Does previously cancelled visa has any negative impact on
Does previously cancelled visa has any negative impact on citizenship application? 15 years ago, my visa was cancelled at the port of entry (Nassau, Bahamas) I was given the permission to withdraw my application to enter the US and I flew back home from Bahamas. Less then year later, I applied for another visa (B1/B2) and it was granted. Consular officer as why my visa was cancelled and I explained. The visa is issued to my new passport because I did not want to travel around with the old one. I have been a permanent resident since 2005 and planning to apply for citizenship. Have I been excluded, removed or deported?JA: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?Customer: NoJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I am a legal permanent resident. Yes, she suggested to file a FOIA request with CBP.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No.
I have an approved I-130 as a married son of American
I have an approved I-130 as a married son of American Citizen with priority date of 1999. We have arrived in 2000 using B1/B2 visa. In 2000 we filed for I-485 and I-765. we received our approved work authorization in September of 2000 under (C)(9) category. In 2011 our I-485 was denied and my work authorization has expired. From 2011 to 2016 I continued to work with my employer without a valid work authorization, the reason being is they were actually not checking on my status. In October 6, 2016 I lost my job with this employer. I recently been offered another job by another employer. My question is if I will change the expiration date in my work authorization using photoshop and submit a copy to my new employer on the first day of work for I-9 purposes. Will this hurt me in the future if i file for another I-485 when my priority date becomes current? Will this become a false misrepresentation to USCIS? I realized that I will be making false misrepresentation on a third party but not on any Immigration Official. I can be terminated if they found out but I am so desperate to have another job because I need to eat and feed my family.
I have an approved I-130 petition as a married son of an
I have an approved I-130 petition as a married son of an American Citizen. My wife and I was born in the Philippines and I am 52 years old. My priority date is September 24, 1999. We arrived in the U.S. on July 7, 2000 on a B1/B2 Visa. in August of 2000 we applied for I-485, in 2011, we finally received the letter from USCIS regarding our AOS application and unfortunately it was denied. From 2000-2011, we were in lawful status and with valid work authorization and from 2011 to present we were not in lawful status. I paid my taxes every year and I have not committed any crimes. I am currently in the process of filing a divorce due to some personal issues. If my divorce is approved by the court, that will change my Preference Status from F3 to F2B. According to the October 2016 VISA Bulletin, USCIS is processing AOS application with priority date of January 2006 for the F2B Preference. Assuming the court approved my divorce I can file another AOS application using the 245(i) of the immigration law. My first question is if I divorce my spouse and file for AOS under F2B preference and it gets approved, can I remarry my ex-wife after I being a GC holder for 6 months? Will USCIS cancel my GC if I remarry my ex-wife?I know my wife and I will be banned for 10 years if we exit the U.S.A., I have GC holder daughter who will become an American Citizen within 3 years. If we exit the U.S.A. and become banned for 10 years, and If the ten years banned is still in effect, can we comeback to U.S.A. within 3 years if our daughter become a citizen and if she petition us.Third question i have is. I filed another I-765 October 6, 2016 even I know for a fact that my AOS was denied in 2011. Will that become a False Misrepresentation later during if I will be interviewed for I-485.
I have filed N-400 and am awaiting interview to become
I have filed N-400 and am awaiting interview to become citizen. I want to petition for my parents who came here over 15 years ago on a B1/B2 visa. They overstayed. About 10 years ago, they filed a LULAC application to adjust status but application was abandoned because we moved around the same time and did not get the interview letter on time. We were advised by a few attorneys at the time that we could not do anything. Would any problems arise for them once I petition? I plan on doing concurrent filing with 1-130/i-485/i-765. What are the chances that they will be called in for an interview because of this abandoned LULAC app and the interviewer asking about this abandoned/denied application? Also, a follow up questions as I wish to petition for siblings as well, since they are not considered immediate relatives, will they have to return to home country before adjusting status? If my parents get through with adjustment, is it better for them to petition for my siblings?

I being a us citizen petitioned for my mothers card. She
I being a us citizen petitioned for my mothers green card. She went to her consulate appointment but was denied under 3 conditions. 6C1, 9B2, 9C1.She received a 10 year bar. My question is if the i601 waiver can be applied. I have my younger sister (minor)back in the states who now doesn't have any parents or legal guardians. Can that be used to prove extreme hardship on a us citizen relative to waive her bar. Also my mothers ex husband lives in Mexico and could potentially cause her physical harm if he finds out she is in the country.
My girlfriend is married to an illegal immigrant. He is
My girlfriend is married to an illegal immigrant. He is pressuring her to not get divorced because it is his only chance to avoid deportation. he has a new girlfriend and just had a baby with her. he has one child with my girlfriend. my question is, can i get into any trouble for knowing that they are not getting divorced to keep him here? Also, could he claim any rights to anything of mine since he is still married to her? (we live in their old house but she bought/financed it under her name only and he is not on the mortgage.1-Can i get into any trouble knowing that they are not divorcing in order for him to have a chance to stay?2-is there any way he could come after me, her, or my property given that he is still legally married?I have told her i will not start a family with her until she divorces him and commits to marrying me. we have been together for 3 years and getting older.she is caught bc of her 7yr old daughter with him (that he has little to do with and gives virtually nothing in child support), but it is still her dad so she doesnt want to see him get deported. I also don't want to pressure her into getting him deported/divorcing if in the end it really means nothing and i can't get into trouble.
I had filed a I 140 peition under EB1 EA 3 years ago using
I had filed a I 140 peition under EB1 EA 3 years ago using services of a Chicago based law firm. I had quoted some of my professional memberships/ awards/ judging invites etc and filed it. Only after 6 months of filing there was an RFE issued which we responded and the case went on a limbo for almost 2.5 years. Now after 3 years, I am issued a NOID with 4 misrepresentation allegations, with very poor chance of approval. Now I hired a very famous immigration law firm based out of Owings Mills, MD. I have shown them the evidence that I have to beat those 4 misrepresentation allegation. They say that it is not very competent and the officer may not be satisfied. They are saying that it is in the best interest to withdraw the petition with a strong argument with some laws and statues that they cannot deny or doing a finding of misrepresentation after filing the withdrawal. I was hoping to withdraw with a proper evidence to rebut all the 4 allegations, so that I don't run the risk of a finding on my record. Especially the NOID says if I withdraw without rebutting those allegations, there may still be a denial and finding on my record. But this famous law firm states that that's incorrect and that's what they will fight with laws and statues. They say it will be withdrawn with no misrepresentation finding and it is better not to introduce any new evidence. Is this correct? Is this what doctrine of timely retraction is since the case is not yet approved?
