Legal Answers
Q. If I apply for an EB concurrent 485 while B2 extension 539 is pending, should I withdraw the 539 forms? Thanks!
A: Eligibility for concurrent filing aside, I would not recommended withdrawing the I-539 just in case your pending EB case is denied for any reason. If it is ultimately approved you can withdraw or the USCIS will deny the extension based on your approved I-485.
Q. I am on a tourist visa and so is my partner. Can we get married in Texas with photo IDs? We do not want status in the US
A: Yes, you are permitted to get married in the U.S, despite not having residency status. Please be sure to FIRST contact the court clerk's office in the county where you wish to get married to ensure that you are documentarily qualified for a marriage license in that state. Best of luck!
Q. I filed an affidavit of support for a family member. It has not been approved yet for a visa. How can I withdraw support
A: You must contact the USCIS office that is adjudicating the petition. Write a letter expressing your desire to withdraw your I-864. Send it express mail with tracking, and be sure to include the full name of the beneficiary you are sponsoring and the recipient number for the I485 application (if you have it).
