First, if you are subject to two-years foreign residency requirement you cannot get an H-1B visa without the waiver. Second, the H-1B quota for this year is already exhausted, therefore, unless your employer is somehow cap-exempt, your employer cannot file the H-1B petition this year. Alternatively, have your employer file the H-1B petition on your behalf after you have complied with the two-years foreign residency requirement. Please have your employer consult with an immigration lawyer to...
Without reviewing your immigration history, it will be difficult to give a definitive answer. Did the adjudication officer provide any details during the interview? I would recommend consulting with an immigration lawyer. Good luck.
Deliberately providing false information on visa application or petition can be considered as "misrepresentation." It may have serious consequences for any future application/petition for immigration benefit. Please hire a qualified immigration attorney to assist you with your future immigration needs.
Lets consider a hypothetical where you file an immigrant petition for your spouse with USCIS. A diligent USCIS officer may raise an issue whether you have abandoned your LPR status and whether you are even eligible to file the petition. The choice of words that you used to describe your question indicates that you have already done your research. However, your question leaves out some critical details, such as whether you filed taxes in the US, whether you maintained a home in the US, whether...
I agree with all of my colleagues. DUI is considered a criminal offense. No one can predict what kind of provisions will be included or excluded in the Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR). Right now US congress is play ping-pong with the bill :)

Theoretically yes, you should be able to reenter the US using advance parole, BUT, I would not recommend to travel, because the law in this specific area is still evolving and the officers at the port-of-entry may or may not be aware of the nuances of this law. Although, there are reports that people in similar situations with TPS have been able to return to the US using advance parole. I would not recommend it. Again no disrespect to your attorney, he is right, you could be able to return to...
Renewal of your E-2 status depends upon (a) whether the work performed by you as a consultant for other companies constitutes "substantive" or "non-substantive" change in E-2 status, and (b) whether you engaged in unauthorized employment. E-2 regulations are highly complex. Since you performed work for other companies it will potentially complicate your status and ability to renew. As an E-2 principal investor you must manage and not compete directly in the market as a skilled laborer....
