Lost Passport-Help! How do I get new passport re-stamped with transfer H1B in London?

A:  On Thu, 09 Oct 2003 16:35:55 +0000, csf wrote: Hi, I recently lost my UK passport with H1b visa inside. I reported the passport as lost to the State Dept. and have applied for a new passport from the British Embassy in Washington. The H1b inside my lost passport expired in August 2003 and I have a NOA form from my current employees containing details of my visa extension until May 2004.

I spoke to BCIS and they told me that in addition to the above forms & photos, I will...

Q: 

My boyfriend has a felony and is a hunter. He is not supposed to have a gun in the house. Well a long story?

A:  This is not about "theft". This is about "possession". Felons in the possesion of a firearm go back to prison. For quite a while. So what you''re trying to say is your boyfriend is a felon with a gun and you want to turn his aunt in by "hear say"? It doesnt''t work that way darlin. Good luck with that! Your BF is a looser he should be locked up, He knew the rules and he got caught not his aunts fault that he is a convicted felon he knew the possibility was there I am quite sure there much more to this trailer park drama. Let me see if I''ve got this straight. Your boyfriend has a criminal record and a gun, and he lives with his aunt in a house where there are drugs. He wishes to inform the authorities on a...

Q: 

How can we make this American and Canadian marriage work in both countries?

A:  Don''t know about Canada, but for your husband to immigrate to the US you would need to file an immigrant visa petition (form I-130) on his behalf with US immigration. See uscis.gov for the form and instructions. -have I overstayed my status and could I be asked to return to the US without my husband while the paperwork is being processed? (I arrived in March 2008, we married February 2009) YES you are currently illegal BUT you can still APPLY on the proviso that you get BACK into legal status and STAY in status while your case is being processed. You MAY be asked to return to USA - but you may also be allowed to get back into status. http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/department/media/backgrounders/2005/2005-02-18.asp (new

Q: 

trying to gain back what shouldn''t have been taken

A:  I hope other responses are helpful. This site asks that crude language such as "crap" not be used here. We want messages to be comfortable for everyone to read. Angie Community Moderator Do you have court-ordered visitation rights? If not, you will have to file for them. Even if the court considers you to be a flight risk, you can obtain an order for supervised visitation and/or phone contact. If you do not have an order for visitation, then he does not have to allow you contact with the boys. If you do, and he is denying visitation or moving without notifying you, then your recourse is to file a motion for contempt of the visitation order with the courts. The DA and the police can't help you. You have to work through the family court system. You...

Q: 

Is this legal? Can I get out of this?

A:  Hopefully, you haven''t already bought the house for this person.... Stay away from the deal if you haven''t done it already. You are just asking for trouble. Since your name will be on the mortgage, anything that occurs within the house, or happens to the house, or it''s occupants will be your responsibility. No amount of explaining to anyone will change that. There are plenty of other avenues your "friend" can take to get into a house without involving you..... your lending your name, credit, reputation with lenders just to start. My father gave me good advise when he said "Never mix friends and money". I know you want to help - but emotional support is all you can "afford" to give...please be smart....YOU are liable It''s called...

Q: 

i need to know if i have recourse for this issue

A:  You can forget any recourse against the person on the internet. That was just plain foolish to get involved with her. And nobody put a gun to your head to sign over the puppy. Have you asked the rescue place what it would take to get the puppy back?   randiik: Give her up to "her" rescue? Is she an actual member of a "rescue group" and are they registered as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit charitable organization?  If so, you might try contacting the person in charge to let them know that you disagree with their method of "rescue" and that if not resolved you will discuss it with an attorney.  If the attorney elects to represent you, and if the media gets wind of it by way of the attorney, the public might not...

Q: 

I am an American citizen, how do I go about becoming a citizen of Canada too while retaining USA citizenship?

A:  The United States doesn''t recognize dual citizenship''s. Either you are an American or you aren''t. Yes the USA does recognize Dual citizenship - USA simply requires that all american citizens produce a US passport at the border. However, I would like to get Citizenship for the country of Canada too due to personal reasons.... well first you must apply for PERMANENT RESIDENCY and this WILL REQUIRE that you LIVE IN Canada for 3 years BEFORE you are eligible to get canadian citizenship. PR status in Canada is the same as GREEN CARD HOLDER in USA How much money would this cost (I''ve heard 10k?), and what is the procedure? I paid less than $3000 for my entire process. $1000 is application fees. Also medical exam fees, document fees, and...

Q: 

I''ve been selected to Grand jury for 6 months. What are my rights as far as my job/Benefits, pay?

A:  It depends on your state''s laws. "The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) does not require payment for time not worked, including jury duty. This type of benefit is generally a matter of agreement between an employer and an employee (or the employee''s representative). The Bureau of Labor Statistics'' (BLS) Employee Benefits Survey indicates that 87 percent of employers offer paid leave for jury duty service. While federal law does not, some state laws require employers to pay employees who are asked to serve jury

Q: 

Urgent-!!!Temporary EAD Expiring(485 pending for a year)

A:  I understand your frustration -- I've been there. My husband's background check took close to one year after our successful AOS interview. From filing to approval it took us 21 months. We were lucky we weren't living in NY, where it took 2+ years just to get to the interview stage. Unfortunately it is *your* responsibility to keep your work authorization updated and filed in a timely manner so that you can work without interruption. You should file 90 days ahead of the expiration date of your current EAD. You do have to pay the fee again. If you do not get your new EAD by Jan 17 and your GC has not been approved by that time, you may be able to get by by showing your employer a receipt that you have filed for a new EAD. The background check takes as

Q: 

Can they garnishee Unemployment Checks?

A:  Although I am not a legal professional by any stretch of the imagination I was in your situation about a year ago. I do sympathize with you, as the job market is the worst I have seen it. I too was and am very qualified w/references and I bet you I sent out hundreds of resumes in 3 months time. Keep sticking with the temp agencies, they will find you something I am sure of it! That is how I got my job I have now. Anyway, as far as I know a credit card company cannot garnish any wages until they first take you to court and have a judgement placed against you. I ended up having to file chap. 7 to rid myself of the deep debt I was in. You will be okay, You''ll find a decent job soon I am sure! Keep your chin up and pray that everything will work out. Good luck! Wow.. I can sympathize with...
