Kelli Y Allen's answer If you application for permanent residence has been approved, you are legal to work but will not have anything to prove this to a potential employer.

Deron Edward Smallcomb's answer The process you are considering is quite complicated in general, more so than just deciding whether to file for the i765 as well. You should consult with an experienced immigration attorney to discuss the details of your case.
Kevin D. Slattery Esq.'s answer You should consult with a competent immigration attorney who can can analyze the particular facts of your situation. Generally speaking, U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services is no longer granting "advance parole" travel documents to DACA beneficiaries such that they could reenter the United States to resume their DACA "status." Depending on the age at which you were granted DACA and your prior entry/exit history to/from the United States, you may not necessarily trigger a "bar" to reentry...
Hector E. Quiroga's answer Since that is specifically requested, we recommend that you find someone who can put that information in that section for you. Alternatively ask your wife to write it down and send it to you. Then trace it onto the form.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer First, you’ve already passed the period when a public charge determination would be made. Filing the I-751 doesn’t change that. As long as you are otherwise eligible for those things, you won’t have any problems.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer No, but it doesn’t matter. You don’t need to send your 2016 W2, only your most recent one—ideally 2018 but you can still submit 2017 until the end of March. You can get transcripts of W2s at your local IRS office or online.

Deron Edward Smallcomb's answer This answer is very dependent as to whether you entered the K1 fiance visa or another type of visa. We always recommend to our clients not to use advanced parole except in dire emergencies. If you entered on another type of non-immigrant visa, such as a visitor visa, and are adjusting status based on marriage, you take a huge risk by leaving the country even for emergencies. You should definitely contact an experienced immigration for assistance.
Deron Edward Smallcomb's answer You will need to have a reason for a change of circumstances as to why you didn't file in the first year, otherwise you would only be eligible for withholding of removal. These cases are very difficult and you absolutely should contact an experienced immigration attorney.
Deron Edward Smallcomb's answer Adjusting status on anything other than a K1 fiance visa is a complex process. There are several forms and supporting evidence which must be submitted perfectly to be successful. You should contact an experienced immigration attorney for assistance.
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 have more issues than just what country he would interview in. When someone violates the immigration laws of another country, our government expects that they will do the same here. Even if you are qualified in every way, his overstay in France may prevent you from getting any type of visa, whether it be a K1 or based on marriage. You should definitely contact an experienced immigration attorney to help you with your case.
