credit history can reflect where a person live and has lived in the past. Don't
know if the USCIS bothtehr to look into it if they have doubt about where you lived in the past.
But I am not sure if three big credit reporting agency allows USCIS to check or not. On N400 form, we do give our...
You have to be PR for 5 years to apply for citizenship. 3 years only if
you get your PR as yoiur citizen wife sponsored your GC. If you get your
GC by other means, Having been married to a US citizen for however longtime
If a PR stays outside the USA for more than 6 months, he is also considered
to seek admission when he return the USA. But I doubt he can define his admission date as the date of return after,say, 7 month.
It is not faster to get the citizenship thru a lawyer. It is processed on the first-come-first-serve basis . A lawyer can
only help you better prepare your case to file. You don't need
a lawyer if you have nothing complicated
One could haved entered USA many times. As long as it is on nonimmigration visa, each time is considered an admission. So don't know it is the latest or the earliest one that counts
I heard for certain purpose in INA 237, some section in INA 242 defined admission as the day one became PR even...
The key issue is for the purpose of INA 237 (2) (a) (C), how the USCIS interpret "after admission". Is it after you physically came to USA on nonimmigrant visa, or the after you became a PR. Some offenses are deportable defined by INA 237 (2) (a) (C) but not inadmissible defined by INA...
Not that simple . See the following quote: DV is a deportable offense but not inadmissible offense. That means you can apply for a green card
with a DV conviction. But once after you get the GC and get DV conviction, you may be deportable.
Under the INA, criminal convictions may make an...
This AR-11 has been required by law for a very very long time but
no one cares until after 9-11. An immigrant from Palestine was almost deported because of this.
Standard advice on this forum is to file AR-11 better later than never. I believe E-filingis allowed
If this is how it is interpreted, then it make a huge differences for those who did something removable but still not inadmissible before they got the GC as long as they disclose it in AOS applications.
If this is true, then I take back what I said before. But I do read from the internet that biometrics appointment letters ask you
to disclose if you commoiited any offenses and bring documents if Yes (e.g, http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080915180748AAoJWCu)
I don't think many...
I don't think one has a chance to avoid it anyway. During green card renewal I-90 biometrics appointment, you will be asked for past arrest/conviction record anyway.
If renewal greend card and citizenship application are equal risky, why not try
the later? If you get thru the former, you...
It depends where you are now. If a young alien still has strongties with
his home country in both career and family matters, I would suggest file now
and get over with it. Either you get citizenship or you get deported and be done with it. Going back to teh home country may be better than...
Deportable does not mean mandatory deportable. There are many posts
here about many getting their citizenship with such deportable offenses.
One big example is that failure to file AR-11 when moving is clearly defined as deportable offense even without a conviction but no one cares about...
How long will such bill take to pass or fail? If it takes less time than N-400 process, maybe one start filing now and hope the bill will pass by the time
of the interview.
Therer is also a risk maybe some other lawmakes willl propose a bill that is even harsher. So eitherway there is a...
