Q. I have a tourist visa, if I come to work with my name and information but with false insurance, can the government find
A: What you are planning is called visa fraud. I will explain: 1. When you applied for a visitor's B-2 visa its content specifically mentioned to state purposes of the trip truthfully. When you submitted the information at the end of that federal visa application there was a proviso for penalties for submission of false or frivolous information. That is already a reason to cancel your visa, 2. Also, you committed perjury by submitting a false document (insurance), which is a visa fraud. Another reason for a visa cancellation. 3. When you come to the U.S. you plan to engage in unlawful employment. Which is a visa violation and will also impact your future ability to come to the United States in the future, 4. There are various ways the U.S. Government uses to discover such violations, including social media, telephone and e-mail communications and posting like yours when they scrutinize a subject. But, there is a completely legitimate way for you to stay and work in the U.S. You may consult with us and we will provide you a legally accurate guidance how to initiate that lawful process.
Q. What happens if you get get charged with trespassing on a bench trail in Illinois
A: Without gathering more case information is is impossible for anyone to suggest the next court event. The facts are the case is a state Misdemeanor Class A, and it is still pending with the next court date in January of 2023. I recommend for the defendant discussing the case with a licensed, experienced criminal defense attorney to examine strong and weak case points in order to prepare defense case in chief.
Q. She applied for asylum when she were single, so when got married they gave her an Interview for asylum but suddenly…
A: First things first: 1. they (the U.S. Asylum Office) did not not deny her application. The application was REFERRED to the respective U.S. federal immigration court, 2. Any changes in the marital or adjustment of status eligibility situations must be amended to the present pending asylum case with the court, 3. Since you are a US Citizen your foreign national spouse is eligible to adjust based on a marriage to a USC, yet it will require exact legal and procedural steps to clear that hurdle. Start with a consultation with an experienced immigration attorney to receive more information of your immediate steps towards that result.
