    Price-wise, I do not see much of a problem. Information-wise, you might be misunderstanding some of what he says. My general approach is very pragmatic - you find an attorney you feel comfortable with. That should include some research, recommendations, credentials, reviews and personal interview with the attorney. View it as a job interview. You are hiring someone to work for you.

    The three years starts on the date you became a lawful permanent resident and includes any time as a conditional resident. You calculate the three-year period using the resident since date on your green card. The 18 months is total during the past 3 years. It does not need to be consecutive. However, absences of six months do cause a problem.

    You should start by scheduling a consultation with an experienced immigration attorney as any other way will cause you to continue posting on public forums but will not move your case forward.

    You must count your husband's income since the household income is what counts. Your mother's income can be used only if she worked for six months or more legally. I completely disagree with my colleague. You can use the house if the value of the house minus the loan amount rises up to the 5X of the statutory income required for the household of your size. Reference USCIS form I864P for more specific guidance on the required income.

    Yes you can, but you will definitely need it later on. If you have a copy, please include with the submissions. USCIS does not usually ask for an original to be mailed.
