To whom it may concern:I received my green card in May 2007. It's up for renewal (as it will expire on May 31, 2017). I missed the filing of tax return in 2011. Will my application for green card renewal be rejected (or be risking rejection)? If so, can anything be done right now? Many thanks for your help.Yours, Robert

Ely, I spoke to you about my situation about leaving a

Hello Ely,I spoke to you about my situation about leaving a country and I currently have my second 10 year green card renewed in 2015 and received it in March 2016. My I originally received my green card through a fiance visa back in 2000. My ex husband and me filed to remove petition to remove condition after two years and I received my 10 year green card after that. I divorced in 2005. I talked to a lawyer in this site and they just scared me with the divorce and removal of condition that the iNS might think the marriage might be a fraud. But we owed a house together and filed taxes together and had joint bank accounts. But to go back and try to get the documents might take some time. Im traveling next wee to Malaysia with my new husband who is a US citizen and the lawyer said that coming back into the country the officer can pull up my history and refer me to an immigration proceeding if he thought the first marriage was a fraud. I did nothing wrong. Do I need to carry documents likr the house we bought together when I travel to prove to the port officer? Woudnt the INS already looked at that when I renewed my green card? I am really concerned with his answers and thinking should I even have to travel.

Can someone withdraw an application I-90 card renewal? They

Can someone withdraw an application for their I-90 green card renewal? They have recently already gone in and had their biometrics done. Apparently my friend has a previous domestic violence conviction (273.5(a)) from the year 2000. He received a misdemeanor sentence of 30 days in jail. So can he withdraw his green card renewal application? Will they place him in removal proceedings?

My friend is looking about an immigration question. 1. She

My friend is looking for advice about an immigration question.1. She obtained permanent residency through marriage to a U.S. citizen in 2004. She had legal entry when she adjusted status with a previous I-94 at the time. She was originally born in 1973 in the Philippines.2. She thought that she was completely and officially adopted in the Philippines by U.S. citizen parents. She submitted this adoption paperwork with her applications I-130, G-325a, etc. when she applied for and received permanent residency through marriage in 2004. So she stated on those applications that her parents were her adopted parents not her natural parents. ** Her adopted parents did go through with 95% of the adoption in the Philippines, however the final submission was not sent to the Philippines authorities at the time (by the lawyer there), and there was a 3 month window to do so. She only learned of this when requesting a new adoption certificate when visiting the Philippines in 2014.3. Now she wants to renew her green card and obtain naturalization, and even petition her natural birth parents.4. Can she somehow get her USCIS records changed (G-325a, etc.) so that it more accurately states her birth parents as her parents? How should she fill out her green card renewal and naturalization forms now? Should she just play dumb for now and continue to use her adopted parents names (as the previous applications were completed) when she completes her green card renewal and naturalization forms? When she is able to petition her natural parents, she would then need to try to get her adoption terminated in order to petition her natural parents, but she would be unable to terminate a petition if her adoption was never 100% complete.What would be the best route to take?

I am a Green card holder with a drug paraphernalia citation

I am a Green card holder with a drug paraphernalia citation (it is a marijuana pipe), I pleaded no contest to enter deferred disposition at the time to get the citation dismissed (was told by the county clerk that this can stop it from going on my record - the clerk wasn't aware that I am not an U.S. citizen), I didn't seek legal advise at the time and didn't know the serious consequence of pleading no contest to that citation... I researched all over the internet, some says it is an exception if the drug paraphernalia is involved with a single offense of possession of marijuana 30 grams or less, some says it cannot be waved because it is not a marijuana possession charge, some says it is not sufficient to deport a legal alien but it results in inadmissibility thus should not travel outside of U.S.I would like to apply for naturalization eventually, but I am really worry that if I'm going to get deported. In 2014, I renewed my green card without any issues, is it possible that USCIS overlooked my record, or it just means it's not an offense that triggers deportability?
