I'm very sorry for your son's condition. As the other attorneys have stated, asylum is not intended to prevent you from returning to your country based on medical or financial hardship - unless those hardships are related to your race, religion, national origin, political opinion, or membership in what's called a "particular social group." So it may be possible to get asylum if, for example, the government in Indonesia would normally treat a child for this condition but they refuse to treat your child because of your religion or political views, but this does not appear to be the case.
You may be able to extend your stay for humanitarian reasons because you can document the purpose and duration of the extension, but this may not provide you with work authorization and it would still require you to go back after the purpose of the extension has lapsed. It will also be a problem if the purpose of the request is open-ended, because an indefinite stay is not permitted, so you would need to show how long the process is expected to last. Another problem is that you may need to show that you can support yourself and pay for the treatment.

My fiancé has his master calendar hearing in March of 16. We already know we have to fight for cancellation of removal. During this time we would like to apply for a work visa for him. Should we turn in form I-130 and I-485 before we go in front o...
The steps you are describing involve very different things. If you're actually trying to apply for a work visa, then you wouldn't use those forms (they are for family-based visas), but if, as I suspect, you mean work authorization, then you can apply for that after filing the cancellation application and again, those forms are not involved. I very, very strongly recommend that you consult an attorney directly to go over the details of the case and the steps you need to follow. As you may realize, removal is a very complicated process, and there is extensive room to make mistakes that will significantly affect your fiancee's rights and applications. If cost is an issue you may want to call every legal service provider on the sheet they gave him. You may need to travel to meet with them, but this is important enough that you should do that. If what you're asking about is work authorization then after filing the EOIR 42B with Texas (prior to the hearing) you can use the receipt to file an I-765 and request work authorization. If you're actually talking about a work visa, then a lot more information is needed, and if you're actually talking about adjustment of status (the process involving I-130/I-485 applications) then the process is completely different. Also, there is no guilt or innocence in immigration court, it's a civil process, not criminal. Pleading is more complicated than that. Good luck!See question

Asylum is not granted as a result of general conditions in one's country. You have to show that the harm you fear is on account of your race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a "particular social group." If you claim that violence is indiscriminate, then you will not qualify for asylum. Asylum can be very complicated, it is very fact dependent, and a denial may lead to removal (deportation) proceedings. You should visit http://www.uscis.gov/humanitarian/refugees-asylum/asylum and consult an attorney directly to learn more about the process in order to decide whether applying for asylum would be appropriate in your particular situation. I suggest doing so soon too, because asylum applicants generally have to file their applications within a year of their arrival in the US. Factors such as maintaining lawful status will affect your filing deadline, but it's good to be aware that there is a deadline. Good luck!See question

If you will have been married for 5 years in November then the timeline is a bit confusing. Your green card should not have been conditional, and you should not have had to file an I-751 prior to expiration (in fact, your green card probably should not have been expiring this year). You may want to meet with an attorney to review your card and your timeline and ensure that you are on the right track. Apart from that, however, these applications frequently take many months to decide - that's why the receipt notice states that it is proof of your ability to travel and work for another year. You can inquire about the status of your application at a USCIS Field Office by making an "InfoPass" appointment online at https://infopass.uscis.gov// or you can call 1 (800) 375-5283. They may just tell you that the application is pending, in which case, you should wait and ensure that you always update USCIS promptly about any address changes. Good luck!See question

HIV was removed as a ground of inadmissibility as of January 2010, so it should not be an issue. Here is a link about that from USCIS: http://www.uscis.gov/archive/archive-news/human-immunodeficiency-virus-hiv-infection-removed-cdc-list-communicable-diseases-public-health-significance
In your case, however, it is unclear what the basis of your adjustment application will be. I will not go into that because I don't think it's the focus of your question, but make sure to confirm your eligibility before filing anything. Good luck!See question

That depends on a number of details that are missing from your question, such as your immigration status, the type of relatives you filed I-130s for, where they are, and their immigration and criminal history. I'm attaching a link to a USCIS page with information about the process. Good luck!
My son and I are Canadian citizens with green cards that are about to expire. I am divorced. My ex husband is a Canadian citizen as well. He has no intention of moving back. I am looking to find an attorney with experience in this field.
Permanent resident status is independent of the expiration of the green card. You can renew the green cards regardless of your marital status. In the case of a conditional green card (often based on marriage, but not if your husband is also Canadian - you can also have a conditional green card on another basis), the process is different, but again, the date on the card is not determinative of your status. You should consult an attorney directly to discuss the specifics of your case, as this site is only intended for general advice. Good luck!See question
a person arrives at o hare chicago, il and facing deportation can it be stopped at attorney efforts or some one posting bond
Whether proceedings at an airport can be stopped depends on the specific details of the case. The process varies greatly depending on factors such as what the basis for the proceedings are (lack of documentation, suspected fraud, criminal history, prior immigration violations, etc.) and the status of the person detained (returning permanent resident, non-immigrant visitor, asylum seeker, temporary worker, etc.). I suggest contacting an attorney directly as soon as possible to discuss the details, because this website is only for general advice. I also suggest doing so promptly, because these cases are usually time-sensitive and the detained person's access to communication or to an attorney may be limited. Good luck!See question
what happens during the immigration hold and is there a chance he can still stay in the states?
What happens next will depend on his immigration and criminal history. I suggest you contact an immigration attorney promptly and start gathering records regarding his criminal history, immigration history, and family and property ties to the community. Unfortunately this page is not designed for individual case analysis, only general information, and there is a lot of missing information in your question that could significantly affect his situation. I'm attaching a link to an Avvo guide I wrote about this subject. I hope you find it helpful. Good luck!See question
Since they arrived in the back home country her kids are having serious medical issues. Because of very lack of medical treatments and services her kids health are in very difficult condition. Is there any way that my sister could bring her childr...
Generally speaking, she may be able to return in non-immigrant status with a waiver or waivers of her past grounds of inadmissibility (things like falling out of status last time, or any departure bars she may have triggered, etc.). She would need to carefully document the children's medical needs. She may also be able to obtain humanitarian parole to enter with the children. One issue, however, is that these types of admissions are temporary. She may need to show very strong ties to her home country, particularly if she already violated status once, and the children's medical treatment has to be temporary. They are less likely to let her return if they think the children will need ongoing care requiring her to stay indefinitely. You should also ensure that she can show means of support and payment of medical bills. You need to consult directly with an attorney. This website is for general information and your sister requires advice that is specific to her case. Good luck!See question
