21 Questions Answered

Q. If 5 siblings own real property and all five die without will who gets property
A: There are too many unanswered questions in your fact pattern to give a definitive answer. It would be best if you can see a real estate or probate lawyer to ask your question, so that the lawyer can get all relevant facts from you before giving you an opinion. There is no simple answer from what you have told us here.
Q. I’m ilegal in United state I’m have 18 years old my dad kick me out because he don’t want to have expenses with me
A: Honey I'm so sorry you're going through this. You should go to Catholic Social Services, if you can find one. If your dad has papers you may be able to get your green card through being a trafficking victim. You might be able to find help here: https://ccsww.org/get-help/specialized-services/ Good luck to you!
Q. Divorcing (found husband texting inappropriately) with an open i175 immigration case, what type of lawyer needed?
A: You need to get a divorce lawyer and make sure your divorce lawyer is either experienced in immigration issues or has an immigration attorney on call to help him/her through the landmines. Many divorce lawyers will not want to allege adultery because it is difficult to prove, and because of the short term of your marriage it might not make sense for your divorce lawyer to do so, financially speaking. However if you really would like to maintain your permanent resident status, it will be necessary not to be tempted to take an easy route, especially considering the likely increased costs associated. You need to make sure your divorce lawyer understands the necessity of keeping the record super clear that you were in the marriage for love and not for citizenship, and that you have been the wronged party. So get a very good divorce and immigration lawyer, both. The extra expense will be worth it if you want to stay.
Q. Can my partner and I legally get married ?
A: You can get married but it may not be the best thing to do depending on your circumstances. The best course of action is going to depend on facts you have not presented here. You really should make a consutlation appointment with a family immigration attorney.
Q. Is there a time limit that heirs of a property purchased for taxes on a deed can lay claim to that property?
A: Yes, and it can fluctuate under the facts of the particular case. You should speak to an attorney experienced in both Estates and Real Estate Tax Sales.
Q. In Alabama is it possible for someones name to be put on a deed to a house even if that persons name is not on the loan
A: You should speak to a lawyer, it can be a violation of your mortgage but it still may be possible to do.
Q. How to get land in my name after the people I bought it from died. There is no heirs
A: You may be able to file a claim for Adverse Possession. But you need to hire a real estate attorney to do this for you. These cases are very complex.
Q. After changing my passport and passport number, am I still going to be subject to the two-year rule?
A: You're still you, regardless of your passport number - and what you're proposing could be construed as fraud. Seek the advice of an experienced immigration lawyer. There are waivers available if you qualify. Please don't resort to any attempt at trickery.
Q. Can I apply to a K1 fiance visa on a student visa?
A: If you are in the country on a non immigrant visa, you are not eligible for a fiancee visa. However, you may be able to get married and adjust your status without getting a fiancee visa. You should check with an immigration attorney about your particular case to see if you can do this.
