    Get a good criminal defense attorney. Generally, a conviction for driving under the influence (DUI) is not considered a "crime involving moral turpitude." If this is your only criminal violation, chances are good that you will NOT be placed in removal proceedings if convicted for one DUI. However, I would still recommend getting the best criminal defense you can get. And the criminal defense attorney should contact a good immigration attorney to make sure that if you do enter a plea,...

    Not sure how your husband entered the US. If he entered legally, he can probably apply for Adjustment of Status (form I-485) and employment authorization (form I-765). This is if you are currently in the US. It's also not clear where you are when you say "I must return home." This makes me think you may be abroad. Curtis Pierce 213 327 0044 www.cpvisa.com

    It will likely get approved. However, unless you go to 300 North Los Angeles in person, it will take several weeks. If you simply send it by mail, it could take months. If you need it right away, you need to go to the Advance Parole unit in person. An attorney can help.

    No, you are not still entitled to a worker’s permit. To obtain work authorization, you must have a pending application which allows for employment authorization. Our office has tried unsuccessfully to obtain employment authorization for clients whose cases have been administratively closed. CIS has requested the notice with the next court hearing of removal proceedings. That is the problem. So even if there was a pending application for a worker’s permit before the case was administratively...
