I didn't know I had to renew it since it doesn't have a expiration day on it
Your green card without an expiration day is valid. They used to issue them like that. However, USCIS only issues green card with a 10-year expiration date. When you travel overseas and return to the US, the port-of-entry officers will "strongly" encourage you to get a "new card".See question
Currently I am on H4 visa studying my Masters in a university. I am planning to convert my status to F1. My H4 visa was issued in January 2013 and expired in 2015 September .Since then I am living in USA with my husband's approved h1b petition and...
Assuming that you can account for your valid status and your husband's valid status, you are permitted to submit a "change of status" from H4 to F1. We would also need to know if your husband has started any "green card" process, which may or may not have any effect on your application. Good luck.See question

Hi! I have TD visa and the scrapbook is my hobby! Can I make some party stuffs or invitations for sell? Thank you!!!
Unfortunately, TD does not allow work authorization, even for yourself. You would technically be in violation of your status if you start a small business as described.See question
I have a valid TN Visa and a valid I-94 that expires till Dec 2017. I want to travel to Mexico for a couple days and come back to the US. Should I expect to have any issues coming back in to the US due to the changes in the trump administration?
If you have been maintaining status and are traveling on valid TN status and Canadian passport, you should be able to return to the US after your trip to Mexico. Be sure you have your proper documents with you for inspections.See question
I am interetsed in filing I-130 for my wife (got married recently), however 06 years back my wife sister applied for her immigration family sponsorship which was approved and curently waiting for the visa number. My question is since I am planning...
You can file an I-130 for her. I am not sure if you are a US citizen or permanent resident from your message. It makes a difference on how long this will take, but either way, you may file a separate I-130 for your wife, without any concern or conflict with the previously filed I-130 by her sister. I don't have the forms with me, but at one point, she may need to disclose that. It's not a big deal, however, Good luck. JaredSee question
I am a US CITIZEN (birthright) born to two US born parents. My passport was issued in 2015 in my maiden name but has not yet been updated to reflect my married name (changed with SSA - DMV, ETC). Can I still use my passport to cross the US/MX border?
Agreed with answers provided. Bring your marriage certificate too.See question
I am a naturalized US citizen I want to apply for Global Entry so I can travel freely, I understand that if you have an arrest record not a felony CBP will deny for application, how do I go about getting approved with this arrest record, I already...
If you have just an arrest, and if the results were "not too bad", they may be able to issue it to you. Please provided copies of "certified copy" of your arrest record and disposition (i.e. final results). You will be having your interview at Skyharbour Airport, and you may be able to present court certified of your records then. However, it is possible that you will be denied.
I have Global Entry and I think you should know what it does and what it does not. It does not exempt your passport requirements. Without Global Entry, you still can travel internationally (as you already know). However, having Global Entry, you have special lines and will go through the process a lot quicker, especially in big airports like LAX. Good luck.
In April 2015 my visa was picked but went in RFE and as it was getting delayed in getting all the information my employer had withdrawn my case. Is it possible for now to reopen the case or do I need to start again as a fresh case in April this year?
I am afraid that you will need to start a "fresh" case this year and try to obtain a new H1B quota.See question
My Mother has Visitor Visa for USA valid for 10 years and she is with us now in USA. At POE , she got I-94 valid for one year(not 6 months). 1. Since I-94 is given at POE for 1 year, can she opt to stay for 7 months during her current visit ?
It is highly unusual that her I-94 will be valid for 6 months on B2 status. It could be a glitch in the system or mistake on the part of the officer. As such, I would be cautious in taking advantage of that. But if we assume that she has indeed been admitted for 12 months, and if she stays 7 months, she is not in violation of her immigration status technically. However, it may make it harder for her next time she returns to the US, because the immigration officer may question why she stayed such a "long" time last time. The general rule of thumbs is not to stay in the US on B status for longer than 6 months consecutively or 6 months in the aggregate in any calendar year. One may also become a "tax resident" in the US for staying over 6 months in a given year. I am not a tax lawyer so my understanding of it is limited and would recommend that she looks into it. Good luck.See question
