Hi, I am US citizen married to none-US and have two children both under 18 years of age. They couldn't acquire a citizenship at birth since I didn't fulfill the Physical Presence required. Recently I received an approval for I-130 petition I fil...
If when they enter the United States with their green card to leave under your legal custody they are still under the age of 18, they will derive citizenship automatically from you. They will be receiving a green card, but by law they will be considered US citizens and will be able to apply for a US passport. They will have to apply for a certificate of citizenship too.See question
Will DHS grant haitians another year of TPS? Current expiration date for TPS is 07/22/2017. Will there be an extension. What authority does the secretary Homeland Security have to terminate or to extend TPS?
No one knows, for now you will have to wait. Also, it's good to evaluate other options you may have just in case they don't.See question
I am not sure if I am paying for 3 affidavit of support or just one. It is for my wife & 2 girls. Thank you
Normally you only pay one AOS fee when your children are derivatives under the mother petition. If you are a US citizen and file a petition separately for each child you may have to pay the AOS for each child, as each of them have their own case. Follow the instructions on the NVC page, and it should indicate whether one or three payments are needed.See question

You indicated that you were charged with domestic violence battery. What was the result of the case (innocent, guilty, withhold adjudication, pretrial intervention?). What really matter is what was the disposition of the case, not the initial charge. In general terms if you are in removal proceedings it would be better for you not to leave the US until the case has been solved. Consult with an experienced immigration lawyer to review the merits of your case.See question
How to adjust status if someone had time without status. The person currently has TP and a parent filed I-130 for his. The priority date is now current, how can that person obtain a green card?
More information is necessary to be able to evaluate the situation. Was the petition filed before April 30, 2001? How old is the beneficiary? Does the petitioner qualify for citizenship? The answers to these questions will determine whether the person is able to file for adjustment of status in the US, or will have to do consular processing. Consult with an experienced immigration lawyer to evaluate your case.See question

A petty theft offense does not disqualify you from DACA, but it will be a factor they will consider at the time of using discretion of whether to grant your DACA case.

Most likely they will not ask you that question, because you should have already given that information in form G-325A. But you have to answer truthfully. Any misrepresentation during the interview could cause you a lot of trouble.See question

Your daughter cannot petition for you until she becomes a US citizen. If you get married, your options will depend on whether your spouse is a resident or a citizen. Also, most likely you will need a waiver at some point, since you entered the US unlawfully and probably will need to obtain your residency at the consulate. For this type of waiver your daughter is not a qualifying relative, but only a spouse or a parent. Consult with an experienced immigration lawyer to evaluate your case.See question
