Legal Answers
30 Questions Answered

Q. Can I travel in & out of the US if I lost my green card, or do I need to replace it first?
A: If you have a two year green card you should apply to remove the conditions on your residence (Form I-751 if you received your green card through your US Spouse) 90 days before the expiration date on the card. Once that application is approved you will receive a 10 year green card. You should always have a valid card when you try to re-enter the country. You should contact an attorney for help.
Q. I just got married and my wife has been living here since 16. She entered with visitors visa. Any advice?
A: If you are a U.S. citizen you should contact an attorney for help. It is important that the attorney review your wife's immigration and criminal history before any documents are filed. The attorney should also explain the current risks of filing for someone who is undocumented.
