I dont want memebership only only one time pay
Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo Senmartin, Immigration Attorney replied 2 years ago

That's fine. As long as you did not click on the subscription, you should only be charged for this one set of questions. So was he was named himself on the I-140 or I-130, or he was a derivative? How long was his trip out of the U.S.?

Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo Senmartin, Immigration Attorney replied 2 years ago

What do u u think .?
Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo Senmartin, Immigration Attorney replied 2 years ago

Ok. This is tricky. I would need specific dates:

1) When was his first entry into the U.S.?

2) When was he excluded (sent back)?

3) When did he re-enter the U.S.?

Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo Senmartin, Immigration Attorney replied 2 years ago

Please relax. This is a complicated issue and I have to do some research on it. What state do you and your spouse live in?

Ask Your Own Immigration Law Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Va.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Boss filed in 96.during the clinton.pres.boss Didnt finish papers. But there in system I think. Caught in 99.crosing back to usa a was present in usa on dec 2000.ok I read again in a few bk minutes.
Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo Senmartin, Immigration Attorney replied 2 years ago

Ok. Now I have to do even more research. You see, the different appeals court are in conflict in regards ***** ***** issue. Take a look at this link:

http://www.ilw.com/articles/2006,0328-wheeler.shtm

If you lived in, or you moved to CA, OR, WA, AZ, MT, ID, NV, AK, HI, then he would be eligible for 245(i). I will do some research for you about VA which is the 4th circuit. But why would you be afraid to use the I-601A if he has nothing negative in his background? You just don't think you can show the hardship necessary?

Ask Your Own Immigration Law Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Because lawyers say he entered again in 99. Cancels the waiver601a, we were approved. Maybe a foia help?
Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo Senmartin, Immigration Attorney replied 2 years ago

You got a pre-approval of the I-601A? Was it disclosed that he re-entered illegally after being excluded?

Ask Your Own Immigration Law Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
We are already approved uscis approved the 601a
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
We sent in the extreme waiver it was approved.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Now if he shows he lived here before and left usa a before this time if he leaves usa againwaiver no good .?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
If he leaves usa for mexican intervieew we have waiver already , but afraid becausehe left in 99 too.was
Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo Senmartin, Immigration Attorney replied 2 years ago

Ok. Please read through that article so that you understand what's going on. I did a little more research, but I cannot find where the 4th Circuit (that covers Virginia) follows either the 9th Circuit decision or the 10th Circuit decision. Legal research is expensive and not something that is covered by this service. So from what I can tell, you have the following options in regards ***** *****(i):

1) You move with your spouse to CA, OR, WA, AZ, MT, ID, NV, AK, HI and then once residing there around 6 months or more, I would file the I-485, I-485A, I-212, etc. and he should be able to qualify and not have to leave the U.S.

2) Hire an attorney locally to do the research in the 4th Circuit law and see if the 4th Circuit follows the 9th Circuit. If they do, then you can file where you live. If they do not, then I would not file unless you are willing to appeal a negative decision (which is costly). The 4th Circuit might be waiting for such a case to be able to decide if they will follow the 9th Circuit or the 10th Circuit or make their own interpretation. There is no guarantee that it will go your way.

I wish I had better news for you, but at least you have an option that should work.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions and there is no additional charge. Also, should you need to chat on the phone, private email or need help reviewing documentation, I am happy to do so for a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested in these – I am happy to give you more details! When we are done, if you would be so kind as to leave a positive rating for my service, I would sincerely ***** ***** You can do that by clicking on the 3rd, 4th or 5th stars if you see them, or the smiley faces if you see them. You can even ask additional questions without additional charge even after leaving a positive rating. Thank you for your understanding.
