My mother's "family name" is different in my Birth Certificate and my brother's Birth Certificate. My mother uses both names interchangeably. What documents do i need to submit with the I-130 to prove that we have common mother? Father's name on both Birth Certificates is same.
Sorry to disappoint you, but it is probably not worth the effort. The visa "preference" category for siblings of US citizens is backlogged. It will likely take a dozen or more years -- much longer if your brother is from Mexico. Another issue is that Congress might eliminate the category....Read more »

To make sure I understand correctly, your sister is a US citizen and is 23 years old. Your sister may petition your mother for permanent residence, yes. Whether your mother applies for naturalization is up to your mother, and it is something that will only come up after your mother has been an...Read more »
The immigration attorneys at my company are currently waiting for my job posting phase to close out (already got labor cert), so my I-485 has not yet been filed.

I don't know if this is an immigration case in any respect but as I am a Georgia-licensed attorney I will advise you to call the State Bar of Georgia in Atlanta and ask for their Lawyer Referral Service, and then ask for help with a family lawyer in Greene County. Your best option may be in...Read more »

Interesting. I've never come across this. Someone else may, and will answer directly.
But to answer: Yes, it will affect the processing. As a protective measure, I think you would want to file an I-131 and ask for a Re-Entry Permit, which will protect your wife for up to 2 years during...Read more »

I heard I could begin my naturalization process/apply for citizenship 3 years after my GC was issued, that would be in May 2019. Is... Read more »
You may actually apply for naturalization as early as February 2019, thanks to a "hidden" 90-day provision ... as long as you have been resident in the same city/county for 90 days leading up to your filing date. And stay there another 90 days, I believe that may be the rule.
Last summer in Miami, while in standstill traffic, I got distracted for a second and hit the car in front of me ( speed was very low, bumbers got a little bit damaged, but nobody got injured ).I called the... Read more »
Probably your own country would be best. Unless you have permission to travel to Canada, Mexico, or a Caribbean island. That would depend on your rights as a citizen of your own country, and what kind of visa (if any) that Canada, Mexico, etc. require. Go to the webpage of Canada, Mexico, etc....Read more »
