After being deported in 2004 for a controlled substance case in 95 what are my options at returning home to be with my family and how much will it cost
You are likely permanently inadmissible due to both the drug offense and the aggravated felony. However, if possible, get a family member to review the complete immigration and criminal history to make sure absolutely all avenues of legal immigration are exhausted.See question

I need help in bringing my sister she's married with two kids into the United States
I would concentrate my research on the following types of potential visas: F1 (student), E2 (investor), E1 (trader). With all three of these options, she and her family (as long as they're minors) can enter the US to live and at least go to school. I would also try and find a local attorney to assist you in these processes if necessary. Good Luck!See question

Is the last year or so, we have noticed inordinate delays in processing for adjustment of status. Four months is probably within the normal processing time. As long as you have your work and travel document, there is no reason for concern. Just make sure USCIS has your correct address and wait for their next notice!See question

I don't know any way other than to call the 1 800 number once your case is outside the processing time. From time to time, there are delays sometimes unexplained delays. Hopefully, you did apply for an employment and parole document.See question

My American boyfriend and I (a retired Canadian) don't want to get married, what options are available for me to stay in the USA longer than 6 months?
If you want to live in the USA permanently, then you may qualify for a green card either through an employer who petitions you for residency (more info is needed to see if this is really feasible) or through a family member (USC spouse or adult USC child over 21). As a temporary visitor, you may qualify for either an treaty trader (E1) or Treater investor (e2) or NAFTA Visa (TN), however, either of these options would take you out of retirement. Bottom line-consult with an attorney in person to discuss all your options.See question

In addition to my colleagues response, any employment outside the US is a sign to US immigration authorities you do not intend on living or working in the US which results in abandonment of your residency in the US. If you do want to work is another country temporarily, you should apply for a reentry permit which covers you for two years.See question
