Say I have a work visa and driver's license. Can I fly WITHIN the U.S. and not have any issues as far as being detained or denied a flight goes?
If you have a work visa you are not undocumented. If by work visa you mean employment authorization then you may want a clearer understanding of how you got it and what your status is. The risks depend on the airport, particularly in these uncertain times with more aggressive enforcement under the new administration. You may want to consult an attorney directly, because you may require advice specific to your situation and this forum is meant for general advice. Good luck!See question
I got married with an American in June last year. I got approved for conditional residence in January 2017 (we had been dating for years, he came to visit me to my home country twice, it is evidently a good-faith marriage), but since I came here I...
What's best is what's best for you. The good news is you have filing options and perhaps a spouse who is flawed but seems supportive of your decisions. Your situation is obviously very personal, and I agree with my colleagues that you need to consult someone directly, but as far as general advice, people often encounter problems when they try to fit their life into what they think the immigration process requires. Live your life with what's best for you in mind, then explain that to an attorney and ask them how your decisions will impact your immigration process, not the other way around.

Do you have to be a citizen to bring parents over or can you do it as a permanent resident? Also can I bring my cousin over?
You have to be a citizen over 21 for parents, and there is no category for cousins. Good luck!See question
Hello, I am filing to remove conditions from my green card and was wondering if affidavits are a must? we have good bit of supporting docs: joint bank statements, home mortgage, home insurance, utility bills, 401k beneficiaries,pictures. Please...
They are helpful but not strictly required. Officers will generally want to see that you have held yourselves out as a married couple, and affidavits from people who know you can help establish that. If the evidence you provide is insufficient, the officer may give you an opportunity to provide additional evidence, and if the petition is denied and you are placed in removal proceedings, you will have an opportunity to file again before an Immigration Judge who will receive additional evidence.

I'm currently living abroad but going to migrate in U.S. and I have accepted a job offer in the U.S. Does my income matters abroad since I will quit that job when I migrate to the U.S.?
It is difficult to tell from your question why you are completing Form I-864 if you are not in the U.S. and are an intending immigrant, and why you would want to put "zero income" in that form, since it is used by sponsors of intending immigrants to show that they (the sponsor) have sufficient income. You may wish to contact an immigration attorney to ensure that you are completing the appropriate forms. The only general advice I can provide based on your question is that you must complete all forms truthfully. That is, if you have income and are asked about income, you would usually need to state what that income is as of the filing of the form, even if you anticipate that it will change in the immediate future.

No, there is no citizenship "probation period," a breakdown in a valid marriage does not end citizenship or permanent resident status. Good luck!See question
I have a small ecommerce website that I want to advertise foreign countries soccer colors and slogans on t-shirts and other apparel like sweatshirts.
I think this is really more of an intellectual property question than an international law question. I've changed the category so that intellectual property attorneys will see it. Good luck!See question
We entered into good faith marriage in May 2012.I applied for my conditional green card in Dec 2012,had the interview few months later and got the green card in March 2013.In Dec 2014 we applied for I751 ,since than my application is still pending...
Separation or filing for divorce does not affect your pending I-751. If you are interviewed you need to be truthful about the status of the marriage, but you would not have to (or be able to) file an amended I-751 based on good faith marriage ending in divorce until you are actually divorced. On the plus side, if the I-751 is approved, you will get "credit" for the years since your conditional green card was issued and should be able to apply for naturalization (citizenship) shortly.

A friend of mine came to the US on a student visa that has now expired. While in the states, he got married to a US citizen, but he and his wife never got around to undergoing the necessary steps for him to become a legal citizen. His wife has now...
Divorce alone doesn't trigger deportation, but if he is in the US without a visa he is subject to removal (deportation) for that reason. This would be true even if he was married to a US citizen, unless they were pursuing an application for adjustment of status based on their marriage. As far as marrying his current girlfriend, as long as his divorce is final first, then his lack of immigration status should not be an obstacle - people without status get married in the US all the time - but it would depend on the marriage laws of the state where he intends to marry. If his current girlfriend is a US citizen they may be able to file applications after they are married for him to adjust status to that of permanent resident, but that would depend on several details about his case. This website is not intended for individual advice, so I would suggest your friend contact an attorney directly to go over the details and learn about his options. Good luck!See question
Has work with a company for 10 years and help the company grow and now he is required to full a 1-9 form
Unfortunately a pending I-130 alone does not provide employment authorization. When the priority nears it may be possible to file your I-485 and application for employment authorization a little bit early thanks to recent changes in the Visa Bulletin, but this varies over time. You may wish to meet with an immigration attorney to see if you have any other options. Good luck!See question
