He came back the next month for good and has been here in US since with a clean record his I-130 and I-601A were approved, interview is in Juarez next month, is there a big chance he will be denied ViSa?

I am an American, born and raised in the USA. I have been married to a Lebanese national for the last 15 years. I presently live and work in Turkey. We have two children together, a daughter (age 14) and a son (age 9). Why do I have to wait until the immigration process is complete before I take my wife and kids to the USA? The process is taking much too long and my kids should be going to school in the USA.

Mr Senmartin, I have been reading about Prosecutorial Discretion

Mr Senmartin,I have been reading about Prosecutorial Discretion and it said that there are certain cases where they are not allowed to give this. I am concerned if the police report that could give a reason to believe problem might be one of these cases. Another area I read about did suggest as you have trying to get a letter from the Senator or Congressman. If the reason to believe prevented them from offering the discretion I don't know if a letter from either of a Senator or Congressman could help. I am just wondering if there is anything written that tells the cases where they are not allowed to offer this form of relief.

Hi! I need a bit of help, please related to filing for an ITIN

Hi! I need a bit of help, please related to filing for an ITIN for my same sex spouse living in Korea. I need to file taxes and list him as my spouse on federal this year. He is not a US citizen, as we are still in I130 application phase, but we are legally married in the state of Iowa.My questions start with when to send the request for ITIN---he is not working and is not a citizen, so he has no taxes to declare.
