I am a US Citizen. I petition for parents and it was approved recently.
Once the Department of State receives the approved petitions, the National Visa Center (NVC) should contact you and/or your parents, provide you with NVC case numbers, and send you fee bills. Your parents will then need to complete online applications for immigrant visas and will need to submit documents to NVC. Once everything is in order, your parents will be scheduled for interviews at the US Consulate in their country. Best wishes.See question

If your spouse's only potential ground of inadmissibility would be the 10-year bar for his unlawful presence in the US, then it appears that your spouse would be eligible to apply for the I-601A provisional waiver. The term "extreme hardship" is a legal term of art, which means that the definition of the term does not necessarily mean what one would ordinarily think that "extreme hardship" must mean. You are correct in your need to find an attorney who has a lot of experience in preparing and submitting applications for waivers involving "extreme hardship." You may search for suitable attorneys in many ways, including on Avvo, and at http://www.ailalawyer.com/ . Best wishes to you.See question
If derivative beneficiaries like spouse and kids under 21 years of age were not listed on the original I-130 petition, F4 category, can they still get the visa when PD becomes current?
When the original I-130 was filed, was the principal beneficiary married, and did the principal beneficiary have the children at that time? If the spouse and children came after the I-130 was filed, then yes, the spouse and children under 21 may be added as beneficiaries. If, on the other hand, the spouse relationship and/or children were in existence at the time the I-130 was filed, then the principal beneficiary will have to do some explaining about why they were not listed on the I-130.See question

Your situation is very serious. You really must consult directly with an immigration attorney experienced in the immigration (and deportation) consequences of criminal convictions, to determine what consequences you might have by pleas to certain specific statutes. I can't stress enough how important it is for you to obtain sound advice from an attorney who will be looking at the specific details of your case. Best wishes.See question
I have asked multiple times for updates or inquires on our i130 case because our case has been taking over a year to be approved. First, it was because of security checks and then we got out of them in May. I was told that I would receive a decisi...
You state that you want to be with your husband again. Are you living with your husband at this time? Usually in an interview regarding an I-130 petition based on marriage, USCIS expects to see both you and your husband at the interview. Also, USCIS expects that you and your husband are living together, unless you have a strong reason why you are not living together. I suggest that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney before the interview, to go over the case and to prepare you and your husband for the interview. Best wishes.See question

If the error on your card is your mistake, then you will need to pay the fee for a replacement green card. If the error was USCIS's mistake, then you will not need to pay. Usually replacement green cards take approximately 6 months to process. Best wishes.See question
