Liliana is a unique and wonderful combination of intelligence, honesty, integrity, a dedication to her clients, and a capacity for immense hard work – five of the most important qualities a lawyer can have, all of which she has in abundance. Liliana has worked with me for over 7 years and has been one of the most devoted advocates for immigrants I have met. I would recommend her without hesitation or qualification to represent anyone with their immigration or business needs.

Q. hello i am living a troubled and abusive marriage, i have two daughters and i want to divorce.
A: You may qualify to obtain a green card despite the divorce under the law known as "VAWA"; a self-petition for spouses who are abused by a US citizen or resident spouse. With regard to the custody, that needs to be resolved in divorce proceedings in Family Court which is a legal process independent of the immigration process (except for how the divorce affects any immigration proceedings that are dependent on your marriage).
Q. I am a green card holder and filled my petition i130 on july 1st for my wife . How ling does it take uscis to process
A: It depends on many factors: your jurisdiction, on your wife's current status and whether she is in the United States, whether the application is subject to an interview (e.g. she is in removal proceedings). See the following link to get real time information: https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/
Q. I am an F-1 overstay. Married to USC. I-130 approved. I-485 is pending. ICE came searching for me and I got NTA.
A: There are many ways you can qualify for a work permit. One way is if you are eligible for Cancellation of Removal as an application for defense from removal. If you have lived in the US for over 10 years (not more than 90 days absent during those 10 years), if you have "good moral character" and you have a qualifying relative (e.g. a US born child), you could qualify for Cancellation of Removal. If this is an available defense, then you can apply for a work permit for the duration of the removal proceedings. There are many other defenses to explore such as eligibility for asylum, and any benefit for which you qualify, that could allow you to file for a work permit.
