If you are the beneficiary of multiple approved I-140 petitions, you can sometimes apply the oldest priority date to all of the petitions. There are exceptions to this and there is inconsistent agency guidance on whether you can continue to use a priority date from a revoked or withdrawn petition. Additional guidance may be forthcoming.See question

The government has to prove that you gained naturalization by fraud or mistake. It is a difficult burden for the government to meet but one that have successfully met in other cases where they believe there was marriage fraud. There is no statute of limitations on denaturalization. If you are concerned about this, you should retain an attorney to help you build a defense against a potential charge now, before it is too late.See question

While the attorney helping you with your asylum claim or the change of status application can provide you with more specific information, generally speaking you have to be in status to change to another status. It is unclear from the facts as you explained them whether you are in status now or have continuously maintained status. The law provides that an EAD cannot be applied for based on a pending asylum application until 150 days after application has been filed and it cannot be approved until 180 days after the filing of the application. This EAD clock can be tolled if the asylum applicant causes a delay or if the application is denied within the 180 day period.

There are any number of reasons why the USCIS is conducting additional review. It could be that the standard review has not been completed. Or it could be that the initial review uncovered additional information that needs to be resolved. The USCIS could be questioning your eligibility for naturalization, your original eligibility for lawful permanent resident status, or whether you are subject to removal.See question

Currently on H1b I am looking for a new job. However there might be a possibility that I might have to resign before I end up getting a new job itself. Do I have a grace period of 30 days or so to maintain a legal status ? Can I apply for a touri...
There is no grace period. H-1B status ends when the H-1B holder stops working for the H-1B employer. However, the USCIS has the discretion to excuse a gap in status in adjudicating a request to change or extend status or change H-1B employers. The USCIS decides on a case-by-case basis whether to exercise this discretion. The longer the gap, the less likely this is.See question

There are several different options available to you. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, including time and cost. The plan you described could work, if done properly. You could also make it work if you come as a K-1 fiancé (which requires marriage within 90 days of the K-1 admission). There are other options as well.See question
