Legal Answers
Q. Is form i-824 a must to get to the NVC, or is it just a way of expediting?
A: Hello, Form I-864 is a requirement when adjusting status in the US. If you would have chosen the consular process in your I-130, you would have to submit the I-864 directly to the NVC. In either scenario, the I-864 is required.
Q. My husband is applying for Tps and work permit we are married but filing for divorce . Will that affect divorce?
A: Filing for divorce will not affect the TPS/EAD applications, nor the divorce process. If he qualifies for TPS he should apply. Best wishes to both.
Q. I am a US citizen an wants to file for my Dad, a widower. He had remarry once (wife died) since his and my mom's divorce
A: When you petition a relative, part of the process requires the beneficiary to show the civil status. That includes current marriage and all previous termination of marriages. Just make sure to get certified copies of all documents.
