General Information About Visas And Immigration

If you have found your soul mate and are ready to take the next step, but your loved one is not a resident of the United States, learn the information below. It will make things easier for you while dealing with immigration law. There is a lot to learn about visas and immigration when you plan to co-habit or get married. It would be good to hire a qualified immigration lawyer to guide you through this difficult and stressful process.. It will help you avoid mistakes and some extra costs as well.

Because marrying U.S. citizen to achieve American citizenship is commonly used by people who want to circumvent immigration laws, immigration officials thoroughly examine and scrutinize couples who purport to have romantic relationships. To proof that your relationship is genuine you will need to have documented arguments. Be sure to save all records of your correspondence (i.e., emails, letters, phone bills), travel receipts, ticket to events you attend together, hotel invoices and photos or videos of your time spent together. Prepare the required documents and other stuff that can verify the length and sincerity of the relationship.

If the foreign-born spouse meets the eligibility requirements for the immigrant visa, the visa is made available to the spouse almost “immediately,” based upon close family relationship. Both the spouse and the U.S. citizen should be free to marry (never married, or have proof of divorce or of a deceased spouse), be of marriageable age, and provide evidence that a valid marriage exists (e.g., the marriage certificate).

Also, you should keep in mind that marriage laws in the United States are under the jurisdiction of state legislatures. Such U.S. states as Alabama, Colorado, Georgia, Kansas, Idaho, Iowa, Montana, Ohio, Oklahoma, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and District of Columbia allow some form of common law marriage. So if you are planning to marry or are already married at common law, you can rely on your immigration attorney to help you provide the documentary proof of your marital status. And remember that your family or friends are not a good source of advice about application procedures and immigration law.…

Accident Claim Trap (ACT) – ACT Against It – Truth About Insurance Companies

It’s on the rise but unfortunately insurance companies are trying to deploy various tactics to avoid a person involved in an accident using a personal injury lawyer or solicitor. It’s all about money. Insurance companies are trying to save money by dealing with compensation claims themselves or with a solicitor of their choice. Now, common sense should prevail here and you should be able to see straight through these insurance companies. They are not interested in your well-being or your circumstances, they want things dealt with, as quickly as possible, with minimum pay-out.
Take for example, the person at fault, who causes the accident sometimes can turn around and offer to pay you for damages there and then, at the scene. Now why does this happen? This happens for a reason. We aren’t mind readers but we can assure you that, apart from being humble, people try to do the same things that an insurance company does. People at fault, who cause the accident want to settle the damages, before you have time to think things over, and want to make a quick and smaller payment before things, that happened, can really sink in. What a coincidence, the same tactics are deployed by insurance companies. These people and companies are putting you on the spot, by giving you a small incentive in order for them to deal with the accident or injuries the way they want to, without taking your best interest to heart.
Compare Compensation Claims advises all our website users, clients or any person for that fact to always seek professional, expert legal advice from personal injury lawyers or solicitors before making any hasty or forced decision. It is a worrying trend that victims of road traffic accidents and traffic collisions are being urged to accept pay-outs for compensation directly from defendant’s Insurers before they have a chance to seek legal advice. It has been reported that insurers are pressurizing claimants to settle their claims without them having had any legal advice and without any medical evidence.
ACT against insurance companies who put you on the spot, trap and convince you that they offer you the best deals and services for your accident claim. Tell them to stop right there, give you the space and time to think things over and seek legal advice before you make any hasty decision. By law you have 3 years to make a compensation claim so there’s no need for any rushed or regretful decision.…

US Immigration Attorney Gehi Says About Basics of AC21 And Labor Immigration Law

What is the American Competitiveness in the Twenty-First Century Act of 2000?

The American Competitiveness in the Twenty-First Century Act of 2000 (also known as AC21) allows for a 3-year extension of an H1-B visa if the candidate’s I-140 has been approved and there is no visa number available immediately, according to Section 104(c).

What is Premium Processing (PP)?

I-140 Premium Processing is available was made available March 2, 2009. It is only applicable to H-1B beneficiaries who faced with the prospect of an expiring H-1B visa. Only H-1B beneficiaries are eligible to request premium processing at the time of filing.

Who is Eligible?

Candidates must be beneficiaries of I-140 petitions, in a category of preference that is designated for premium processing service, must have reached the six-year limit of their H-1B visa stay or will reach the limit within 60 days of their filing, must adhere to section 104(c) of the American Competitiveness in the Twenty-First Century Act (AC21), and must be ineligible for extension of their H-1B status under section 106(a) of AC21.

What Documents are needed?

According to USCIS standards, petitioners must have copies of all I-94, I-797, H-1B, L and Arrival/Departure Records that have been issued to them, a copy of the Labor Certification Approval Letter, as issued by the Department of Labor (only if applying using the EB-2 and EB-3 classifications), and a copy of the I-140 Form petition receipt notice if the form had been previously filed.

What are the Consequences of the New Premium Processing Standards?

Previously, only H-1B holders whose status was set to expire within 60 days or less were eligible to apply for premium processing. Now, individuals have the option of applying more than 60 days in advance of their H-1B expiration, or after their H-1B visa has already expired. This allows for more eligible candidates for the processing program and expands its purview.
