Have a pending i130 once its approved is it quicker to do my paper work in America or over sea's with the us consulate/embassy
It depends on whether your are eligible to adjust status, which depends on the basis of your immigration. If the I-130 is filed by your US citizen wife, you are eligible and it would be wise to adjust status in the US. However, if it is your brother or parent filing for you, you will be subject to a quota and would likely be unable to stay in status in the US while waiting for your quota to become available. Consultwith an immigration lawyer to evaluate your status and length of wait for eligibility.See question
Hi, my brother is a US citizen. Can I wait in the US until I get my green card(I did not apply yet). I do not need to work there as I am working with an international company and I work from home. My parents are green card holder and live there. S...
Your first step is to consult an immigration lawyer. Here is just one reason why. Yes, your brother may file for you but the process will take many years as that quota is backlogged. However, you may not overstay your entry visa, which is likely to be a B-2, visitor status. If you overstay your status for 1 year or longer, you will need to leave in order to obtain your green card, and when you leave, you will incur a 10 year period of inadmissibility. You need to discuss your options with an experienced immigration lawyer,See question

All US passports indicate the place of birth. It is not possible to obtain any immigration document that will falsly state your place of birth. This is true even after you are naturalized and become a US citizen. The best thing you can do is become a US citizen and bring your family (parents and siblings) to the US.See question

You have not stated whether you are in lawful status. If your status has expired, you are not eligible to adjust status in the U.S. Moreover, if you have been present in the US unlawfully for a year or longer, you will need a waiver of inadmissibility because when you exit the US you will be inadmissible for 10 years. You will need to show extreme hardship to qualify for a waiver. This is a complex situation; do not try to ta take care of it without the assistance of an immigration lawyer.See question
I'm trying filling a I-130 to get my parents permanent resident.
What specifically is the mistake in your mother's name? Is it a different name or a spelling error? A look at the document would be helpful. You could ask the consulate of her country of citizenship and/or consult an immigration lawyer.See question
Hi there I want to invest half million in the USA to get green card. I notice that I-829 processing time is 22 months - does this mean that I need to keep 10 people employed through out these 22 months, until USCIS decides on my case? Thanks.
Yes, you will need to keep the US workers not only until 22 months, but until a favorable decision is made. Additionally, dismissing the employees upon becoming a resident may be interpreted as fraud on your part.
Consult with an immigration attorney to get a full understanding of the law.

You should always answer immigration questions completely and accurately, A material omission or misrepresentation will be found to visa fraud, disqualifying from visa benefits. That being said, until you are divorced, you are married. However, if there is an option on the form of "separated", you may rely on that.See question
