    Vawa 2019

    Hey, i was overstayed my visa more then 180 (i was suffering from abuse by USC and he hold my passport) I return to my home country with my newborn son (USC) one month ago. I only heard about vawa few days ago. my son cannot get any medical care because I missed some documents. we don't have nothing in my home country.. even my family don't willing to help me because religion and that I married a man that is not in the same religion as mine. For them it's a sin. i read in some websites that if ill try to return to us and they denied my entry because the overstaye i can ask to see a immigration judge. It's possible? If ill try to enter again and they denied my entry what can i do to overturn this decision??? I want to apply to vawa but i cant from abroad and I know there is vawa benefits for me and my son. Please tell me if its possible. Someone did it?? Thank you.
  2. Hello guys, I entered the United States last year in November to do a volunteer year. I was admitted as a b2 nonimmigrant visitor which expired 6 months later in May. I filled out form I-539 late March/early April and sent it to my organization who said they would file the form for me and pay whatever fees where necessary. I stayed in the United States till the beginning of December. It resulted in an overstay of approximately 187 days because I thought that I was given an extension of stay since I did not hear back from on whether my application was approved or denied. When I tried to re-enter the United States in the beginning of January to fulfill my volunteer year with another 6 months my visa has been refused to enter the United States and withdrawn my application. So I was being sent home and told that I have to apply for a new visa and I would need a waiver to overcome my Inadmissibility of overstaying. So I filled out my new visa application and went to my nearest consulate in Germany. They accepted my case and said they’ll file a waiver for me. My question now would be is it possible that I will get an fast answer? I saw on every website that a waiver application takes usually 4-6 months maybe even longer to get approved cause if this process takes so long it wouldn’t be worth for me to lose 6 months to come back to the United States. I know that the waiver is a complex and tough thing to get but what are my chances to get fast approved?
  3. My mum has visiting visa (B2) that is valid till 2020. she was authorized to stay till dec 12th (I-94), but due to unforeseen circumstances (complications in the birth of my first child, and the airline being (removed) she missed her flight but is scheduled to fly back on the dec 28th (we had to book another return ticket and the 28th was the earliest), 16days after her authorized stay would have expired. I want to file a I-539 (extend stay) with proof that the airline screwed up and also the birth cert of my child and the new return date tickets. but I can't file an I-539 since she is already overstayed. i just want to let them know the reason she overstayed, since she still has a valid visa till 2020, i don't want a situation where she visits again (prolly in a year from now) and she gets turned back. Is it necessary to file this or just let her go back on 28th?
  4. I had overstayed my F-1 student visa after the end of my OPT for 107 days or 47 days if you count the grace period. It happened 1 year ago. I am going to my CR1 interview married to a US citizen. There has been 0 hiccup so far. I was honest and stated it clearly in my application to NVCthat I had an overstay. Has anyone experienced this before? What should I be prepare for the interview?
  5. I am a permanent US resident for 7 years. Married for 3 years. Married in the US, spouse is on overstayed visa. I-130 was approved at the end of 2015. I had a DUI and wanted to wait 5 years before filing for citizenship to be sure that I'd get it so I am not a citizen yet. Visa Bulletin number came up and we filed the I-485. We were told that we should not be worried because UCSIS does not enforce the law if your only immigration violation is overstaying your visa. I have been reading up on the subject after filing, got nervous and went to another attorney for consultation, who told us that it's basically 100% that our application will be denied as USCIS only forgiving overstaying for spouses of US citizens but not for spouses of permanent residents. The first attorney insist that all is good she had a few clients in the same situation and never had a problem at the interviews. I don't know who to believe or what to do... Was somebody in similar situation? What happened in the interview? Should I withdraw the application and not risk my spouse's interview until I'm a US citizen? Even if I would file for citizenship today, it would not be approved timely, before the 485 interview. ..
