As an initial matter, your new employer will need to determine whether you are subject to the H-1B cap or not. More specific information is needed to make that determination. You and your new employer should consult with an experienced immigration attorney.See question

I think you should consider consulting with another attorney. Filing a frivolous asylum claim can result in your being barred from receiving any immigration benefits for the rest of your like. Likewise, did your attorney tell you about the 4000 per year quota on grants for Cancellation of Removal? There is a very long wait list ahead of you. Additionally, ICE will not just write you up for removal proceedings because you have asked. None of this is as simple as you appear to think it is. Proceed with an abundance of caution.See question
I never received any notice , not even after requesting online to resend to proper address , only says request completed but still nothing received , now I am not yet in removal but my visa is revoked and I 485 based on I 360 as well .
Something is amiss here. Do you mean that your I-360 and I-485 were denied? That is much different then an I-360 being revoked which required a prior approval. (I-485's cannot be revoked, but rescission proceedings can be instituted instead of removal proceedings. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can help you sort through this.See question
I want to open a business abroad and then have my daughter apply for L1 visa based on that business. Does the company abroad need to be opened for a number of years before I can open the branches in the us?
An L-1 alien must work for the related company abroad for at last 1 year in either a managerial, executive, or specialized knowledge position prior to an L-1 petition being filed. Thus, the foreign business must be in existence for at least 1 year. There are, of course, many more requirements for a successful L-1 visa petition. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney for individualized advice.See question

I am 20 years old , dependent child of an L1 visa holder and i want to marry my boyfriend who is a citizen . What could happen if i marry him?
If you marry your U.S. Citizen boyfriend then your L-2 status will end by operation of law since you will no longer be considered a dependent of your L-1 parent. However, your then husband would be able to petition on your behalf for you to become a lawful permanent resident of the United States.

I am currently a Danish Citizen in the US as a Permanent Resident Alien. I was convicted of a moral turpitude (non-violent) felony in 1994/1995. I went on vacation to Denmark in 2004/2005 and upon re-entering the US, my green card was taken at cus...
The short answer is that you should not have any trouble traveling assuming you have been in no further trouble as you claim. In the intervening years the Supreme Court issued a decision stating that so long as he conviction occurred prior to April 1, 1997 and your trip abroad is brief, innocent and casual, then you cannot be charged with being inadmissible due to that conviction. Thus, there is a good chance that you really didn't need the 212(c) waiver the begin with, but its more or les academic in your situation now anyway.
Consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review your case. If you have no further criminal hisotry then you appear to be eligible to apply for naturalization to become a U.S. citizen.See question

There is technically no "minimum criteria." An H-1B petition can be approved for an alien to work for a company that has no revenues and is losing money. The key is to show that sufficient work exists to justify that a legitimate H-1B caliber job opportunity exists.
