Q. How to add a second/ new joint sponsor on CEAC, already have one but visa office during interview said need a new one
A: You should follow any instructions that the consular officer gave to you, as sometimes they request that the documents be mailed to them and if that is the case they usually send an email with instructions and a courier label for mailing. I believe once the DS-260 and all documents are accepted by NVC, the CEAC account is locked so if you were requested to upload the joint sponsor to CEAC the consular officer should have unlocked your account to allow you to upload the necessary documents.
Q. I want to find out if theres a way to get a personal review from Homeland security and FBI from someone who is in Mexico
A: To request your mom’s A-file from either USCIS (immigration service) or EOIR (immigration court), you can file a FOIA request, which does not require fingerprinting. In addition, if you know any dates that she was caught by U.S. Customs and Border Protection or Immigration and Customs Enforcement, you can also submit a FOIA request directly to those agencies. The FBI requires paper and ink fingerprint cards; however, it looks like a Name Check can be requested when the fingerprints have been rejected twice for image quality by the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division. However, the Name Check is limited to state, federal, and regulatory agencies that already have legal authority to submit fingerprints for non-criminal justice purposes.
Q. Can I apply for residency while my immigration case is still being processed?
A: If you were admitted or paroled into the United States at the time of your entry then you might qualify to apply for adjustment of status under the Cuban Adjustment Act, which allows Cuban nationals who have been admitted or paroled after Jan. 1, 1959 and physically present in the United States for at least one year to apply for their green card.
