My boyfriend is separated from his wife and is going BCT in

My boyfriend is separated from his wife and is going BCT in January. They have been married over a year and no children. Should he wait to divorce after BCT or do it now. He is afraid she will mess up his BCT or delay it some how. He has a green card and National Guard is fast tracking his citizenship. I think if he waits she will cost him money.JA: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?Customer: He has been granted a green card based on his marriage. So without the National Guard a divorce could cause question about his status. But with the National Guard then his stays isn't based on her anymore.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: He has been told that she could cause a pending court case and fight him which would mess him upJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Well if he goes to BCT while still married then we would have to be apart based on any charge against him for adultery. She would get housing and his benefits.

Living in Hong Kong with my wife who is a US Citizen (by

Hi. I am British, living in Hong Kong with my wife who is a US Citizen (by birth).I do not have a green card (we got married just over 1 year ago).We are thinking of moving to the USA soon, so I was getting ready to file my Green Card application.However the company I work for is also considering setting up an office in the USA and if they do this they would apply for an L1 visa for me.Given that I am expecting the Green Card process to take around 1 year, would making that application prejudice my L1 application if my company looks to transfer me in the next few months?I don't want to be in the situation where I get an opportunity to move sooner under an L1 with my company, but I cannot because I already have a Green Card application underway. In that case I would rather go under an L1 and then apply for adjustment of status once in the USA.But I can't not file Green Card forever just in case my company transfer does not go ahead.So can you please advise on whether the Green Card application would potentially affect my chances of getting an L1 visa before the Green Card is approved.Thanks

I recently got married in April but wife came to US on F1

I recently got married in April but wife came to US on F1 visa in Aug. When she went for visa interview, she filled it as single in marital status by mistake. She came to USA now. Can I claim her as wife and change marital my status to married? During green card processing, they ask for marriage certificate which will have April date from home country. So, how do we fix this issue? Also, does my wife need to inform on change of marital status now? Do we need to get married in USA to change marital status? We have marriage certificate from home country now but dated April. Thanks a lot in advance!

My Ex wife petition the immigration for my card which she

My Ex wife petition the immigration for my green card which she later abandoned due to some conflicts we had in the marriage. We are now divorce and she has withdrew her petition. Then yesterday I received a letter from the immigration giving my 30 days to leave the US. I and my Fiancee are planning to get married by June of next year here in the US and she is now scared that I will have to leave the US as per the immigration letter to me. What can we do to avoid me leaving the US within the 30 days period given to me and what the consequences and my chances of getting a green card if we go ahead to get married now and she files for me without me leaving the US?

Guillermo, I contacted you some months ago with many

Hi Guillermo,I contacted you some months ago with many questions about the green card process. I hope you are doing well.Now, I have different type of question. I hope you can help me as you did in the other times.My green card is still in process, however, I received the EAD together with Advance Parole.My husband live in a different state. I plan to move there in 2 months. I will not be able to continue working on my current job. So, I started to apply to some positions in his area.Since I started to apply (last week), I already received e-mails saying that I'm not considered for the position.Because I believe my resume are quite good for the applied positions, I'm wondering now if the fact of my green process is still pending could affect somehow the process.Do you have an answer for that?Best regards,Renata
