I-94 is still valid for another 2 years. Case is complete (convicted of reckless driving not DUI) and currently on probation.
No, not advisable at all if the "reason" they will give in the visa application is to come and live with you in the USA.See question

Your resident father will only be able to file an I-130 petition on your behalf if you are still single. Otherwise not, until he becomes a US citizen and the process will take longer. Also, marrying another DACA recipient will not offer any advantages to either one of you.See question

My status expires after 6 months. Then I am going back home. When can I return to the USA again?
My rule of thumb is to wait for at least 6 months and one day before attempting to return to the USA again. CBP at the airport looks at the total time spent in the USA within the last 12 months, and if concludes that you in fact spent more time in the USA than in your own country..."no good"..See question
I filed an I-130 and I-485 combined filing for my mother who is here on a visitor visa. The USCIS is requesting an I-290B, because the doctor didn't complete the Form I-693 accurately TWICE. The decision letter from USCIS that references the I-290...
Since mom is the I-485 AOS applicant who applied for the I-485, it is her name that should appear on the I-290B Form as the one applying/requesting the MTR.See question
I have Approved L1A Visa till April 2018(Employer A) and H1B case was approved on Sep 30th 2016 with employer B. I would like to take my H1b visa transfer to Employer A. Could you please suggest me the next immediate steps and let me know if you...
1. "- How long can i continue to work with employer A with L1A visa?" For the duration of your I-94 for that L-1A employer. To escape the effect of USCIS' "Last Action Rule" that this H-1B approval brings, however, make sure to briefly exit the US and make an entry on your (hopefully) still valid L-1A visa "stamp" in your passport, and specify coming back to work for "A" in L-1A capacity.
2. "Can I take transfer my H1B Visa from Employer B to Employer A?" That's where it could get complicated. After having "activated" your newly acquired H-1B status by actually "working" for "B" on H-1B payroll, you can ask "A" to file its own H-1B petition on your behalf. You will be able to "jump ship" again and "transfer" back to "A" as soon as its H-1B petition is considered "filed" with USCIS, namely a receipt issued and received for the I-129/H.
3. "I do not what to move out from current employer and can you suggest me next steps?" Unfortunately cannot have your Somosa and eat it too.. See my answer 1 above. Answer 2 will not work/apply in such case.See question
