I'm extending my Visa with the same sponsor.
The relevant regulation that says that a new peer evaluation is needed if the prior one is more than two years old. Look at 8 CFR 214.2(o)(5)(ii)(B): "(B) Waiver of consultation of certain aliens of extraordinary ability in the field of arts . Consultation for an alien of extraordinary ability in the field of arts shall be waived by the Director in those instances where the alien seeks readmission to the United States to perform similar services within 2 years of the date of a previous consultation. The director shall, within 5 days of granting the waiver, forward a copy of the petition and supporting documentation to the national office of an appropriate labor organization. Petitioners desiring to avail themselves of the waiver should submit a copy of the prior consultation with the petition and advise the Director of the waiver request."See question
I had DACA before I got my Dui but it recently expired and my DUI recently got dropped for reckless driving. I live in Illinois I am going to jail for 1 week in September since it got dropped to reckless driving can I get deported? I AM so lost id...
If your only conviction is reckless driving, and no other priors, it shouldn't be considered a significant misdemeanor. Also, note that an expunged conviction does not automatically disqualify an individual from DACA. But keep in mind that any criminal history can result in a discretionary denial. Thus, an expunged conviction is still subject to discretion.See question

My brother filed for an immigrant visa for me some years ago, and it seems to take forever to process...I heard it takes 10 years or even more for siblings filing for their siblings. I want to know if I can get a B1/b2 visa for the mean time while...
You can try. Document the case with as much as possible. If you have a more compelling reason to visit, then your chances may be better. In a professional consultation with an attorney, you may be provided with templates to document the application as well as possible.See question

You're covered by INA 245(k) which allows you to adjust as long as you didn't accrue 180 days of unauthorized employment. You should be fine since you only accrued 60 days.See question
I have applied for change of status (h4 to f1). USCIS received my application on 14th April, 2017. I just found out that my application is with Vermont Service Center and right now they are processing 9 January applications I am living in Califor...
You can attend classes on H4, and I would expect that the change to F1 should be approved by October as per current processing times (no promise, of course). I assume you want F1 to get OPT, so keep in mind you need 1 year of being on F1 to qualify for OPT. Your DSO can advise you further, but if you really want F1 as soon as possible, you could leave the US and apply for a visa. If you get a hard time at the consulate, then you'd be able to still return on H4.See question
I am a b1/b2 holder currently in the USA, I would like to get an ITIN but I don't know if I am entitled to one and how to go about that??
You should be able to, and even may incorporate a business. Many people enter on B1/B2, and setup businesses, and even file to change status to E-2 investor status, but obviously you can't be employed until you get authorized to work.See question
Hi There, I'm going to Jordan to make things official with the love of my life who lives in Jordan. Full disclosure here we are Christian if that matters today with HLS. Since I have no interest in living in Jordan since my business and both of...
Hi there... if you're engaged, note that there he may be questioned about whether he has a US Citizen fiance, and he would have to answer "yes." That could lead to a denial of the visitor visa. When you get engaged, you can file the fiance visa application, which will get processed in the US, not in Jordan. It will bring him to the US faster that if you marry him, and sponsor him for a green card, though there are some pros and cons in choosing the green card process over fiance visa application. Don't expect to be able to have him travel back with you unless he already has a visitor visa. He might consider applying now, before you're engaged. A professional consultation might help you understand the options and approaches better... have a safe trip to Jordan!See question

The costs vary, and you are free to contact attorneys directly. It's not something that an attorney would generally post on Avvo, but some firms (including my own at usavisalaw.com) post rates on their website.See question
