I have a friend from Uganda who is here on an F-1 student
Hi Jennifer,I have a friend from Uganda who is here on an F-1 student visa. The F-1 visa expires 8/16 and her I-20 expires May 2017. She wants to become a permanent resident with a green card.From what I've read she needs to file an Adjustment of Status (I-485), but someone, either the school, an employer, or even a blood relative already here on a green card, has to file the form for her. Is that correct? Can she file for it on her own?Someone had to file the F-1 for her, so I'm guessing it was the school she attends. She's in college.Is there anything else that she will need to do.

My boyfriend lives in Iraq. He is a citizen of Iraq. I will
My boyfriend lives in Iraq. He is a citizen of Iraq. I will be going there at the end of January to formally meet him and ready ourselves to marry. I have checked with an agency on that process already. My questions are:What would be the process to bring his mom, dad, and two minor siblings to the US to live and work here? How long would it take (approximate)? Please give me guidance on what to do. None of them have any bad history. His dad works as a border patrol agent in Iraq...my boyfriend is a traffic policeman there. The mother does not work. The children are minors.Is there another way other than marriage to secure him visa and green card to come here, i.e., school, etc?
We are in US years now on a green card from a
We are in US for two years now on a green card from a diversity visa lottery. We are a family of four: my wife, two kids and I. I have a very good job offer in Europe that would require me to be away for more than six months a year. 1. Will I lose my greencard if I work abroad and pay the taxes and the family stays in the US? If I lose my green card status, would it be easy to restore it as we are still married and the wife and kids still have a green card? How long could it take? 2. I know there is an optionto take one year leave, in this case I will lose the two years that we have already been here and will have to start five years anew to get the citizenship. Are there any alternatives? 3. Should I contact the immigration directly and ask what are my options?4. Are there any exemptions to the six months in the country rule? I need a clear and detailed explanation please and I might have few further clarifying questions.

My girlfriend would like to apply for citizenship in the US. She is a well educated Italian citizen with a Bachelor's degree in foreign language and culture from Torino University. She then graduated with a Master's degree in International Development from Tsinghua University in Beijing. She is trilingual with English, Spanish, and Chinese. She is currently working in Torino for an online marketing company as an International account manager. What are some options for her to become a legal resident here in the US (state of California specifically) besides a visa sponsor from an employer in the US or marriage?
