In 2004 was sent to rehab through cps and family court. I did not have a drug conviction and do not have a felony. then in 2011 I went back to rehab but I admitted myself no court was involved. will that prevent me from getting my citizenship?
You should see an immigration lawyer. Even though you did not get a felony, whatever drug related activity you had could be important to look at. There is a lot you are not saying in this post.See question
I got my citizenship(mid 2016) via marrying US citizen however due to some personal issues that marriage didn't work out (last for 4.5 years)) and i got uncontested divorce recently. Now i like a girl in my home country and decided to get marry. A...
From what you describe, she may be subject to a 10 year bar to admission, which cant be waived until after the full 10 years passes. It may be worthwhile to show the records you have to an immigration attorney who can talk to you and her about options. Good luck.See question
Hello , I filed for Adjustment of status last year after getting married to my wife (US Citizen). I have been scheduled for interview next month (365) days after filing for AOS, and was curious regarding the documents my wife will need to prove sp...
You should update all of that for her. Your income can be counted only if it was lawful. Your assets dont count at all, unless they are jointly held with her. You should also gather relationship proof documents for this interview. Good luck.See question
My 3Yr Old Daughter's Father Juan Carlos Batista, is Being deported for a DUI . He Came To USA at 4 months. He has a job & just graduated my hood community college. He has no family in Mexico. He's leaving to Mexico @ 12.am tonight.
That is sad to hear. Normally, a person without very much criminal or deportation history would have a chance to ask to stay in the U.S. Maybe this person already had some hearings, or maybe he agreed to go "voluntarily?" Many people do that rather than wait in detention for hearings. I hope he had a chance to talk with an attorney before making his decision.See question
I'm a naturalized US citizen since 2014, but my kids now 16 years old are born in India. They're Green Card holders. The travel.state.gov website mentions the need to have a certificate of citizenship before applying for the US passport. I read so...
Yes, probably. Since you are a U.S. citizen, and your children are under 18 and have resident status proof, they are probably U.S. citizens. I agree with my colleague. THe certificate is not needed. SOme people get it, but you can apply for passports without it, so long as you can prove the other elements. Good luck.See question
I am a Mexican citizen living in Canada, my permanent residence application for Canada is in process at the moment and I have 2 daughters 8 and 6 years old living with me, they are Mexican as well. My boyfriend is a Swedish citizen living in Was...
If you marry, your boyfriend can sponsor you now, as a resident, and his petition will include your children... You have a lot of options. Or, you might have. Its not possible to tell all of the options from your description. It may be a good idea to keep going on your canadian status. You and he should consult with an immigration attorney to make a well informed decision.See question
What is the difference between form I-864 and form I-134? they are both affidavit of support but why are they called differently?
The I-134 is an older form which is not a binding contract. The government updated the sponsorship form years ago for permanent visa cases. Now those (permanent or immigrant visa cases) use the I-864.See question
Greetings, I'm in the process of vacating a misdemeanor conviction from my record, and have to travel in a few months. I need to renew my passport, but am wondering if I should wait to renew after the conviction is vacated so that my record app...
Some civil matters, like failure to pay child support, and recently failure to pay you federal income taxes, can block a person from getting a passport. There may be some crimes that do also. This is not really an immigration question. If you are talking about a U.S. passport, then I think you should post this q in the criminal section.See question
We plan on remarrying. I don't make enough money but she has her own. She once had a green card. We were divorced approx. 30 years ago
There is no visa avenue for an ex-spouse. If she never had any legal status in the U.S. before, she will likely have to start from scratch. You could remarry and petition for her. Much depends on your relationship and your plans. If you had any children who are now over 21, that may be a stronger case. There are other issues to explore also, such as financial sponsorship and any previous immigration problems. You should probably find an experienced immigration attorney and have a consultation to explore your options.See question
I got an appointment for biometrics in relation to my naturalization appointment, but I saw the mail too late by a day. Can I still ask them to reschedule my appointment? Or do I need to reapply for naturalization?
yes, you can. There are instructions on the notice. You can also call the 800# for customer service. You could also walk in to the office and ask if they can do your prints that day.See question
