Hello, good evening. My brother (U.S born citizen) pass away 9 days ago. He has 2 daughters born abroad (6 and 10 years) and currently living in the Dominican Republic. Last year he applied for the CRBA and it was denied because he didn't have...
If he never petitioned his daughters, then they have no case pending.See question
My husband came here on a 5 year visa as a child which expired in 2010 and is now trying to get his green card through me. On the I-485 application what would his current USCIS status be?

Yes, you can apply for a TN as an RN at either the Mexican or the Canadian border. Make sure that all your documents are in order (license, VisaScreen, etc.)See question
Specifically the definition of the word "living". Do they not consider travelers on tourist visas as living there?
There are a great many variations of this in our immigration laws: residence, physical presence, unlawful physical presence, etc. You need to be more specific.See question

I have waited 150 days, i checked the instructions to file it but they need some documents along with the file and i don't know how to get them or what are they.
As an asylum applicant, you are allowed to work in the U.S. if either:
you were granted asylum (or received “recommended approval” for a grant of asylum), or
you had applied for asylum at least 150 days ago and still have not received an initial decision on your asylum application.
(For more information about eligibility to work based on an asylum application, see When Can Asylum Applicants Get a Work Permit?.)
Under the first scenario, if you are an approved asylee, you do not need to apply for an Employment Authorization Document (also called an EAD or work permit). It is enough for you to apply for a Social Security card, and present this to employers. Nevertheless, if you are approved by the Asylum Office, it may initiate the process of preparing an EAD for you. And an EAD is a handy form of photo identification, so pursuing one is a good idea. (If the Asylum Office doesn't start the process for you, see Granted Asylum Status in the U.S.: When You'll Get Your Asylum Documents for what to do next.)
Under the second work-permit eligibility category, you MUST file Form I-765 in order to apply for an EAD before you start working. Your EAD will authorize you to work in the United States for a specified period of time. You can file Form I-765 if 150 days have passed since your asylum application was received by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) (for affirmative applicants) or since your defensive application was "lodged" in Immigration Court (if applying while in removal proceedings).See question
I am an asylum seeker, my case is pending i want to file for EAD. These are the requirements that i don't know. What are they? 1-A copy of the USCIS acknowledgement mailer which was mailed to you; 2-Other evidence that your Form I-589 was filed ...
Sounds correct. Your asylum clock need to be running for 150 days before you are eligible to apply.
I am on a visiting visa, I volunteer without any compensation, can I ask the agency to petition for me so that I can legally seek employment elsewhere when I am not volunteering with them
They can sponsor you only if they are willing to pay you at the "prevailing wage". Please see https://www.avvo.com/legal-guides/ugc/green-cards-through-employmentSee question
Hello, I would like to know if my permanent residency will be jeopardized due to the fact that I will stay less than 6 months in USA after receiving the green card. I left the USA shortly after getting my green card and stayed out of the count...
The smart approach would be for you to return to the US and obtain a Re-Entry Permit. This will allow you to remain outside the US for up to 2 years.See question
