This s an interesting question. Short of a research to see how this question is answered by the USCIS, AAO or BIA, or without looking into the definitions under the statute for the meanings of employer, employee, work and compensation, I’d err on the side of caution and avoid this internship...

Congratulations on your marriage. Quick answer to your question is yes, you must file the I-130, which you can file at the same time with the adjustment status.

The second one due to having covid. It took ages to reschedule that second interview. Now they want evidence for why I missed the second one, but I never went to the doctor and don't have evidence. I think it might be faster to withdraw my I-130 and re-apply. Can I do that.?

If this was a stand-alone I-130 petition, they don’t usually call for interview unless there is an issue with your personal background as the... Read more »

You may be eligible to file for asylum if you can show that you have a well-founded fear of persecution either (1) as a... Read more »
My brother, a U.S. citizen, is petitioning for my parents to come to the U.S. The plan was that I get a family preference green card based on the one that they would receive when they arrive. However, with all the NVC processing and COVID delays, the cases got held up for more than two years and a... Read more »

If I understood your question correctly, your brother has petitioned for your parents when you were under 21, you believe you have acquired F2A status as the result, and you want to know how to maintain that status.
While US citizens can file a petition for their parents (as immediate... Read more »
i just need assistance on filing up the form since i will just file for myself without my spouse.
answered on Nov 1, 2022
This will involve more than just filling out the form. You’ll more likely need to apply for a hardship waiver. You should hire an immigration lawyer to help you with this.
