Q. I am on parol in Mississippi I broke my least and landlord said I owe $5600 is this effect anything
A: Only way I could see this affecting your parole is if you broke your lease and moved without letting your Parole Officer know of your new address. I would consult a Mississippi attorney to attempt to further delve into the situation.
Q. Foreign national, CEO and founder of a US 501c3 nonprofit - What are my immigration options other than B1 visa?
A: There are certain visa options that are different than the B1/B2 visa which would allow you to come to the United States to work with your non-profit, but many have limited circumstances in which they apply. I would consult an attorney who is well versed in these issues to discuss further.
Q. Yesterday IV got 3 ticket..in Mississippi. but I live in texas. 1. Speed 2. No proff of insurance 3. careless driving
A: Most counties in Mississippi will allow you to waive appearance and pay the tickets in full in order to avoid coming back to Mississippi. Depending on the circumstances, this could be an option for you. I would contact a Mississippi attorney to discuss this further.
Q. My brother has been locked up for 9 months. Hasn't been indicted yet. Court date is in Sept. What happens after his 270?
A: The speedy trial right needs to be invoked by the defendant (your brother) and hopefully already was invoked at the time of his initial appearance. However, it is routine in certain counties for a defendant to wait beyond 270 days to obtain a trial. Depending on his charges, he could ask for bond to be given or lowered, depending on certain circumstances like his charges, risk of flight, and level of perceived danger to the community. I would contact an attorney in Mississippi to discuss this further.
Q. My Colombian wife is visiting on a B1/B2 tourist visa. Will she have to leave to apply and do the fiancee visa process?
A: In short, her B1/B2 visa was given to her for tourist purposes. In order to get that visa, she had to show that she had non-immigrant intent, which means she did not intend to stay in the United States permanently. This is important, because if she tried to adjust status while still in the United States on a tourist visa, she would be screened heavily for visa fraud. For some people this is not an issue, because they can prove they came to the U.S. without intentions of getting married and remaining on a permanent basis. If she is already your wife and you have a marriage license, along with other evidence that the marriage is real, then you could have other options for her to immigrate to the United States. I would contact an attorney to discuss options, because visa fraud in these circumstances can be an issue and you want to proceed carefully.
