Hector E. Quiroga's answer Seeking legal counsel who could represent him before the court on the charges against him could help in some way.
Unfortunately your husband’s problem has been compounded by his absence from the US for so long; he’s essentially abandoned his residence. There are ways to regain it; he should visit the US embassy or consulate that has jurisdiction or the area where he lives.
Myron Morales' answer Maybe. She can apply for a reentry permit, which serves as the best evidence that she did not intend to abandon her residence while abroad. You should discuss your work plans with an attorney as she may qualify for Naturalization or a N-460 might help her while she is abroad.
Myron Morales' answer As long as he completed a divorce, then he is free to marry you. He will need a certified copy of the divorce decree to prove that he is free to marry, but it should not be a problem from an immigration perspective.
Sheri A Benchetrit's answer You can apply for a green card again if you legally qualify for it. That means that should you get married, your boyfriend can sponsor you for a new green card, but the process will start from the beginning. The surrender of your previous green card is not necessarily an impediment to a new application, although it might raise a red flag.
Sheri A Benchetrit's answer Yes you can file an I 130 for your daughter, but if she is over the age of 21, and if she is married, her place in line will be further back and it may take a few years before it is her turn in line.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer It seems you’ve got the evidence it was filed and that it is in process. You can also go to uscis.gov and plug the receipt number into “check case status online” for further evidence. Without knowing if there is a reason why you specifically need to receipt notice, it sounds like you’ve got plenty of evidence that the I-765 was filed/received.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer We can’t answer the question re: visiting your fiancé/spouse in Sweden; for your spouse to visit you here s/he must show a preponderance of evidence that she will return to Sweden after visiting you. She doesn’t need a visa to visa, since Sweden is a visa waiver country, but proof of employment, residence, family, assets, etc. Being married to a USC spouse carries a great deal of weight when determining if someone will remain in the US or not, so your fiancé/spouse will really want to...
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).
Grant St Julian III's answer What was the basis for the dismissal of your criminal case? If you were found not guilty at trial, you are entitled to an immediate expunction. If the case was dismissed by the DA without a plea, you MAY have to wait for the statute of limitations to expire before an expunction can be filed. Was an indictment filed? Clearing up those records will help with the immigration situation. Call your attorney. Good luck
Lana V. Elliott's answer I am not aware of the process that would allow a minor to renounce their citizenship. Parents are not allowed to make this decision on behalf of their children. A child must be at least 16 years of age to present himself at the US consulate abroad and request renunciation of h their citizenship. Even then a consulate officer might still find that a child lacks maturity and recommend them to wait util the age of 18.
Lana V. Elliott's answer Unfortunately,being an international student and having a social security card are not sufficient, on their own, grounds to apply for Green Card. There should be family, business, investment, or other relationship that would be a basis for a legal permanent residence (Green Card). I would recommend you to consult with an immigration attorney in your area to discuss your options and potential venues for obtaining Green Card.
