Legal Answers
Q. My I-765 form was rejected 3 times because “the payment amount is incorrect or has not been provided” I’m applying based
A: You need to talk with an attorney ASAP. It sounds as if you are being rejected because something is missing. Don't submit a fourth time without at least talking with a lawyer who can look at all the documents and your specific situation. Justia has a lawyers directory and so does the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
Q. Can I lose my green card if I get divorced?
A: No you won't lose your green card if you get a divorce.
Q. How to transfer from visa to green card.how long will take the papers to finish.
A: You should talk with a lawyer as soon as possible. Your question has a lot of issues and so please check the directory on Justia or the American Immigration Lawyers Association for an attorney.
