I see a few issues here: one is that you entered so close to your 16th birthday. You will need some kind of documentation to show that you did enter before you turned 16. Another issue is about the misrepresentation to the immigration officers and possible removal. USCIS has not stated that a misrepresentation will make a person ineligible for deferred action status however it may be an issue in your immigration case in the future. If the possible removal happened before June 15, 2007 you...
I agree with my colleague: 1) the 2 years of conditional residence is counted in the three years, and 2) the 18 months must not be consecutive however long periods of time outside of the US could be considered abandonment of your lawful permanent residency. You don't want to have a gap of 6 months.
I agree that it is important to know why you were denied. I recommend consulting with an attorney to make sure you are eligible and to help you to prove your eligibility for DACA. You will have to pay the fee again when reapplying. Good luck.
I agree. There isn't a fee waiver in this situation. It is also necessary to show that the applicant/beneficiary will not be a financial burden on the U.S. government and requesting a fee waiver may work against your overall case.
As Mr. Behar has stated, you may have different options that an attorney could help you with. VAWA is for these kinds of situations where one should not have to choose between gaining a green card through a violent relationship or being deported/ without lawful status. VAWA may be a good option for you but you should reach out to an immigration attorney in your area for a consultation about your options.
Convictions outside of the U.S. can have consequences on an immigration case. Assessing whether it will make the applicant ineligible is a complicated analysis. It would also be important to see whether the minor was convicted as a minor or as an adult. Please consult with an immigration attorney before applying for naturalization.
Where one already has their 10 year lawful permanent resident card, a subsequent divorce would generally not affect that status. In fact, consulting an immigration attorney for naturalization eligibility is advised.
I agree with my colleague. You must meet the residency requirement to maintain your own lawful permanent residence. This means that extended travel outside of the U.S. can cause you to abandon your lawful permanent residence status. It is not necessarily required that you be in the U.S. during the whole petition process for a spouse, however you must have a residence in the U.S. You will want to consult an attorney regarding the sponsorship requirement as well.
