Legal Answers
134 Questions Answered

Q. Can i go back to my country to study college while waiting for my green card here in US?
A: Much more information is needed. How did you enter the U. S.? Have you overstayed your entry card? Have you filed for adjustment of status? I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any other complications. Good luck.
Q. Can my husband apply for a green card if I sponsor him?
A: More information is needed. Was he admitted, inspected and allowed to enter the U.S.? If so, what type of visa? Has he ever departed the U. S.? These, among numerous other questions should be answered before any further action is taken. As a result, I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney, who will spend enough time to understand all the facts, then provide legal advice. There is hope, but spending time to discuss the process is the best first step. Good luck. The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
Q. When do I actually file to remove Condition from my green card?
A: File within the 90 day period before the 2 year card expires. Otherwise, there can be complications if the petition is not received, not filed or otherwise rejected. Be forewarned that the form instructions are incomplete. That is why it’s wise to seek legal advice. Good luck. The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
Q. Is there a way for my boyfriend to come to USA so we can live together here?
A: It will take a while. Perhaps, longer than you anticipate. I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any other complications. Good luck.
Q. My husband has been going through immigration court his attorney told the judge my husband would be applying for asylum
A: Your attorney may be doing all that is possible. The I-130 requires consular processing. He may need a waiver of inadmissibility for unlawful presence, but more information is needed. If there is a communication gap or you do not understand, then to figure out if your attorney is doing all that can be done, get a second opinion. Bring all the documents that you have to the other attorney. Again, I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any other complications. Be prepared to pay for that appointment or you may get more promises and continued confusion that deteriorates your confidence. perhaps. Good luck. The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
Q. What to do in correcting wrong entries in a birth certificate?
A: It’s a fact unless your parents correct it. You cannot correct your parents information, perhaps, but it’s uncl whether you can omit it. It will depend upon the laws in the country of your birth. I suggest that you discuss this with your parents before you take any action. Good luck. The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
Q. I was 12 at the time my father was Naturalized in 1990. Would I be eligible for automatic citizenship?
A: No. You are too old to qualify for the CCA, which was enacted after you turned 18 years old. You must naturalize, take the exam and be reviewed for any other disqualification including deportation. I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any other complications. Good luck. The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
Q. I am a permanent Resident of the USA. Am I allowed to write a letter of recommendation for a person who is detained
A: More information is needed. This sounds a bit more complicated than failing to bring in a document. Usually, people are taken into custody because they are deportable or were ordered deported. It is unclear whether the letter will be of much help. If the person is represented by a competent and experienced immigration attorney, then find out why the letter is needed and for what purpose. You may not get into any trouble, but the effort may prove useless to an ICE unless there is some other purpose for the letter. A person needs more than recommendation letters, when subject to detention. One issue may be good moral character in that they are likely to appear in immigration court, where a judge is deciding whether to approve or deny bond. Again, find out from the attorney, if there is an attorney, what is needed, so that the letter has some meaning to the CBP or the DHS. Good luck.
Q. my spouses family would like to help us purchase or payoff current house. Is this ok after applying for green card?
A: More information is needed. Who is telling you this? Why? Sometimes, such an action may complicate matters. Is the property in the name of the U.S. Citizen, or to be held jointly with the foreigner? I strongly recommend an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any complications. Our office covers the USCIS Louisville Sub-Office.
