How do I know if i130 was approved and do I have to file I485
Firstly, congrats on getting your case terminated. To continue with your petition, I suggest you consult with an immigration attorney. To give you a complete and correct answer to your questions much more information is required. You will find out if your I-130 was approved by mail. You may also go to the website www.uscis.gov to check the status of your petition. Best of luck.See question
My fiancée (and father of my child) has an upcoming court date early this week. He plead guilty to driving without a license and completed his community service and the court waived his fees. He is due in court early this week and I am extremely ...
There are a couple of issues here. One is the criminal case: you can discuss the reasons he has another hearing before the Judge regarding the DUI conviction. It may be that he has to show the Judge that he has completed the court's order. The second issue is the immigration issue. He can be placed into removal proceedings for not having lawful status at any time. When people are arrested there is a greater likelihood that they will be transferred to immigration custody and placed into proceedings. Criminal convictions can affect the person's immigration options. I suggest you consult with an immigration attorney, possibly a criminal defense attorney as well.See question
I married a US citizen and went through abuse. My residency expires in a couple of months and I filed for vawa I360. I was told that this was the way to go and so I did it. But now I am being told that my vawa wont get approved because I still hav...
This is very interesting. It may be that you received the wrong advice to file the I-360. It would be best to consult with an attorney to assess your case and tell you the best way to go about your case. If a person is a conditional permanent resident and there is abuse in the the marriage, they may be able to remove the conditions on the residency (and get a new green card without conditions). Usually one need the US Citizen spouse to jointly file the petition to remove conditions, but there is an exception for those that experience abuse. I suggest you consult with an attorney about your case.See question
do i need any forms? other than passports. do i need permission in writing from boys mother?
Yes. A notarized letter giving permission to one parent to take the children out of the country will likely be needed. A copy of the birth certificate, with the parent's name would be a good idea as well.See question
I passed on October 2, 2013 and was told that I would be sworn in around November. It's mid December but I've heard nothing.
The government shutdown may have delayed the wait period to be a bit longer than usual. However, a couple of weeks of delay should not be a cause for concern anyway.See question
My lawyer is about to file my green card and so my kids , through t visa. But my boyfriend , a us citizen wanted us to get married soon so he can add us in his health insurance. Would it affect my application , I am not going to change my surname ...
I agree with my colleagues. Since your attorney should know all of the facts of your case, she will be able to tell you with more certainty. However, if you are the principal applicant, your marital status will not affect your adjustment application. Also important to note, T visa holders are able to add their spouse as a derivative to their application. If your spouse does not have lawful status you will want to discuss your options with your attorney.See question
I am trying to terminate my ex-husbands parental rights and need to know if he is even here legally. He overstayed a visa when he was a child. He crossed into MX and tried to crossing back but was caught as an adult. After he signed his voluntary ...
Due to confidentiality concerns it would be practically impossible to find out about someone else's immigration case. Also, offering evidence or accusations of a parent's lack of immigration status, although sometimes done, is a controversial issue.See question
i am getting married to my U.S. fiance. Im in the US on a student visa. should she change her name to my last name before we start the green card process?
I agree with my colleagues. A name change is a completely personal matter and should not affect your immigration case. You will have to show your relationship is "bonafide" or real and not for immigration purposes. You will need to do this through other evidence.See question
I have received citizenship years ago through my parents. I was under age at that time. I have a US passport. What is my Certificate of Citizenship #? My parent's have certificates of naturalization but nothing for me. I am filling out a I-134...
I agree with my colleagues. It sounds like you derived your citizenship through your parents and so did not get a naturalization certificate.See question
your I90, APPLICATION TO REPLACE ALIEN REGISTRATION CARD was terminated because you acquired status or the benefit being sought through other means. No further action will be taken on this case what does this mean
There is not sufficient information to answer your question. I also suggest that you consult with an attorney to assess your case. Your petition may have been denied due to a procedural mistake or there may have been something in your case that threatened your eligibility for a new card. It is also important to note that any possible appeal has time limits, so speaking with an attorney as soon as possible is important. Best of luck!See question
