Q. if you got a dui 5 years ago can you still apply for a visa?
A: It may be the deportation more than the DUI that will cause problems. He would want to look into whether he was actually deported or whether he was granted voluntary departure. While a single DUI is usually not a grounds of inadmissibility (thus barring eligibility for a visa), some consulates are now adopting policies about DUIs being evidence of "habitual drunkenness, Cuidad Juarez being one of them. I would recommend he consult with an immigration lawyer about his options. And best of luck to him!
Q. a friend married on b2 to US citizen and return to home country . he back now how soon can he file?
A: He wait until at least 61 days after his entry to apply. However, he should speak to an attorney and make sure to discuss his most recent entry to make sure there are no issues. Best of luck to him!
Q. My husband signed a voluntary exit. & 3 months before had poss of marij >2oz . Can he still get a visa or greencard?
A: I would consult with an attorney right away, as soon as possible. He needs to be screened as soon as possible to see if he is eligible for anything, and if so, if there is a way to get his voluntary departure (presumably this is what you mean by "voluntary exit") vacated. If he does not have a conviction for a controlled substance offense and entered on a visa, he could possibly be eligible to adjust his status in the United States.
Q. I have just Married my husband and I need to speak with a lawyer to assist with the next steps are?
A: Congratulations! There are many attorneys on Justia who would be happy to set up a consultation to discuss next steps with you, including what income can be used for the affidavit of support.
Q. Green Card, German wife, two minors with US passports, living in Germany
A: So long as your wife is eligible, you may petition for her for a green card. It is a multi-step process that includes 1) filing a petition with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), 2) completing an application online and sending documents to the National Visa Center, and 3) an interview at the consulate. The process takes months to complete, so if you are planning to come to the U.S. next year, now is the perfect time to start the process.
Q. What options do I have if I'm trying to get married with someone from Mexico.
A: First of all, congratulations! In terms of petitioning for your fiancé, you mainly have two choices. You could get married in Mexico and do a spouse visa petition, or you could petition for him as a fiancé and marry in the U.S. There are variations to the two processes and I would definitely recommend speaking with an immigration lawyer. Kudos to the two of you for wanting to go about this process the right way.
Q. My question is if I not filled I-765 and I-131 can she get green card earlier than filling these 2 forms.
A: There is no downside to filing an I-765 and I-131. They are actually adjudicated as separate petitions completely, so it should not affect your I-485. Good luck!
Q. My girlfriend lived in the US illegally as a kid but left before she was 18 Will that keep her from getting a green card
A: The answer to this question depends on whether she entered the U.S. multiple times without permission and how long she stayed each time.
Q. Who grants voluntary return?
A: Almost always CBP (Customs and Border Patrol) because voluntary return is almost always granted at the border. ICE used to grant VR in certain circumstances several years back, but I have not heard of it happening recently. Voluntary departure (which is different than voluntary return) can be granted before removal proceedings are instituted by ICE, or by an immigration judge.
