Legal Answers
30 Questions Answered
Q. With the immigration suspension order, will it be a pause on processing I-130 applications filed outside the US?
A: Yes, due to COVID-19 there is a delay in the processing of most Immigration cases, with limited exceptions. If the referenced information does not suffice you can contact USCIS office. The general notice provided by USCIS is shown below.

"USCIS plans to begin reopening offices on or after June 4, unless the public closures are extended further. USCIS staff are continuing to perform duties that do not involve face-to-face contact with the public. However, USCIS will provide emergency services for limited situations."
Q. I filed an extension for my J1 visa but I got denied. Will it affect my application for AOS and petition in the future?
A: The denial of your J1 visa will not affect your future adjustment of status. Even if you overstay your time in the U.S. that will not affect your adjustment of status in the future when you get married to your boyfriend.

Bear in mind that until you adjust your status you will be considered an illegal person in the U.S. for immigration purposes.

As Svetlana pointed out, once you have a pending petition with USCIS, you will be allowed to remain legally in the U.S.
Q. Is a psychiatric inpatient capable of giving informed consent for shock therapy?
A: The answer to your question varies based on the state of mind of the patient at the time consent was given.

Informed consent is permission given with the knowledge of possible consequences.

If at the time consent was given the patient was unable to understand the information conveyed to him by the health care providers, then such consent is not informed, and is likely not valid.

As the legal spouse if you feel your spouse is not rational, you may contact the hospital to obtain the necessary information and sign the necessary documents for your spouse's treatment. The treatment is in a few days so there is still time to act.
