  1. While filing my I-129f I have hit a road block and can’t seem to find a clear answer anywhere. Under the criminal record section of the petition, it is unclear as to whether or not I should provide information regarding the two (non felony) DUI’s on my criminal record. These are fairly recent, from 2016 and 2017. As I interpret it, they must only be included if there are 3 or more drug or alcohol related offenses on the usc petitioners record. Can this be confirmed? I’m sure it’s best to be safe and provide the info, but I don’t want to add extra steps, as the process is already complex. If I should provide further information regarding the offenses, any advice on the documents I should provide and how to properly include them would be greatly appreciated! As a full disclosure, my fiancée is aware of my record so the US govt telling her this will not come as a surprise.
  2. It being late October, and no October filers for 2018 found on the site, so I started this one. I am a USC living in Brazil and petitioning for my Brazilian wife of 30 years. It's complicated, but the basics are that I am are applying for a resident visa for my wife for the second time, the first being granted in 1989 after our marriage in Texas in 1988. We lost the visa in 2014 in part because of my ignorance of immigration rules and because of family medical situations in Brazil that prevented my wife from traveling. In 1989 the procedure was very simple. Today it's become 10x more complicated due to 9/11. Since we both live outside the USA we are using a state-side lawyer to be sure all paperwork is as correct as possible. Turns out I would have submitted my I-130 in March, but due to using a lawyer, it was only submitted in October. I hope that at least it goes through without a hitch. On one hand she already has a SSN and it was necessary to include her old Resident Visa ID# on the application. Don't know if this will delay or speed up the process. Based on Oct 2017 filers, we might be looking at a long year ahead of us. 10/05/2018 I-130 sent 10/08/2018 I-130 received Chicago Lockbox
  3. Hey all!! I would like to know if you guys know how to get a job in the USA for a USC while living/working outside. Is there a site or something I could use?
  4. Please people, am a USC resident in South Dakota filed I-130 for my brother. South Dakota is supposed to be covered by Nebraska Service Center but my petition was sent to California Service Center. After initial submission, California Service Center sent me Notice of Action and the receipt for my petition, and from the research i made, California Service Center takes over 90 months to process I-130 while Nebraska takes between 12 and 15 months to process. What can I do to have my petition transferred to Nebraska Service Center which has jurisdiction over my State of residence? Will appreciate your help
  5. Hi, I currently have an H1B and got married to a US Citizen in March 2019. I filed both the 1-485 and the 1-130 together this May (2019) and now I'm waiting to receive the EAD and the green card (which may take a while). However, I am worried because my H1B expires on a month and today, after returning from a international trip, a custom agent told me that if I stay in the US after my visa expires I would be in "unlawful status" regardless of my pending 1-485 application. Is that true? I thought I can stay in the US without working while waiting for my EAD. If true what the agent said, how can I leave the country without "abandoning" my I-485 application? And how can I re-enter it? Do I need a Conditional resident visa? What status do I get if I stay after my visa expires? Thanks a lot!
  6. I'm sharing my personal AOS experience of trying this approach (without a lawyer). If you see my timeline, I'm in the very early stages of the AOS process. I'll provide future updates of my AOS progress. As you can read for yourself in this recent cheat sheet for immigration lawyers, two different circuit courts have found that when USCIS grants TPS it counts as an “admission” for purposes of AOS. The two cases are Flores v. USCIS, 718 F.3d 548 (6th Cir. 2013) and Ramirez v. Brown, 852 F.3d 954 (9th Cir. 2017). But you can only use this approach if you reside in the Sixth Circuit (Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Tennessee) or the Ninth Circuit (Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington (state)). Regular AOS applicants usually submit a copy of their I-94 as proof of admission, but I provided a copy of the 20 page Ramirez v. Brown decision (because I reside in the Ninth Circuit). I concurrently filed the I-130 (by my USC 21 year old son), AOS, EAD, and AP. I'll post as replies below my cover letters for each application (without personal info). Feel free to ask any questions if you are in the same situation.
