A Fiance petition on your part to USCIS and a K-1 visa application by your Fiance once that I-129/F petition is approved by USCIS is the only way to go under the circumstances. Hire an experienced and reputable lawyer to put together an approvable petition on your behalf, otherwise stand no chance of any of this being approved anytime soon..See question
Hi my name is Mohammed. I filled for n400 citizenship. Accidentally forgot to check the part where it says have u ever been arrested but not convicted. My interview is on November i went to court house / Da Office and got my arrest details, w...
Don't panic. You will have ample chance to "correct/amend" your N-400 application during the interview. But make sure to do so prior to being placed under oath. Take with you the court certified final case disposition document to the interview. Make sure to discuss your case with an attorney before that, and if you are really smart, to take a reputable immigration lawyer with you to the interview. The Sacramento district office is not known for its "kindness" in N-400 (and other) interviews..See question
Hi, I'm working in the US with visa L1 but I'm going to return to my country for personal reasons. In this case my visa expire until 08/2017 and I need to know if I need to notify this to the USCIS or need to schedule an appointment for this or ju...
You do not need to "notify" any immigration authorities of your departure. The moment you embark on your flight back home, the airline will "electronically" notify the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) of your departure. The fact that you will not come back will speak for itself.. If departing on foot or by car through the Mexican border (I see you are in Texas), there will be no such "electronic transmission". You could thus stop by at the CBP "booth" and return your I-94 there.
This discussion is academic, since in all likelihood, as soon as you resign and quit your job, your current employer will send a notification to USCIS "withdrawing" your L-1 with them. They would be fools not to do so.See question
Which visa is for a foreigner to go help his American friend's small family business in the USA for about 1 year? Is there a visa for that?
No, there is no such specific visa for "helping" a friend's small family business. What you could perhaps do, if you are a citizen of a country which is signatory to the E-2 Investor visa Treaty with the USA, is consider purchasing at least 50% of that business (for at least some $80,000 or more, assuming it's worth at least that much), apply for the E-2 Investor visa, obtain it and legally work in "directing and developing" that family business" to its full potential, then sell back your share if you wish, and depart the USA. Nothing short of something like that has any chance of realistically allowing to remain and work to turn that business around into profit, am afraid.See question

I came into the U.S when I was 7 years old in 2005 or 2006 I believe. I'm already 18 and I got my Employment Authorization Card and valid passport. I have no criminal records and I'm planning to go to college.
Did you enter the US legally, with a passport and visa? On what basis do you think of applying for a "green card"? Marriage to US citizen? Employment? Self-Petition based on extraordinary ability?See question
i wonder if its possible to shift to a different state but without transferring my asylum application, i am already done with my interview.
You may move to another state in the aftermath of your asylum interview. Check with your attorney. We normally do not notify USCIS of your address change, until after the asylum office issued its decision on your case. In San Francisco's case (where I attended an asylum interview last Monday) my client was issued instructions to come back to the asylum office after 14 days to receive the decision in person. You better appear for that one.See question
I have been issued an f4 family based immigration visa. Is it ok for me to travel with that visa and go to germany. I have paid immigration fee and i am currently in the USA. I have not yet recieved my green card.
If you were admitted into the USA on your F4 family category "immigrant" visa - you are already deemed to be a Lawful US Permanent Resident, whether your actual plastic "green card" has been received in the mail or not.
Check your passport, upon admission into the US, the CBP at the airport must have already placed an I-551 "temporary green card" stamp in your passport. If still valid upon your return, you will be readmitted on that stamp without any problems or questions asked.See question
Family member owns a restaurant and is a U.S. citizen. Can his/her relative apply for H-1B Visa as sponsored and employed by family's member as a manager of the restaurant? Candidate is in the provision and support of family member who owns the re...
No, not as the "manager of the restaurant", since that one is not a "Speciality Occupation". In fact, hardly any "manager" position is deemed by USCIS to be a Speciality Occupation of H-1B caliber.See question

Once your father obtains a green card, he can petition for your "green card", as long as you remain single.See question
