I have been married to my husband for 15 years. I hold US citizenship. My husband never completed his immigration status process. The latest was that he filed change of status when I became a citizen, 10 years ago. Do we have to start the process all over at this point or is our "case" still in the system? Is this something we can do on our own or should we have a lawyer? How long will it take until he will receive his green card? When we get the process started again can he go and get his social security, or do we have to wait until he actually has the card? How can we file taxes? Can he is some sort of "in progress" number from INS?
