AOS case denial, USCIS made mistake, what to do now?

Apr 28th 2017
AOS I-485 case denial letter came, need to file a motion to reopen or reconsider soon
however the denial reason (priority date not current) shown by USCIS can't be possible as the paperwork was filled on time and with attorney supervision.
The case had 3 interviews, the first two didn't mention anything wrong with the total application
the third one sent a denial letter, and we are pretty sure the USCIS made a mistake

what to do now?

What happens to existing L1 visa once F1 is stamped

Apr 28th 2017
I am in the US currently working on L1 visa. I have received an admit for a full time MBA program from a University. I am planning to visit India and get my F1 stamping done by mid-June 2017.

The course does not commence until 21-Aug-17. My I20 has an effective date of 22-Jul-17. Will my L1 visa continue to hold good after my F1 visa is stamped but until my F1 triggers in or will the USCIS invalidate it upon the F1 stamping? I am planning to return to US after my F1 is stamped on my L1...

TN Visa given only for a year.

US Address when abroad for over 6 months

Apr 27th 2017
Hi,
I have GC for 2 years now and planning to travel to India for about 6 months or longer. My question is what should I do with my apt.. I currently rent a place, and thinking of vacating it when away. It will save me the high rent in NYC area and also the risk of leaving it vacant for long time.

1) Are there any risks of not having a US address when away for 6 months or longer?
2) If I don't have US Address, what should I indicate on AR-11? Bank accounts?
3) How important is US...

US citizen parents sponsoring over 21 son..

Apr 27th 2017
Hi,

I'm single, over 21 living in the US with "PR pending", my parents are GC holders. They will get their US citizenship in 2007 so my priority date will automatically come closer. My question is, will I get a GC right away...or will I first get a work permit, followed by a GC? Has anyone experienced this situation? Anyone know the rough timeline?

Many Thanks!

Why was decision appointment changed to letter in the mail?

Apr 26th 2017
I have a dear friend who recently had her asylum hearing in Anaheim, CA. According to both her and her lawyer, the hearing went very well and both are very optimistic about a positive outcome. At the time of the hearing, she was given an appointment two weeks later to receive the decision. Today, however, her lawyer received word that the appointment was cancelled and that she will be receiving her notification via mail instead.

I was wondering whether there is anything that can be...

Hello,

When an asylum office refers you to an Immigration Judge, does the "referral notice" come from the Asylum Office or from the general USCIS branch?

Thank you.
