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.

Generally speaking, simple DUI is not considered to be a crime involving moral turpitude and is therefore not an offense which leads to a finding of inadmissibility. Nonetheless, USCIS will often not complete adjudication on an application for permanent residence when the alien has a pending criminal mater, but will hold the case in abeyance pending its disposition. Assuming the case is handled properly, you appear to be eligible for employment authorization and advance parole while it is pending.

My current Visa status is B1/B2, I was born in Thailand and moved India when I was 5 year old. Therefore, My parents got me an Indian passport. I want to know more about the EB3 AND E2 visas.
An EB-3 visa is an immigrant visa which requires sponsorship from a U.S. employer who has also obtained a labor certification on your behalf. An E-2 visa is a treaty investor visa which requires there to be a treaty between the United States and your country of citizenship. Unfortunately, there is no applicable treaty between the U.S. and India so Indian citizens are not eligible for E-2 visas. You do not mention whether you maintain dual citizenship with Thailand, but a treaty between the U.S. and Thailand does exist making Thai citizens eligible for E-2 status.
