Immigration Law Questions? Ask an Immigration Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.
What state is your brother in?
And when you say that he never got his papers, what papers are you referring to?
After contemplating what you wrote, I'm really sorry to say that I don't think that I'll be able to provide you with a useful answer. However, it's quite likely that another attorney at this website will be able to do so. Accordingly, I will open your question for other attorneys to review. Thank you for using this service.

How did he enter the U.S.? Illegally or with a visa? Which visa? How long ago did he enter the U.S.? Has he applied for DACA yet? If not, why not? Does he have any crimes in his background? Please try to answer each question. Thank you.
DACA was big news a few years ago. People mistakenly called it the Dream Act or Dreamers Act, but it allowed persons that entered the U.S. as minors and stayed illegally to at least get a work permit. As I said, it was BIG news because it helped many people I'm pretty sure you had to have known about it. I have to assume that he did not apply for it because of his one crime. That one crime could make him permanently inadmissible to the U.S. I just ask that if my ultimate answer is bad news that you not shoot the messenger. Shooting the messenger is either leaving a negative rating (usually reserved for rude or unprofessional experts) or not leaving a positive rating at all.
How old was he when he committed the crime? Was he convicted? What was the jail sentence? Even if the sentence was suspended, I would still need to know what it was.
No problem. Just try to clarify how he entered the U.S., illegally or with a visa. If he says he used a visa, he will have to prove it. Also, fine out if he was convicted of a felony or a misdemeanor and find out what exactly for and what the exact sentence was even if it was suspended. Take your time as the question thread does not close. Thank you.
Hello. Are you still looking up that information for me? Please let me know. Thank you.
