As part of the adjustment of status process, you can apply for a travel document (no additional filing fee). Once you have that document, you can travel while it is valid. Processing times vary to get the document but should take about 2-3 months (check USICS.gov for more exact times based on your location). Once you re-enter using that document, you will no longer be in L1 status. I'm assuming there is not a criminal record with my above answer.See question

You are able to file a self-petition to remove conditions (that means without your husband) if you can prove your marriage was entered into in good faith, or you were subject to abuse or cruelty or you would suffer extreme hardship if you were to be removed from the United States.
Given you were the victim of what sounds like multiple instances of adultery, I think you will have a viable case on possibly more than one of the grounds. I would suggest meeting an immigration attorney before you take any steps, such as moving out, so you are clear of your options and steps you should take.See question
I'm on an assult charge and want to go to Mexico for a family event and need to know if I can get a passport to go
If you are seeking a Mexican passport because you a citizen of Mexico, then that will be a decision of the Mexican Embassy to issue you a new one. They should issue you a passport even if you have a pending or finalized simple assault.
If you are a U.S. Citizen, the U.S. State Department should also you a US Passport even if you have a misdemeanor assault charge.

As my colleagues have stated, after you apply for an assuming you are granted Deferred Action, you will have to determine if you want to apply for a travel document (on form I-131). You should with legal counsel carefully determine if your travel is worth the potential risk. Despite the recent ruling in Matter of Arrabally, foreign travel may have future negative consequences for you.See question

Can you get: cell phone bills, medical records, doctor's bills, school transcripts, rent receipts, utility bills, employment records, bank records, church docs, parental information, taxes, paystubs, W-2's, 1099's, money order receipts, children's birth certificates, passport entries, letters between you and another person or organization, title and vehicle registration, DMV records, rental agreements, postmarked letters, receipts, and any other relevant documentation.
USCIS has stated even letters between you and another person/organization. Also get affidavits from the parents of the kids you babysat. Dont' give up on this. Think hard.See question
He is being charged for no license, leaving the scene of an accident and and failing to yeild. He was apppointed a lawyer on August 20,2012. He has been here for 18 yrs and has never gotten in trouble.
Generally, if he is not issued a bond by the criminal magistrate/judge, he will have to wait until his criminal case is completed. Once he is released from criminal custody, either on bond or the conclusion of his criminal case, ICE has 48 hours to pick him up, assuming he has a detainer. The frist opportunity for his release from ICE will be when they pick him up. If they do not release him on a bond/ankle bracelet/recognizance, then they will likely transfer him to one of the ICE detention centers where he will have to seek a bond redetermination before an Immigration Judge. These are extremely difficult cases. I think you should strongly consider hiring an attorney to increase the odds of his release.See question

If the DV conviction was under VA code 18.2--57.2 and it was handled well you should be ok, but then again if you got 2 years probation, etc., that means it was a conviction. It 's too great a risk to travel without a simple one-time consult with an attorney. Get the certified disposition (front and back) and show it to an experienced crim/imm atty (such as some of those who have answered here) to give you the green or red light to travel.See question
