When does a diplomat have “compelling reasons” not to return?

  In certain situations, diplomats serving in the US face threats to their safety when their term is over and they have to go back to their home country. The reasons are diverse but are generally linked to political retaliation or change in circumstances in the home country. To address this situation, Section 13 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) states that “ny alien…

Cómo contar las inversiones realizadas en EE.UU. para la Residencia Permanente.

La visa de inmigrante EB-5 es una visa que permite hacerse residente permanente si invierte 1 millón de dólares (o 500k en ciertas circunstancias), y crea 10 puestos de trabajo para ciudadanos o residentes de los Estados Unidos.

How to Count Prior Investments in the US Towards an EB-5 Green-card

  An EB-5 immigrant visa is a visa that allows you to become permanent resident if you invest 1-million dollars (or 500k in certain circumstances) and create 10-jobs for US citizens or residents. (Some other day we’ll talk about what “10-jobs” mean. Today I want to talk about how to count the 1-million amount when you have already invested money in the US). When funds…

Vivir en los Estados Unidos Invirtiendo en Bienes Raices en Miami

  En mi experiencia, muchas personas en todo el mundo quieren vivir en los Estados Unidos (EE.UU.) para disfrutar de la seguridad y la estabilidad que su sistema político proporciona. En América del Sur, por ejemplo, la mayoría de las personas con alto patrimonio saben que Estados Unidos nunca tendrá alguien en el poder que amenace las estructuras democráticas del país.

Matrimonio y Green Card

Constantemente me preguntan lo siguiente: Mi novio y yo nos amamos muchísimo. El es ciudadano americano. Si nos casamos, ¿en cuanto tiempo me llega la residencia? La respuesta sincera a esta pregunta es: Nunca. Existe una gran confusión acerca de como opera el gobierno americano. Esto evidentemente requeriría una clase de un semestre entero, pero trataré de dar una explicación simple por ahora. La palabra…

Marriage and Green Card

I am constantly faced with the following question/fact pattern: My boyfriend and I love each other a lot. She is a US Citizen. If we marry, in how long will they send me my green card?

Lawful Permanent Residents, Criminal Convictions, and Travel

It is not uncommon that I receive a call from a long time Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) who travels abroad for vacation or business who, to his/her surprise, is detained by Customs and Border Protection (CBP). When CBP detains an LPR, instead of admitting her and letting her into the country, it is usually because they have concerns regarding the “admissibility” of that LPR. Concerns…
