Legal Answers
Q. What are my options?
A: This is really more of a personal choice. Just don't accumulate too much overstay time.
Q. My dad got divorced, had no will, and passed away. His ex wife’s name is still on the house.
A: To evaluate this fact pattern, an attorney will need to look at your father and his ex wife's Deed. However, it sounds like she could own half or possibly even the entire property, and yes you are correct that she could evict you or petition a court for a sale of the house at any time (moratoriums due to the current pandemic permitting). You need to talk to an attorney and have him or her look at the Deed in order to find out exactly whether you have any rights to it at all.
Q. Naturalization with expiring conditional green card. Should I renew my green card/ remove conditions/ change/ etc?
A: You do need to have the conditions removed, but you can do so concurrently with a citizenship application. Go ahead and make the application and then call the 800 number to see if they will consolidate once you get your receipt for the 751.
