Immigration stop and cancel my visa band me for 5yrs for appling again and accuse me of doing narcotics or working in there country. So the had shackle my in the US department homeland security area and send me home on the next flight.
You really need to seek the advice of an attorney here.
A reentry bar or ground for inadmissibility would exist even if you were to marry a citizen. Some have waivers available, potentially based on hardship to a citizens spouse.
However, certain narcotics offenses are a permanent bar, and it isn't clear what your actual situation is from the question.

I am currently working under J-1 visa sponsored by the US government. I am planning to start a company on my own. To my understanding, my visa doesn't allow me to work for employers other than the one listed on my DS2019 form. My question is: ...
You're correct that you are limited to employment with the entity listed on your current J-1.
You can legally form a company and be a shareholder - but then the question is, what can you DO for this company? Almost anything you do would be considered for the benefit of this US company, and would so be considered unauthorized employment. True of negotiating and signing contracts, hiring, or otherwise serving as an executive.
Plus, since your J-1 is of limited duration, how would you pursue the business of the company long-term if it becomes successful? Not clear whether your J-1 carries a requirement that you return to your last country of residence abroad, as some J-1s do.
I suggest speaking with an attorney directly concerning more viable longer-term options for pursuing your business.See question
I was really gutted when I recently received dreaded RFE for my H1B petition. After doing some research I gathered that RFE is no road map for success :( It has to be read, understood properly and addressed with the best possible details to suppor...
First thing, let's get away from the idea that receiving an RFE necessarily means that anything was wrong with the initial submission. Very often we get RFEs asking entirely or almost entirely for materials and discussion submitted in the initial submission, and simply refer them to the pages of the filing in their possession where documents/information requested resides.
Is it possible that the RFE is a result of actual flaws in the initial submission/inadequacies of the current attorney's preparation? Yes, absolutely.
But, RFEs are routine and not necessarily tied to submission quality - hardly an "awful result" - merely a delay in most cases. Spend your time gathering any needed information and responding to your attorney's requests rather than trying to "manage" the attorney, who is significantly more familiar with the process than you are.
You can of course get a second opinion from another attorney.See question

You need to address this with an attorney - quickly.
While there's a slight possibility of a "nunc pro tunc" extension (filing an extension now and asking USCIS to treat it as if it had been filed before the 9/30 expiration date with the argument that it's late for circumstances out of your control), I'm not clear that this would work and if not you're building up more time here without status.
The best option may be to leave near-term and file for more H-1b time now [if eligible] with the expectation that you will get a new stamp and enter from abroad to activate the new H-1B. This may be possible even under AC-21.
If planning to adjust status here, there is a provision that essentially forgives lapses in status and work without authorization up to 180 days.

Even before reading my colleague's answer, I had the same thought that by entering without inspection again after doing this the first time and staying a year before leaving, your husband may have triggered a permanent bar. A lot will depend on dates when these things happened

Really is no such thing as a priority date for a naturalization case. I'm assuming that's just the date you filed.
Typically the green card is surrendered at the oath ceremony. As to timelines, go here: https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/processTimesDisplayInit.do and select your field office, then look at the date currently being worked on for the N-400 (though in reality you may see variation from what's published). It generally isn't useful to contact them unless they are 30 days or more past your date of receipt for published processing time.

I am 20 years old , dependent child of an L1 visa holder and i want to marry my boyfriend who is a citizen . What could happen if i marry him?
Speak with an immigration lawyer about this.
You wouldn't automatically lose L-2 status just by marrying a citizen (though you would be turning 21 in your case).
At the same time, you don't automatically become a green card holder either - you need to go through a process after the marriage to obtain the green card. If the ability to travel internationally is important to you, I suggest beginning that process at least three to four months before you turn 21 to avoid gaps in ability to travel.
Again, speak with a lawyer for further guidance on how to go about the process.See question
Can i petition now my 19 year old step daughter who is living outside the US while we are currently in the process of adjusting the status of her mom, my wife. She came here as a tourist and we married here in the US.We just submitted the form of ...
While I suspect not, you would need to speak with an immigration attorney to be sure.
Assuming you are a citizen, you can petition for a stepdaughter assuming the marriage which created the stepchild/stepparent relationship occurred before her 18th birthday. It's possible that this may have been the case, and you are only dealing with the immigration petition for the mother now.
But, if the marriage was more recent/after the daughter's 18th birthday the step relationship would not have been established in time.
there may be other options for the daughter, so it would make sense to consult an immigration attorney.See question

I can only echo my colleague -this can be extremely, extremely serious with some really horrible consequences.
You need to gather all the information you can about precisely what happened (i.e.: why do you think you may have done this? Do you remember specifically stating that you were a citizen, or having presented a false passport or other document when completing an I-9 form)? Or is something in your E-Verify self check result causing uncertainty?
Get your information and evidence together and speak with an attorney.See question
Good Morning, My mother is a green card holder for 2 years and she would like to start the petition to bring my brother who lives in Ecuador to the US. My brother is married and I had heard that residents can only petition of single adult sons...
Unfortunately, not in these circumstances - a green card holder can petition for a spouse of child under 21 (Family 2A category), or an UNMARRIED child over 21 (Family 2b category). There's no category for a married over 21 child unless and until your mother naturalizes as a US citizen.
Even then, the process can take many years - right now, that category is backlogged by about 11 years.
you/your mother/your brother may wish to consult an attorney to explore other, perhaps faster options for your brother.See question
