Legal Answers
Q. If I was sexually abused by my father at the age of 16 and I’m now 26, how could I press charges?
A: Well I think you should start with filing a police report in the county and state where the incident occurred.
Q. I'm a convicted felon in alabama but I got a letter stating I have been summonds for jury duty
A: OK there should be options that you can select to be exempt from jury duty. I believe one of the boxes that you can check on the form that you received refers to any past felony convictions. If that is the case, check the box, and then send the form in, and you should get an excuse.
Q. Applying for a Green Card for my mom under US citizen family sponsorship (daughter). Mom is currently out of US.
A: So if mom travels here on a visitor visa, she is only allowed to stay temporarily, and thus is not able to adjust status as that would be considered preconceived intent. She could always be sponsored by you if you are a US citizen over 21, and she could process at the US consulate in her country. The process takes about 18 months from the time that you file and then she could travel here on a green card and remain here permanently.
