My husband may be transferred to the US on a diplomatic visa
My husband may be transferred to the US on a diplomatic visa in the summer. There is no bilateral agreement between the US and the country he represents for reciprocal work arrangements for spouses but a de facto agreement is in place. I work as a consultant for an international organization, so this would be considered self-employed. Would this be acceptable under the de facto arrangement?
Hi, I have a question in regards ***** ***** N400. Im currently
Hi, I have a question in regards ***** ***** N400. I'm currently a resident and have been for 13 years. I have no problems filling out this form except for one question; 46A. The question is "Are you a male who lived in the United States at any time between your 18th and 25th birthdays?". This is in regards ***** ***** follow up Selective Service question of 46B.I came over on a tourist visa and got married when I was 25 (August 2000). By the time we did all our paperwork and everything I did turn 26 (November 2000). When we called in regards ***** ***** Selective Service they told us I was not eligible since I was already 26. So I did live in the US before 26 but got married right at the end of 25 and by the time the paperwork was done I was not eligible anymore. So I have no registration date or Selective Service Number. I just want to confirm that this is all OK, I don't want to hit a snag while filling out this form. Any help is very much appreciated.Thanks,Mark

Visiting on B2 visa Charges: Wife claimed & filed Aggravated Battery Charges ** Once arrested, immigration put a 'hold' on him Currently: Still incarcerated but expect charges to be proven false next week; evidence (a business video recording) surfaced proving he was in a different place at the time of the alleged accusations.

My spouse is a Canadian citizen and is working in the United States on a diplomatic visa. After his time is up, he wants to live here in the U.S. and change his visa to a permanent resident visa. How would we go about doing this without him having to go back to Canada?
I am on H1-B and my company is already in the process of applying
I am on H1-B and my company is already in the process of applying for Green Card. I believe my papers are with the DOL now for certification afterwhich I believe we post my current role for applicants. My new wife is on a G visa and working for the UN. The UN states in one of their documents that I need to transfer to G4 status but I am reluctant to do so cause I will have to be off payroll for 6-8 weeks.Do I really need to transfer to my wife's G4 status knowing that I have the Green Card on the way? Secondly what are the implications on my Green Card application? Have you had a client not transfer to G4 and still get the Green Card?Thanks.
