My girlfriend is Chinese, overstayed her tourist visa, now
My girlfriend is Chinese, overstayed her tourist visa, now has political asylum pending. She has SS# ***** social security card. So she is legal and can stay till asylum resolves. Question - if we got married would that hurt her. The issue is I am 51, been married 4 times. She is 37 married once (actually twice, but to the same man). she is married now, and they filed asylum together as a family. The fear is that a marriage to me would not appear legit (even though it is and we can prove it in the traditional ways) but my 4 prior marriages dont help. Any thoughts?

While it's not 100% his field, but his skills and personality would be useful, and anyone i have hired in last 7 years to do this did not work out.My questions are:a. What are my options of doing that.b. If he is thinking of applying for a refugee status in the US, will that hurt that process in any way.c. Anything else i should know about?Thank you.

THIS QUESTION IS FOR GUILLERMO SENMARTIN: is a national of
THIS QUESTION IS FOR GUILLERMO SENMARTIN: Fred is a national of El Salvador and was granted TPS in 2001; he has since renewed his EAD every year to date, and his latest EAD expires 3/9/2018. His category is A12. In 2002, Fred married an LPR and she made an application for adjustment for him; his wife and he were scheduled for an adjustment interview in 2005, buy by then they had split up and did not attend the interview. In 2008 they divorced. Is there any basis, now, by which Fred might invoke permanent residency eligibility because he was abandoned by his wife back in 2005? Is there any other application that Fred might be eligible for, for permanent residence? How long might Fred expect to continue being granted TPS status? He's been granted TPS for a total of 16 years now.
After reviewing an I-90 renewal application with a client,
for Guillermo:After reviewing an I-90 renewal application with a client, the client insists that he was not in deportation proceedings as I indicated in Part 3 #4. The client entered the country illegally and immediately applied for political asylum. As his case was pending for 2 years, and then an immigration judge acknowledged his marriage and terminated the proceedings. Does this automatically mean he was in deportation proceedings because he applied for political asylum and was seen before the immigration judge?
I am a Brazilian citizen that lives permanently and legally
Hello,I am a Brazilian citizen that lives permanently and legally in the USA. I applied for Political Asylum and my asylum was granted in December of 2010. A little over a year after that I adjusted my status to Lawful Permanent Resident (Green card holder). That application was done and my green card was issued in May of 2012. (However, because the one year I was under asylee status also counts as residence, mt green card shows "permanent resident since May of 2011" . In September of 2012 I went back to Brazil for 2 weeks because of a family emergency. I'm the only son of divorced parents and my maternal grandmother had cancer on her eyes. I went back to Brazil for 2 weeks, stayed in my house all the time... I am very attached to my maternal grandmother since she was the one who raised me, my mother being a single mom and a working mom to support the house was barely home when I was growing up.Now, May of 2016, I applied for my american citizenship, form N-400. I am a little concerned though, because of this trip to Brazil and because my green card was issued through political asylum ( I do have the code AS6 on my green card) .I do have a doctors note stating my grandmother's health condition at the time... and I do have a letter from my mother stating that she paid for my travel expenses and that I stayed home all the time and the only reason for my trip was because of my grandma's health condition.That was my only trip to Brazil and my only trip outside outside of the USA since 2010...My questions are very simple.... Do I have a REAL (not theoretic) risk of getting my citizenship denied? Can they give me a hard time during the interview even though I have proof of the reason why I traveled? What are the chances in % of getting my citizenship case approved or denied? And in case citizenship is denied, can they cancel my greencard and can I re-apply in the future?

I have two questions regarding my pending asylum application.
Hello, I have two questions regarding my pending asylum application. First of all, I would like to mention that I do not have a lawyer. I filled out the application by myself as I felt that no help was needed at the time.I'm an international student. I arrived to the US in August 2014. My visa is valid through 2019. I traveled back to my home country in February 2015 and spend around three weeks there.By the end of 2015, it became clear to me that LGBT situation in my home country (Tunisia) has deteriorated, as internation media started reporting multiple arrests of students based on a law that criminalizes homosexuality. It was also reported that they were subjected to involuntarily medical examination to confirm their homosexuality (which was considered as torture by HRW).I felt the need to apply for asylum even though I'm currently in-status (valid I-20) and my visa is valid until 2019. I applied for Asylum on March 11th 2016, (within one year following my last arrival to the U.S), based on well-founded fear of persecution.My questions are as follow:1. Did I apply for asylum in a timely manner? Or should I have applied one year after my first arrival? (My fear of persecution was not well-founded back in 2014 due to a lack of reports about LGBT situation in Tunisia.)2. My passeport is about to expire. I need a valid passeport as an ID for multiple reasons, such as receiving money via Western Union, signing lease contract etc..I've read that applying for passeport renewal may result in asylum denial.However, in my case, my asylum is not political asylum. It's a fear of being imprisoned in my home country when authorities discover my sexual orientation. Tunisian government does not revoke passeports of LGBT convicts, it sentences them to imprisonment. Just because they will renew my passeport, doesn't mean that they won't arrest me if discovered to be gay in my home country. So I'm still confused as to whether my passeport renewal would mean that my fear of persecution is not genuine in my case.I have not renewed my passeport yet. So if you could, please advise me in regards ***** ***** issue, so that I can make up my mind. Thank you in advance.
