Technically, you are seeking a lawyer because this is the immigration law category and you have asked a question. Anyone who answers you in this category is a lawyer. You are not asking us to represent you, but you are asking us legal questions that we can answer based on our expertise.

As far as having not filed a tax return, is that because you were not required to based on your income? Or was it from 2017 and it is not yet due until April 15, 2018?

What is the reason for having not filed a return?
