Legal Answers
12 Questions Answered

Q. can i get a deal with migration of fbi?
A: We'd be happy to help you with this issue. Call our office at 334-356-7879.
Q. What age must a person be to have property listed in their name? Can a 16 year old legally be a landowner?
A: Yes, minors can own title to real property in Alabama.
Q. What options do I have if I'm trying to get married with someone from Mexico.
A: You best option is to seek a F1 visa, or "90 day fiance" visa. Talk to an immigration attorney about the forms you have to file and how long it will take.
Q. can a child of a U.S citizen with an expired visa get emancipated if his parent is abusive?
A: The short answer to the question is yes. But please seek the counsel of an experienced immigration attorney to help you do so.
Q. Is it legal for my mother to deport me, a 16 year old, against my will?
A: I highly doubt that in any instance your mother would follow through with such a threat. Regardless of whether you are experiencing some type of abuse at home, or if your own behavior has caused your mother to make such a threat, I recommend you speak with a school counselor or find another community resource for teens immediately to get some much needed help. Good luck.
Q. Obtained my permanent Residency through Marriage in 2013, and recently filed for naturalization, but getting a divorce
A: You may still be eligible to lift your conditions and then later for citizenship as long as you entered your marriage in good faith and can prove that you did so. But you should speak to an experienced immigration attorney, you may need to file additional paperwork to amend your application and provide additional documentation.
Q. My wife and I have job offers in Denver, we have a 2 year old daughter and we want to work and live in USA.
A: As it stands right now, despite all of the negative press, not too much has changed since President Trump took office, outside of the travel ban that is being hotly contested in many courts by many immigrant advocacy and civil rights groups. Don't let the negative press discourage you. If you have the opportunity to take a work based visa, go for it. But just make sure that you or your potential employer follows all of the necessary steps. You haven't given enough information here for us to know what kind of visa you may be eligible for. But if you are out of the country, the next best step is to have your potential employer visit an experienced immigration attorney that can help you all with the process.
Q. Can i get help if i have ruined my life in my country and i have an american child?
A: Children can file immediate relative petitions for their parents after they've turned 21 years of age. However, there are a lot of other facts missing from your post that may be relevant to your case, and you should speak to an experienced immigration attorney to see if you could qualify for anything like asylum, protective status, or parole.

Q. I arrived 2014 and I've not received my green card yet, on my passport I have a I-551 stamp, can I re-enter using it?
A: If your biometrics have been completed and your passport has not expired, your I-551 stamp is still only valid for one year after it was issued. I recommend that you find an immigration attorney who can inquire into your status.
