I have a green card and I would like to petition for a family member (mother) to receive a green card, in order for her to come visit. I have heard multiple stories lately that nowadays the process will take 1-2 years. Is that a relatively correct...
As a permanent resident, you are not eligible to file a petition for permanent residence for your mother. Permanent residents may only file petitions for spouses and unmarried children. In your question, you indicated that you would like to help your move "come visit." Your mother may apply for a visitor visa at this time, if she wishes.See question
Im citizen and im applying for my husband he is in yemen they sent me an approvel letter on may1 2015 until now never herd anything what should i do i have been contacting the national visa center they say its not there there is people that i know...
If you take a look at the I-130 approval notice, does the notice state that USCIS is sending the approval to the National Visa Center (NVC)? It's possible that USCIS did not send the approval to NVC. I suggest that you work directly with an immigration attorney to determine what is happening, and to move forward to help your husband to move towards an immigrant visa interview. Best wishes.See question

Your father would either need to learn English to the level necessary for him to understand all of the questions and answers on the naturalization application in English, and to pass the civics and reading and writing tests in English, or else he would need to have a medical doctor certify that your father has disabilities and/or impairments that prevent him from learning the required level of English and civics knowledge. It would be a good idea to consult directly with an immigration attorney regarding this matter. Best wishes.See question
My husband recently received a letter from USCIS notifying him that his I-485 Adjustment of Status was administratively closed without prejudice in October 2014. Is there any thing he can do to reopen his case without filing a new I-485 and paying...
You could attempt to explain to USCIS that you would like the case to be reopened. USCIS might agree to reopen it, or it might not. Did your husband move? If your husband moved, and did not notify USCIS, then USCIS would likely not reopen the case, because your husband was obligated to notify USCIS of his move. If your husband did not move, or if he moved and properly notified USCIS of the move, then the question becomes, why was the receipt notice returned as undeliverable? You can try to sort this out with USCIS. You might wish to hire an attorney to help you with the process. Best wishes.See question

Thanks you all for your answer, so me and my mother will file two separate I 130 for my single brother to immigrate to USA, but I heared that uscis will accept both at the beginning but in few months uscis will cancel one and keep only one acti...
If you file two separate I-130 Petitions, one from you, one from your mother, both of them for your brother, USCIS should not cancel one. If they are both properly prepared and properly submitted, USCIS should review each of them and make a separate decision for each of them. Best wishes.See question

Yes, you both may file petitions. Your brother may use either one. There is no need to cancel the petition that is not used, although you may cancel one if you wish. Best wishes to you.See question
Will my marriage be recognized in the US when I return, and what visa must I apply on behalf of my spouse?
If your marriage is officially recognized in Brazil, then it will be recognized in the United States. So, be sure to follow all of the procedures to register your marriage legally in Brazil. After you marry, you first will file a petition with USCIS to begin the process for your spouse. After the petition is approved, then your spouse will apply for an immigrant visa. I suggest that you work with an immigration attorney for the best chance of success. Best wishes to you and your partner.See question
May I know what are the document required to travel abroad with Green card ? Do I need to return my current i-94 while traveling out ?
For travel to most countries, you need a valid passport from your country of citizenship, and your valid permanent residence card (green card). Upon return to the United States, you present your passport and green card. If you have a paper version of the I-94, you may present it to US officials upon departing the United States. Best wishes to you.See question
I'm a US citizen. I would like to petition for my brother who currently lives in a War zone where hundreds of people die on a daily basis. Is there any chance my expedite request will be approved.
Unfortunately, expediting your petition won't help, because your brother would need to wait many years, perhaps 10 or more years, to obtain an immigrant visa based on your petition. Depending on your brother's specific situation, there might be some other immigration options available. I suggest that you consult directly with an immigration attorney about the details.
