Kelli Y Allen's answer You should consult with an immigration attorney who can review your husband's criminal record. You will need to supply copies of the judgments. However, in most cases involving a controlled substance conviction, there is no waiver of inadmissibility.
Deron Edward Smallcomb's answer You may have problems because of the DUI. You should definitely consult with an experienced immigration to help you with your filing and any potential responses to USCIS.
Deron Edward Smallcomb's answer You should have renewed the work authorization before it expired, that way it would have automatically been extended. Considering you didn't, technically you shouldn't work. When they call you in for the interview for the i-485, you will have the opportunity to supplement the form by telling them that you continued to work for the same employer.
Kelli Y Allen's answer Is your boyfriend a US citizen? If you are asking in an immigration context, once you marry he can file a petition on your behalf and you may be eligible to adjust status (go through green process without having to leave the U.S.) As long as you are legally married, there is no requirement that you be 18 for him to file a petition for you. I suggest having a full consultation with an immigration attorney to make sure you meet all eligibility requirements and handle this process on your...
Kelli Y Allen's answer That is unusual and I have not heard of a case being transferred to another office after the interview unless you moved prior to the case being approved. Try placing a service request with USCIS or making an InfoPass appointment to see if you can get more information.
Kelli Y Allen's answer If you have made satisfactory arrangements with the IRS, then USCIS is okay with it. That would include having a payment schedule or the IRS making the determination that it does not have to be paid. For purposes of naturalization, they're really looking to make sure she's filed and is working with the IRS on any issues.
Kevin L Dixler's answer Yes, it is possible for her to stay, but she must agree to marry you, you must petition her, then she must request processing for "conditional" permanent resident status in the U.S. The cost is significant and the law gets extremely complicated. Her marriage based case can be delayed, denied and perhaps she can be deported in the process if the paperwork is mishandled and documentary evidence omitted. If she departs, it may take over a year for her to lawfully return!
Allen C. Ladd's answer I'm sorry this must be a strain for you. Contact a bankruptcy attorney and a credit counseling service, to figure out a plan to minimize your debt and to get protection against collection efforts. This will give you tremendous peace of mind, and your lawyer will help you get thru the bankruptcy and make a fresh start.
When it comes time to apply for permanent residence, you will then be able to show that you have your debts in order, and that you are repaying them according to a...
Hector E. Quiroga's answer At issue isn't whether or not he can pay for the trip but what connections he has in Mexico, and money in the bank is one. He has to show that at the end of his trip he will return to Mexico and not remain in the US.
Amber Hardy's answer Is the case in CA or AZ. If it is in CA I can help with the criminal and immigration. If it is in AZ I can only help with the immigration. As for posting bail he may have an ICE hold or get one when you post and would then be held for immigration to pick up so bail is tricky. Please feel free to contact me so I can get more information and help. 323-577-5002.
Carl Shusterman's answer If you continue to work full-time for your H-1B employer, you can also start a company as long as you do not take a salary from your company and you remain within the jurisdiction of the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.

Your other questions need to be answered by a corporate attorney.
Carl Shusterman's answer Immigrant visa (IV) applicants currently working with the National Visa Center (NVC) to complete their IV applications should make sure NVC has a working e-mail address for at least one party on their case. (A case party is the petitioner, beneficiary, or agent/attorney.) If you have not previously given NVC an e-mail address where you can be contacted, please call 1-603-334-0700 to provide your e-mail information. When you call, have your case number, petitioner’s full name, and the...
