    Assuming she is otherwise eligible for permanent residence, and also assuming you're a U.S. citizen, she will be able to apply for adjustment of status based on the I-130 Petition that you will be filing for her as your wife. Yes, you'll money on the plane ticket, but the filing fees are a bit more, plus you really should consider hiring a good immigration attorney.

    Oath ceremonies in the Boston area are held several times a month. They get filled up fairly quickly, so if you just passed your citizenship test, it may be a month or longer before you get scheduled.

    My colleagues are correct - K3 doesn't make sense anymore. What seems strange is the length of time your I-130 Petition has been pending. You should have heard from USCIS by now. Have you checked the status of your I-130 petition on their website (www.uscis.gov)? Gregory Romanovsky, Esq. 12 Marshall Street Boston, MA 02108 617.787.0000 gr@romanovskylaw.com

    I wouldn't say it looks good, especially given the possible report by the spouse. It's critical to have the best legal representation in this case.

    The answer depends on the timing of your N-400 and your level of comfort in having your family here without authorization. If you've already filed for naturalization and you're in the Boston area, chances are you will be called in for an interview fairly soon (if you haven't been already). It WILL be possible to adjust their status even if they're no longer in status by the time you naturalize (and any period of unlawful presence will be forgiven, provided they don't leave the U.S. before you...

    Again, there are different kinds of "dismissal". If your dismissal involved some admission of guilt on your part, this may be considered a conviction for immigration purposes.
