Allen C. Ladd's answer This is a gray area. Send the death certificate with request for humanitarian review. Do this through an immigration lawyer. In any event, the Form I-864 Affidavit of Support by the petitioner (US citizen mother) will likely need to be replaced with the I-864 of another USC/lawful permanent resident (LPR).
BTW, this looks like an "F3" family-based 3rd preference case, USC parent filing for [married adult child + son/daughter-in-law and grandchildren] family unit. There is no "F7"...
Kelli Y Allen's answer USCIS requires you to keep it notified of your current residence (where you are actually living). If you just want to have mail sent to a relative's address but are still physically living in CA, there's no need to notify USCIS. If you are having mailing issues, you can update with a separate mailing address. To my knowledge, no state has a "registration" requirement in order to have mail to to an address in that state.
Kelli Y Allen's answer Front an immigration standpoint, there is nothing to prevent you from marrying him. If he is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, he could then petition for you to become a permanent resident. The specifics of that process depend on a lot of factors, so I encourage you to have an immigration attorney assist with the process.
Allen C. Ladd's answer You will not be able to travel to the USA with a DUI arrest (even without conviction) within the past 5 years, because you are a public danger. You will need to get clearance from a "panel physician" who is on contract with the US consulate in France. Go to the consulate's website, or go to www.aila.org to look for a US immigration attorney in France, for further guidance. (If you don't find one in France, go to Germany in the listings, there are several I know of who handle this matter.)...
(1) It can be done from India, but be aware that leaving the USA will TERMINATE the I-485.
(2) The petitioner.
(3) It's a new process, with a different agency. Start over.
Do you know how long it is taking for processing thru Mumbai? Might still be best to stay here and adjust. Did you apply for work permits? If your parent or parents are working, it might change their perspective on waiting.
(1) You can get proof of your mother's entry, thru the CBP website. Google "I-94" and "Travel History" and "CBP" or go to https://www.cbp.gov/ and search "I-94." You will need your mother's name as it appears on the passport and the passport number.
(2) I can't say if your mother will be allowed back into the USA from a side trip to Mexico, even if returning within the 6-month period allowed under her entry in September. I would caution against it.
Kevin L Dixler's answer You were allowed to stay until an O-1 decision and decision on the extension. However, if you leave before a decision, then your extension of status application is deemed abandoned which revoked that part of the application. That is why you became an overstay.
If you need more than general information on why your ESTA was denied, schedule an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney. Good luck.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer In general, that person is not eligible for any public benefits, if that is your question. In general, they are not eligible for a social security number. There is some variation in availability based on visa type or other status request. This person should consult with an immigration attorney to see if there are any exceptions in their case.
Myron Morales' answer This case should not affect your ability to apply for an extension of your F-1 visa. You should consult with an attorney about a possible U visa application based on the crime committed against you.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer First, “EAD” is not a status. It stands for “Employment Authorization Document”. Your wife cannot change from H4 to “EAD.
She got the EAD because of the pending adjustment application. For whatever reason, she’s no longer eligible for an H-4, so her best is the see the adjustment application through to the end. Based on the dates you provided, it looks as if she did not overstay her authorized status before she applied for her green card.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer Possibly, depending on a variety of factors, including how much you plan to invest and how many employees you plan to have. We recommend you talk with an immigration attorney who has experience with investment visas (EB-5).
