She also has two US citizen kids four and eight year old . And they are going to stay here in US,not going to travel with us they are staying with my mother in United States . Her criminal record is absolutely clean nothing negative no immigration issues , no deportation or any removal order. Only thing she has overstayed her visa since 2006. Can you please let me know how confident we should be while we travel. Also two year foreign resident rule does not apply on her 2006 J1 visa.Thank you .

FOR JAMESI spoke with you about a year ago about my friend being in immigration jail. He was released in March 2016 and was ordered to wear a angle monitor and placed on probation for one year by US Marshals. March 3 will end his probation and the monitor will be removed. Since ICE denied his U-Visa and have not replied to his immigration attorney could that mean he will be deported? Or will the fact that he had fake documents claiming to be a US Citizen automatically be deported?

I would like to know what makes a person inadmissible to the US? My finance is trying to get a K1 visa to come to the US to get married, but he was convicted of an assault charge back in 2003 and was sentenced to 5 month detention in China. Will that make him inadmissible? The consulate general in Guangzhou, China is now asking him to provide documents from government showing his maximum sentence for the charge.

My friend currently is 31 years old and currently has DACA.

My friend currently is 31 years old and currently has DACA. He wants to become a permanent resident through his U.S. citizen wife. However, he received a deportation order in 2003, and he was finally deported in 2006 by ICE. He then returned to the U.S. later in 2006.A local lawyer has said that he would file a motion to re-open and close the previous deportation case, and then fix his status, but really how does he fix his status to be a permanent resident? With the previous multiple entry, wouldn't he be subject to 212(a)(9)(C)(i) if he left the U.S. on advanced parole or an I-601A? The following link only talks about 212(a)(9)(B)(i) not 212(a)(9)(C)(i). https://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/files/publications/14_1120_memo_arrabally.pdf

I have a question about age-out, CSPA and AOS for K-2 visa holders. I have a soon to be stepson, who has his K-2 visa interview later this month. He will be a following-to-join and will arrive in the US 2 weeks before he turns 21 (he needs to finish college in the UK). I will have married my K-1 fiance after he turns 18 and filed for her AOS before he arrives . Is he protected from aging out under the CSPA ? I can't seem to find a direct answer
