Thread: someone please help

  1. #1
    could someone please help me, my story is this, i am a u.k. citizen, met fell in love with and married a us citizen, we both and my wifes 6 year old son returned to the u.k., well things are hard here for my wife and she wants to return to the u.s. obviouslly with me but we have a problem, 10 years ago and 20 years ago i got into trouble with the police, i have never been to prison and have no convictions for drugs or the like, but never the less was very silly all those years ago, i have 5 minor offences and i know this is going to cause us huge problems, my wife and all her family know and support us in whatever decision we make, my question is this, do you think that the authorities would look at my case and see that i have been out of trouble for 10 years and take that into consideration, is there a specialist lawyer i can contact, although the wrong way to do it, we will return to the u.s. and i will have to apply for adjustment of status, there.
    we are desperate at this time, i love her so much and hate to see her so unhappy here.
    any advise would be welcomed, thankyou

    Good morning bobbyc666 ,

    With limited information u provided about your past and convicted crime...all I can say is to be honest with BCIS and everything should be ok with ur case.... Don't try to hide anything from them as that could become a big hurdle in future.... Kindly provide more info and others will help u out....good luck...Pasha

    I would recommend speaking to an attorney about this, even if you just have an initial consultation with them and then prepare the rest of the documents yourself.

    It would probably be quicker for you all to apply from the UK rather than do an adjustment of status: the whole process here takes about 3 months.

    There are a number of specialised US immigration attorneys in London (I should know, I work for one ). I believe the US Embassy can give you a list of attorneys to contact.

    thanks for the replys so far, yes i need to talk with a lawyer, it would be a good move, am so scared though that doing it from here and get refused will give me a ban for visiting my wifes family in the u.s.
    spursgirl79 do you think that your company would be willing to take this on, if so can i get contact details, i know that lots of people must be in the same situation, i have heard that perhaps an i601 hardship application from my wife may help, any more suggestions welcomed.

    To be honest I don't know if ours would, as we don't tend to deal with family based cases. (Plus that I'm supposed to be working, not playing on the internet and reading message boards!) Your best bet is to look at the following webpage, which lists US attorneys in the UK:
    http://www.usembassy.org.uk/cons_web...amattorney.htm

    Or call the Embassy hotline, 09055-444-546 (1.30 a minute!): I think they can give you a list of companies that deal with immigration matters (as those in the list above seem to be any US lawyers in the UK, not just immigration ones)

    Without specifically knowing what you have been convicted of it is difficult to say whether your convictions are important or not. If the offenses are truly minor then it shouldn't be a problem but if you consider a drug possession "minor", for example, there could be a problem.

    He comes to our board with history of crimes and wonders if USCIS will let him enter America! We have enough problems with our criminals; show us a single reason why they should issue you a visa !!
