Legal Answers
20 Questions Answered

Q. How I can travel to the states while my green card revoked
A: We can get you a B-2 visa.
Q. Can i move back to h4 ead from h1 just with change of status?
A: Yes you can do a change of status to H-4. You do need to be aware of any presidential proclamations in June or July which may terminate EAD authorization for H-4. That is a possibility according to the recent news and the White House.
Q. My I-485 was denied because I didn’t file I-864 along with it. In the denial letter it says Im not allowed to appeal.
A: Best option in your case is reapply. We give you a substantial discount because you already spent so much time and the fees. Your I-130 fee does not need to be paid again . We would need federal income taxes from your wife including any W-2 and a recent paycheck. If she is not working you will need a joint sponsor.
