Hello! this is great...

Hello! this is great i didn't know I could type in this chat feature

Lawyer's Assistant: The Immigration Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?

No I haven't .

Lawyer's Assistant: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Immigration Lawyer can help you best. Please give me a bit more information, so we can help you best.

Okay.. Well I am an american, and I am in a long distance relationship with my partner and he is a Mexican citizen living in Mexico City. I went to the Mexican Consulate in NYC earlier today (i live in new york state), and they told me I can't get a temporary resident visa as I need to be making tons of money and need pay stubs of the last 6 months. Look, I'm 22 I'm almost done with college, i don't have pay stubs!!! my mom has paid for it up to this point. In Mexico City, I want to obviously live with my partner and work at art museums there (i am graduating in may with a BFA in painting). I am wondering what I can apply to that is earlier for students to be there legally long term (at least 2 years).

Lawyer's Assistant: OK. The Immigration Lawyer will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Immigration Lawyer should know?

I am also wondering if it would just be easier to get married to him. He's my long term partner and we both have no objection.

Hello there --

-

Just Answer is a pay for services website and is staffed with actual licensed attorneys in the area of law you are seeking information about. None of the attorneys will answer your questions unless you agree to pay for their services. It appears that your question was posted at an ultimate cost to you of 38 dollars, which is quite modest considering the fact that it usually costs several hundred dollars for a consultation with a local immigration attorney in NYC.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.
