My 15 year-old niece is coming from Russia to study in the US. I am a US citizen. What documents should she bring with her that will allow me to obtain guardianship over her while she is in the US? Her parents will not be travelling here. Do they ...
I strongly suggest that you have a Skype consultation with an attorney.
If you're hoping that, by obtaining guardianship, you can have her attend a public school for free ... think again, that plan will not work.
If she's coming on an F visa .... do NOT let her come in on a B visa ... she'll need proof that someone is paying the full-and-true-cost of the education, public or private ... usually more than $20,000 per year.
As for guardianship, if it is merely so that you can take her to the doctor, etc. Talk to a local family law attorney.
Again, do NOT let her enter the US as a tourist ... it is forbidden for a person on a B to attend school and it takes more than 4-6 months to get permission to 'change' from the B to an F. On the otherhand, if she applies for a student visa in Russia, she can get that in a week, or so ... prior to coming to the US.See question
I am on F1 VISA. Since my GPA was low, I got dismissed for 1 year. Do I need to leave US in 15 days ? Can I try getting admission in another university and have my F1 reinstated ?
I don't know where you heard the 15 day number. Technically you are out-of-status and must leave immediately.
With that said, you have 5 months to apply for re-instatement.See question
i recently applied for asylum and have gotten my letter which states that i may remain in the country pending the final decision made on my asylum status, my question is do i need to maintain my f1 status while a decision on my application is stil...
It is highly recommended that you stay in school, full-time.
If the asylum application is denied, you'll be allowed to remain on your F.
NOTE: Do NOT apply for an asylum-based-EAD ... talk to your DSO about student work permits.See question
I applied for a change of status from B1/B2 to F1, and it is in process for almost 4 months.So if i leave during this process,will I become illegal in their records?will i ever be able to return to the U.S. with a new visa?
It is never recommended to file for a COS from B to F ... CIS intentionally delays that process.
Yes, if you leave before a decision is rendered, you will be viewed as an 'overstay' ... But, you can apply for a new visa w/o having a 'bar' against you.See question
Hi, I am from India working on H1B visa, and my employer is beginning my green card process. If my PERM and I-140 is approved, it will be about 7-8 years waiting till I will need to file adjustment of status or I-485. Is that right? If it is the c...
Yes, the PERM and I-140 could impact on her F ... if she were to travel. But, the 5 year stamp will help.
Keep an eye on the PERM/I-140 process and change her to H-4, with an EAD as soon as possible ... it is much better than OPT.
NOTE: She should NOT pursue CPT ... save up the time for the OPT.See question
I am a U.S. permanent resident and my parents are currently visiting me here in the U.S. My mom is very passionate and interested in learning English so that she can have access to international certificate programs to advance in her career (couns...
Changing from B-2 to F-1 is VERY DIFFICULT.
She should apply for the F-1 at a US Consul overseas. UAE is quite popular.
Her age shouldn't be a big problem, as long as she can continue to work when she returns to Iran.
Will your father stay in Iran while she takes the ESL class?
Talk to an attorney via Skype to help her to get prepared.See question
Hi, I got my EB-2 green card 2 months ago. I'm working for a consulting company, and my contract with the current client will be terminated in 1 week. My employer tells me that there are no positions for me with another client in my area and th...
I'm surprised that you got a greencard being sponsored by a consulting job shop.
Yes, if they have no work for you locally, that does appear to be a good reason for quitting ... keep good records.See question

Yes, you should volunteer this info at the interview.
Yes, you should take a lawyer with you.See question
