My asylum case was referred to LA immigration court on November 17, 2014. When they gave me my referral notice and my NTA they said, that I will get my court date in the mail soon, but it's already 4 months that I am still waiting and haven'r rece...
I would suggest that you don't worry about it since you seem to be doing your best. Just file change of address form with the Immigration Service. Send change of address to the asylum office where you were interviewed as well.See question
Can only green card holders start a business?
EAD provides right to work. You an start your own business. It is not a problem. You just have to remember what effect it might have on your green card application. If you are beneficiary of a family based petition, then I don't see a problem at all. However, if your green card application is based on employment (I-140 filed by employer)(and labor certification), then you need to be careful because it affects the intent of employer to hire you when green card is approved. You should really consult a lawyer.See question

I have an Abstract Judgment in the amount of $l8,000 issued 12/7/2005 recorded in Calaveras County, CA where my ex husband resides. Calaveras County advised me that Abstract Judgments don't expire but was advised to the court where my divor...
Abstract a written summary of a judgment which states how much money the losing defendant owes to the person who won the lawsuit (judgment creditor), the rate of interest to be paid on the judgment amount, court costs, and any specific orders that the losing defendant (judgment debtor) must obey, which abstract is acknowledged and stamped so that it can be recorded and made official with the government. The purpose of an abstract of judgment is to create a public record and create a lien or claim if necessary on any real estate property owned or later acquired by the defendant located in the county in which the abstract of judgment is recorded. If the loser does not pay the judgment voluntarily then the winner can force a sheriff's sale of any property to collect.
A judgment is good for 10 years typically. You have to take action to collect judgment such as wage garnishment, bank levy etc. Work with someone who handles judgment collections.See question
the order that is appeal able? If after the hearing on the sanctions to remove them they remain can one appeal this decision not to remove them to an appeals court prior to trial?
Probably not. However, the question makes me wonder about the nature of sanctions and more importantly why they were issued. Sanctions are normally issued in grave situations. You must talk to a lawyer, show the paperwork and then decide.
The writ is simply a directive from this court to a lower tribunal to do something or stop doing something. Unlike appeals, which are heard as a matter of right, writ relief is deemed extraordinary, equitable and discretionary. Because of this, a ppellate courts generally grant writ relief only when the petitioner (1) has no other adequate remedy in the ordinary course of law and (2) will suffer irreparable injury if writ relief is not granted. If the order you intend to challenge is directly appealable, you are considered to have an adequate remedy by law unless you can show special circumstances.
Check Code of Civil Procedure section 904.1 to see what orders and judgments are directly appealable;
for rulings not covered by that section, you may also wish to look at the cases dealing with the
ruling in question to see if the issue was resolved by an appellate opinion or a writ opinion.
If I were you, I would not handle an appeal or writ myself. Hope you have an attorney advising you and that posting a question was merely a curiosity.
Each situation and possible outcome is very fact specific.See question

I have read some recommendations to quite my job and move on to a better job that pays good. However, when my employer processed my greencard they required me to sign a contract that says, "The candidate must re-pay all expenses associated with ...
2 different issues-
1. "Contract to re-pay all expenses associated with the I-140 and I-485 steps of the permanent residence process if they resign" . You need to contact a local (in your state) attorney to find out the validity of this contract. Contract law is state specific.
2. Being paid less than PW. You need to first look at wage related representations in your labor certification or even in I-140. If you are being paid what was represented in I-140 then you possibly don't have a claim. However, if during the processing of I-140 or even during I-485 stage, if you worked on H1b visa (instead of EAD) then the wage you were paid would be determined by H1b visa petition. Needless to say, if you are being paid less than promised under employment contract or visa petition, you can sue the employer in State Labor Court.
You need to contact a lawyer in person to get proper advise. Such advise has to be based on review of the immigration documents and contracts.See question
