My ex and I met at the end of 2010 and married on the following year. Back them, his immigration status was not legal and, a few months later, we started the process of obtaining his (and his children's) permanent residency.The temporary green card was granted at the end of 2011 but, within a year, things started to go south in our relationship and we also started to grew apart from one another until we decided to call it quits in 2014.This last same year, he received a letter stating that there were no sufficient evidence (documents) to support the marriage – but, we were already separated and I just moved on with my life.Now, he has re-married and trying to pick up where he left on his green card processing and his attorney has contacted me and asked to submit a bona fide marriage affidavit.I wonder if I give him such document I would be called to a hearing or something like that.I really don't want to cause him (or his children) any damage but I definitely do not want to be dragged back in into his life.Can you please advise me on this?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FLJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I am talking to youJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I think that's it

I am an American. My husband and I are working on a trust

I am an American. My husband and I are working on a trust for our seven year old and are naming a Guardian. We want to name our friend who lives on Canada and his wife. Will there be too many legal issues to do this? I also need to mention that he is a Canada permanent resident not quite a citizen yet. He also left the US after failing to get a green card. He had overstayed his visa but was never formally deported.

We live in Palmdale, CA. My son lives with my parents in San

We live in Palmdale, CA. My son lives with my parents in San Jose when college is in session. But he comes home during breaks and his permanent address is still my house. My son was pulled over driving my parents car back to their house from break. The officer noticed the car was registered in San Jose but his drivers license had a Palmdale address. My son said he was going "home". Meaning back to my parents for college. So the officer gave him a ticket for having the incorrect address on his license.I believe he should keep my address on his license since this is his permanent address. Is this correct and if so what should he do about the ticket?

My husband and I have been married years. I am a US-born

My husband and I have been married for 18 years. I am a US-born citizen and he is a New Zealand citizen. He has been a permanent resident of the US since August 2000. He owes quite a bit of child support in New Zealand, after his former wife went to court, with no notice, and had it raised to the highest level possible. He had already given her the house, paid the mortgage, paid for many other things, and paid child support since 1996. If he applies for citizenship will he be turned down?

I am currently unemployed and about to start a new business.

I am currently unemployed and about to start a new business. I will set up a consulting company in Indiana for this. The first project will be a 2 year duration overseas assignment that will have me and my wife out of the country for extended periods of time with a few trips back to the US each year to check on things.I'd like to rent my home while I am traveling. I will work with a Property Manager and CPA on the realestate/financial/tax implications of doing this but, I am very unclear about LEGAL aspects of this. My biggest question is one of mailing address and legal residence status in Indiana. What can I do about a mailing address to preserve residency and receive all of my official business and personal mail? Are there other legal ramifications of doing this?

My friend wants to apply , and she has been a permanent

My friend wants to apply for naturalization, and she has been a permanent resident for over 40 years.In approximately the year 1976, she tried to help her SISTER enter the U.S. illegally, and was caught by CBP and a record of that action was made at the time.Later in approximately the year 2000, she applied for Naturalization and hadn't mentioned on the naturalization application that she tried to help her sister enter the U.S. previously in 1976. Then this fact came out in the interview, because it was on their records. So the USCIS denied her naturalization application at the interview, because she hadn't been truthful on the application, and they said she could reapply after waiting 5 years. Now she wants to reapply at this time, and thus provide the 1976 alien smuggling information on the applicationHowever, should she apply? Is the alien smuggling going to be a bar? The crime was before Nov. 29, 1990, and I don't know if different rules applied then. Would those (if any) previous laws before 1990 allow her to now naturalize?
