Q. Could you please tell me if there is any update on asylum cases, which were filed May, 2015, after changes by USCIS
A: Thank you for your question.

There is not enough information provided to offer additional information. What changes by USCIS, do you have your I-797 receipt notice?

I suggest you reach out to an immigration attorney who will be able to offer additional assistance.
Q. My friend is coming to the US on a visitor visa. I want to surprise her with a marriage proposal. Is this visa fraud?
A: Thank you for your question.

The answer is, it depends. There are possibilities for both visitor visa fraud and marriage fraud in your scenario.

If the individual received a visitor visa in order to come to the US, get married, and stay in the country, this would be fraud as the individual received the visa with the understanding they would be returning to their country.

If you intend to marry this individual so that they can receive a green card and stay in the US without having to return to their country as a sham marriage, this would be fraud.

If this person is coming to the United States with no knowledge of your proposal which you are prepared to offer as a legitimate marriage, then based on your information, there would not be any fraudulent intent.

Good luck to the both of you, I hope everything goes well with your proposal.

Q. I'm Canadian born,married American born husband in 2006, & I obtained American citizenship in 2015.He now wants divorce
A: Thank you for your question.

I am sorry to hear about your marriage. You have now received citizenship, therefore you are free to move and will continue to have your United States citizenship.

There are questions circulating on the news and social media about citizenship being revoked, but these are in cases of fraud and other ill gotten privileges. In your instance, you have not indicated any adverse issues to raise this flag.
