You need to mention this on your N-400, but it probably will not keep you from demonstrating that you have good moral character.

No attorney can explain in detail how the situation works. That will likely take a paid appointment. What we can state is that you cannot work full time for two employers. In addition, if employer B files an H1b for you, you will likely have to work for employer B, only. Also, if the new job is... Read more »

answered on Feb 6, 2018

First, hire an immigration lawyer to advise and represent you. Next, an inquiry has to be made concerning the status of the I-751. ( I suspect it was granted or denied & you never received the notice.) Third, yes you can file an N-400 petition, but the I-751 has to be approved before your N-400... Read more »

Q: Can I legally abandon my conditional green card and reapply for a green card later on in life?

If I have my conditional green card and I chose to move back to my home country with my husband during the 2 year span. I know I must forfeit my status. However, if his work takes us back to the US later on in life, will I be able to reapply for a green card and live in the US again?

answered on Oct 23, 2017

Why not apply for a re-entry permit to preserve your residency card? If your husband has been assigned to work abroad by his employer you may be able to keep your card. Otherwise, yes, he can petition for you again, but this time for a 10 year card.

If you have been married to US citizen for 3 years, you can apply based on your spouse. Otherwise, as you already stated, it needs to be 5 years. USCIS has scrutinized N400s (naturalizations) more closely over the last few years. I would recommend working with an immigration attorney.

The only effect is that you must name the initial immigrant you sponsored as a dependent on the I-864 for your spouse - unless requirements have been met so that you are no longer responsible. This means your income must be greater.

Suspension from what? Work? School? More information is needed to answer this question. Talk to an immigration attorney in private regarding this situation.
