  1. hello. My name is adnan and I left a message here two days ago but didn’t receive any reply yet. I applied for the US citizenship for my parents and got the application rejected because They said:
    The check amount is incorrect or has not been sent .
    I also applied for the fee waiver as well. Everything I sent seemed correct to me. All the forms were signed, dated and all the particulars were filled out, I don’t really know what caused my application to be rejected. so please help me with that. Thanx.

  2. This is the Third time I’m trying to get help from you guys but each time all I get is the confirmation through my e-mail and that’s it. I’ve asking for help with the citizenship application that got denied because they said I didn’t send the correct amount of check. But I applied for the fee-waiver. Can u please help me with my question.

      Dear Sir:

      Consulate Processing
Consulate Processing must be completed. This allows the petition to first be sent to the National Visa Center, and then the appropriate documents and package to go to the U.S. Consulate or Embassy. If done correctly, you will be able to enter as a Lawful Permanent Resident and will be in the U.S. in less than one year. Of course the time might be a bit less or more depending on the backlog of the U.S. Consulate or Embassy and whether or not a Waiver of Inadmissibility is needed.  
 
Attorney Fees (Filing Fees and Costs not included)
The total Attorney Fees will be $3,500.00 for both parents.

      Down Payment
      Normally we take 50% down and then the balance can be paid monthly until paid in full. We accept all forms of payment included debit and credit cards, Western Union and Money Gram. Please let me know if you are interested in proceeding and we can start on your case immediately.

      Should you have further questions, you can e-mail me back or call my office at 562-495-0554.

  3. I have a big fund account in Bank of America in US because I write to Swiss government asking help for the education of my children and they grant my request but unfortunately I can not access the funds because I had not been there and I have no money in going there.What is your e-mail address Sir?

  4. ATTY. BRIAN LERNER ;

    MY MOTHER IS 77 YRS OLD, A GREEN CARD HOLDER FOR THE LAST 4 1/2 YEARS. I’M IN US SINCE 1993 (TNT) AND SINGLE (55 YRS. OLD). PERSONALLY, I HAVE NO PETITION OF ANY KIND SINCE 1993. HOWEVER, IF SHE CAN FILE A PETITION FOR ME AND SHE DIES BEFORE THE PETITION APPROVAL, WOULD THAT MEAN MY PETITION WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY REVOKED ? WHAT ARE MY CHOICES TO QUALIFY IF THAT HAPPENS, IF ANY ?

    WHAT IS CANCELLATION OF REMOVAL IN RELATION TO MY CASE ?

    THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.

    JULIE

    • Dear Julie:

      We should see if there are any other options for you. However, if the petition is filed and she dies, you can do a Humanitarian Reinstatement.

      Humanitarian Reinstatement
      Unfortunately, when the petitioner dies in a family petition, the petition itself is automatically terminated. The only way to address this situation would prepare a Humanitarian Reinstatement. This is a request that is willing to allow in essence a request to move forward even though the petitioner has died. We would prepare the attorney cover letter, declarations, affidavits, supporting documentation and all other relevant evidence. Afterwards, we submit to the appropriate governmental unit for decision.  If successful, then the same priority date will exist and the beneficiary will have have to wait multiple years more for another petition or be without any petition at all after waiting numerous years. 
      Attorney fees (fees and expenses not included) 
The total attorney’s fees will be $ 2,500.00.

  6. Hello, could you please answer a question for me? If someone has been deported out of United States for entering illegally but have a american spouse an children, do you think they have a chance of becoming legal in United States?

  7. How much you charging for provisional waiver?

    • It is not just the Waiver, but also Consulate Processing.

      Consulate Processing and Waiver of Inadmissibility

      In this particular case, first the Consulate Processing must be completed. This allows the petition to first be sent to the National Visa Center, and then the appropriate documents and package to go to the U.S. Consulate or Embassy. This would be the basic procedure whereby the petitioner in the United States submits a petition to allow the beneficiary to come into the United States as a lawful permanent resident. Generally speaking, from the time we submit the Consulate Processing until the interview at the U.S. Consulate or U.S. Embassy, the time is around one year.

      A Waiver of Inadmissibility will have to be obtained. The procedure for this will be that the Waiver will be able to be submitted to the USCIS inside the U.S., rather than outside the U.S. Additionally, once the regulations are finalized, it will be able to be submitted PRIOR to leaving the United States and if approved, a Provisional Waiver will be issued. In this case, upon exiting the U.S., you would not have to wait years for adjudication of the Waiver as the hope is that is already approved and it would simply be a matter of having the Consulate Processing interview and returning.

      This is an application that will include a legal brief, forms, documents, exhibits, declarations and other evidence. My firm can prepare the entire waiver, and attach all of the necessary documents. It will take several months for the decision, and if done correctly, there is a good chance of an approval. The Waiver essentially makes the crime or ground of ineligibility disappear so that entry or re-entry will be allowed into the U.S. Please note that the Waiver is the critical part of this application, and unless approved, there cannot be any other petition that will allow entry into the U.S. Therefore, the Waiver must be prepared with significant supporting documents. 

      This provisional waiver will be submitted here in the United States while we await further processing of the Consulate Processing. Thus, while the beneficiary still must eventually exit the United States, there will hopefully be an approval of the Provisional Waiver. Keep in mind that this Waiver applies only to unlawful presence inadmissibility issues and no other grounds of inadmissibility.

      For your reference, I have made a video on this subject. You can view it at the following URL:

       
      In order to prepare the Consulate Processing and Waiver of Inadmissibility, the cost is as follows:

      Attorney Fees (Filing Fees and Costs not included of about another $1,000)

      The total Attorney Fees will be $4,500.00.

  10. Hi, I came here with a J1 visa with 2 yr does apply, and now I am out of status for 2years, How can I apply for a temporary visa? Need your help. Applied for waiver got denied.

    • At this point, I need to know why the Waiver was denied. You cannot simply apply for another status when subject to the 2 year foreign residency requirement.

      • Sorry it was not denied but pending due annulment on process, they can not release the waiver because they said there is no divorce in my country. Therefore, I will need an annulment not divorce. The process in my country is so slow. Is there any remedy to this? need your help.

  14. Hi,

    I am a beneficiary in F3 petition filed by my father with priority date of June 2003. Recently my father, who was the petitioner, died due to heart failure in USA (He was a US citizen). When he was sick in April 2013, I applied for US temporary visa in April 2013 in US Embassy in Dubai (my residence location) which went to administrative delay and still in process. In this regard, I have a few questions which I would like to ask you and appreciate if you could provide your valueable opinion. Following are the questions:

    1) As per my research, since my father died, some other US citizen who is not my immediate relative can sponsor me in which case the priority date and the category will remain the same. Is that correct?

    2) I applied the temporary visa in April 2013, which is still in process, what implication this would have on the immigration petition.

    3) I live in Dubai due to my job but I am Pakistani by nationality and my petition will go to the US embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan once the priority date is current. Do I need to inform US embassy in Pakistan about it or the US Naturalisation Department in USA.

    4) In your opinion, how long will it take further before my priority date (June 2003) will get current.

    5) How can you assist in this regard and how much will you charge for all this.

    I appreiciate your prompt response in this regard and look forward to discuss the way forward.

    Regards,
    Abdul Rehman

  15. Hi Brian, I will make it short and thank you in advance. I have been deported for life in 2000 for felony GTA ( no violent crimes ) after a year if incarceration. At the time I was just 20 living with my parents in California and a green card holder ( parents are now US citizens ). When I came to Europe I had no place to go, I grew up in L.A. after emigrating there with my parents in the late 80’s. Today I have beautiful home, a lovely wife and successful business career here in the EU but would love to regain my permanent US resident status, eventually a citizen Thanks again! John.

    • Dear John:

      Based upon the information you have given, it is necessary to do criminal relief.

      Criminal Relief
      The U.S. Immigration laws are very strict. In this particular case, the past crime is preventing you from going forward with obtaining any immigration benefits. In fact, in a deportation in this type of matter, it could very well result in deportation for life without any possibility of coming back. It is never easy to obtain criminal relief, but it is the only realistic chance that exists. We file the necessary paperwork in order to try to get the conviction vacated or reduced so that it is not an aggravated felony. A Supreme Court case Padilla vs. Kentucky has come out which essentially states that if you were not properly notified of the immigration consequences of your plea, then your sixth amendment rights to counsel have been violated. Thus, we would go back into the criminal court based in large part on Padilla vs. Kentucky. Even though this case has been ruled it is not retroactive, it does not mean these cases cannot be argued. We will argue on the principles upon which the case was made.

      Attorney Fees (Filing Fees and Costs not included)
      The total Attorney Fees will be $4,500.00.

      • Brian, thank you very much for your reply. Bruce Margolin was my criminal attorney and I don’t recall him mentioning anything about deportation at that time although I do remember the judge make a remark on this issue before accepting the plea bargain, case never went to trial. I was 19 when charged with first GTA, got probation and a year later was charged with second GTA that was committed back when I was 16, two years before the first when I already learned my lesson and was staying straight. Based on your experience.. with all due respect what do you think are the real chances of me winning all this and regaining back my green card? Thank you, John.
