  1. Entry is suspended unless you are in any of the following categories: -lawful permanent resident of the United States; -spouse of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident; -parent or legal guardian of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, provided that the U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident is unmarried and under the age of 21; -sibling of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, provided that both are unmarried and under the age of 21; -child, foster child, or ward of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, or who is a prospective adoptee seeking to enter the United States pursuant to the IR-4 or IH-4 visa classifications.
  2. He is adjusting status for his wife's kids. His wife already has a green card.
  3. The USCIS offices will start reopening on June 4th. You can schedule an appointment to get an I-551 stamp on your passport -it will serve as the green card for one year-, and also inquire about the fate of your green card: it could have been returned to the sender. You can file a fee waiver form when filing for the replacement.
  4. You just need the expired GC and the NOA you received when you filed for ROC. The NOA extends the validity of the GC for 18 months.
  5. A tip that applies when looking for a job on a professional level, no matter your field, where are you applying or where you come from is: certification, certification, certification. Unfortunately, most areas are highly competitive and having a degree or years of experience are no longer enough. So it is very important to gather certificates for all kinds of qualifications your area requires. Find formal courses from reputable institutions that offer official diplomas/certifications.
  6. Update: it is indeed a Google ad, keeps appearing despite dismissing it and it just happens when I use this site.
  7. Yes, there is an "x" on the upper right. The ads tend to be like the ones embedded in the threads -immigration attorneys, etc.-.
  8. Some couples are opposites, some others are like peas in a pod. In any case, marriage should feel good, and right. And most of all, fulfilling. I truly hope you find an answer for all your questions and take a decision that benefits you.
  9. Whenever I enter the website and click on ANY thread, first thing I see is a full page ad. I have to go back and click again. Stops happening as long as I don't close the window. If I open a new window later, it happens again. It has been an ongoing thing for weeks now. I'm using a tablet running on Android.
  10. Certainly we can only speculate. I stumbled upon this case on social media. The few details given appeared quite odd. A few commenters on the story advised VAWA, but my guess is that they already tried and failed.
  11. You are not wrong for being upset and disappointed. And I think there are two very important things you can do. First, what you already did: venting, even if it is in an immigration forum. This helps you getting things out of your system in a somewhat innocuous environment, which can be very cathartic. The fact that you wrote it, helps you organizing thoughts. Verbalizing your own feelings is very useful -even if you don't share them with anyone-. And reading everyone's input gives you a new perspective. Second, which I guess you're actively doing, is questioning yourself honestly: Why did I marry him? Is he the "love of my life"? What do we share and have in common? Do I see myself with him the rest of my days? Do I want to fix things out of love, fear or guilt? Is this just a phase? Marriage is not just about romantic love. It is a quite complex team project, that ideally lasts a lifetime. As with any team project, goals have to be clear and one has to choose partner wisely.
  12. So it is very likely that this person's attorney is just giving her false hopes -and charging for it-.
  13. Found a random case that caught my attention -mind you, I just have bits and pieces about it-. Woman enters the country on a K1, gets married, claims abuse during AOS and gets divorced. Husband "cancels" immigration process and now, she is filing through the father -naturalized citizen- as petitioner, though she states she will get citizenship, not residence (unsure if this "citizenship" thing is a misused term or an actual claim from her attorney). From my understanding, she's not a resident now, as original AOS was canceled and maybe a VAWA self petition was not successful. So, in this case, if I'm not mistaken, she has no status currently and if petitioned by the father, it would take well over 10 years to obtain a green card. Given the circumstances, some questions come to my mind: -can the beneficiary stay in the country all those years? -under which status? -is the EAD/AP renewed periodically until the petition is approved?
  14. Maybe the friend has a conditional GC -2 years- and didn't file for removal of conditions. Therefore the letter.
