Q. I would love to get married to my soul mate. She has been in the U.S. for 5yrs but not legally. What do we need to do
A: Consider scheduling a consultation with an immigration attorney. The attorney will evaluate if your fiancée is eligible for adjustment of status or for an I-601A waiver or some other form of relief.
Q. My biological daughter age 14, born outside of USA and came in USA on 2016 . Is she eligible to file for Citizenship?
A: If you naturalize before she turns 18, and she lives with you and you have custody of her, she should automatically acquire citizenship pursuant to the Child Citizenship Act of 2000. But to make sure, please consult with an attorney.
Q. Don't want to overstay my visa, but my country is closed because of Coronavirus. What can I do?
