Ques

I'm a Permanent Resident who's just filed the Naturaliziation Application before the fees go up next month. My husband overstayed his Tourist Visa when he came 5 yrs. ago and we were married. I'm waiting to become a Citizen to then file for him. My question is: are there any applications that I can file for him at this moment that would save me any money or make any difference before the fees go up or before I become a Citizen?

Thanks.

Ans:

You could file an I-130 petition however this application will take a long time to adjudicate. The filing fees are now $190.00 until July 29, 2007. The altenative is to wait until you become a citizen at that time you can fille all te forms at the same time

Green Card
Ques:

I've been married to my husband (both of us from UK) for 18 years and we have just received our green card. I want to divorce him. Will this affect my green card. The IV category is E34. I see on the bottom of out temporary 1 year one in the passport that it says Annotation: Valid only if Acc/FTJ Spouse. I presume that means we would only be accepted as a permanent resident upon my husband having a full time job here. This is my concern, is my green card now based upon staying with him because of his employment?

Ans: I need to determine whether or not your husband was the principal in this petition. In other words was he the one being sponsored and are you just a beneficiary. If that is the case then if he has not yet received the pemanent resident card you would not receive it either if there is a divorce. Once he informs the USCIS there is a divorce you would b severed from th petition.

Ans: Your marriage is not legal. You will need to apply for an annullment as soon as possible. If this man was already married to someone else when you had the ceremony you cannot be legally married to him. You should take care of this right away.

Re-File For Mom with Kids
Question
I am a US citizen and i filed for my mom who is still in Jamaica. She also have a little boy and teenage daughter down there. On the application it lists her as the beneficiary and lists her kids as well. She is schedule for an interview later this month but now i am concerned that my little brother and sister will not get thru. She only received one medical sheet for her interview. Can someone please let me know if they will send her thru and leave my little brother and sister in Jamaica? If she does have to leave the kids, how soon can she file for



Answer- You cannot file for your mom, brother and sister in the same petition.The Immigration catergories are different. You will not receive a medical or interview date for your siblings. A petition filed by you for your sister or brother takes more than ten years now. It is better for you mom to file for them after she arrives in the US. When she becomes a citizen in five years she can speed up the process by sending the Immigration Service her citizenship Certificate. This also depends on the ages of your brother and sister. If they are younger than 21 the process is a lot faster.

will i be deported?
i am a F-1 student who is being charged by misdemeanor B theft $50-$500. i hope my case could be dismissed. however, if not, accepting deferred adjudication or probation will make me deported, right? i want to know if there is any plea bargain options that will not make me deportable? or shoplifting/theft offense is regarded as aggravated felonies and no matter what i have to be deported? i am stressed. please let me know.

HI Mr Chung

When my mother filed for my brother back in 97 he put his son's name on his papers. I think they told him he would bring his child with him to the United States but he didnt because he didnt have a job or place as yet. Now the question is there a way we could go to the US Embassy in Jamaica and try and get some paperwork for my nephew saying he can come to the US since is name was already on his Father's paperwork when he came over here?
By Sacha @ USA
Answer:
Sacha, girl! you look so good in that video with that boy, Sean something. By the way your friend Turbu, what is wrong with that boy. Anyway, where is your brother and is he a citizen? How old is your nephew. These are facts I need to answer the question. If your brother is a citizen, have him file for his son. I am not sure you can go back and bring him based on the old petition. I'll find out and let you know. Seriously.

Good Luck

Tell them or not
Hello Mr. Chung,

I am trying to get a visitor's visa to the US to see my boyfriend, who is a US citizen. I need to have an interview before they issue me the visa. Is it okay for me to tell them that I am visiting my boyfriend or is that a reason for them to deny me the visa. I have no intents of staying in the States more than a month, since I'm a medical student here at home. I just wanted to visit for the summer.

What is the best course of action during this interview?

Do I have to tell The INS about my conviction and expungement

Question
Hi,
I have been arrested for shoplifting case in 2004 and eventually the case was dismissed and the arrest record was also expunged in 2005. Now I got my I140 approved. It is time for filing my 485. Do I need to say "YES" for arrest. I have all the copies of court record. But I could not disclose it to my employer. Please help
By chanty @ USA, NJ

Answer:
First, congratulations on your approval. But this is a very good question. Whenever someone says how good your question is, it usually means they do not know the answer. We know that you can say no on all kinds of applications to the question of being convicted and after expungment. However, the INS is saying no, not on INS documents. Applicants have objected and we are awaiting the Courts to tell us what to do. In the meantime either option seems correct. I could tell you what to do. But I do not want anyone one named Chanty looking for me.

Visa Waiver program and Marriage
Question:
My fiance is a German citizen here in the US on the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) We are planing to get married and I was just wondering what kind of documentation and identification she would need to be able to do this in Pennsylvania legaly and if there could be any other problems we might encounter.... Thank you for your time and consideration.
By Mike @ U.S. Pennsylvania

Answer:

I take it you are a US citizen, Mike. I do not foresee any problems. A passport and birth certificate is all she needs. You will need a birth certificate or other proof of US citizenship.Visit the website uscis.gov look for forms I-130, I-485, I-765. Some of the process can get complicated.

A priest as a greencard petitioner

Question
Can a priest in another country file for my greencard since he has known me a long time
By devan @ england

Answer
Priests enjoy no special privileges in the US immigration mix and may not apply for you. Of course, if you are an immediate relative to the priest then he may apply for you. Also if you are a religious worker, the church may apply for you.

Is it legal to work on a student visa

Question:
i am student in the U.S.A with a student visa and i was wondering if it is legal to work off campus when you are attending a University?
By dee @ U.S.A ...fl

Answer:
Dee.. Yes, it is illegal to work while on a student. However, you may work if work experience is required to graduate. Doctors, for example are allowed to work as part of their course of study. Additinally some students may apply for a special hardship waiver if finding it hard to sustain themselves and family.

By michelle @ new york

I appreciate all your questions but you need to call the agencies that issue these documents and ask them these questions. The question on the birth certificate is best addressed by City Hall or hospital where your child is born. Again, you can obtain a passport for your child in your home country from the US embassy. Call the Deprtment of State or ask the local passport office about the length of time the application takes.

Out of status student can I adjust?
Question:
I came to the US on a F1 student visa. My visa expired in 2005 and my OPT has expired in 2006.I have been out of status for about almost a year. I am married to a US citizen and we also have children together. I now want to file and have my status adjusted. Does the law look at my situation differently than someone else who has not been out of status? Are they any other forms that I would need to file other than I-130, I-765, 1-485, I-864 and G-325? Does this situation warrant an attorney? Thanks in advance.

Can I, if possible try to get them visitor visas until i become a citizen
Question
I am a us permanent resident who just got married in my home country guyana. I hardly get to visit my wife and daughter because of school and work so its really tough. Can I, if possible try to get them visitor visas until i become a citizen in 2009, then apply for the permanent ones.I know that is i do the permanent visa application now it will take a while to process.What is my best option?
By Kwame @ USA, Rochester, NY

Answer:

You can attempt to get a visitor's visa, if they are successful, be careful not to overstay. Under the Family Unity Act a K/Y visa may be available for your spouse that allows her to work only. But you would need to file the petition now and this visa may be available in 3 years. The alternative is to wait until 2009 and your citizenship.

whats the best process to take??????
hi Mr Chung, my boyfriend is a US Citizen and i am from the caribbean. we have been in a relationship for about 4 yrs now and i do have a visitors visa so we are constantly travelling, whether i go come to NY for a few months or he comes to see me for a week or 2 every other month. its becoming a bit too expensive but at the same time we cant really complain as its worth it, we still get to spend quality time together. we are now planning to get married and start a family, eventually i want to reside with him here in the US, how should we go about all this? what would be easier, should we get married here in the US or in my country? and then after we're married what should we do or what forms should he go about filing? awaiting ur advice, we need to be together as we have so much plans for our future and it hurts being away from each other. thanks for ur time.

How does one enter the US.
Answer:
Here are some of the the available ways of entering the US. There are 2 types of visas for entry into the US: immigrant visas and non-immigrant visas. A non-immigrant visa is one where the applicant plans to return home, for example a visitor visa or student visa. In one instance you may return after a vacation and, the latter, after a period of study in the US. The INS website list many different types of visas. An immigrant visa is the, so called, permanent visa where the applicant intends to remain in the US. Some non- immigrant visas may be converted to immigrant visas by marriage to a citizen or the petition of your employer. A student visa requires you apply to the school and the school then forwards the necessary documents for you to file your application at the local embassy/consulate. In addition ,If you are qualified with certain specialty skills or hard to staff skill areas, an employer may file a petition for you to work. For example, you trained as a chef specializing in Caribbean cuisine, a restaurant in the US may file a petition for you to work in the US. They will have to make a case that specialty Caribbean chefs are hard to find. Visitors usually require a letter of invitation from someone in the US. Most visas require some initiative from a person or institution here in the US.

How long beore a deportee can re enter the US
Question
How long can a person reapply for a Visa once they have been removed from the uk...Many thanks in advance
By jane smith @ england

Answer
Its dependes on the reason for your removal. For example, if you overstay for less than 1 year, you need to wait 3 years before applying for a visa and 10 years if you overstayed longer. But you need to sit down with a professional on your individual facts.

What is the difference Removal / Deportation
Question:
Could you please explain to me, what is the differance between Removal and Deportation. How long can a person reapply for a Visa once they have been removed from the uk...Many thanks in advance
By jane smith @ england

Answe:r
Theres is no difference between the 2 words deportation and removal Except the law does not use deportation anymore. Prior to the Patriot Act you could be deported for a number of reasons including being convicted of a crime and overstaying. The new law, the Patriot Act, uses removal instead of deportation and added a few more reasons for your removal. I hope this helps.

Re: Living in the US
Im a jamaican living in jamaica.Im u a graduate of the University of Technology Jamaica.I did Appraisal and property management. I have famaily living i New York and i heard the only way to get to the US is to get married to a citizen. I heard about this program that they have where university students in the caribbean are able to work in the US for 18 months at a cost of about 2000 US dollars. im planning on going this avenue but im not sure there are other route i can choose. I also heard that with this program,u can only work in the field that u studied,but i dont know any property management firms in the US becuz they have to employ u before they consider u for the program.Please advise me as the opprotunities for jobs in jamaica is very slim.Ive graduted from university for almost 3 years and i am still not working

By ange @ pennsylvania

Your immigration status does not matter. If you were hurt because of another driver's negligence, you are eligible for damages. You need to speak with an attorney in the state where the accident occurred.

Good Luck

By michelle @ new york

Dear Worried and depressed:
Your baby needs a healthy mother so stay strong. You can get an expedited passport in days. It costs a little more. Or, you can get a 'travel document' and file for the passport at the embassy in Kingston.

What is the basis to reopen terminated removal proceedings
Question
is is possible for the immigration court to reopen removal proceedings after it has been terminated by an immigration judge? in what reasons?
By cludinemica @ pi

Answer
You would need to provide new information not available at the time of the removal hearing, or present a change in the law. For example, recently the Supreme Court changed the definition of an aggravated felony. Many people have been deported/removed for aggravated felonies. Those people may have an opportunity to reopen their cases. See a qualified professional.
Good Luck

A Friend In Jamaica
I am a US citizen, what can I do to assist a family friend who lives in Jamaica with getting her into the US. We can provide a place for her to stay and a job. What is the process, what forms do we need to fill out and where do we need to submit the forms. She is looking to come to the US long term, what is the best way. She advised me that she submitted forms to obtain a visa once before but never heard anything. That was at least 5-6 years about.

You made me laugh and blush! !
Mr. Man, I truly appreciate you and your works. Your 'gyal' comment was the best. Shows you are a human with personality and not robotic. None the less, again I truly appreciate your charity and if you only knew what type of degree I hold you wouldnt be amazed. Matter of fact Im just too lazy to study immigration law (hint hint) wink. Blessings to you.

Is a foreign marriage valid in the US
Question

can i get married in another country
i'm going to haiti to visit my boyfriend. can I get married to him when i'm there without any problems and then when I get back to the u.s. will it be legal and then he can come over?
By Jen @ u.s

Answer
Oui oui. You can get married anywhere there is an official court or church willing to do it. A marriage in Haiti is just as valid as any other marriage. Dont forget the certificate and registration. Get it translated into English by a certified translator. The Haitian Consulate in the US can help you with a translator.
