    Applying for a visa while already in the US as a tourist?

    Further, you shouldn't attempt to go to Japan if you are currently in the US. The Japanese government is denying entry for COVID hotspots like the US.

    Applying for a visa while already in the US as a tourist?

    I should point out that while the K-1 allows 90 days to get married, as long as he stays in the US after those 90 days, he can still adjust status once you do get married (since he entered legally when the AOS is approved, they will forgive the overstay).

    Applying for a visa while already in the US as a tourist?

    You should consult an immigration attorney. There are two problems with your proposed plan. 1. You can not apply for a K-1 if you are already present in the US. 2. Entering the US on a visitor visa (or in the case of Japan on the VWP), with the intention of NOT leaving will result in a...

    What can trustee do to 1/9 interest of property I’ll receive?

    The timing on this is crucial. You should discuss this with the attorney you hire to handle your bankruptcy. If the inheritance is not protected by the bankruptcy (which it likely isn't), it's going to be hard for a trustee to do much with a 1/9 share other than lien it so that they recover...

    Denied firearm purchase for 2010 restraining order

    The RI statute requires the reasonable belief of great bodily on the part of the intruder. You can't just go blasting away at anybody who walks through your door. I should point out that even with states with a more liberal castle doctrine, there's a lot of (at the minimum) hassle that goes...

    Denied firearm purchase for 2010 restraining order

    He's not dictating what you post, he's saying you're not going to get meaningful answers unless you have the actual facts and should come back when you have them.

    Denied firearm purchase for 2010 restraining order

    You can get file a privacy act request to the ATF to find out what they think you have on your record: https://www.atf.gov/resource-center/freedom-information-act-foia (follow the part about the privacy act NOT FOIA) As CDW points out, you'll probably have to wait a while. Even the clerks...

    recourse or non recourse mortgage

    Being a veteran doesn't change whether the loan is recourse or not. It matters mostly what state you are in (and perhaps the type of property financed). If it is a VA loan, the VA can help you if you are behind on your payments, see: https://www.benefits.va.gov/homeloans/ If not, I suggest...

    Fed ex misdelivered overnighted dog meds

    Did Pet Meds charge you for both shipping? It's they who need to make the claim with FedEx as the shipper anyhow.

    Homeowners policy cancelled

    How old is the roof and what material? Just because it's not leaking now doesn't make it "perfectly good."

    selling gold ornaments for cash

    Note that while the calculation of the amount of gain is the same, if these are bullion coins (i.e., things that have a specific weight of gold in them, rather than being currency), then there's a different capital gains tax rate that you must pay.

    Questions before renewing GC, PP and applying for citizenship

    Eh? You're not making any sense. What country is your passport issued by? Why do they care about your US green card?

    Questions before renewing GC, PP and applying for citizenship

    I'm confused. If by PP you mean passport, what does your green card have to do with it? The passport is issued by your country of nationality. You'll need to get that renewed independently. If by PP you mean physical presence, I'm not sure what you're talking about. If you are in the US...

    selling gold ornaments for cash

    Can the loss be deducted at all? This is personal property, not an investment.

    3rd DUI while on felony parole in Texas

    The sense was that it was for the SECOND DUI offense. But I could be wrong. Thanks for the clarifications.
