Legal Answers
261 Questions Answered
Q. Under the new 2023 immigration law to sponsor a Cuban immigrant, is the sponsor still financially responsible for 10 yrs
A: To be clear, what you are speaking about is not a new law, but a new policy under the Biden administration. A subsequent administration could do away with the program if it so chooses. As to one's financial responsibilities under the program, they are not the same as those under, for example, the affidavit of support (Form I-864) filed with a family-based immigration case. An entirely different form (Form I-134A) is used for the "Process for Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans and Venezuelans" program. From what this attorney has read so far, the parole period granted to a beneficiary under the program is 2 years (with extensions possible), and the sponsor must be able to demonstrate "sufficient financial resources to receive, maintain, and support the individual(s) whom they commit to supporting for the duration of their stay in the United States." Presumably, many who come to the United States under this program might go on to acquire some other type of status, e.g., lawful permanent resident status through other means, and depending on what status he or she may acquire, I can imagine some scenarios where arguably the original sponsor from the parole program would no longer be bound by the Form I-134A. Consider scheduling a consultation with a competent and experienced immigration attorney who can discuss your concerns in greater detail.
Q. Can I Obtain A Driver’s License in florida If I have I-797 approval for I-130 and am waiting for I-601a to be approved?
A: Unfortunately, no. Once your I-601A is approved, you can show that (and other certain documentation) to get a driver license. Consider scheduling a consultation with a competent and experienced immigration attorney if you have additional questions.
Q. Can I file a USCIS form I-130 for a 17 year old living in Thailand when his mother has already filed a form I-751
A: For the purposes of answering this question, I will assume that you are either a U.S. Citizen or U.S. Legal Permanent Resident yourself and that the "mother" mentioned in your question is your spouse and the child living in Thailand is your step-child. A step-parent can petition for a step-child so long as the "step" relationship was created prior to the child's 18th birthday. Because you mentioned the child is 17 years old, and I am assuming this is your step-child, then yes, you could file a petition for relative. Consider, however, scheduling a consultation with a competent and experienced immigration attorney who can ask you many questions to flush out all of the details needed to provide an informed opinion. Note that ever since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, many attorneys offer online video consultations.
