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.

Can a 79 year old person (on Green-card) qualify for Medi-Cal/Cal-Fresh even if they have lived in US for 3 years? Thanks.
I agree with my colleague as to the immigration provisions. However, he will need to investigate whether he qualifies under California law.See question

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
Came on B2 Visa and working status change. Six month entry has been granted to all family.
A B-2 visa is for a visit, not full time school attendance. However, if a family member has an E-2 visa, the children will have derivative E status and may attend school full time.See question
Hello, I am a permanent resident and I want to marry my Italian girlfriend and bring her in USA with me. The plan would be the following: -She gets a B2 VISA -We marry in USA and apply for the I-130 -During the waiting she stays for the maximu...
Yes, your girlfriend can come with a B-2 visa, marry you and then return to Italy. However, having married you and being the beneficiary of a pending I-130 demonstrates immigrant intent. As such, it is unlikely that she will qualify for an F-1 visa, which requires noniimmigrant intent. It would be better to apply for the F-1 prior to your marriage. Consult with an immigration lawyer to assure that your steps will be within the purview of immigration law.See question
The USCIS in California is 1 year behind. Is it possible to transfer my case to Vermont office which has 4 months processing time? If so, how does that work, thanks
Occasionally, the USCIS transfers cases to other locations in an effort to balance the work load and reduce processing times of a backlogged service center. However, you and the applicant may not do so. Jurisdiction lies with your area of residence.See question

I noticed that the USCIS office in California is processing I612 cases submitted by Sept 25th 2015. In your experience is that true? which means no single new case submitted after sept 2015 to this office has been processed during this entire year...
Yes it is possible due to high volume of cases that are being filed and the lack of adequate adjudicators.See question
