4 Questions Answered
- Q. Which visa should my husband apply for?
- A: Your fact pattern is sketchy? What are you trying to achieve? If you just want to visit (any country for that matter) and you were denied a vistor's/tourist visa--then there's nothing more; other than seeing if you can re-apply in the near future with more concrete proof that you will return to the home country??
- Q. How can i avoid a 3 or 10 year ban after overstaying a visitor s visa to spend time with my LPR husband?
- A: Since you entered lawfully (with a visa), you can always apply for a waiver if it ever becomes necessary...Nonetheless, you should have your LPR spouse petition for you, i.e., I-130 and eventually adjust status. Since spouse is LPR, you are not in the highest preference category; which means your case (by time you are able to adjust status with approved immigrant visa) will take a bit of time. And, no work permit available (can't work on B1/2 visa) until you are able to adjust status.
- Q. Hello, This question might sound really strange to you. Is it possible to block someone's I-130 petition?
- A: An I-130 confers no benefit and only confirms that there is a bona-fide marriage or other direct relationship, i.e, siblings, parent-child, etc. So, what's to block? Those predicate facts are true or false... Nonetheless, petitioner does not have to sign; does not have to file I-130--but if already approved by USCIS, petitioner does not have to sign-off on AOS/I-485. or AOS/I-864. If marriage or other relationship is fraudulent, petitioner can notify USCIS via letter--assuming I-130 has already been filed.
- Q. Would a unemployed US citizen run into issues marrying visa student. (Extra info)
- A: Eventually, you will need to complete Form I-864 Affidavit of Support. If your income doesnt meet the threshold, you can include a co-sponsor who will have to show the necessary minimum income by way of tax documents/w2's etc.
