If she did we would have to change her adjustment of status , right ? Or can I only marry her via k1 visa ? We are scared they might see it as fraud and take away her visa.

An immigrant who enters the country legally, and marries a US citizen can adjust status to get a green card. If the marriage occurs within 90 days of legal entry, there is a presumption of fraud. If she marries you after 90 days, then it would be permissible to file an adjustment case, provided...Read more »
My understanding is she can drive her car here for no more than a year. She's worried that on her way back to Mexico they will question why she was here and what she was doing and that they might take away her Visa. Should she be worried? She would come on a travel visa and they usually give... Read more »

Typically, you would apply for adjustment via a consulate outside of the US. However, if you're in the US and you're still within the allowed stay of the VWP / ESTA, then you can send an application to USCIS while in the country.
I’m sponsoring my wife. We have our interview coming up in a few weeks. My income is above the 125% of poverty line I filed all my taxes even 2021 is filed but I have past due taxes from years ago. Does the USCIS verify if taxes are paid or just filed. Thank you.
USCIS does not verify if taxes are paid by the sponsor, only that they are filed. However, if the fact that they have not been paid does come up, it may put into question why the sponsor cannot pay taxes due to IRS but expects to be able to support another person's daily needs/expenses. USCIS...Read more »
I have not committed any crimes since and my record is clean. I’ve been a permanent resident since 2016 and qualified to apply after 3 years since married to a us citizen. We have 2 children together and stilI married.I get confused with the question they ask.
You would answer yes on the application form and you would have to provide stamped copies from the court about the case. The best thing to do now is to get the stamped copies and take them to a lawyer for a discussion. The naturalization application requires good moral character and a conviction is...Read more »
Will it be an issue to install? My daughter was going to be the one driving me to and from work but a friend told us if im in the car where the device is connected I have to be the one driving. I don't know how true that is
Eligibility for concurrent filing aside, I would not recommended withdrawing the I-539 just in case your pending EB case is denied for any reason. If it is ultimately approved you can withdraw or the USCIS will deny the extension based on your approved I-485.
We are only getting married in the Us because of the only family that is in support of our marriage lives in Dallas. It is interfaith and so the pretext for it in India is dangerous. We both are Indian citizens; I have residency in Canada and my partner will be joining me soon.
I don’t consider this to be smuggling since I didn’t gain no money and I didn’t cross anyone over the border the illegal aliens were already in Texas I just had to pick them up. And now I got a charge for this and pending court date.
It is irrelevant whether you received any payment for your activities or whether the foreign nationals were in the United States: these are not the requisite elements of the current criminal charge you are facing, witch has a possibility of a prison sentence upon conviction.
My wife has a green card. Im interesting if im alien is any way to get residence or I have to wait untill her citizenship? If so, is it true that I can apply for residence in the same time when she will apply for citezenship? Thank you

More information is needed, perhaps, but this is likely more of a divorce question than immigration. You are a lawful permanent resident, not a conditional resident, correct? You should file for citizenship by naturalization, since you seem to have been a lawful permanent resident/conditional...Read more »
