This is where it gets to be so hard to write about, it's a long and detailed, perhaps I should call a local INS. Thank You.
Lawyer: Ely, Counselor at Law replied 8 years ago
Before you do, may I make a suggestion? Instead of calling them, GO to speak to an agent. What you have to do is to set an InfoPass appointment with a local USCIS officer here...http://infopass.uscis.gov/...and get all the info you need on this. They will be much more receptive than a disembodied voice on a telephone.

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
