    I agree with my colleagues. It looks like the best option is to withdraw the pending case and file a nunc pro tunc case. Because it will be at the discretion of the USCIS, the nunc pro tunc case should be prepared by an experienced immigration attorney on behalf of the company.

    No he's not allowed to come with your parents. The fastest way to bring your brother is to file for your parents asap. And when they become permanent residents, one of them can sponsor your brother since he is under 21. But under the current priority dates it would still take about 2 years for your brother to come here. This is the best option. The other alternative is for you to sponsor your brother but that would take about 10 years.

    This is a complicated question that is beyond the scope oft his forum. I'd highly recommend that you consult with an immigration attorney, whether myself or one of my colleagues, to discuss your options and come up with the best strategy.

    I agree with my colleagues. There are a lot of different factors/considerations that go into determining an appropriate fee for deportation cases. And no once can give you a quote on a public forum like this. But feel free to email me or give me a call to tell me more about your case.

    As an F-1 student, you're only allowed to be a passive owner. This means you're not allowed to perform any work for your company nor have a title like "President." As a passive owner, you can invest money in the company but that's about it. You need to hire someone to run the company until you get your OPT.

    I agree with my colleague. This is a serious situation, and you need to remedy it asap by disclosing your arrests to USCIS. Please talk to an immigration attorney regarding how to proceed. Keep in mind that even if you get your citizenship, it can be taken away for not being truthful in your application.

    I agree with my colleagues that living separately will make your case more challenging. But based on the info you have provided, I still think you have a chance of prevailing. But the case needs to be prepared very carefully and with the help of an immigration attorney.

    You can start working for the company as soon as USCIS receives the case. For example, if you know Fedex or UPS made the delivery, it's probably safe to start working. But if you want to be extra safe, you could wait until the company gets the receipt notice.
