  • Can a permanent resident work for a US company but stay abroad on deputation. Will this make him lose the GC.

    I am a permanent resident working for a US company but they want me to work on deputation in Dubai for an extended period of time. Is it ok for me to do this? since I will be paying taxes in the US or will this cause me to lose my GC?

    Get a re-entry permit before you leave. You might want to file the paperwork to keep naturalization open as well. Consult an attorney.

    You need an immigration attorney. A two year prison sentence sounds like a serious crime and there may be a bar to his admission into the US.

    You need to hire an immigration attorney ASAP. If you can't afford one, look into a non-profit like Catholic Charities or the State Bar might suggest a good non-profit willing to help.

  • I recieved my green card on 26 nov 2013 and my Ead and AP were on intial review.

    I recieved my green card on 26 nov 2013. MY EAD and AP were still on initial review. But today I got an email from USCIS that my ead and AP decision have been denied. I know I don't need EAD and AP card now. But does it matters as I have a green c...

    Jay’s Answer

    I would imagine they were denied because you have the green card and the I-485 is no longer pending. That's my guess.

    Jay’s Answer

    Your husband remains a permanent resident until an immigration court determines otherwise, so don't be too confident that the I-864 obligations have terminated.

    Jay’s Answer

    Have you filed for adjustment of status? I think you should consult with an immigration attorney in person before proceeding. This isn't really the right forum to answer this type of question.

    Jay’s Answer

    If you filed in early September, a three month wait is not unusual. If you haven't received an interview notice by mid-January, follow up with USCIS again.

  • RFE Response for COS to F1

    What if I and my lawyer both replies for RFE ? USCIS considers both ?

    Jay’s Answer

    I'm sure USCIS will, but you need to coordinate with your attorney on the response. Don't send two separate responses. Either get a new attorney or listen to your counsel's counsel.
