Many states have no-fault divorce, meaning that you do not have to establish abuse or any other reason/fault for the marriage not working out. As far as your immigration case, you can proceed based on either divorce or abuse, but there are some procedural aspects to consider. These cases are tough and I recommend that you hire an experienced immigration attorney to help maximize your chances of staying in the US permanently.See question
A friend of mine is married to a citizen, an his husband want to file his petition for recidence, both are married in Florida.
Absolutely. The US citizen can file the petition at any point after the marriage. If done correctly, in Florida, the process is taking about 6 months from the time the documents are accepted by USCIS to the interview. This can be a complicated process, with many forms and voluminous supporting documentation, so I highly recommend that your friends hire an immigration attorney to represent them in this exciting yet difficult process. Good luck!See question
i applied for citizenship as i thought after alll this time i could apply and was then held by ice for the old crimes committed ,can they deport me ,i have not had an arrest since
It depends on what the crimes are. For certain crimes, it is definitely a possibility. If ICE has detained you, there's a good chance that there is at least an argument for deportation. You need a good lawyer on your side. Hire one before it's too late.See question

It may certainly be possible. However, significantly more information would be needed to determine whether she meets the definition for "extraordinary ability" in her field. She must meet at and be able to fully document at least three of the criteria for extraordinary ability found here: https://www.uscis.gov/working-united-states/temporary-workers/o-1-visa-individuals-extraordinary-ability-or-achievement. Media coverage alone is not sufficient for an O-1 visa. You must show at least two other factors, as well as prove that the media coverage was by major trade publications or other major media. O-1 visas are extremely complex and I would recommend that your wife consult regarding her possible eligibility for this status with an experienced immigration attorney. Good luck.See question

Because your current marriage is not legally valid, you would need to get married again before proceeding with any application for immigration benefits through marriage. You can't annul a marriage that was not legal in the first place, so you would just need to get married again. However, there are certain complications, including bigamy, which could become an issue under state law. I would recommend a thorough consultation with an experienced immigration lawyer.See question

Where is your uncle now? Is he in the US or outside the US? Who were the people who were trying to kill him and why? Your uncle may possibly have an asylum case, but substantially more information is needed to determine his options.See question

There are circumstances where you can file the I-751 while the divorce is still pending, and then provide the final dissolution of marriage within 87 days of receiving the Request for Evidence from USCIS. Agreeing to the divorce is not going to hurt your position from an immigration standpoint, but you may be losing your right to fight for certain rights you may have under family law. You should consult with a family law attorney to see if you have important rights that you may be giving up by agreeing to the divorce now. For immigration purposes, you will need to prove that you entered into the marriage in good faith, that is, not just for the purposes of obtaining your green card. Whether you agree to the divorce now or later is not going to affect that inquiry, as long as you have other evidence of your relationship and the fact that you entered into the marriage for the purpose of building a life together. In my experience, I-751 cases are tough because the government often asks for things that are not required by law and individuals working without an attorney find themselves painted into a corner. They feel like if the government is asking for a document, it must be required, and if the applicant does not have the requested document, they may just give up on their case. It's important to know that the government makes mistakes and I-751 cases are an area where those mistakes happen often. Whatever you decide to do about your divorce, I would highly recommend that you work with an experienced immigration attorney on your I-751 case. Good luck!See question
It is known that the request family-based green card take long time, especially for brothers and sisters.
Premium processing is not available for this type of case. However, even if it was available, it would not help. Premium processing allows for a quicker decision on your petition, but it does not affect visa waiting times. The 4th preference category for brothers and sisters of US citizens is backlogged not due to processing times, but due to the fact that there are only a certain number of immigrant visas available every year and there are more people who have applied for them than the number available, so there is a wait. In the case of the sibling category, the wait is well over 10 years. Premium processing would not allow you to "jump the line" and get your green card sooner than in the 10+ years currently reflected in the DOS visa bulletin.See question
