B Visa

I am a US citizen and spouse on B-2 visa

I am US citizen and my wife is here on B-2 visa, her I-94 just expired, applied for extension, denied. Can I file I-130 and 485 for her now and can she wait here for her GC legally without leaving the country?

You can file I-130 and I-485, but she must not travel outside USA until she gets her green card.

Visit visa for my parents

Can I invite my parents while I am on a business visit. I have I-94 valid till June 2011. My dad is a defence employee.

Your parents can apply for a tourist visa on their own. There is no law that they must be invited.

B-2 visa

I'm a non-married Iranian citizen who’s my first-degree family members are US citizens, currently residing in USA. During last several years I've been rejected every time I requested for a US visa (both F and J). Now, I am qualified to become a Canadian PR through the skilled-worker program. The visa is issued and I will be soon landing in Canada. I was wondering if my chances for getting a B-2 visa to visit my family will be any better once I'm a registered Canadian resident. Is it wise to ask for a visa once I get my PR card?

I think if you wait till you have a steady job and roots in Canada, and then apply to visit USA, you should have a better chance.

B-2 to B-1

I am an IT professional who has come to the US for medical treatment on a B2. I am getting better. Since I like to constantly upgrade my skills, I found some training programs that I could attend as they are more frequent in the US than in Canada. Can I attend them on a B2? I mean I have a B1/B2 visa, but the officer marked it as B2 on the stamp on my passport at the POE. Second - I also have got an offer for a one day lecture to some technology professionals for which I might get paid. How would the folks know I worked for a day if while exiting the country there is no checking?

I believe you can take training on B-2 as long as your main purpose of stay in USA is is still medical treatment. Getting paid may be a bad idea.

Parents B-2 Visa

My company has agreed to bring me and my wife to USA on L2 visa and then later get a H1 B visa. I want to make sure my parents have a B2 visa before I leave India. I have thought of two possible approaches: a) Get a B2 visa for my parents but telling US consulate that I am traveling on business to USA and want my parent to visit the country. I used the same method for my wife 2 years back with no problems. b) Get a L2/H1B visa for my self and then submit a request saying my parents want to visit the country for some time.

I dont see much difference in the two (as long as we are truthful with the consulate). Option b may be slightly better because you would already have the L/H visa.

Mother's visa expires - reentry

My mother's 6 month stay expires next month and she wants to go back to her country and come back to US in 10 days. What kind of questions will they ask her at the airport?

A trip back after just 10 days is likely to be problematic. She can be declined entry because the govt. Can view this is an abuse of B visa in that she is staying in USA more than she is in her own home country.

B1/B2

I entered the US with my mom in 2005. I was underage then. My visa B1/B2/BCC expires in Oct of 2010 and my permit I-94 expired in December of 2007. I am now 20 years old and I am married to the love of my life and he is a US citizen. I want to know what I can do. What files and forms will I need?

You should be able to get your green card. Do not travel outside USA until you do. I would suggest getting a lawyer.

I visited US 3 times ( 7-15 days each) but for this or that reason i did not join job there. Meanwhile I registered a LLC there for my business and running a small business for last year. Now I have to attend a conference and set up things for the business. This time I want to go with my wife and 2 year old kid. Which visa would you suggest?

B-1/B-2 seems to be the correct visa.
