Legal Answers
20 Questions Answered

Q. I got my GC in 2011 through "follow to join process" from my husband (he self sponsored his GC as a skilled worker).
A: File based on your own green card history; you do not qualify for the 3 year natz.
Q. My fiancé was caught coming over he has court dates, he has attended, now we are going to get married we have a child
A: 1, Immediately hire an immigration lawyer. 2. If he already has an attorney, I cannot interfere with that attorney-client relationship by providing advice that may possibly conflict with the advice given to him. 3. Your question requires too much time and too many questions that I have to ask of him in order to be of any assistance. Again, he must hire an immigration lawyer to defend him in the deportation proceedings. That lawyer will be able to answer all of your questions as well.
Q. I'm green card holder with Indian passport.I'm planning to travel India in April month. Will it issue with travel ban?
A: Should not have problems unless you have criminal or immigration fraud history. I recommend that you pursue U.S. citizenship in order to perfect and protect your status.
Q. My spouse overstayed his Visa but we need to fix an error on his I-94 at a CBP office. Will he be arrested for overstay?
A: First determine if he has a new I-94. Viz: https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/#/home If no info there, take your proof of lawful entry to CBP office.
Q. I am US citizen, my girlfriend of 2yrs has DACA status, we would like details on what steps are needed to get married?
A: I would urge you to consult with and hire an immigration lawyer to assist you and her with this case. Not because I think you’re not capable of handling it, you may will be, but in order for the lawyer to debrief and brief you, analyze, assess and evaluate your case in order to maximize the possibilities for a successful result. Your Q requires too many Qs on my part before I can give you an answer. Important issues are: how did she enter USA with or w/o visa? Criminal record? Prior unsuccessful attempts to enter USA? Prior deportation proceeding? "Immigration law is a mystery and a mastery of obfuscation, and the lawyers who can figure it out are worth their weight in gold."…Immigration & Nationality Service spokeswoman.
Q. If I revoked sponsorship (before gc issued) due to financial circumstances, can I apply to sponsor same person now?
A: Yes. Assuming your son-in-law's case is still pending and they haven't substituted a co-sponsor for you.
Q. Can we work on pending H4 EAD application based on H1b spouse's I140 petition? H1B/ H4 extension also pending with USCIS
A: No, safer to wait until I-765s are approved. Check w/your immigration lawyer.
Q. Will it impact my H1b appeal case if I have a new job when I wait for the result?
A: No & No. That being said, get to see your immigration lawyer, not the companies' lawyers, for your privacy and independent advice.
Q. What is the best way to file for green card for someone that is married to a US citizen and is on F1 visa?
A: I would urge you to consult with and hire an immigration lawyer to assist you with this case. Not because I think you’re not capable of handling it, you may will be, but in order for the lawyer to debrief and brief you, analyze, assess and evaluate your case in order to maximize the possibilities for a successful result. Gather your original birth/ marriage/divorce/death certificates and English translation and consult w/an immigration attorney.
