Can my USC wife use only a copy of either her birth certificate or passport, or must she use both together as I file the AOS package? What proof or supporting documents do I need
In order to prove her citizenship, her birth certificate may be enough (assuming she was born in the United States). As far as the other supporting documentation that you need, it's a pretty long list that must be customized based on the circumstances of your individual case. Talk to an experienced immigration attorney.See question

Depending on whether either case resulted in a conviction / admission or your part, you may be found ineligible for naturalization for lack of good moral character. Take whatever paperwork you have for both criminal cases and see an experienced immigration attorney for a consultation.See question
my husband is an asylum applicant waiting for an interview date since 3 years, now we got married, i am a US citizen, is it possible to fill Form I-130 to petition a permanent resident visa for him and can he fill at the same time Form I-485 to ad...
There is not enough information in your question to determine whether your husband is eligible for adjustment of status. If he is, and he is not in removal proceedings, you should be able to file both the I-130 and the I-485 at the same time. This is too complicated to try to undertake on your own - hire a good lawyer.See question
iam waiting for my i485 approval my mom is severely sick in nepal and I need to go visit her asap , can I expedite my greencard , to go and care for her
Depending on the nature of your case, it may or may not be possible to expedite the processing of your green card case. But even if you can't expedite it, it may be possible to obtain an emergency travel document, so that you can travel and see your mom. If you don't already have an attorney helping you with your green card case, schedule a consultation with someone asap.See question

A domestic violence conviction would make you deportable. You need a good criminal defense attorney working in tandem with an experienced immigration attorney - to have a chance of keeping your status and getting a green card down the road.See question

Congratulations on your upcoming marriage!
In response to your questions:
1. Everything should be fine, as long as it's a real marriage and you're not subject to any grounds of inadmissibility (criminal record is just one of the possible grounds).
2. Yes, there is no length of time you're required to have lived in the U.S. before filing for a green card.
3. Hire an experienced immigration attorney and you should be fine.
I entered the U.S. without inspection about 8 years ago (basically I snuck over the border from Mexico). I am from Brazil. I have been living in the U.S ever since. I married my wife this year. She is an American citizen. I want to file the right ...
As you now know from all of the other responses, you are ineligible for adjustment of status, as you did not make a lawful entry. Depending on the details of your situation, there may be ways for you to get your permanent resident status but you would, most likely, be required to process your immigrant visa in Brazil before coming back to live in the U.S. legally. This is a complex area of the law and you need the best possible legal representation.See question
Hi, I have 2 year green card married with USC but he just left me. My GC is gonna expire in May 2017. I know I have to remove conditions, What should I do?
This makes the goal of removing the conditions on your residence much more complicated, but not impossible to achieve. You need the best possible legal representation.See question
I am holding an F-1 visa. I plan to marry my girlfriend who is an American citizen. I plan not to apply for AOS for a while. Will it be a problem to re-entry the US and apply for the permanent residency later? Thank you so much.
It may be a problem at entry and/or it may become a problem at the time of your adjustment. If you have no intent to return to your home country at the time you enter the U.S. in F-1 status, you're inadmissible as a student.See question

There are many of us out there - you have to research and pick the attorney who you want to work with. Fulbright waiver cases are not easy, unfortunately.See question
