Typical processing time for an I-751 with an interview waiver is approximately 9 to 12 months. For those cases selected for an interview there is typically another 4 to 6 months. Thus, it appears your case has been selected for an interview. USCIS will provide proof of lawful status while the petition continues to be pending. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney for more information and assistance.See question
My father submitted an I 130 for me.he is a US citizen but I was born abroad. I want to know if I can submit a work authorization form now.
As my colleagues have noted, simply having an I-130 pending does not entitle you to employment authorization. More facts are needed to determine what can be done to assist you. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review the facts of your case and advise you of the options available and how best to proceed.See question
I've been a permanent resident for 3 years, does my category iw6 resident card allow me to become a citizen in this period of time? Thanks for your time.
Unfortunately the answer to your question is no. As a widow/widower of a U.S. citizen you must be a resident for 5 years before you become eligible for naturalization (though you can apply 90 days in advance). The 3 years provision only applies to aliens who are living in marital union with their U.S. citizen spouse.See question
I filled them out myself just need someone to double check for me. pls and thank you
Some attorneys will do this, others (such as myself) will not. There is much more to a successful immigration case then just filling out forms. Forms can be reviewed to determine whether the blanks are filled in and the boxes are checked, but that does not mean that they are the proper forms for the client's specific situation or that the best course of action is being taken. That can only be determined after a client's case and fully be reviewed. If you think it's important enough to have what you prepared reviewed by an attorney, isn't it important enough to have your case handled by a an attorney with knowledge of the immigration laws and experience dealing with the USCIS and other agencies involved with your case?See question
the day before my interview I received a letter from IRS stating that I owed taxes from 2013. it was 7 pm and there was nothing I could do at that time other that setting up a payment plan. I told the immigration officer that I owe taxes and that ...
As you have unfortunately found out, there is much more to immigration then just completing forms.
While you don't state what type of benefit you applied for, it appears to be naturalization. Failure to pay taxes is generally considered to be evidence of lack of good moral character. However, just because you entered into a payment plan after your interview does not mean that you cannot show good moral character. Good moral character does not mean "moral excellence" and is not destroyed by a single lapse.
You should consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review the written denial with you and the facts surrounding your case, advise as to the options available, and recommend how best to proceed. Do so quickly as time is of the essence.See question

There are a lot of different issues in the facts that you present, e.g. maintaining lawful status, getting divorced so you can actually marry your fiance (his immigration status notwithstanding), just to name two of them. This forum is not he place to get the individualized advice you need.
Consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review the facts of your case and that of your fiance in detail so he or she can advise you of the options available and the best way to proceed.See question
I applied for asylym on 4/13/2013 and I was interviewed by an asylym officer on 12/14/2015. Until now I did get any dicision on my case. Can I file Hebeas corpus to speed up my case?
A writ of Habeas Corpus is not what you want in this case. You want to compel USCIS to act and that is done through a writ of Mandamus. However, you should be careful what you wish for. Depending on the facts of your case going to federal court may or may not be a good idea. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review your case and advise you about options which may be available.See question
