Legal Answers
220 Questions Answered
Q. When can I file the petition for the K1 visa?
A: As the saying goes, "There's no time like the present." - particularly given the requirement that you and your fiancée have met physically at least once during the 2 year period immediately preceding the filing of your Petition for Fiancé(e). Consider scheduling a consultation with a competent and experienced immigration attorney who can evaluate your case to make sure there are no pitfalls. Many attorneys during the COVID-19 pandemic are offering online video consultations (via Skype, Zoom, etc.).
Q. I am a US citizen..My mother have Tourist visa, she is 86 and recently my father died,she is leaving in Ecuador ,
A: Consider scheduling a consultation with a competent and experienced immigration attorney who can advise you and your mother the proper procedure for immigrating permanently to the U.S. given her intent to do so from outside of the United States. If she has preconceived intent from outside of the United States to acquire a green card, entering on a visitor visa to pursue adjustment of status would be improper. A consular processing based case would likely be in order. Again, perhaps seek out the counsel of a good lawyer. Many law offices during the COVID-19 pandemic are offering telephone and online video consultations.
Q. Green card and Citizenship
A: Unless you have been married to and living with a U.S. Citizen spouse for the last three (3) years, it would be premature to file an application for naturalization, as it seems you may need to file under the "5-year" rule. Even then, if you have any trips outside the United States during the 5-year period just prior to applying, that/those 6+ month trip(s) create(s) a rebuttable presumption that you have broken "continuity of residence", which is a requirement for naturalization. What you should likely do is schedule now a consultation with a competent and experienced immigration attorney who can evaluate your facts and documentation to best advise you as to when would be the best time to file so as to maximize your chances for success. Many law firms, including mine, are offering online video or telephone consultations during the COVID-19 pandemic. Good luck!
