I am a j2 holder who was divorced from my j1 visa holder. I am currently married to my wife who is a us citizen for a couple of years now. my lawyer applied for a waiver since I got a non objective letter from my country. I found out that she did not submit a copy of my divorce to the us state dept. when she did the waiver application. I checked my case status and saw where they had gotten some documents. On Thursday I saw on the state website that a letter of ineligibility was sent. but my case is still saying pending. What does this mean?

I immigrated from Cuba at the age of 3 years old with my family in 1969. I have an A# ***** don't think I ever received or had or maybe lost my permanent resident card. Both of my parents are now deceased but they did become US citizens after my 18th birth date so that did not qualify me to become automatically a US citizen. My problems is that due to wrong choices I've made in life, I have a criminal history that started in 1994 on an off for cocaine use, petty theft and DUI's. I have a deportation order pending. I've been clean for a while and want to get back on my feet and work, but cannot get my license or even an ID if I don't show proof of my legal status. Should I file for I-589 to see if they can remove my deportation order and then form I90 to replace my permanent resident card? My state of residence is Florida and been here since 1969. Thanking you for your advice.

Hi. I put an ad on Craig's list for trading room and board for 15 hours/week of childcare. I expected one of the local college students to reply- but a very nice woman on a visitor's visa responded. I like her a lot and would be comfortable with her moving in- but I don't want to get in any trouble. Can you give me any advice?

Have a contractor (sets own hours, uses own tools...). We tried to hire her for full time work, but she prefers to remain independent. In the process of offering employment, we learned that she probably isn't documented properly for immigration and wouldn't be eligible for hire. Do we have any risk in knowing this? Are we "on notice" and an accessory to a crime? We may even help this person with economic payments immigration counsel to become legal.
