Hello my name is ***** ***** I am delighted to answer your questions today. I have 35 years experience as an immigration lawyer.B1/B2 R just means it is a "regular" visitor visa with no special restrictions.Yes, your mother may go to visit Mexico but she will not reset her 6 month period of authorized stay When she goes to Mexico she will return and still have the same date of departure she received when she entered the US originally.So she cannot use a trip to Mexico to buy her additional time in the US>I see this is the first time you are using JA and I am eager to make this a positive experience for you. Please ask follow-up questions if my answer is not clear.Of course, I am sure you understand your positive rating is very important to me as we are not on salary and that is how we receive compensation, you choosing a smiley face, but more importantly, I want you to come back to the site for all your answers from over a 100 categories of experts!In the future, you may begin your questions with “FOR JUDITH” and I will be your personal immigration expert.Judith

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
