Unable to attend biometrics
We applied for extension of the B2 visa, and after 5 months they just scheduled biometrics . Unfortunately we won’t be able to attend it as we are exiting the country in two days. What should we do now.

Applied for Visitor Visa Extension, Stuck here in COVID, UK Passport expiring
Mother stuck with us as she entered the country in march and can't really fly back to India because she is high risk. We have requested an extension of stay as she needs to stay with us beyond the 6 month that is allowed and waiting for an answer from USCIS. The problem is her passport expires in April and it can take upto 12 weeks for renewal. The question we have is if we send her current passport for renewal and USCIS rejects the application for extended stay what are our options? From what I understand she won't be allowed to fly without a passport (assuming her current passport is still with consulate for renewal) and she can't really stay in US legally if her application is rejected.

Can employers request W2 to confirm your status
I received my work permit January this year and officially got job May this same year. Prior to that I was assisting one firm as an intent since last year May. In view of that I told the recruiter I have been working with that A company since last year May. During my conversation with the recruiter he asked of my salary and I mention the numbers.
Whiles we were concluding the interview, he said the company will do Employment Verification to confirm when I started the job and my salary. I just want to ask the house if anybody has been in this situation before.
I am worried as this is the job that can assist me.
On my status too I have applied for renewal of the work permit as my interview was cancelled.
I will be extremely grateful if I could get your input in my case. Thank you as always.

1) As my father has an annual income of 20000$ with would it be sufficient for three person(me,mom and sister)
2) As my father will not be able to join us could this factor penalize us?
3) before traveling to New york in December we are going to Canada next month .can this factor also penalize us as we will be spending to much money on tourism this year?? Thanks

B2 visa- overstay son
Hello, I hold F1 visa, but I will get greencard soon since I married a US citizen.
I’m going to get BS degree in May next year, so I want my grandmother, my mother and sister to joint my graduation ceremony. My grandmother is the person who pays for my tuition and living expensive in the US. And her career is a politician. However, she has a son who is currently in the US with overstay status. But they didn’t talk or communicate with each other for 5 years already. My question is can my grandmother get the B2 visa since she has an overstay son? Thank you in advance

B1/B2 renewal help
Hello, Here are the details and the questions I have:

I sponsored a B1/B2 visa for my in-laws in 2011. Both got their visa approved. They travelled twice in the last 10 years and stayed no more than 6 months on each occasion. My father-in-law was a retried employee back then (he retired in 2003). I was holding a green-card at that time (in 2011).
Their visa's are expiring in 2021. I am planning on re-applying.

What has changed (legal/immig status wise):
1) Me and my wife are citizens as of 2018.
2) We have 2 kids since then.

1) Should I sponsor this time again? or Should I pick that they will sponsor for themselves? As I am a citizen, does it matter if I sponsor (as I did the first time for their B1/2 visa) or specify they will self fund their trip?

2) My in-laws are not sure if they have given 10-finger prints? But reading online resources, it is very obvious that they must have given their 10 fingers for finger printing Should I say NO or YES for this option (as they dont remember, I cannot have them choose YES), but, with COVID and challenges with travelling to the consulate in India, I am hoping if they can get the drop off option. If I pick NO for ten-finger prints, does it hurt the ability to get the interview waiver?

If you had a similar situation or had seen someone with a similar situation, what would yo suggest?

Any help is appreciated!
