1. Yes, it can become an issue. Talk to an attorney in private regarding strategy ... we need more facts.
2. No, if you were my client I wouldn't let you leave the US ... especially if you are from India.
3. This is even more reason NOT to leave the US ... the F requires non-immigrant intent ... impossible to prove if a GC process has been started.
Have you talked about this with your employer's immigration attorney?
If not, why not?
If yes, please be kind enough to share with us what he/she said.See question

I suggest that C pursue a masters, and then a PhD ... which is about how long it will take before her mother's petition will have any value.
NO, she can not remain in the US to await the priority date becoming current ... unless she remains a full-time student.See question

If you are in the US, the 'filing date' has no value.
Trust the lawyer ... I agree that there is no 'porting' between two completely unrelated categories.
Without seeing the EB papers, we have to trust that your lawyer knows what he/she is doing ... so should you.See question

I am asking this because I have an appointment for the US oath of ceremony and want to know,does the US allow dual citizenship with Panamanian citizens.? I also would like to know if someone during the ceremony changes her mind and decides just...
The question isn't really one of US law, which does all dual citizenship.
The problem, as you see, is the government of Panama .. .which does NOT recognize dual.
Thus, you this is not an option.See question
Currently, I am in H1 visa which is expiring on May 2017. Due to personal reasons, I would like to convert my H1 to H4. So, in future, if I would like to convert the same back to H1, is it possible once the visa expires. Is it based on visa expira...
It will be based on the petition expiration date.
The best/fastest way to do this 'double' switch is to fly home each time ... don't try to file for a change w/in the US ... if you do, you'll regret it.See question
