My brother-in-law migrated to USA on his wife's petition in AUG 2016. He has the conditional green card which expires in AUG 2018. Now they are deciding to have a divorce. The questions are 1) Does it matter who files for the Divorce? 2) How d...
Thanks for posting these common questions. Here is some feedback:
1.) In most cases, it doesn't matter who first files the divorce;
2.) A case involving a Removal of Conditions with a Waiver for a Bona Fide Marriage can sometimes be challenging.
3). Once the waiver is filed, USCIS will send an extension of the Conditional Residency while the application is pending.
Best of luck.

You will need to disclose this offense and be ready to provide outcome of the case. Generally, Domestic Violence offenses are treated as serious offenses, you appear to be eligible for a Petty Offense Exception to allow you to continue to seek admission. I would advise you to consult with an expert immigration lawyer.

DACA may be your best bet. If you didn't enter the US with the inspection, consider applying for Advance Parole under the DACA program.
I am a foreigner working with no papers. Me & my boyfriend plan to get married soon.
The type of visa that you used to enter the US will also be a relevant issue. There are some visas that do not allow you to adjust status.

You may or may not be CSPA protected. An experienced immigration lawyer will need to review the I-130 approval notice to assess eligibility and deduct processing times from your age. If you happen to be protected, there is an additional requirement to file for adjustment within one year of the PD becoming current.
I am an Indian national based in Dubai. I am exploring setting up the US operations for our business based in Dubai. I will move to the US to oversee the setup and buildout of the team etc. Based on my research so far, I believe the L1A is the bes...
You do have to wait to accumulate one year of business operations before applying for the greencard. See 8 CFR 204.5(j)((3)(D). Once you apply for the greencard, you are probably looking at about one year to obtain the greencard.See question
I just became a US citizen and I want to file for my parents.
Obtaining residency for your parents should be fairly direct. If they ever intend to stay outside the US for more than one year at a time, they can prefile a Reentry Permit so they can be allowed back into the US.
My husband has just DEPed into the Navy and his shipout date is April 2015. We are starting the Green Card application and I was wondering does it make a difference in processing time for us to submit now or wait until he is active Military?
The only issue I see her is the timing of your marriage interview. If your husband will not be available due his military commitments, you may be able to obtain an excuse for his presence if you provide evidence of his military active duty. However, best situation is for your husband to be available for the interview.
Best of luck.

In this case you can rely on the USCIS bulletin. However, before you file for the adjustment, please ensure that you meet all other requirements for adjustment eligibility.

By taking advantage of the "Date for Filing Visa Application" you would be able to obtain your work permit while you wait for the "Final Action Dates" bulletin to become current to receive your green card.
