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.

Green Card Lottery?

Once again, I am a paralegal not an attorney. So this is in no way meant to be, taken as, or construed as legal advice. This Blog is intended to be legal information only. Also let us not forget that when a lawyer and or a paralegal becomes involved your problem becomes an ISSUE.
Okay, let’s get this show started than. I think we’ll started with the infamous Green Card. The quote Green Card was created in the 1950’s as part of the Immigration and Nationality Act. A Green Card had two major purposes. First as Photo-ID Card issued to a foreign national. Then it allows an alien to live, work and pay taxes in the United States. A Green Card holder gets to do this without giving up citizenship in their home country. Yes, Martha legal immigrants do have to pay taxes.
However over the years the term Green Card has become generic. Meaning everything from a immigration Photo-ID Card, to allowing an applicant to attend school in this country. It to even includes the type of ink used to validate a travel visa when you come back from abroad.
Believe it or not there is a Green Card lottery. Playing the Green Card Lottery is only slightly more complicated than playing power-ball. You see Instead of buying a scratch ticket like for any of the money lotteries, all an applicant fills out a set of forms including a photo submitting them online. Each year the State Department accepts Lottery applications from October 1 to November 3. Than all an applicant has to set back and wait. Hoping and praying to win.
Side-Note: Until 2009 a lottery applicant could mail in hard copies to the US State Department but now an applicant can only submit their application online.
Note: If an applicant wins they can bring their spouse and or children with them if they were listed on the entrance application.
This Green Card lottery is held each a year by the US State Department not Homeland Security. Each year, 55,000 immigrant visas (Green Cards) are awarded in this lottery. This Green Card lottery was created as an official program pursuant to Sec. 203 (c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. The idea behind this is to diversify who immigrate to our county. Opening the door to immigrants from 3rd and 4th world countries. This Green Card lottery is also supposed to open the door for low-income emigrates from other countries.
According to the rules there is only two things that can disqualify an applicant’s Green Card lottery application. First is trying to enter the lottery from a country on the disavowed list. Such as Brazil,
Ecuador and or the Dominicans Republic who are on the State Departments naughty list. other countries like Great Britain and or India who were disavowed for other reasons. Than not having the skills or education an applicant claims to have
WARNING: The countries on the State Departments naughty list. This list of naughty countries changes and changes frequently. So keep an eye on that list.
Now here is the catch if an applicant wins the State Department will not notify them. An applicant has to go online every few weeks. Just to see if they had won. The only thing a winner has to pay are the travel costs to get them here.

Child Dump/ 2014

I am sorry this article has taken so long. You see this article involves a class of people I am extremely passionate about. I will be using Thursday as my future postdate. I’ll try to get back to Bankruptcy.

It looks like we just had another immigrant ‘Dump’. This ‘Dump’ is sorta like the ‘Dump’ Cuba did back in the 1970’s. Castro ordered the deportation of his middle class. Something like 400,000 families were shipped to Florida.  Plus a huge number of shall we say ‘undesirables?’  We are talking about thieves, murders, rapists’, child molesters, those who do murderer for hire. Castro basically emptied his jails and threw them on us. His purge included his mental hospitals. We got everything from bed waters to serial killers. To everyone’s amazement we kept them. All of them.

Now it seems we have another ‘Dump’ going on. Except this we are getting children. So far our Boarder Police have picked up roughly over 700 unaccompanied minors. I am talking about children with ages ranging from newborn to 16 years old. With more coming in every day.

Just so you know these poor souls are not from Mexico. They are coming from countries as far away as Guatemala, Salvador and Honduras. Countries currently being hammered by tropical storms and armed insurrections. Authorities’ are predicting the number of unaccompanied children will exceed 1,000,000.  1 million lost children looking for Mom or Dad. Hell, some these children on would settle for an Aunt or Uncle. Family who came north years ago looking work any kind of work.

Now, I am sure these children have been bused and frightened by the border patrol agents. Hell, how much do you want to bet that more than a few teenager with too much attitude got their attitude readjusted.  I guarantee some without any attitude problems had their attitude readjusted. We will eventually discover how badly mismanaged this mess will be.  We are talking about greedy lazy people going out of their way making thinks difficult for those who do want to help.

What gives me real nightmares are the children that weren’t picked up.  How many died in the attempt to cross. Worse yet how many fell prey to human predictors. Human traffickers’ turning those children into slaves.

Let’s be real folks, selling children boys as well as girls is the major growth industry of the 21st century. I can’t say this loudly or often enough being kidnaped and or sold happens to boys too.  Little boys anywhere from newborn to 16 years old. Although most boys start to lose their ‘attractiveness’ about age 14. Which means 9 out of 10 times a death sentence or something worse for the boy.

These children boys and girls alike are sold and used with no more dignity then a cow being led to a slaughter house. There have been reports of these ‘entrepreneurs’ are making millions of dollars more than drug dealers in children’s flesh.

As you can tell children are very important to me. Ever since I have begun trying to adopt Lord above, how bureaucracies can create problems’. AS a single man I have met a lot of resistance.
