Customer Question
Hi, I want to...

Hi, I want to ask a question or two about the travel ban. We've applied for a k-1 visa, and just received packet3. my fiance is from syria, so we are pretty sure we'll get denied at the interview. But with SCOTUS decision on the travel ban due in June, how can we delay the interview until then? Looking for suggestions.

Lawyer's Assistant: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Unfortunately, it is up to USCIS to set interviews. The only way to delay is for good cause, such as illness with proof from a doctor or by withdrawing the K-1 and then waiting and filing it again in May, which should get you time to see what the SCOTUS decides in June.

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.

Need help with immigration (gc) supplement J. Here is my
yes Here is my situation: We received our EAD in October 2014. Left the petitioner company after 180 days from approval. In September 2016, we opened an LLC in my spouse's name and my wife became a w2 employee in July 2017. I was employed at a mid-sized during this time. However i lost my job in April 2018. I discussed with my immigration attorney and she said that I could work as an employee for my company. So I started working as a w2 employee in our own company effective May 1st, 2018. This week I received RFE since my priority date will be current in July.My question is: 1. Can I continue to be an employee of our company and use that as my bona-fide employer? (Attorney suggesting against it since the company is owned by the spouse and has the same address as my residential address) 2. Or I need to become a 1099 contractor and mention self-employment in supplement J? - This is suggested by my attorney who filed my GC. However, another attorney is saying that this is only applicable for EB1 candidates. Not sure why she said that. Couldn't find anything relevant anywhere. 3. Or should I look for a job at another company? - The other consulting attorney is suggesting to use another employer and fill out the supplement j mentioning that this will be my employer once I get GC. … read more
