My friend in sponsoring me has joint sponser her green card is expired but she's in the process of getting her citizenship, will the affects it?
I agree with Mr. Boyer on this one: If your friend is a Conditional Permanent Resident who is herself still in the I-751 process of removing conditions on her own green card, and she has a Joint Sponsor (which means she & her spouse didn't have enough income on their own to meet 125% of the poverty limit), then it seems unlikely that she now has enough income by herself to serve as a Joint Sponsor for you. Find a Joint Sponsor who is already a US citizen and earns enough to qualify.See question

Yes, if your brother is an F-1 status violator whose visa has been revoked & he has remained in the US, the US Consulate is indeed likely to take that into account when considering a new F-1 visa application by you.See question

If you entered the United States with an immigrant visa, and handed over the sealed immigrant packet from the embassy to US Customs & Border Protection when you were inspected and admitted, then you are indeed an immigrant & should get your green card. HOWEVER, it is also a requirement to have paid the immigrant fee to USCIS and registered for ELIS so that they will indeed manufacture and send you the green card. Did you do that?File Online

I am on an E3D with a valid EAD through 2018. My spouse may be adjusting to an H1-B and I to H4. If my H4 status is eligible for an EAD, could I continue to work on the 'old' (but unexpired) EAD, despite it's connection to a previous status?
First, please note that your spouse is changing status to H-1B: "Adjusting" status is a legal term of art which refers ONLY to an application for permanent residence, not to changes between two temporary visa classifications.
Second, once your spouse changes to H-1B status and you change to H-4 status, you will not be allowed to keep working on your E-3D EAD card, as you will no longer be in E-3 status. Also note that you will not immediately become eligible to apply for a new EAD, as there are limitations on when an H-4 spouse may do so, typically when the H-1B has been sponsored for permanent residence and has either an approved I-140 immigrant petition or a post-6th-year H-1B extension based on a PERM case filed over a year ago. There is also the "compelling circumstances" EAD but that too requires having an already-approved I-140 petition.See question
I am on my 6th year of h1b expiring next year on Aug 31, 2018 and have an additional recapture time of 4 months. I found out that as long as my ETA 9089 is filed, i should be able to receive an H1B extension. With the current processing times, how...
This is a loaded question, as the time from starting a case to filing the ETA 9089 depends on the employer's staff involved in recruitment conducting all the required elements correctly, recording everything accurately & not messing it up, and the process is more or less designed to trip them up. PERM recruitment is not like real-world recruitment: it is a complex & rigid dance, with many prescribed (& proscribed) steps, and one misstep sends everybody back to the beginning. The sponsored worker cannot be involved in PERM recruitment at all; it depends on the timely efforts of the employer, and even with a knowledgeable attorney guiding the process, there are plenty of opportunities for anyone involved in advertising & screening applicants to drop the ball. The prevailing wage determination will take 90 days, and recruitment can be completed in 3 to 4 months if everything goes perfectly, which it rarely does.See question
I'm currently living out of the country and plan to move back with in the next year. I will be getting married next year as well, so how long do I have to wait before applying for my husband?
It depends whether once you are married you will be living together abroad in a consular district that has a local overseas USCIS office. Most US citizen spouses must first file an I-130 petition for their foreign spouse with USCIS in the United States, which takes a lot longer and thus should be filed as soon as you get married, but certain spouses residing together abroad in places where there is a USCIS office can file their petition with that office. You should consult with an immigration attorney in a private setting about the details of your situation.See question
Good evening, LPR sponsoring spouse here. I-130 accepted in January. it's been 6 months now. Does Notification of acceptance of my I-130 mean approval? Thank you
No, it does not - acceptance just means the filing is sufficient for USCIS to move forward with processing. When your I-130 petition for your F2A spouse is approved, you will get a Form I-797 Notice of Approval from USCIS.See question
My mother married an American and we are from the Philippines. Our application the I-485 is still pending but we already applied for the form I-131. I want to go back to the Philippines to finish my studies.
If you leave the US before the I-131 is approved and the EAD/AP card issued, they may determine that you have abandoned your application for permanent residence. Sit tight.See question
I got TPS and also EAD from TPS while being in US in August 2015. Before that I entered US first time on F-2 in April 2015. My husband got H-1b picked up in lottery during the same year in June 2015. After getting TPS and EAD I travelled to Nepal ...
You can use the H-4 visa stamp to enter the US if your spouse is still employed in the H-1B job and maintaining valid H-1B status: Spouse must either be traveling with you, on his H1B visa, or else he must be physically present in the US already, at the H-1B job, in which case it is prudent to travel with your marriage certificate and copies of your husband's current status documents and most recent paystubs. However, as you have correctly surmised, entry into the US in H-4 status means you will lose your TPS status and TPS-based EAD.See question

Do list your US citizen child on the DS-260, but there will be a question to clearly indicate that he is NOT applying with you, since the child is a US citizen and therefore does not need an immigrant visa.See question
