A friend of mine obtained a K-1 visa to come to the US. Just
A friend of mine obtained a K-1 visa to come to the US. Just before she was going to come, the groom gave her a contract that he insisted she sign. She does not want to sign the contract because of the terms that she says takes away a lot of her rights. My question is can she still come to the US on this K-1 visa for 90 days and at least maybe visit me and then return to Ukraine before the 90 days?

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 They say it will be withdrawn with no misrepresentation finding and it is better not to introduce any new evidence.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?

Second opinion] - Find out alternate to green card for wife of US citizenSituation:- I am filling for US naturalization and should be US citizen by end of February, 2017.- My wife is Indian Citizen.- We both plan to live in USA till end of 2019 and then settle in India.- After 2019, we both plan to visit USA once in every 2-3 years for meeting friends and family and for tourism.Question:- Should I apply for Green Card for my wife or is there a special kind of visa available where she can stay and work in USA till 2019. My understanding is that if we apply for GC for her than she has to spend time in USA to show that she intended to live in USA otherwise her GC will be cancelled. And also, after 2019 if her GC is revoked can she get non-immigrant visa or some other kind of Visa to travel with me?

We need clarification regarding the K1 visa process
I am an American man engaged to a Canadian woman. We find the K1 visa process very discouraging (have not applied yet). We understand that we would not even be allowed to visit each other during the waiting period. Is there a better solution? What if we got married in a third country, say, the Bahamas? Could she live with me as a non-immigrant resident while we wait for a permanent visa?We have nothing pending with USCIS.We met online in May of this year. She just concluded a two week visit to the states, and is now back in Canada.
Judith,, a S. Korean working in Singapore. Here's my
Hi Judith,My name is ***** ***** S. Korean working in Singapore.Here's my situation. My boyfriend (Spain) has obtained a researcher position at MIT, got his J1 visa in September, and now already in the US.In the meantime, I have obtained B1/B2 (fyi I'm already eligible for ESTA, so there was no need for it, if it was simply to visit him temporarily from time to time), hoping a 6-month stay at US would suffice to find an employer to sponsor my H1B (or F1) visa, and so that I can stay with my sweetheart in the states, still being independent.While the Visa interview at the embassy, I told them I was going to visit my "friends" in the US + attend some job training courses + meet some folks in Start-up work which is relevant to what I do.Then, I realized recently that obtaining a sponsoring job in the US is not as easy as in Singapore (I work in Tech / Marketing, 6 yrs of experience). And wondering whether we should rather get married & get J2 for me, so that I can minimize the time taken for me to start working again. We're both extremely happy to get married with each other, but it's just that we haven't had a chance to prepare anything.. so trying to see if the "paperworks" should be done & how.And there are some pre-defined travel plan as well.19 Oct: Me flying to US (from Singapore, my current country of residence)Mid Dec - Mid Jan: Europe and S. Korea for Christmas & family functions, both of usMid Jan: Back in the US, both of usHere go my questions:1. For employers to issue H1B, is it always to apply in April & obtain in Sep? Are there companies who have some in spare & issue to future employees? (or is it just extremely rare?)2. IF we do get married2-1. I know by research the cleanest option would be getting married AND obtaining J2 before entering to the US, but we don't want to spend $$ to support our 2 places in 2 countries (we used to live together). So.. Is it a good idea to get married outside of US BEFORE I enter US with B1/B2, then enter with B1/B2 and change the status?2-2. What should I tell the border control officer? Visiting my "friends"? (which is not entirely false)2-3. If I enter first with B1/B2, can we marry in the US territory? Do we need to wait for some time to avoid the opinions of suspicion? And.. should I mention anything about intention of getting married to my boyfriend who's already in the US?2-4. Or.. is it just better, IF I were to enter with B1/B2 first to US, then we should travel somewhere else to get married? (or wait for Dec until we go to our home countries for Xmas etc)Thank you so much for reading my long questions & appreciate in advance your help!Cheers,Sooyoung
My fiancee and I successfully applied for an i-129F/K1 visa
Greetings,My fiancee and I successfully applied for an i-129F/K1 visa last year. I am American, my fiancee Brazilian. She had her exit interview scheduled for January 2016 but did not go, as we thought we would try life here in Brazil. I withdrew our application. However, now we are thinking US is a better option.I know I have to re-file the paperwork. This will be my third filing overall, second for her, so I know too that I have to request a waiver. (My previous fiancee was also Brazilian--back in 2007--but she, too, was approved and did not perform the interview). We are both here in Rio at the moment. We want to come back to the US, and she has a tourist visa, no criminal history, etc. We are thinking that, if last time was any indication, that the allotted time on her tourist visa would allow us to stay in the US until she has to come back to Rio for the interview, granted approval from USCIS. However, the last time she entered the US, she was held for second screening. It was very unpleasant for her. She is worried that she won't be let back in the country. I want to reassure her, but I can't guess what immigration will do. Any peace of mind for her would be fantastic.
