As soon as you two are married, your husband will be able to apply for the "one-step" I-130/I-485 "Adjustment of Status" ("AOS") (marriage-based "green card" application). If correctly filed the first time around, your husband will be able to obtain his work and travel permits within 70-80 days, AOS interview within 2 months after that, where his "green card" should be approved, with the "plastic" card in your mail box some 2 weeks afterwards. It will do both of you a world of good to engage a lawyer from the very beginning, to avoid all mistakes & what could be endless frustration, since each omission and mistake will throw you aback by months. Last, but not least, the fact that you are 7 years older than your future husband will not make things any easier (or faster).See question
We are legal U.S residents, we used an address for a house which we did not reside in, what are the risks for doing that ? We are experiencing a number of family issues, primarily my father trying to control the family, especially my mother. He is...
You will likely not be facing any "problems" whatsoever from any type of "authorities", if that's what you are worried about, especially not given the situation and special circumstances you are faced with. A private consultation with a lawyer will do you a world of good..See question
Any day now or at worse, within the next 2 weeks. Hopefully you gave a valid US address. Make sure your complete name is clearly spelled out and visible for the postal worker to see.See question

The "best and easiest" way to become a "green card' holder first, then a US citizen, is to marry a US citizen for love. Any other way will take a lot of money and many years and will likely not work, unless can apply for and obtain political asylum (an unrealistic expectation, when already have a Lebanese refugee (or son of refugees) "document").See question
I am working under H1B and my employer wants to lay me off because we have no much work and he cannot reduce my hours to be part time and not full time because of my visa ; So can my employer switch my visa to E2 on behalf of me and by then he can...
Have an experienced immigration attorney examine your situation in detail. You seem to be confused:
1. "Part-time H-1B employment" IS permissible;
2. For your employer to be able to petition you under E-2 status, the Business/Company must be majority (at least 50%) owned by nationals of an E-2 Treaty country. Those majority stockholders/owners must not be "green card holders" and/or US citizens. If they are either, then no "E-2" possibility for you.
I have a PhD from a US university and both teaching and administrative experience for more than 10 years.
No. You cannot and should not "self-petition". You will unfortunately fail if you do. You need a "sponsor", be it a private employer or an academic institution.See question
I have an EAD through my husband's green card application process (EB2). The EAD expires on Dec 3rd. We filed for an extension on Sept 21 but haven't received approval yet. I have an old H1 from a previous employer that I didn't get transferred to...
You have to stop working as soon as your current EAD expires. You can only resume once your new EAD has been approved and you have it in your hands.
You are not going to be "out of status", you have and EB-2 related I-485 AOS application in process.See question

My Green Card has only first 18 characters of my Last Name. Is it ok?
That is more than "OK" if it can easily be established that those 18 characters and you are one and the same individual. Green card last names can only be up to 18 characters long, and you seem to have reached that limit. Happens more often than you think and it's nothing to worry about.See question

Unfortunately next to zero based on the facts presented here. Mom should not even bother applying for the visa and have a denial on her record. You will have to wait until obtaining a "green card" yourself, then applying and obtaining US citizenship, before you can sponsor your mom for a "green card" to come and live with you in the US.See question
