Q&A: I am Canadian and will be marrying an American and relocating there..options available?


by kleer001

Question by barbaraj2020: I am Canadian and will be marrying an American and relocating there..options available?
This is the situation. I am a Canadian & my fiance American. We met online over 2 years ago & have travelled back & forth during that time. He proposed & wants me to move there. No objections here. The thing is we want to live together (to truly further get to know eachother before we marry & make sure we are making the right choice) I know I can legally stay as a visitor in the US for up to 6 months, after that I must return. We dont want to file for a K1 visa before I enter the US because we’d have to marry within 90 days of me entering the US, & the point is we want to wait, live together & be sure. I’m wondering if anyone is familiar with US Immigration Lawyers. If I enter the US as a visitor and we wait let’s say 3-6 months over when a visitor should stay, will an Immigration Lawyer still process papers for us? Like I said we want to be sure, and wait a bit on things and we hate the thought of having “timelines” in which we need to make our decision. Any thoughts would be great.
As well, if I enter the US for 6 months and return home, I can not re-enter for 6 more months. It also isn’t financially, physically feesible for me to uproot and move tehre for 6 months, than him uproot and move here for 6 months, etc. We just don’t want to get into any trouble with Immigration at all, but want to be sure that marriage is the right thing.
Apparently ttpawpaw is a bitter person…but moving on… If I just go into the US as a visitor for 6 months stating that I will be staying with my b/f they wouldnt have any grounds to deny me entry would they? I just returned early jan from a 9 day stay down there, but wouldn’t be going again until July.

Best answer:

Answer by type2negative
DO NOT overstay visitors visa. You will be totally screwed up. (canada seem to be close to US, but once you screwup, it will take couple years the best to reunite).

Try tourist visa for 10 years or something. Even though yu can go to US fow/o visa, you still can apply for one.

Hope that helps.

OVERSTAY – NO!

Sean M. Ellsworth Speaker at the American College of Trial Lawyer’s 2009 Annual Meeting

Sean M. Ellsworth Speaker at the American College of Trial Lawyer’s 2009 Annual Meeting










Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 4, 2009

Sean M. Ellsworth recently participated as a panel speaker at the American College of Trial Lawyer’s 2009 Annual Meeting. The prestigious organization invited Mr. Ellsworth to speak on the topic of “The Dark Side of Technology in Jury Trials” after his successful defense in the case of United States v. Serge Francois, which involved a federal Internet pharmacy prosecution in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. After a two-and-a-half month trial and over one week of jury deliberations, the judge declared a mistrial due to juror misconduct, specifically because a juror had conducted outside research using the Internet — leading to a front-page article in the New York Times titled, “Mistrial By Google.” After the mistrial, the United States dismissed the indictment against Francois and returned approximately 0,000 it had seized.

Sean M. Ellsworth is the founding member and managing partner of the Miami, Florida-based Ellsworth Law Firm, P.A. The firm specializes in complex criminal and civil litigation. Mr. Ellsworth, who is “AV Rated” by Martindale Hubbell and is a member of the Florida Bar and the Massachusetts Bar, was also recently a featured speaker at the recent Southeastern Health Care Fraud Institute in Atlanta, Georgia.

Rochester New York Attorney Admitted to American College of Trial Lawyers

Rochester New York Attorney Admitted to American College of Trial Lawyers










Rochester, NY (PRWEB) January 25, 2006

Stephen G. Schwarz, a partner in the firm of Faraci Lange, LLP of Rochester, NY has become a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in America.

The induction ceremony at which Mr. Schwarz became a Fellow took place recently before an audience of 1,020 persons during the recent 2005 Annual Meeting of the College in Chicago, Illinois.

Founded in 1950, the College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States and Canada. Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only and only after careful investigation, to those experienced trial lawyers who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility and collegiality.

Lawyers must have a minimum of fifteen years trial experience before they can be considered for Fellowship. Membership in the College cannot exceed one per cent of the total lawyer population of any state or province. There are currently approximately 5,500 members in the United States and Canada, including active Fellows, Emeritus Fellows, Judicial Fellows (those who ascended to the bench after their induction) and Honorary Fellows.

The College strives to improve and elevate the standards of trial practice, the administration of justice and the ethics of the trial profession. Qualified lawyers are called to Fellowship in the College from all branches of trial practice. They are carefully selected from among those who customarily represent plaintiffs in civil cases and those who customarily represent defendants, those who prosecute accused of crime and those who defend them. The College is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the legal profession and the administration of justice.

Mr. Schwarz is Managing Partner of the Rochester Firm, Faraci Lange, one of the leading personal injury firms in Western New York. He joins his partner Angelo Faraci, who was admitted to the College in 1975 as one of only 17 lawyers in Rochester who are Fellows in the College. The newly inducted Fellow is an alumna (alumnus) of Albany Law School and is a former President of the Rochester Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates.

Charles Kuck Inducted as President of American Immigration Lawyers Association




Vancouver, BC (Vocus) July 10, 2008

Charles Kuck, Managing Partner of leading multi-state immigration law firm, Kuck Casablanca & Odom, LLC, was introduced as the new President of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (“AILA”) at its 2008 Annual Conference on Thursday, June 26, 2008.

Charles Kuck, a renowned champion of immigration advocacy and reform, addressed the thousands of attendees with a call to action; he asked AILA member attorneys to recognize a duty to speak out against immigrant injustice and give back to this often helpless community. The galvanizing speech was met with overwhelming support.

Mr. Kuck challenged the gathered immigration attorneys to fight back in the courts over government encroachment on the constitutional rights dear to every American citizen and publicly advocate for the good created by a positive, comprehensive change to our immigration system. He also announced a commitment to initiate a pro bono campaign for military service members and their families, stating “These individuals are the ones that need our utmost loyalty and respect. Yet they are hampered and sometimes abused by the bureaucracy system of DHS.”

The American Immigration Lawyers Association is the preeminent national organization on Immigration Law, with more than 11,000 members comprised of attorneys and law professors. These members represent countless individuals, families and businesses in need of immigration-related assistance and advice in the United States and abroad.

Charles Kuck expressed his unwavering commitment to the basic rights guaranteed to all persons, stating, “I call on us to no longer stand for injustice against immigrants, because injustice against immigrants is injustice against ourselves. We can no longer afford to let our politicians run amuck with paranoid dreams, sacrificing the basic rights and liberties that we enjoy as Americans. When we let the Federal and the State Governments take basic rights away from immigrants, we are simply letting them take them away from ourselves. And we cannot let that stand any longer. Please help those who cannot help themselves. Be that force for good.”
