I started my immigration process last year 08/2016. I obtained a clearance letter from my local police station to file my I-130. Can I use the same clearance letter now 03/2017 to move forward with my application for adjustment of status I-485? Or...
You do not typically need a Police Clearance letter for an I-130 Petition.
It use to be required for adjustment of status case from every jurisdiction (city or county) lived in for more than 6 months or have an arrest in. But, in recent years not typically required just the arrest and court records if applicable.
Still required for Consular processing, but in your case that is not your present processing option as you are present in the USA and so inapplicable for your case.
There is no harm in submitting it as long as its an original certified copy and is less than 12 months old.See question
I'm from Mexico my dad fill the application for me to get a green card on June 5 1996 seen then I'm waiting now I have 35 years old is something I can do. What I can do
You certainly need to consult with an immigration attorney ASAP. From my experience no adjustment of status for a green card takes 21 years. If your understanding is correct, you should have a receipt and USCIS would have sent an interview date by now. If you moved and did not do a change of address, you may have missed a biometrics appointment and interview date. Have you done a Infopass inquiry with USCIS? A FOIA request?
I wonder if you are confusing the fact that your father may have filed an Alien Relative Petition(I-130) on your behalf and you have confused that with a "green card" application? Do you have an I-130 approval notice? Was your father USC at the time or a green card holder himself?
Bring the documents you have and see and attorney, so they can advise you on your current case status. There are more questions than answers generated by your question..See question
I have filed the 1 130 form,I have got a receipt and am awaiting the approval letter.my question is if I should go ahead and file the I 485 ?
It will depend on the type of visa you entered on. If a regular tourist visa B1/B2 then, Yes, you can go ahead and file I-485. it should have been filed with the I-130 from the beginning.
However, if you have a crewman visa C-1/D-1 or certain J-1 with restriction etc then You cannot file and I suggest you get to an attorney ASAP.See question
Hi, i submitted the Ds-260 form but in the section "Work/u.s travel" i put the incorrect visa number...how can i correct them?, is that going be a problem? Some people told me that i can correct it at the interview
The DS260 cannot be corrected after it is submitted. You will need to prepare a sworn statement and have it notarized stating the preparation error and provide the correct information. You can submit the notarized statement to the NVC if processing on your case is not completed and interview set. otherwise, if you already have an interview date, bring the document to the interview and provide it to the consular officer notifying them of the error that that you would like to amend the application.

Baby is 19 months and im 23 years old
Assuming your baby is a US citizen. There is no problem for you to take the child out of the country assuming to have legal custody of that child and the Courts have granted you permission to remove the child from the jurisdiction.
As for the immigration issue how it affects you can vary but you have not provided sufficient information such as your current status to determine if you will have a bar should you try to return. I strongly recommend that you speak to an attorney prior to departure.

We have been living together as a couple since March 2010 and got married in May 2012. He has been here for about 7 years and I want to know if I could ever petition for him. Will he ever be able to be here legally? What can I do?
You did not provide enough detail to give you a specific answer for your situation. However, as a general rule, A US citizen can petition for their illegal spouse even the the spouse is here illegal. BUT how the spouse entered the USA will determine if the can get the green card(adjustment of status) eg. entry on tourist visa adjustment -yes. entry without paper-no. A thorough consult would be needed however in your case.See question
I had a H1 filed in 2008 which was withdrawn later. I then got an L1B in 2010 which is still active with validity till 2013 December. But as L1B will not allow me to switch employeer. Is there any alternative to be able to switch employment?
I agree with the previous attorneys that have responded. The previous Hi has no bearing on your current case. You need to consult with an attorney for this issue.See question
I graduated in 2003 from High School,and qualify in every other requirement, except this one. What should I do?
Unfortunately, the answer is NO. You had to have arrive in the US before your 16th birthday and prior to June 15th 2007. Good luck

My husband is a U.S. resident, and he has made the application for the naturalization last week. My son and I are on a visa F-1, F-2, since we entered the country We have never been illegal. We are going to apply for our residence I-130 this week ...
I would not recommend that you withdraw from school after filing the Form I-130, as this application does not give you any protection from deportation or removal. Your husband can file both I-130s, as that verifies the spouse relationship and stepparent/stepchild relationship. However, you should not withdraw and jeopardize your F-1 status until your husband is sworn in as a USC and you can file for the adjustment of status as if anything happens and he cannot naturalize for whatever reason and you become illegal you will not be able to adjust here in the USA. Furthmore, if that happens and you overstay and require consular processing you have have additional issues such problems re-entering the USA.See question
I would like to move to the US with them so that they can learn their country's history. I have a sister that is a US citizen and one that is a green card holder. I have never lived there before and all my medical bills for having my kids are paid...
Your children who are citizens will be able to petition for you when one of them reach the age of 21 . Your sister who is a US citizen can petition for you but it will take approx 11 years for your visa to become available. Your only other option maybe employment based but that answer is not straight forward either. it will depend on your education and work experience; whether an employer is willing to sponsor you? Whether a visa is available and whether you are interest in non-immigrant visa or immigrant visa.See question
