Q. can a j2 visa holder here with his mom get married to a citizen?
A: Hello Sir or Ma'am, J1 and J2 Visa Holders may have the 2 Year Home Residency Requirement, that would prevent the ability to get a Green Card, unless the requirement/restriction is waived. The Visa Restriction should be looked into first, and if it exists on the J1/J2 Visa, this usually affects "timing and plans." Crimes may or may not affect a Green Card Filing, it depends on the specifics surrounding the crime. Regardless of the dismissal, a copy of the police, court, and prison records are 100% required to be provided to the US Government in the Immigration Filing. Marriage is possible between a US Citizen and a Foreign National. Just comply with the state's marriage requirements. Respectfully.
Q. I live in North Carolina and wanted to know if my parents can become citizens of the US, if i am enlisted NationalGaurd
A: Hello Sir or Ma'am, You would have to speak with an Immigration Attorney to fully assess your parent's options, whether immigration violations could cause some complications, and to determine whether there is a risk of deportation. I do not know the status of your parents. If they are Lawful Permanent Residents, then "citizenship" may be possible. If they have "no lawful status," then they may be able to apply for "lawful permanent residence" (aka green card). Being a service member does provide another filing option for your parents. However, you should have a meeting with an Immigration Attorney regarding your parents' filing options. Respectfully.
Q. my husbands mom is trying to get there citizenship but the lawyer said he needs our tax papers in order. Is this normal?
A: Hello Sir or Ma'am, I do not know if "citizenship" means Naturalization or Lawful Permanent Residence. It is a common confusion in my office with prospective clients. So, I will provide an answer for both possibilities. Tax Documents are normal requirements for Naturalization and for Lawful Permanent Residence (aka Green Card) Filing. In Naturalization, the applying immigrant may add tax documents to show residence in the United States and the fact that taxes had been paid. In a Green Card Filing, a petitioner, household member, and co-sponsor would need to provide tax documents to prove sufficient annual income to sponsor the immigrant. Respectfully.
