    In order to obtain legal status in the United States through your marriage, he would need a legal entry into the U.S. However, if he is placed in removal proceedings, there may be some relief available to him. If he leaves the U.S. either voluntarily or through any other means, he would be barred for 10 years from returning to the U.S. There is no waiver for this barr. You should consider having a consultation with an experienced immigration attorney before you decide to any anything.

    Your case needs to be evaluated by an immigration attorney. The attorney needs to look at what has been done and the reason for the denial. There will be a 30 day period to appeal or to seek reconsideration after the denial. The immigration attorney will also look at the options available for you and your husband. There has been no change in the law to allow someone to adjust in the U.S. There are some instances when someone can adjust in The U. S. An immigration attorney can review...

    Married filing joint should penalize taxpayers. I'm no CPA, but I'm guessing they are filing as head of household each dividing the children. This is the only way I know for a married couple to get more money. If they are doing this, they are committing fraud to the US Govt.

    If the children are under the age of 16, both parents have to be present to sign the application to obtain U.S. Passport for the children.

If the other parent objects, check the divorce decree to see if there is any language about obtaining passport and traveling abroad with the children for vacations. If there is no such language, you will have to ask permission from the court to authorize...

    You will need to file a petition to expunge the conviction. Depending on the conviction, it is not a right to have it expunged. The judge may deny the petition. You should hire a criminal defense lawyer to review your record and file the petition for you.
