Our son lives in Morgantown. He used my husband's 2005 Jeep

Our son lives in Morgantown. He used my husband's 2005 Jeep throughout college and is now a permanent resident in WV. The car is still registered to my husband in NJ. We want him to transfer the title to our son. My husband plans to send the title, indicating "gift" on the back, so that he can transfer the title to WV and in his name. There is a legal issue with his license - can he register the car anyway, while waiting for his license? (We just moved to FL and are canceling our NJ auto insurance, so he will be without any until his issue is resolved. He does not plan to drive the car until then.) Thanks.JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: West Virginia, car is 11 years old.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not regarding our "shaking him loose" off of our liability. He had a DUI from 2 years ago, and is still waiting for reinstatement of his license. He hired a lawyer at that time, and I believe that as a first offense, some of the record of that (though I am not sure about that) is expunged... We want him to do the waiting and handling of that, but want to properly remove this car from my husband's name.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I've read that while a driver may think that all is "well" because no nasty letters arrive and the criminal record is "smoothed over" somewhat, it does not mean the DMV is on board with anything. We don't know if that is because his license was from NJ, while the ticket was in WV, or what...He walks to work, but clearly needs to move forward with his life.

My wife and I are British citizens but are US residents with

Hi. My wife and I are British citizens but are US residents with Permanent Resident Cards valid until 2019.We own property in Florida, file annual tax returns, and are subscribed to 'Obamacare'.We original took out the residency when we had a multinational business and were setting up and running a subsidiary office in Florida. Our head office was in the UK.We are both now retired and sold the business. One of our sons is also a US resident and lives and works permanently in Florida.We now tend to travel significantly, and only visit the USA for a few weeks for a couple of times per year.We are currently in Europe and have been out of the USA since April. We are likely to have been out of the USA for more than 6 months.We expect to return to the US in the fall for a few weeks, before returning to Europe for Christmas.Should we relinquish our Residency? What is the process for doing that? What are the consequences if we do? We wish to still visit the USA on a regular basis but for periods less than 3 months.

Confused about what to do about selective services as 30 yr

Confused about what to do about selective services as 30 yr old male.Just saw this link:https://www.sss.gov/Portals/0/PDFs/PrinterFriendly/USCIS%20Naturalization%20_%20SSS%20registration%20policy.pdfam going through adjustment of status by marriage to us citizen.Since I'm 30, the document seems to indicate there are benefits I'd lose if I didn't justify with the selective services ASAP. Should I talk to selective services before or after receiving the conditional permanent resident card?Or not at all?

I would appreciate help from an immigration lawyer. I am a

Hello. I would appreciate help from an immigration lawyer. I am a US citizen. My spouse was studying in the USA on a J-1 Visa from 2012-2014 (he was a Fulbright scholar). After he completed his studies we moved to his home country to fulfill his two year home residency requirement (as required by the J-1).Now, in 2016, I'm applying for his green card. His I-130 has already been approved. However I have a question about the I-864 (Affidavit of Support). While we were living abroad (and still are) I did not work and am still unemployed. My spouse is the main income provider of our household. However we have financial assets (money in bank accounts) that meet the 3X the 125% poverty guideline limit. The money in these accounts (both US and foreign) would easily be available in US cash within one year if needed. I also have bank statements from the previous 12 months to show activity in these accounts. My question is: is it possible to complete a form I-864 on the basis of assets of alone? I have no income as I am unemployed. My spouse is working but not in the US so I cannot use his income. However, as I stated we have enough assets to meet the 3X 125% poverty guideline limit as mentioned on the form instructions.
