I’m an F1 student and we’re currently preparing a family petition green card application and I’ve never gotten a clear answer in what to put in the employment history section for most recent employment. Do I put unemployed since I’m a student? Do I put student? Or do I put unemployed and... Read more »
You need to provide clear, full and accurate answers. For instance, if you were an F-1 student you need to state exactly that with the corresponding dates. Since you need to account for five past years of employment history, go back chronologically and list any employment places if applicable.
My wife and I live at home with her parents so we want to add her step dad as a household sponsor to meet the income requirements. In this case he would have to fill out Form I864A. But what happens if we filed everything now, put him as a household sponsor and then maybe move in... Read more »

You may file to waive the joint filing requirement in order to remove the conditions on your LPR status. You will be successful if you meet all requirements. I suggest you consult with an experienced immigration attorney.
My question is in regards to the income. If we both met the requirement but he needs to stop working for awhile do we need a joint sponsor even if I make enough for our household size? or would my income be sufficient for when we go to the interview
Your income as intended immigrant can be counted towards the minimum income needed so you should not need a joint sponsor. Did you however have a lawful entry to the US to qualify for Adjustment of Status?
I was in Chicago (layover) and they questioned my intent of traveling to the US. I told them I was here to help a friend recover from surgery but did not believe my story. They said I was here to get married & after checking my phone, they could not prove it. Then the said I was here to work... Read more »
You have not stated very important information: How did you enter the USA? If you entered without inspection you were subject to removal regardless of your reason for being here and your education. You agreed to the removal.

You are free to leave the USA. You will not be able to return.
Based on your post it sounds like the problem is that your Netherlands passport is expired. Most consulates will not renew a passport for their citizens unless you are in the USA legally. The issue is being admitted into the...Read more »

The question is, what do you want to do about that matter? You say your father was charged with a felony drug offense but you don't mention what actually happened to the case? Did he plead guilty? Did he go to trial and lose? Or did he get deported before anything happened in the drug case? If...Read more »
"Yes" to all your questions but it will be important to show that he and/or your joint sponsor have sufficient income (excluding unemployment) both at the time of filing AND at the time of the interview. Best wishes!
You can file the FORM I-751 within the 90 day period prior to expiration of the conditional status. In your case you will need to subtract 90 days from 09/29/21 to determine the earliest day you can file the FORM I-751 with USCIS.
