    Family Based Visa--Relatives who may file for other relatives

    in Legal

    Family Based Immigration Law-which relative may file for other relative?


    A United States Citizen (USC)


    A USC can file for a spouse, children (married or unmarried), parents, and siblings.


    A USC cannot file for grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.


    For a USC child to file for a parent, the child has to be age 21 or older.


    Foe a USC sibling to file for a sibling, the USC has to be age 21 or older


    “Immediate relative” means a visa number is available for the spouse, child or parent  to get a green card. At the time of filing, the child has to be under age 21.


    “Preference category” means that the intending immigrant has to wait for a visa to apply for a green card based upon that intending immigrant country of nationality.


    A Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR)/Green card holder GCH)


    A LPR can file for spouse and unmarried children. A child under 21 and a spouse is a mixed immediate relative and a preference category. The spouse has to wait while for a visa number, but it comes much sooner that say a sibling or a child over 21 to get that visa number.


    A child who is over 21 is a preference category candidate.LPR cannot file for parent.LPR cannot file for sibling, LPR cannot file for married children

    Sapphire J Blue Chats with Author Adrienne Thompson - " Ain't Nobody".

    in Radio

    With her biological clock ticking like a time bomb, Alex Weaver issues her long-time commitment-phobic boyfriend an ultimatum. Soon, things are back on track and Alex is well on her way to her “happily ever after.” That is, until she makes a discovery that rocks her to her core. When Alex decides to take control of her future, she begins to make some life-altering decisions that set her on the path of fulfilling her goal of having a family. But will she be able to deal with the consequences? Excerpt: As I sat there on the side of Quincy’s bed, the last straw flew in through the bedroom window and landed right on my camel’s back. Quincy, my fiancé and the love of my life, was in the shower whistling. He was whistling like he didn’t have a care in the world. He was whistling like I wasn’t thirty-seven and kicking the hell out of forty. He was whistling like I wasn’t unmarried and childless. Like we hadn’t been engaged for five years. Five years. He was whistling like he hadn’t refused to set a wedding date. Like my biological clock wasn’t ticking as loud as a time bomb. I’d been with Quincy Wright for eight years. I’d been his lover and friend. I’d bent over backwards, neglected my own needs, and done all I could do to be a good woman. I wanted a husband and I wanted children and he knew it. We’d discussed it at length. And what was his response? His black behind was in the shower whistling. That was it and whether he knew it or not, it was over. O-V-E-R

    #40: Everything You Wanted to Know about Donor Conception with Alice Ruby

    in Moms and Family

    As lesbians, the way we conceive, typically, is through donor conception, and donor conception is whole new paradigm for most of us.  There are many intricacies, details and lots of new information to learn. How do sperm banks work?  How selective are they with the guys that may be the future biological father of your child? What kind of background study do they do on these guys? How extensively do they test for disease or genetic conditions? How many biological siblings might your child have out in the world?  How do they handle future contact with the donor? How do you talk to your child about donor conception? What are the chances your child is going to want to contact their donor?  Alice Ruby, executive director The Sperm Bank of California (TSBC) is on the show to answer these questions and more.  TSBC was the first sperm bank in the country to serve lesbians and other unmarried women.  As the only non-profit sperm bank in the country, TSBC does immense amounts of research the outcomes and implications of donor conception for parents, donor-conceived individuals, and donors. TSBC offers tons of resources on their site for lesbian parents looking to conceive.  Find out why TSBC may be a great option for your choice in sperm banks.

    Do we need Marriage? Is MGTOW the future?

    in Blogs

    There are men in the Americas who refuse to get married. To some these men are called MGTOW. They may be known as other things. I need the audience to know that there are more unmarried persons than married persons in this country for the first time ever maybe. (I say maybe because stats were not always kept) Unmarried people took over in 2014. What this is about is determining what does marriage mean to us in 2015. Is it a good thing? Are divorce laws fair? Things of that nature.

  • UMAR JOHNSON - EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW-FRI, FEB 13, 2015 - 6:30 pm PST

    in Radio

    Dr. Johnson, who is an unmarried father of two, has more advice for the fairer sex, which he delivered in a lecture entitled “For Sisters Only” earlier this year. In the video, which is also posted on YouTube, the supposed clinical psychologist told a Brooklyn-based classroom full of adult black women that a black woman’s vag*na “is the back root to her unconscious mind” and that women who desire wild sex have mental issues. More specifically on that point, he says the following:


    “The more violent you are during sex, the greater the likelihood your unconscious issues are not dealt with. Yes!!!! Women who scream more, want to be beat on, women who want the man to engage them as if it was a rape…I met one brother the other day, who was like, ‘Brother Umar, help me out. I was making love to this sister and she was bad. And then she just started talking in another language and grabbing stuff and punching me in the back… And I was like, ‘Damn. Are you a woman or a man…’ Unconscious energy. If you want all of that, it is because you got issues…”


    Or it is possible that you just like “freaky” sex, including role playing and S&M and that you just had an orgasm? But these ol’ Mistas-from-the-Color-Purple-acting dudes don’t want to know anything about making that kitten purr – they just want lay on a girl and do their business.

    Unmarried Men With Many Women And Children: The Modern Plantation Stud?

    in Women

    The modern welfare system seems to have resurrected a pattern of behavior that was designed to destroy emotional ties between men, women and children in order to breed human beings for sale on the market. The plantation stud. Back in slavery times, this was a virile young man assigned by the plantation owner to have sex with a female chosen by the plantation owner in order to impregnate her. Once she was pregnant, the stud was then reassigned to another female, to have sex with her until she became pregnant. This business, known as "slave breeding" became popular once the United States outlawed the importation of Africans on slave ships. Without new arrivals, plantation owners had to create a system of breeding children for farm workers or for sale by creating an emotionally detached sexual relationship between enslaved men and women. This way, fathers would have no bond with their children, they often didn't know which children were theirs. The enslavedmen lost the instinct to protect and provide for a family, they were conditioned to be only driven by sex. They would therefore offer no resistance when the child or the mother was sold, beaten, or otherwise abused as a slave. Is the modern day phenomenon of emotionally detached men with multiple women and children a resurrection of the plantation stud? How do we correct this destruction of our family cultural values?

    Message to the Unmarried

    in Lifestyle

    If you've listened to LOVEOLOGY for any length of time, it is clear that there is a specific language we use when referring to the unmarried life. For instance, we say "unmarried" not "single". There is also an emphasis on establishing the value of being unmarried as more than just an in between to marriage. There is such power in the unmarried state, and Apostle Daryl's message to the unmarried is something that has forever transformed my life and the way I look at being an unmarried woman. Listen in this week as he shares his powerful, compelling and thought-provoking "Message to the Unmarried".
