Unfortunately there isn't much of anything you can do under current law.
Do you qualify for DACA? Could try to apply for DACA, then once approved (If DACA is still available under the new presidential administration), travel briefly out, return and once marry a US citizen will be able to apply for "green card" in the USA without having to depart and apply for hardship "waiver'.
(Also ask mom exactly "how" you were brought into the country - was it as a passenger in a vehicle?)See question
I came from iraq 2 years ago as refugee, due to personal security and safety, only my mom is left in Iraq. Now she is very sick and wants us to go there, if we go there is hug risk of us being killed. USCIS website says i can only apply for my ...
Mom can try to apply for "humanitarian" parole, but unfortunately that sort of application is hardly ever approved. Sorry.See question
under tps status
Yes. Once issued an Advance Parole travel document/permit, you can travel to any country in the world you desire. (An AP is never issued for one to "just" travel to his/her home country - has no such limit, and frankly, no one at USCIS or CBP could care less where you ultimately travel.)See question
My H1B visa was issued from 2006 to September 2009 . I worked in the US in 2007 for only 9 months . The same employer now wants me to come back to the US . They said I could reclaim the 2 years or so that I did not use, but I'm not sure if this...
I do not think you are any longer eligible to "recapture" any (meaningful) time spent outside the US during your H-1B tenure, since it has now been more than 6 years, more than 10 years in fact since you were first admitted into H-1B status. Can only seek to recapture time during the maximum 6 years allowable for H-1B status.
The "same" or other employer now wishing to file an H-1B petition on your behalf come April 1st will need to submit a "cap subject" petition and hope that petition is ultimately selected in the upcoming "lottery" for H-1Bs and subsequently approved.See question
I am 20 year old, and currently on H1B visa. I married to a US citizen 1 years ago. We start having problem three month after we got married. We applied green card once, the whole process just about to start(only took finger print), but at May 201...
First of all, I don't think you can obtain an "annulment", as opposed to a conventional divorce based on the facts you cited. Having done quite a few myself on clients' behalf, I do not think any family court judge will agree to an "annulment". Speak with a family law attorney to understand what the requirements/conditions for annulment are.
I don't see how this divorce could affect either your current immigration status nor a future employment-based or even marriage-based "green card application".See question
I married my fiancé only after 40 days of being in USA on visit visa. Does this look bad on my end? I had not planned this nor could we have the extravagant wedding we wanted. My dad who is in USA is severely ill & my intention was to visit him on...
Yes, unfortunately there is a legal presumption that one will need to overcome, if subject to it.
Closely work with your attorney and do not apply for "green card" prior to your attorney agreeing to do it.See question
i send my application form i 589 since 55 days and i have not received any notice yet so, is it possible to be denied by the office? and will they inform me with that or not? can i refile a new application or not?
Yes, that could be possible that your application will be rejected for whatever deficiencies.
Yes, you can try to file a new application.
Best of luck!See question
My current J1 visa expires this year on March 06 plus a grace period until April 6. I'm not subject to the 212 E rule on my visa and DS 2019. My employer is currently processing the papers and will file the petition by April 1 this year. Since ...
The fact that your employer will filing an H-1B petition on your behalf come April 1st, with an employment start date of October 1st will not give you the legal right to remain in the US in the interim period.
Also, You don't even know if that petition will be "selected" during the expected H-1B lottery for further processing or not.
Thus, you will need to timely apply for an F-1 .See question
We live in California and are originally from the Netherlands. My husband did an intracompany transfer and received an L-1 visa and I got an L-2 visa. I'm currently applying for a position which would give me an A-2 visa. What will the consequence...
You can go ahead and file an application to change your status from L2 to A-2. Your spouse's L-1A status will remain unaffected.See question
I'm changing my visa status from J-1 to B-1
You do not have an "A" number assigned to you by USCIS - not when on either J-1 or B-1 visa.
An "A" (Alien) number is only assigned by USCIS to those foreign nationals who have either applied for "green card" status and/or have been detained and placed in deportation proceedings. Not you at all.
Thus, if filing a form that asks for your "A" number, answer with a "None" or "N/A" and move on.See question
