I'm assuming that you have been paroled and are at liberty after serving prison time for a crime. You can always return to your home country, Great Britain, even with an expired passport.

I am married to a U.S. citizen, It's been almost 7 weeks that I have mailed the form I-485, but I have not yet received the receipt notice of I-485. Is this normal?
answered on Jun 17, 2021
There is a huge variety of time frames for receipts to be received. Welcome to my world. USCIS receipts can take any where from 4 days to 4 months. I would not worry, but after 45-60 days you can call 1-800-375-5283 to inquire or make an Infopass appointment with your local USCIS office to inquire.

It's a little difficult to answer your question, because there is a lot of information that is missing. I am assuming that you have a two year conditional green card. I don't know if you are divorced yet. If so, you may be able to petition to keep your green card.

ICE said that they have to leave and my wife’s parents ran away just left a note saying if ICE finds me they can take me. My wife didn’t sign anything but would happen to her since she’s sponsored them in ?
answered on Dec 16, 2020
When you say she sponsored them, I take that to mean she filed I-130 petitions for them to be eligible to apply for permanent residency/consular visa processing. No liability to her for the sponsorship. If she posted ICE bonds she would forfeit the money posted.

Yes, file for your naturalization. You should hire an immigration lawyer and be represented for both matters. Eight years? There's something wrong with the way they handled your case. Good luck

Your question requires too many questions on my part and too many answers on your part before I can even formulate recommendations as to the course(s) of action you should take. Consult with an immigration lawyer before taking any steps or filing anything.
If new one is required how do I pick the correct form?
answered on Nov 21, 2019
If you do it will be rejected as stale. Always send a fresh I-864 Affidavit with a complete copy of your latest tax return, W-2 or 1099 forms, and a letter from your employer verifying your employment.
