My natural parent(mother) will be visiting the United States
My natural parent(mother) will be visiting the United States again soon. She is on a B1/B2 visa. She was here from 08/27/16 - 10/01/16. I will like to apply for her to adjust her status when she gets here. My concerns is mainly around two issue 1. Immigration intent. - this will be her second visit to the United States on this B1 visa. If we apply to adjust her status, can she be denied for immigration intent? 2. Even though she is my biological mother, she was not listed on any of my paper work. i.e (green card application/ US citizenship application) my stepmother has been on my paper work as my mother. Does this matter? I have my birth certificate that shows the name of my biological mother. Any other issues we should be worry about?
I have a permanent card (by marriage to US citizen) issued
Hi,I have a permanent green card (by marriage to US citizen) issued to me on 03/18/13.I would like to apply for US citizenship on my own (not thru marriage). Please let me know:1) When is the earliest I can put in an application?2) I am visiting India at the moment. When would I need to return to the US to fulfill physical presence requirement before applying?3) I am currently a HI resident, but will be moving to CA upon my return and will most likely become a CA resident. I'm assuming I can apply for naturalization in CA. What are the considerations I have to keep in mind around this?Any other relevant info would be appreciated.Warm regards,Amit

I am a naturalized lifelong citizen of the USA. If she can, how long after we marry can she expect to get the card? he 21 year old daughter, still in China, has taken ill and she wishes to go be with her but also wants to return to the USA.

SHe has an attorney but I am not impressed with him.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Those are pretty much the basics.

Married for 7 years with a Russian woman. Brought her over
Married for 7 years with a Russian woman. Brought her over to the US, supported her financially, helped her get her dentist's credentials accredited here, co-signed for college loans, made her beneficiary of my insurances, retirement pensions, the whole shebang! Last year, after graduating from university, she got a job and started to earn her own money. Still did not want to contribute to household expenses. Last month she moved out. I received an email from her mystery lover (a boyfriend from Russia) about her infidelity. She was planning to divorce me and get back with her Russian boyfriend. I feel used. She just wanted me for the immigration/citizenship.
I have an approved K1 petition, and am going over to Moscow
I have an approved K1 petition, and am going over to Moscow for the interview shortly. The mother is 41,and the daughter is 15. There is an issue with the father not wanting the child to come to the US.The parents are legally divorced, but in the divorce, no mention is made of child custody. The child lives with the mother full time, with visits from the father two times per year or so. He lives now far from the child. He occasionally sends support money.My questions:1. What rights does the mother have to bring the child with her?2. Can the father legally prevent the daughter from coming to the US?3. If the father can legally prevent her from immigrating, is there something that can be done legally by the mother to get full custody?Note: Please do not answer: "See/talk to a lawyer" If you cannot answer the above questions, please do not respond. I mention this as I have had this exact response before when asking legal question, but it doesn't help me.

I applied for naturalization I am concerned with my divorce before. While I was on the process of divorce living separately with my soon to be ex husband, I met someone then started dating which resulted to pregnancy while my divorce is still ongoing. Am I gonna be deported or denied based on a bad moral character?
