how can I change my records at USCIS/save?

Answered 12 hours ago by attorney Alan Lee, Esq. | 2 Answers

Legal Topics: Immigration

Alan Lee, Esq.
The question is why you did not add them at the time that you were applying for the green card. If it had something to do with the way that you immigrated and would contradict the category under which you were eligible, such adding on might result in the revocation of your permanent residence. If... Read More

What you're describing may not be fair, but that doesn't mean that it is illegal.  An employer can't discriminate on the basis of race, gender, religion, etc., but as long as the discrimination is not based on some such statutorily prohibited basis, and unless it is bound by some contractual...

Travel outside the U. S. during the time that the H-1B is still in process automatically terminates any requested change of status.

what happens if a summons is ignored

Answered 14 hours ago by attorney Bruce Robins | 1 Answer

Legal Topics: Contracts

Bruce Robins
If you ignore a summons, you will likely have a default judgment entered against you for the amount of money the plaintiff claims you owe, plus interest and assorted fees.  The plaintiff will then pursue collection remedies (garnishing wages, selling assets, etc.) to collect the judgment.

Was this your lawyer or did he/she represent an opposing party?  If it was your lawyer it is theoretically possible that you may have a claim for malpractice.  If it wasn't your lawyer, he or she owes no duty to you.  If an opposing lawyer manages to convince a Judge to do something... Read More
