    Hiring a local immigration attorney is not necessary for most immigration cases. However, some matters such as a marriage-based case where an interview will be scheduled at the local USCIS office are best handled by a local immigration attorney who is familiar with the local office procedures.

    You can add her to your I-589 application at anytime with proof that you are legally married. However, she won't derive any asylee status until your case is approved. I strongly recommend hiring an immigration attorney to help you with your case.

  4. L1A visa holder. Company is applying for Green Card for me, Do they need to File EAD?

    I would recommend filing for an EAD card and Advance parole, even if you decide to continue working and traveling internationally on your L-1A visa. The $1070.00 filing fee for the I-485 application includes the filing fees for both the I-765 and the Advance parole and all renewal fees for those applications. It's a good deal! Additionally, if your job situation changes, the EAD and Advance Parole may come in handy. I would discuss this further with your company's immigration attorney.

    I would recommend consulting with a US immigration lawyer to explore all the options that might be available for your brother. Your mother and father won't be able to apply for his permanent residence until they become citizens and the wait line is very long for this category. Thus, you may want to explore other employment-based options.
