Does a Divorce Complicate My Pending I-751 Removal of Conditions?

“My relationship is going south with my spouse. Can I get a divorce without affecting my status (I-751 pending)?” If you’ve already filed the removal of conditions, it’s not likely to affect anything. It would be rare that you would get an interview for that. If you did, of course, you’d have to be honest […]

“After a K1, why should someone apply for a 10 year green card instead of naturalization?” Before you can apply for a naturalization, you have to be a legal resident first for 3 years if you obtained your green card through marriage.

New Policy: Trump Admin Will Deny Rather Than Issue RFEs

“Why is the removal of conditions taking so long this year?” Everything is taking longer this year in regards to immigration, and it’s really because of the Trump administration. Wherever you’re at politically, elections matter. Right now we have an administration that is anti-immigration, and they campaigned on that so it shouldn’t be any surprise […]

Will USCIS or a U.S. Embassy Look at My Social Media?

“I’ve read they passed a bill on where they go into your social media after interview, which would prolong the process, and that’ll effect a lot of K-1 Visas and my fiance is from the Philippines.” The government has always had that authority to investigate pretty much anything. They already do a background check on […]
