If you travel before the LPR status is granted you will loose the application and start over unless you secure advanced parole - refugee travel document. http://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-131instr.pdfSee question
(hypothetically) I was arrested for petty theft when I was 15 and got diversion, deferred adjudication and completed my probation. I was told my case "would not enter the justice system at that time". So, two years later I applied for a green card...
Hypothetically, if such happened, then it is likely that there is a greater investigation for the naturalization process and that the LPR could not only face denial of N400 application, but referral to immigration court for removal based on false statements in the I485 application and securing immigration benefits through false pretenses.See question
Been an H2B for 3 yrs now and I wanted to change to H1 may know the requirements and how much is the lawyers fee ?
There are no special rules when going from H2b to H1 status. You will have to apply next year when the H1 application period opens like others who want to apply and show that you meet all the criteria for the H1. Also, you need to review the requirements for stay outside of the Us when the H2B visa time has been maximized.See question

hello. Me and my wife have a pending asylum case and still not received a EAD, but as I know everyone have to have an insurance. For now we can't pay for it because have no work. Thank you.
Once you receive asylum you will be able to get assistance. The Florida DOH has the specific rules stated on its website:
If you are an asylee, your eligibility for refugee services begins on the date you were granted asylum. The information below details the services you may be eligible to receive.
Upon being granted asylum, you are eligible for eight months of Medicaid or Refugee Medical Assistance (RMA). Medicaid and RMA are free insurance programs designed to assist you with any medical problems you may have. Your spouse and children are also eligible if they received asylum with you. If your family members receive asylum status after you are granted asylum, their eight months of eligibility begins when they arrive in the United States or the date their Form I-730 petition is approved if they are already in the United States. You must apply for Medicaid online in order to receive the service. It may take time for your application to be processed and to receive your Medicaid card.
I have dual citizenship USA/Saudi Arabian I have opened a company in the states and want to operate in KSA but I'm not sure how because the company's registered with my us nationality and I want to operate here with my Saudi nationality.
I would contact the US-Saudi Arabian Business Council and ask about the options for operating such a business venture. One thing to note that as a US Citizen you will remain liable for all income reporting to the IRS no matter where the income is gained based on the fact the US Federal Government requires reporting of world wide income to Us Citizens no matter where they live.See question

As Attorney Shusterman correctly states there are very few options available to brothers and sisters who are in need of immigration benefits. Also he will need to be 21 to be able to file the I-130 for you and then the wait time kicks in for a priority date from the time that I-130 is approved showing valid relationship for the category.See question
