Legal Answers
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).
Q. My dad is american, I got my green card at 12, I lived 10 years and then I had to go, Could I derivate citizenship?
A: The answer will depend on a few things, including when your father became a citizen, the marital status of your parents, and your father’s presence in the U.S. It’s best to talk through scenarios with immigration counsel to discuss your options. Please feel free to contact my office. Best of luck!
Q. Hey I’m Moh, I was a student. I left the school for financial problems during Covid hit. My sevis has been canceled.
A: Assuming you qualify, once you are married, you would need to file for an adjustment of status, which is a multi-step process. Please contact immigration counsel to discuss specific requirements and costs associated with filing. Best of luck!
