Q. Was wondering if I just filed for I130 on July 2020, Can I apply for DACA?
A: There is nothing stopping you from filing for DACA, because you are being petitioned by others. However, it is unclear whether you qualify. I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any other complications. The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
Q. I am a US citizen, how long would it take to get a green card for my wife who has over stayed her visa?
A: The USCIS provides a processing time range at www.uscis.gov, but processing can take longer. Sometimes, more evidence is requested by USCIS or the application and petitions are denied before an interview is even scheduled. It is always wise to have matters reasonably reviewed before filing. It is unclear whether disqualification other than criminal background may exist. The current processing range for Chicago, Illinois is 7 to 29 months. That means that you cannot complain to USCIS until 29 months have elapsed and/or you've already had an interview. How to complain about the delay can vary depending upon the knowledge of which resources to seek within the USCIS. Also, whether those resources have enough staff to look into the matter or must delay action given the adjudicator's or official's case load. As a result, I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any more complication. Good luck. The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
Q. I am a green card holder. Will green card ban affect my husband who plans to leave US?
A: There are significant delays with visa petition and consular processing. There are also additional restriction which are best dealt with on U. S. soil where adjustment of status is still possible for him. If you depart too long to be with him, you can abandon your lawful permanent resident status. That means that you can no longer petition him, let alone, lawfully be admitted, yourself! As a result, I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any more complication. The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
