You are asking good questions, but the answers in your particular case can only be provided after the facts of your case have been reviewed. Just because USCIS says something does not mean it is true. Similarly, there are often times when a client tells me they have no or little evidence and from discussions we are able to establish that additional evidence does in fact exist and can be obtained with further effort.

Arrested on 12/94 for 9 pounds of Cannabis(Florida 3rd degree felony 893.13). No drugs was found on me or in my car. Found in an apt that did not belong to me. On 7/95 entered Tampa Pre-Trial .No guilty plea was entered nor "REQUIRED" to enter pro...
The law provides that an application for a adjustment of status can be denied if an immigration officer has "reason to believe" that an alien has been involved in the illicit trafficking of a controlled substance. This provision of the law is very broad and no criminal conviction is required. The fact that you successfully completed a pre-trial intervention program which resulted in the charges being dismissed means that you were not convicted of the charged crime, but as I noted, a conviction is not required.
Now, that being said, the law involving the "reason to believe" standard has evolved considerably over the past 20 years and USCIS (the successor to INS) cannot apply the provision as liberally as they previously did. Whether this is beneficial to you, however, will depend on the facts of your case.

My husband and I got married October 2013. We completed all of the steps for him to get a green card, paid all the fees, and he passed the interview in Montreal April 2014. He got a CR1 visa in his passport and was able to come to USA. They said h...
It appears that while you may have paid all of the required fees PRIOR to your husband's interview, once the visa was issued and BEFORE your husband traveled to the United States, he was required to pay the $165 USCIS Immigrant fee. Failure to pay this fee will result in a green card not being produced.

A reply to an inquiry is not worth the paper it is printed on. Until you have actually taken the oath of citizenship your application has not been finally approved. USCIS has 120 days to compete processing of a naturalization application once your are interviewed, but it is not uncommon for them to take much longer. if that time period has elapsed then you can continue to prod the agency hoping for some sort of movement, or you can go to Federal Court and file a complaint for a writ of mandamus requesting an the Court order USCIS to adjudicate the application within a specific period of time.
You do not indicate the date of your interview so it is not possible to determine whether the 120 day period has run or not. If it has, consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review your case and advise you how best to proceed.See question
I obviously had to quit my job since residence was terminated, and will also move to another state. Can I get with the lawyers help, any kind of work permit or something like that while I fight for my green card? Is that possible? 2nd question is:...
Just because your I-751 was denied and your status terminated does not mean that you do not have employment authorization and must quit your job. Termination of your conditional resident status does not mean that you are no longer considered to be a permanent resident and are not entitled to its benefits. It means that USCIS feels that you are not entitled to status as an LPR, but only an Immigration Judge can make the final determination and until that occurs, you are entitled to proof of status and evidence of employment authorization.
How best to handle your case will depend upon its specific facts and it seems that you have many misconceptions about what you are entitled tom what is going to happen next and how best to deal with it. You indicate that you are consulting with 3 lawyers in one day. Hopefully one of them has extensive immigration experience and can help you.

I want to study in college in the near future but i am curious if its possible to switch from h2b to student visa without going back in my home country ? Can i legally work on student visa?
Assuming you have been accepted by a school approved by ICE to accept foreign students and you are currently maintaining lawful H-2B status you apply to change your status to that of an F-1 student. Generally speaking, an F-1 student is limited to working on campus jobs for at least the first year of his or her educational program, though there are some exceptions.
This can be a very dangherous process if not handled properly. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review your case and advise you how best to proceed.See question

Many more facts are needed to properly evaluate your case. However, you were not placed in removal proceedings because you are maintaining lawful status. Failure to maintain your status can foreclose many options so you should do what you can to maintain lawful status.

Whether you can adjust your status to that of a lawful permanent resident will depend primarily on whether you are subject to the 2 year foreign residence requirement (not all J-1 programs have this requirement) which applies to many J-1 programs. Thus, more acts are needed. If you are subject to the 2 year requirement, it appears you are eligible to apply for a waiver of the 2 year foreign residence period.

Generally speaking , from what you describe, you appear to have the basic elements in place to make an E-2 visa application viable. The substantiality and proportionality of the investment should be looked at carefully since on it's face, $50K , while viable, can be considered a law investment, specifically when you do not own 100% of the business entity.
