Re: L1A to GC - Do I need an Immigration lawyer?

I filed for green cards for myself and husband without a lawyer but the difference seems to be that it was my own company. I didn't need information from anyone else and don't know how that would be...

Re: Quick question on ESTA for PR or not.

Re: green card - working in US & UK

I work in both countries and the tax situation is far more complicated than it should be! As a LPR you must declare all income, wherever it is earned, but just because you are a LPR doesn't mean...

Re: IRS and their supposed advocacy service

I have recently opened another account at my bank, for business use. One of my employees didn't realize the account didn't have her as a signatory, because she was on the previous account, so paid...

Re: Minor Car Accident - some lessons?

My car was hit by another driver when I was inside a store. The first I knew about it was when my name was called out over the tannoy system. He had called the city police and they went in every...

Re: British expat injects 7 year old daughter with Botox

I'm not sure this is "legal". If botox is a toxin, then I would imagine it is totally illegal to inject a child. If an adult is stupid enough to want to do it to themselves, that is one thing, but...

Re: I140/485 filing

1.You can only apply for extension if you provide proof of status e.g. copy of approved petition, so if your visa expires and there is no renewal receipt, this is not possible. Easy form to submit...

Re: I140/485 filing

I'm pretty sure you can apply for an extension of I94 if you are in status but you need to show you are legal to get the extension! Is this your first year on L1A with a start up business, and you ...

Re: I140/485 filing

I was in the same position so I renewed L1A first and that gave me plenty of time. I didn't want to risk being out of staus because I do travel back to UK quite often. Didn't apply for EAD or AP,...

Re: I140/485 filing

I am also in Florida and filed last year through Texas, so unless there has been a change, you will probably find that you have to do that too.

Re: Health insurance for visiting parents?

My elderly in -laws have visited us fairly regularly and have only had the "free" travel insurance provided by their bank - also Lloyds, as it happens. Both have pre-existing medical conditions. My...

Re: Do you like it in the USA?

If only that view were true! Only this week there are announcements of more cuts in the police budget, supposedly not affecting front line officers, but in reality, those with 30 years service are...

Re: Minor Overstaying VWP

It would worry me severely that the L1 might not be approved automatically at the interview. I'm sure examples could be found on forums if you wanted to look - I have certainly seen them! Just...

Re: Minor Overstaying VWP

Have you called the Embassy and asked the requirements for young children? You will be pretty sick if you leave them and then discover that they should be in the UK with you. If you don't want to...

Re: L1 approval whilst in the US on VWP

Re: USCIS

As the requirement is to have been employed by the company for one year in the previous three, and it is a new company, my feeling is that you will need to wait that time. However, you will need to...
