I am a Master's student and will be completing my courses by Feb 2016. I filed for OPT on 11/21/2016 but I am yet to receive my case number to track the processing. USCIS recently extended TPS for my country for 18 months for which I will have to ...
I don't see why you couldn't. Each application will be adjudicated on its own merits.See question
My child has been in administrative processing and I believe it's because she has a mental disorder
Yes, i'm afraid so.. Having a mental disorder condition could be used as a ground of inadmissibility, as well as the "public charge" ground of inadmissibility should be a concern to you. Contact a lawyer directly.See question

There are sometimes some "flukes" in the system. It's not perfect. You yourself can (and should) inquire about the status of your case with the asylum office.
I submitted my application for citizenship in January and was scheduled for the Biomatric screening and fingerprints in February. I heard from several people that it takes about 5 - 6 months to be invited for the interview. It has been more than 9...
I'll assume you say you applied for citizenship under the "3 year rule" for spouses of USCs.
Nine months is a long time, even for NJ. Your case seems to be outside the normal processing times.
Don't trust what you "heard" - each individual case is different. Also don't trust the USCIS case status site - never updated to comport with real events and often provides an overly optimistic time frame.
I strongly recommend that you both call the USCIS nationwide toll free number, as well as schedule an INFOPASS appointment to inquire about the status of your application with the local district office where you expect to be interviewed.See question
My husband recieved the green card and will now be joining me in NY from Pakistan. After a month we will move to Texas because he has found employment there. He will apply for citizenship after three years. My question is does he have to reside in...
Husband can reside in any locality in the US he desires, but will need to report any address change to USCIS by filing a Form AR-11 within no later than 10 days of such move.See question
I am in India
I don't see why not, if you in fact qualify for that I-407 application and can give a US address.See question
I am planning to move to US on L1 visa and my wife will be on L2 VISA. My wife is currently employed in Belgium, as per US law is it possible for her to continue working in Belgium and travel to US on L2 visa during her holidays? In addition if my...
Yes. As the spouse of an L-1 ("A" or "B") - makes no difference, your wife is entitled to apply for an L-2 visa. Once on an L-2 visa, your wife could "come and go" as she pleases, and even continue to be employed in Belgium and just visit you a few times a year - will make no difference.
Once your US employer decides to file an EB-1(c) petition for your "green card", if your wife is not present in the USA at the time, does not file the Form I-485 package of documents that will also include an "advance parole travel document" - she will then need to ultimately apply for her immigrant visa with the US consulate general in Brussels, as opposed to "adjusting status" (to green card) in the USA. When it gets that far, needs to be properly analyzed and decided upon with the employer's immigration lawyer or an independent one.See question
on an L2 visa through my step dad, my mother passed away 6 months ago, my step dad never adopted me so i dont get to be under his visa anymore. is there anyway that i can stay in the US?
You definitely need to schedule a private consultation with an experienced lawyer to analyze the options you might have and the feasibility of each.See question

Holal que tal?
Given that Immigration laws are federal and also the fact that you will not be needing to physically "appear" at any USCIS office for what you are planning to do, many of us will be interested in working with you either via phone or Skype in regards to your application for a "Reentry Permit", as well as N-400 Application For Naturalization.
Does your current US employer which sent you to overseas assignments have either a subsidiary, branch, affiliate or joint-venture or even a branch in the country where you were dispatched on assignment? Did you in fact perform work for that US-owned entity?

Check your online banking and see if the two checks for the I-130 and I-485 were cashed. Will have a case number on the back of your cashed check, a combination of letters and numbers - that one will be your case number, which you could inquire about in calling the USCIS nationwide toll free number, if need be (not that it will help much in the first 30 or even 60 days.)
You need to remain patient. Can take up to 3 weeks to see the USCIS case filing acknowledgement receipts appear in your mailbox, and sometimes slightly longer.See question
