My mother's 10 year green card renewal denied based on facts that she couldn't provide enough evidence for residency, My father is a US citizen, what further steps can he take to get her status back? Any help would be very much appreciated!!
So, your mother was a green card holder for ten years or more, and was simply applying to renew her card?
Or, was your mother a conditional permanent resident for two years, and she was applying to remove the conditions on her residency and be awarded a ten year card?See question
My brother was charged with class A misdemeanor. He had his first DWI back in 2014 and his second one this year in 2017. On both times he was stopped for swerving and when they took a breathalyzer he had 0.21 BAC both times (which I find coinciden...
Overstaying the tourist visa is what makes your brother deportable. The DUIs will simply increase the odds that he will come to the attention of ICE, who will initiate removal proceedings against him.
In Immigration Court, your brother will have a right to challenge the government's charge of deportability. However, if he did, in fact, overstay his period of authorized stay, then it sounds like he will not have any basis to contest the charge.
Your brother will also have the right to apply for any relief from removal once he is found removable as charged. However, given his short period of time in the U.S., his lack of immediate relatives (spouse, parent, child) who are US citizens or green card holders, and his two DUIs, his relief options would be quite limited.
Is your brother afraid of being persecuted or tortured in his home country? Was he ever the victim of a crime committed against him in the U.S.? The answers to those questions might reveal the presence, or absence, of some relief options.See question

It sounds like there is a good argument that you were out of status when your dad was fired, making you eligible for DACA. However, you mentioned that you applied before and received a denial. On what basis did USCIS deny DACA the first time? Did the agency claim that you were in lawful status in 2012? If so, had you provided evidence of your father's termination? Sounds like you have already talked to a lawyer about this. What did she say?See question
Parolled into the USA with "advance parole" last December. The problem is my husband is in jail for battery and most likely be in jail for 6 months. Can He still petition me even though he is in Jail if I get a lawyer?
Yes, he can petition for you even if he's in jail. Alternatively, if the battery was against you, or if the relationship is otherwise abusive, you might be able to petition yourself under the Violence Against Women Act.
However, before starting either process, you'll want to make sure that nothing in your own criminal, immigration, employment, medical, financial, or family history will prevent you from becoming a resident.See question

So, this person has a tourist visa, which may be good for several years. However, each time she comes to the U.S. she will be given a certain period of time that she is allowed to stay, typically not longer than six months. So, it sounds like this person may have overstayed her period of authorized stay for quite a long period of time, unless she had applied for, and received, multiple extensions of her authorized period of stay.
If, on the other hand, she was allowed to stay for only six months, but ended up staying for three years, then she will be facing a ten year bar to her reentry, and her tourist visa will likely be revoked. She should definitely consult with an immigration attorney before starting her return trip to the U.S.
Priority date: 13 March 2011 Category F1 I'm confused as to which chart should I follow. 1) Final Action Dates For Family Sponsored Preference Class (Current Date 8 December2010) OR 2) Dates For Filing Famil...
I respectfully disagree with my colleagues. Each month, USCIS will determine whether adjustment applicants can use the 'DATES FOR FILING' chart, or whether they will be limited to the 'FINAL ACTION DATES' chart.
For March and April, for example, USCIS allowed adjustment applicants in the family preference categories to use the 'DATES FOR FILING' chart.
You are looking at the May Visa Bulletin. USCIS has not yet announced its decision on use of the 'DATES FOR FILING' chart for May adjustment applicants. However, that announcement should be coming soon. In general, USCIS tries to issue its decision within one week of the publication of the monthly Visa Bulletin.
When USCIS reaches a decision about the May charts, it will be posted here:

You were brought to the U.S. 32 years ago by your parents, when you were just an infant, correct? How did your parents get you into the U.S.? Did they have visas, for example, and go through an immigration inspection station at a port-of-entry? Or did they enter without being inspected?
If they entered without inspection (meaning you also entered without inspection), that fact will likely prevent you from applying to adjust from inside the U.S. However, you'd want to check and make sure that there aren't any exceptions that might apply to your situation.
Do you know if anybody ever filed any immigration paperwork for your parents? Like one of their brothers or sisters, if they were U.S. citizens, or an employer? I'm not asking if their paperwork was approved, understand--I'm just asking if anyone ever started the immigration process for your parents in the past.
Has your spouse ever served in the military or reserves?
It sounds like you might qualify for DACA? Did you ever apply for that? If you did, is your card still valid? If so, have you thought about applying for advance parole?
