Fiancee Green Card

Okay, back to work. I am a Paralegal, not an Attorney. So in no way are these articles to be, considered as taken to be, taken as legal advice.  These articles are legal information only. Let us not forget that when a Paralegal and or an Attorney becomes involved your problem becomes an  Issue.

If you start down Fiancée Green Card road, you should know approval  is going to cost you $340. The only real requirements are that your Intendant be legally single at the time of your proposal. Plus that you have met your intendant in person at least once. It would sure be a whole lot better if you showed that  the two of you have met more than once and have had an ongoing e-mail relationship.  Also,   just like the marriage green card, If  your intendant has minor children and their other parent is out of the picture those children come to the States with their parent.  It just takes filling out the right set of forms and making sure all those forms are completed correctly and turned in at the correct times.

Now as to the forms you are going to need. The first one is I-129F. This bad boy’s instructions are nine pages long. So, if you are doing this one on your own please God, find a paralegal or a lawyer to help.

Now here is the catch this marriage must take place within ninety days of getting your intendant’s arrival in the United States.  IF, for some reason, your wedding doesn’t happen, your intendant could face a boat load of troubles. Anything from being jailed to enforceable deportation. Plus it will place major roadblocks in your intendants further attempts to immigrate. Having a failed wedding without cause on their record could hamstring them Even if they find someone else willing to marry them.

However, if there are valid reasons the marriage did not take place.  Reasons such rape or assault.  An intended could try again or ask to apply for other types of green cards.

Okay, Now comes the paperwork part. As soon as your Pastor or your Judge says you do you, your independent must get started on the real paperwork right away. Your intendant still needs to file Forms I-765 and I-485.  If these forms don’t get turned in, your intendant could still find themselves deported.  Also, let us not forget about form I-130, which will a get visas for any minor children your intendant wishes to bring with them. This  form does include step-children as long as they came into the custody of your intendant care before the child’s 18th birthday.

Opinion: If your intendant does have minor boys and wishes to bring them There is one form that should turn in at the same time you turn in a Fiancee Visa application.  Form I-130

SIDE-NOTE:  After your marriage ceremony is over, your new spouse can sponsor the Immigration of children over the age of 21 years.  Your new spouse would be able to sponsor parents and or their cousins.

Next time I am gong to talk about voting rights. Then back to immigration.

Side-Note: Presidential Executive Order

As I said before, please remember when a lawyer becomes involved your problem becomes an issue and that I am a paralegal not a lawyer.  It also seems crazy republicans want you to believe President Obama either doesn’t have, is abusing and or making more Executive Orders then any other president. That is very and I do mean very wrong. While executive orders are considered federal law valid around the nation, there are 3 ways to overturn an executive order. 1st if congress could ever get its act together it could veto the order, 2nd the Supreme Court can overturn an executive order, (I have included an example in this post) finally the next president can terminate or rewrite an executive order. There are some orders which do have a built in termination date. Originally executive orders were limited to the administration of different governmental departments and how that department would deal with a federal law directly effecting department operations. Now, thanks to President G.W. Bush’s National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive (National Security Presidential Directive NSPD 51/Homeland Security Presidential Directive HSPD-20, the powers of the executive order has greatly expanded. You see, prior to this directive a president could respond to a threat or danger with military force but after a period time the president would have to go before congress and ask for a declaration of war, if refused the president would have to bring the troops home. (Just so you know the presidential directive is not an executive order.) Directives can also be challenged like an executive order and can be renewed like an executive order. A few in congressmen did try to challenge but were overruled by their fellow congressmen. That’s how we got into the 10 year Iraq war and the power to declare war now resides with the president. To make these changes permanent unchangeable law a senator or congressman must decided it is a good change and introduces a bill in support of the executive order or the president talks someone into introducing the bill. Than manages to get it through both houses so he can sign it the order will expire. Also the incoming president could renew or terminate an executive order if someone tells him about it or slips it in among a pile of other things requiring his signature. If none of this happens than the executive order will find its way into his or her ‘presidential library’. Where it will probably be forgotten. Now the Supreme Court can override and or nullify of an executive order. Let’s look at executive order 10340 created by Harry Truman. This order expropriated and federalized the steel industry. Executive order 10340 was canceled by the Supreme Court in 1959. Now there are federal laws that do have a time limit. President Obama created Protecting Tenants during Foreclose Act (P.T.F.A.) during his 1st term in office. The difference between an Act and an executive order is there was at least some congressional support. The P.T.F.A. dealt with a landlord tenant issue. More Next Week

Veteran’s Opinion

Let’s start with the fact, I am a Veteran. I have been a patient of the Veteran’s medical system for the last 15 years after my legs went bad.

Okay this is where things can get a bit confusing. The 1st time I became a part of the Veteran’s Medical System was after an honorable discharge in 1985. I enlisted in the VA Medical System because was the only medical insurance I could afford while I tried to go to school. This lasted until I took a job at the VA Hospital and worked there for almost 6 years. During those 6 years I had ‘private’ medical insurance and as an employee I had to seek my care in the civilian world. Eventually I was medically laid off because of my legs going bad. Then my insurance began rejecting treatments and procedures. That is when I returned to the VA medical system.

So as you can see I am quite familiar with both VA medical system and ‘private medicine.’ as both patient and employee. So you see I can honestly compare the 2 system.

With that said and as Ed Shultz says ‘Let’s get to work.’

The years I worked at the Denver VA Hospital it taught me that the hospital was working at capacity. There was a time we had more patients then we had beds. Often this was the result of what we called ‘dumps’. A dump is when one of the for profit hospital discovers that one of their patients is indigent or if patients insurance had reached its capacity for the year and were not going to pay anything more. If the patient is a veteran they would move that patient to a local VA Hospital.

I remember when I was assigned to a surgical intensive care unit a veteran was rolled in attached to every portable life support there was. His paperwork showed he was a ‘dump’.

Then came the budget cuts. Thanks to the republican cuts we had to close 2 wards and a medical intensive care unit. Those now unused patient rooms were turned into offices no one use and a st0ore room with nothing in it.
Then came a rare moment of sanity in which congress recognized PTSD and Agent Orange as real medical conditions. Doubling the patient load.

Now thanks to 2 useless manufactured wars the VA Patient load is quadrupling. These Veterans are seeking care with traumas and injuries that in World War II meant death.

Last year republicans cut another 29 billion from Veteran’s budget. The sequestration budget cut another 10% was cut from the VA Budget. During the Bush/Cheney years $60 billion was cut from the VA budget. Good old super smart Paul Ryan fixed it so veterans will not be getting a cost of living raise for 3 years. Hell, He has made it clear he wants to cut all disability payments to Vets and to everybody else getting help for that matter. As part of his war on wasteful social spending.

So what I don’t get is why republicans are uptight about doctor’s being forced to see 20 or more patients in day and not being able to give their patients the time they need. Plus patients waiting several months or more for visits to specialty doctors or their primary doctor.

Anyway it seems to me strange that republicans are upset because Vets are slipping through the cracks and dying.
Well that’s my rant.

Next week back to Bankruptcy

Obama goes to War.

I apologies about being gone for so long but problems do happen. So please Excuse me as I go political this week. It is so cool writing for a blog that lets me go off on these tangents every now and then.
So as Ed, from the Ed Show say ‘Let’s get to work.’ This last Thursday President Obama declared war. He attacked Putin right in the wallet. SMP Bank of Russia/ St. Petersburg-based Bank Rossiyahas has been isolated. His sanctions blocks the bank from doing business with any bank or financial institution that is American owned or operated.
President Obama also blocked a lot of Putin’s rich friends from accessing their assets held in the United States.
You see President Obama went radical. Much to the displeasure of the crazy republican. Instead of risking expendable assets, living soldiers, Obama has placed assets much too valuable at risk. MONEY.
President Obama’s actions has greatly displeased crazy republicans So much so they are now allowing MasterCard and Visa to resume doing business with the SMP Bank.
They are even blocking further sanctions. Trying to make Obama look weak and useless. You know with some of the history, I have learned lately. Like The real reasons for the Iraq war reasons, Regan torpedoes Carter’s efforts to free the hostages then buying their freedom with arms after being elected, Nixon blocking LBJ’s ending of the Vietnam War so he can get elected,
I have got to wonder if there isn’t somebody egging him on trying to create yet another war. You know Uncle Sam buys multi-billions of dollars of weapons during a war that are never used. After all those weapons are much more valuable than living soldiers.
With the treatment our soldiers receive when they get home, and waiting years for their promised benefits. That is if they are not denied because some paper pusher decides one of their forms wasn’t filled out exactly right. If that happens than the poor veteran has to refill out the paperwork and wait an outer four years. Just to let you know there have been bills put forth by Obama and the democrats to speed up the process but once again crazy republicans have blocked those bills. Then comes Food stamps being cut so veterans can’t feed themselves or their children while waiting for their promised benefits. And after 10 to 15 years of being shot at, and or blown up or veteran’s when after discharged are booted out the door and told go be normal. Are told, if you have a problem dealing with the world after 10 years of terror, or your body is so severely damaged you can’t find or maintain a job. Well sorry about that but if you complain you are just useless and weak so don’t bother us with your problems. Oh yeah, that unemployment insurance you’re supposes to get after your discharge, oh well sorry about that.
Making it very clear, at least to me that crazy republican’s believe soldier are the least valuable and most expendable assets.
Is it any wonder 22 or more veterans are taking their own lives every single day?
Next week I will be posting on what Serf-Dom really is. After all that seems to be were the crazy republican’s seem to be bringing back. Then I will be picking up with the S.C.R.A. I will be going deeper into detail.
