My parents are US Permanent Residents since 2014. However, they had to travel to Chile to take care of some legal issues in September 2015. Unfortunately, my dad who is 80 years old got very sick In Chile and the Dr recommends not to risk his health by traveling back to the United States, because he is very weak and fragile and could possibly not resist a 10 hour flight. They were planning on being back in January 2017, but that doesn't seem very realistic considering he is so sick. My question and concern is since they are permanent residents of the United States and won't be able to come back home for while - will they lose their residency? How can we go about extending it for a longer period of time? Please, if someone knows advise on this forum, it will be greatly appreciated. Thank You

hey, this is Joseph.

I am a Chilean citizen, I've lived all my life here and I've been thinking about this option for a while.

I really wanna start fresh and move to the United States for various reasons, I was bullied in school, I've been through hell and back, I've struggled with feeling like I don't belong here all my life, and now I'm finally ready to start moving forward.

I have family in New York so that's the State I'm planning to move, I was wondering, is a college degree necessary for a work visa? do you guys think me being fluent in English would help me out while I'm there? would it be better if I move there temporarily (on a tourist visa)?

I have a friend who is willing to help me find a job, but I'm not sure if me not having a degree would be a problem.

if he is willing to sponsor me, is a college degree necessary? I have so many questions and I don't really know where to start.

Just out of curiosity, do the immigration officers make notes on every person that enters the United States in regards to what they said when they enter?

My fiancee and I traveled together one time back to the United States from Chile, but we separated for the immigration portion because the directing officer first kind of separated us when she was pointing us to which window we should go to and we weren't married nor had we started any immigration process quite yet so I didn't think we were actually "traveling together" like as a couple. Especially since they make you do the form as a "family", I had never traveled back together with him and it was 12:30am and I was exhausted when we were going through the line so maybe not thinking 100%.

Now I wonder though if this could cause an issue because we said we were "traveling separately". My fiancee did say that he was coming over to see family and friends to the immigration officer.

Do you think this could cause issue with our case? My fiancee did leave in the time required and we didn't marry or anything like that while he was here on the VWP.

We aren't quite here yet, but if/when we get the NOA2 and my fiancee has to send his police records with the documents for the consulate must he also go with the police records for the United States? The second time he came here he got charged with Disorderly Conduct. The case was dismissed, has no legal effect and my fiancee was presumed innocent.

He does not have any police record in his country.

Is this also something that he could get denied at the consulate for?
