Deron Edward Smallcomb's answer Large age differences increase the difficulty of any marriage based petition. The options you are considering should be discussed with an experienced immigration attorney.
Allen C. Ladd's answer It sounds like they must return together, as the best option, if she were to be deported.
For now, suggest you find an immigration lawyer and arrange a consultation to find out what other rights the mother has. If, for example, the US father abused her, then she may be able to apply for permanent residence as an abused spouse of a USC. (As you may know, here in SC we still have "common-law marriage" which does NOT require a marriage ceremony ... and USCIS will honor state law on...
Allen C. Ladd's answer It's a question for a family lawyer. I believe a family lawyer can advise you how you can resolve this issue. PLEASE don't try to handle this by yourself , or your fears may be justified.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer It depends on the wording of the statute under which he was convicted, especially if the statute involves any type of physical harm. To know for sure, he’d need to consult with an immigration attorney familiar with the criminal statute under which the individual was found guilty.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer Because you are married to a US citizen and entered lawfully, even though you overstayed, you should be able to apply for permanent residence in the US. You don’t state the type of visa on which you entered in 2003, but you might have to request a waiver for unlawful presence as part of your immigration process.
Kevin L Dixler's answer Yes, it may should you earn less than 125% of the poverty level established by the Department of Health and Human Services. This will depend upon your family size and current obligations. It is unclear whether you need or will need a joint sponsor.
As a result, I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney. Good luck.
The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
Kevin L Dixler's answer This is a question best asked in the privacy of an office, since all of the facts remain unclear. There are things that you can do to withdraw the I-864, but you may want to think about it, since she can self petition, where there is arguable abuse. Whether she is approved is another matter; you can't intervene on an abused spouse petition, since the evidence must be evaluated without your interference. That said, please continue to read, since it may help your marriage and her emotional...
Kyndra Mulder's answer Your son must first be an LPR. You have not stated whether he is. He will become a Naturalized citizen when you become a citizen. He must file the N-600 and get his Certificate of Naturalization.
Peter N. Munsing's answer Incredibly difficult to prove and at the end of it all, unlikely to get you anywhere since there is something called sovreign immunity which says that decisions of who to investigate and when are left to police departments. Discrimination on an iundividual basis, not related to race, isn't necessarily actionable--if cops do something to someone to get them off the streets, it isn't the type of discrimination they can sue for.
If your friend is a criminal, suggest he or she concern...
Daniel Martin Hartzman, Esq.'s answer There is not enough info here to determine whether or not you can file for a financee visa for her. However, a death certificate is enough to show that her past marriage was terminated.
Shan Dimitris Potts' answer You can check the income requirements on the USCIS website, although if it just the two of you without any other dependants you should be fine. Any and every proof of relationship you can gather will help, the more the better. It is not very difficult if the process is done by a professional. So please contact an immigration attorney to help you with this situation.
All the best.

Shan Dimitris Potts' answer Save that letter because from the information you have provided that is all the proof you have. You can file a complaint with USCIS if that letter and stating what you have mentioned here, however it is better done by an immigration attorney. Many immigration attorneys including me offer free consultations, make use of the consultations.
All the best.
