  • I am a U.S. citizen, and just turned 21. I would like to sponsor my parents for green cards; but as a full-time student my income is limited. Any options to still sponsor them?  Answer
  • A few years ago, my employer filed an H1B extension for me. My I-94 expired shortly after the petition was filed. Then, the USCIS denied the petition and I left the U.S. as quickly as I could (2 or 3 days after I learned of the denial). I am now applying for a B-1/B-2 visa. Do I have to disclose this info on my DS-160, or was my brief stay following the denial covered by a grace period?  Answer
  • I filed my I-485 based on the dates for filing chart. Earlier this month, the USCIS approved my I-485 and issued me a green card. However, my priority date is not yet current on the final action chart. May I still keep the green card?  Answer
