when he flies out to his country in Israel and reenters the usa, will immigration deny him entry due to his profesion? Can they see on record that hes registered with the sheriffs dept. As a legal worker?
No. This could impact him if he files for US citizenship, for which he has to show five years of good moral character. A recent policy change requires a determination of lack of good moral character for people working in even the legal cannabis business.
I will not be signing anything to help with the process. Also my spouse is military, naturalized U.S. citizen with a Florida residency. I am a natural US citizen born in Missouri and we were married in MO. It is my understanding state residency can influence marital property. I will be coming into... Read more »

As long as you are returning to the US on a valid L2, then a pending EAD application will not impact your ability to reenter in and of itself, nor should your brief absence impact your EAD application.
My German husband and I (a US citizen) recently married and both live outside US, but he is applying to US Universities for 2020. Is it possible he can enter the US on an F1 visa and I sponsor him/apply for Adjustment of Status once he has started studying?
He can, but it’s risky. A student visa is for studying, but if his intent is to immigrate to the US, that could jeopardize his application. Being married to a USC carries a great deal of weight against approving the student visa. He’d have to show he was intending to return to Germany at the...Read more »
