Legal Answers
211 Questions Answered

Q. I am a permanent resident and I want to know if I can married my boyfriend (who lives out of the country).
A: You can marry him while you are only a permanent resident and can in fact file for him while you are only a permanent resident. His case will be placed in the preference category line. After you naturalize, you can always "upgrade" it to "spouse of U.S. Citizen." As far as having him come to the U.S. with the express intent of filing an adjustment of status case, if he was doing so on some type of nonimmigrant visa for which it is not ok to have preconceived immigrant intent, then that would not be appropriate. You should schedule a consultation to discuss with an attorney possibilities, including, for example, an immigrant visa consular processing case based on an underlying petition for relative that you file for him after marrying him while you are only a permanent resident. Some firms, like mine, are offering telephone or online video (Skype / Zoom) consultations during the ongoing pandemic.
Q. looking for immigration attorney for help on my 751 application. I am 100% legal in the USA since 1999 i need help
A: As you can see from the responses, there are attorneys available to assist. Consider scheduling a consultation with an experienced immigration attorney who can not only listen to what your concerns may be, but who can also ask you a series of questions to determine the issues that may exist for you. During this COVID-19 pandemic, many firms, including mine, offer online video (e.g., Skype, Zoom) or telephone consultations.
Q. Fiance visa
A: Generally speaking, and assuming that you and your fiance(e) meet the requirements for the K-1 visa process, a fiance(e) based case would go faster than a case wherein you marry abroad. That is a generalization, and you should consider having a consultation with an experienced immigration attorney who can discuss the specific facts of your case with you and determine definitely what is likely the best way to proceed. Many firms, including mine, offer online Skype or Zoom consultations because of COVID-19 concerns and/or for those who may not be inside the United States. Congratulations on your engagement!
