My EAD application is in but it was a little late in applying (less than 3 months to the expiration date). I know they usually take exactly 3 months to come through. If the current EAD expires before I get the new card, do I have to stop working? ...
No, you cannot. Such employment would be unauthorized.See question
Hi, I work as a consultant at the client location of my employer. On the n-400 form which is the valid address to put in the employment details section - the address of the client where I worked, or the address of my employer who pays my salary?
You should list the address of your employer. In addition, you should seriously consider using an immigration lawyer when applying for citizenship. If you choose not to use one, at least inform yourself of the risks. Do not apply on your own simply because non-lawyer friends, who know nothing about immigration law, are opining you can handle a naturalization application on your own. I currently have naturalization applications that were randomly and bizarrely held up in security checks for a long time, well over 12 months, and required constant communication with USCIS to put them back on track. The kinds of stresses you can encounter on your own are likely not worth the money you will save.See question
I came to usa 2 months ago on a visitor visa and now am in love with a girl and she is us citizen, we gona get married soon, so what should we do, file for adjustment or status or do consular processing. thanks
It would be easiest to apply for Adjustment of Status provided that you meet the eligibility requirements. With the assistance of an attorney, you can travel fairly quickly even if you apply for Adjustment of Status. You will not have to wait until the EAD arrives in the mail which can take 60 days, and even more than that based upon recent cases that were processed. Pay close attention to travel advisories being circulated by immigration lawyers before traveling abroad. Definitely speak with an immigration lawyer before traveling abroad. Have a great week.See question

You can petition for him to become a permanent resident. Whether the petition will be successful depends in large part on his background. He may be able to apply to become a permanent resident without leaving the US (a process known as Adjustment of Status). Speak to an immigration lawyer before you embark on this process. Have a great day and a good week.See question
I have a combo "EAD+Advanced Parole" card. Can I make a trip abroad ? If yes, what are implications ?
There is no guarantee. It depends on your background. However, since Matter of Arrabally, there is a lot less risk in traveling abroad on Advance Parole. See https://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/files/publications/14_1120_memo_arrabally.pdf. You will, however, have to go through secondary inspection upon re-entering the U.S. If you want to assess the risk in your specific case, you will need to speak with an immigration lawyer. In most cases, there is not issue with re-entry. Have a great week.See question

You should speak with a lawyer before doing anything further. You should definitely not leave the U.S. without speaking to a lawyer. Have a good day.See question

There are a lot of considerations before deciding whether to apply for U.S. citizenship. Many people from Asian countries do not wish to become U.S. citizens for a variety of sound reasons, including substantial additional tax liability upon inheriting property in their native lands. Before deciding whether to apply for U.S. citizenship, sit down and discuss your options with an immigration lawyer, even if just over the phone. You should also check with a lawyer in Taiwan as to any drawbacks to obtaining U.S. citizenship if you're from Taiwan. Have a great week.See question

Some immigration applications go awry for reasons that many consider silly. But the law can have crazy consequences. Using an immigration lawyer versus filing an application for yourself is like getting an insurance policy. There's no reason to give yourself a crash course in immigration law, and gamble with your future here. Have a professional assist you. The names of the forms, or which box to check, or what to write in a box on the form, aren't necessarily what will derail an application. Have a great weekend.See question
