Not necessarily. I have seen USCIS repeatedly deny a citizenship application for the failure to register for Selective Service, so you can't think that merely waiting the 5 years will suffice.
Men are required to register during the ages of 18-26. If you failed to register you need to submit a letter when you apply explaining why you did not register for the Selective Service.
You should go to www.sss.gov to request a Status Information Letter. This submitted with a letter explaining...
This information is on the USCIS website (www.uscis.gov)
Form G-639 - All requests must be mailed or faxed to the National Records Center at
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
National Records Center, FOIA/PA Office

According to USCIS they use a three track system to process FOIA requests.
Track one - (131 days) for simple requests.
Track two (160 days)...
You must report all the time you have spent OUTSIDE the US. Going to Alaska is not OUTSIDE the US, but the trip to Canada is.
No you do not have to indicate that the trips were cruises. Just provide the dates of travel as the N-400 requests. For example, if you left and returned to the US on the same day then those are the dates that you will provide.
It should take from start to finish about a year. Although recently those types of cases have been moving a little quicker.
Yes, you can travel to your home country. There is no way to determine if USCIS will issue a request, but the best way to avoid this is to use the services of an attorney (whether our office or a colleague).
Also, if you leave, just make sure that you are able to be reached by phone or email. So, if USCIS does want more evidence, you will be able to provide it.
I agree with my colleagues.......first need to know why the petitions were denied. USCIS will give the reason in the Denial Notices.
Second, have an attorney review and determine which course of action to take.
If you read carefully the letter you received from the NVC it will tell you the website to visit.
On the site it gives you step by step instructions on everything that you need to do. It tells you all the documents you and your parents must provide.
Your parents need to fill out the DS-230 form not you.
You can also consider hiring an experienced immigration attorney to help you with this process.

USCIS understands that there are times when spouses live separately - due to work or even school.
You need to make sure that you document your joint-life and provide proof that you are in contact with each other daily - phone records, emails, etc. If you will be seeing each other, keep records of proof of travel - plane, bus or rail tickets, toll records, photos together etc. Including your spouse on your lease/rental agreement as a tenant...etc.
It does not automatically mean you...
If your spouse is a US Citizen, then he can petition for his parents. He does not need you to file on his behalf. He can also obtain a joint sponsor or co-sponsor if he does not earn enough for the affidavit of support. He does not necessarily need you to be the co-sponsor.
Other than speaking to your husband and keeping track of all his outgoing and incoming mail, I do not see a way to can stop him before he does something. If you find out that he did forge your signature, then you...
