Q. Which French visa is the appropriate visa given these circumstances?

Q. I need to forward my immigration court cause I’m out side us now and i found difficult to return back what do i do

Q. What should my US citizen spouse do if he did not file his most recent 2nd and 3rd taxes on form i 864 due to no job?
A: Your husband must still file an 864, despite that his income is not enough, and explain why he didn't file taxes. Also, you can enlist the joint sponsor and if he has sufficient income, as long as he is an LPR or US citizen. Keep in mind if you file after the 24th, the old forms are going to be new and the rules on what would qualify you under the old affidavit of support will be drastically altered and require a much higher burden of proof. I suggest you work with counsel anywhere in the USA to maximize your chances of success. Good luck.
Q. A porch torch burned my friend dress as she walked by it and caught fire is there a case. 3rd degree burns?
A: Yes, if your friend suffered injuries as a result of Walmart's negligence, then she has a case. Retain counsel here in Orlando on contingency fee, which means your friend doesn't pay anything unless she wins. Also, take alot of pictures of the injury while it is still fresh. Also go back to the store and take pictures of the instrumentality that caused her injury, if its still there.

Q. What should I do when the Immigration officer?
A: It may be a problem that you and your wife do not live together. That sends up red flags. The best strategy would be to retain counsel to attend the interview. Above all else, tell the truth and explain why you don't reside together. You can bet that both of you will be interrogated separately.
