIS office to try to learn more.See question
I am a US citizen who would like to apply for a Canadian work visa. My husband and I both live in the US currently with our 3 year old daughter. My husband is a Mexican citizen and was brought over to the US illegally when he was 8 years old. I wo...
These are all good questions to be asked first of your nearest friendly Canadian consulate (just to have a general idea - and cruising their website, include of the Canadian embassy in D.C. will not harm either), as well as consulting with and hopefully hiring an experienced Canadian immigration lawyer to assist you in your plans. You can find one here: www.ailalawyer.com (specify the Canadian city of interest).
For a "work visa", you will need to find a qualified Canadian employer to sponsor you first, I suspect.See question
I am International Undergraduate Student been to United States for Bachelors degree in spring 2015 on F1 Visa . I finished my freshman year but unfortunately I came back to my home during start of sophomore (Spring 2016-Mar)because of family e...
No, you should encounter any problems being readmitted to the US on your new F-1 visa due to the problems you had before with your old school.
That was a civil matter (which has now been settled) and not criminal, thus, does not affect your admission eligibility to the USA in any way, shape or form.
Just to make yourself feel better, carry the documentary proof of your having settled the school's & the collection agency's claims and having now a "zero balance" outstanding. But do not show or mention this unless specifically asked. (You will not be).See question
I Came to US with B visa. I accepted a research position offer and received the documents. Should I apply for change of status or leave the country and get a J1 visa?
While you could apply for COS in the USA to J-1, bear in mind that many things could go wrong and USCIS, which will take up to 5 months to process your COS could ultimately deny your application. That is why, in principle, it is always preferable to go back to your home country and apply for a J-1 visa at the US consulate there.See question
My mom applied for asylum when I was 14 years old and didn't show up to the hearing so the judge issued a deportation order for our family I wasn't aware of this until a few weeks ago. In 1998 I got married and was able to adjust my status, I'm no...
Now that you are a US citizen, I wouldn't worry about it too much - while at the same time seek to clarify and take care of this ASAP. Seek to consult with an experienced immigration attorney in private.See question

You can start by contacting the Canadian consulate in Seattle about the requirements for obtaining Canadian citizenship and also seek to consult with a Canadian lawyer on the matter. You can find one at
I am software Engineer current working in H1B visa status, and I have a pending 485 with valid EAD but not in use. I am interested to buy a restaurant as I heard it is possible to own a business with H1B as long as I don't get paid as a employee ...
Yes, that is "true".
You will need to hire a manager to run the everyday affairs of the business and he/she will have to hire others to operate the restaurant.See question
We have been waiting for an organization that offers pro-bono services for four months and the process is taking ages to meet the assigned attorney and my mother visa is expiring in a month from now. My question is if we can submit the I-589 first...
Yes, you can submit a "skeletal" asylum application ASAP, to be received by the asylum office prior to mother falling out of status and supplement the I-589 later, if planned and executed properly.
Note that the overwhelming number of asylum applications filed without an experienced lawyer are denied.
I am sorry to note but since an asylum application is a case where an experienced lawyer has got to invest at least 30-50 hours of his/her time to prepare an approvable application, the probability of your being able to have that properly prepared by a "pro bono" or low bono attorney for free or almost for free is not realistic.
While I was in L-1 status working for X, Y filed H-1B with consular processing for me, it got selected in lottery, and also got approved (according to case status on USCIS website as per the receipt number communicated to me by Y). Now that Y ...
The new employer's immigration lawyer, upon filing that new employer's H-1B petition on your behalf could try to claim you are exempt from the numerical cap on H-1Bs by virtue of your having already been counted against the cap and received an H-1B visa approval.
That may or may not work, since you have not "activated" that H-1B approval by subsequently applying for an H-1B visa stamp at your home country US consulate and having "activated" that H-1B visa by having come to the US and actually "worked" for that employer. That employer could have in the meantime "withdrawn" the H-1B it had previously approved on your behalf, with USCIS then "revoked" that visa number reserved for you and returned it to the "pool" of still available H-1B visas, to be used by others.
That is "true", since an H-1B is the employer's petition and not the beneficiary's.See question
