I'm going to assume the paraphernalia charge was related to cocaine. ANY GUILTY PLEA related to ANY controlled substance, OTHER THAN a small amount of marijuana, will most likely mean your husband will be DEPORTED.

For your peace of mind, and so you are aware of your rights, I urge you to discuss your case with an immigration lawyer, if you don't already have representation. You can share all of the details of your case in confidentiality with that lawyer. Good luck.
Should be easy. Go to uscis.gov/forms and enter I-765 and keep clicking until you get to instructions page. Or go to uscis.gov and enter search term "DACA" and keep going and you will find the I-765 category. Offhand I think it's (c)(33) by the way, but DON'T take my word for it.
It sounds like they must return together, as the best option, if she were to be deported.
For now, suggest you find an immigration lawyer and arrange a consultation to find out what other rights the mother has. If, for example, the US father abused her, then she may be able to apply for...Read more »

I don't believe the USCIS action has any effect on your B1B2 visa ... but you will have to answer questions on arrival, clearing US immigration about the delay. You should be OK if you can convince them that, despite the short overstay period, you have no intention of overstaying this time. Best...Read more »
As a green card holder, you are required to report all WORLDWIDE income. I agree with my colleague attorney Mulder, that you will need to consult with a tax specialist or accountant, about what this all means in your particular case.
No problems, but you need to get on it. You'll need to keep your PR status in shape as you are looking ahead to citizenship. BTW, once you file the I-90 to renew your PR, you will receive an I-797 receipt notice. You can typically use the I-797 as proof, to renew state benefits like driver's...Read more »

This is a gray area. Send the death certificate with request for humanitarian review. Do this through an immigration lawyer. In any event, the Form I-864 Affidavit of Support by the petitioner (US citizen mother) will likely need to be replaced with the I-864 of another USC/lawful permanent...Read more »
My Green Card (first 10 years) is due for a renewal in a few months. Am I allowed to keep residency/drivers license in CA, but change my mailing address to another state (c/o relatives)? Do I have to "register" in that state for immigration purposes, change my DMV and SS address? Thank you!
Yes. You will be giving travel information on the N-400. This will include the first 3 months of your 4.75-year period. Be sure, now, to stay in the USA and in the same city, state where you are now, for at least the next 90 days.
