Effect of Divorce on Employment-Based Immigration

I have been in US for the last 8 years and got GC employment based 3 years ago. I have 15 and 21 year old sons. My wife and I have differences on who manages my finances. I am thinking about applying for divorce. Just wondering whether divorce would have any impact on obtaining citizenship (either for me or my wife and children).

Child Born To A Lawful Permanent Resident Mother During Her Temporary Absence From The U.S

A child is born to a lawful permanent resident mother during her temporary absence from the U.S. What must the parent do to be able to bring their child back to the United States and obtain LPR status for him/her?

Children born during the temporary visit abroad of a lawful permanent resident (LPR) mother are classified as NA3.

     · A child who meets the requirements of the NA3 classification is exempt both the passport and immigrant visa requirement when arriving in the U.S. for the first time.

     · The child must apply for admission to the United States within two years of birth.

Comment: 

Hi, I want to leave a comment on my positive experience with LORK every time I reach out to the firm. I was a client of LORK when my green card was applied through my employer and they took utmost care of the case. Especially, I was one of the people that applied during July 2007 visa bulletin fiasco and the firm was very good at answering and responding to all of my repeated questions patiently. Since then, I have always reached out whenever I had a question on immigration matters and the staff always, always respond back to me promptly. Even though I was a client several years back, they still take care as if I am their current client. Greatly appreciate everyone at the firm and especially Mr Khanna for his due diligence, prompt responses and timely calls and great advice. Would love to do business with LORK again. thanks for all that you do to help our fellow Indians.

Effect of Divorce on an Employment-Based Case and Cross-Chargeability

I got married in May last year and my wife was born in Malaysia . I was on H-1B with I-140 approved then and learnt about cross chargeability and filed for green card in June, we both got our green card in October. Things are not going well with marriage and my wife moved to NY and she is thinking of getting divorce. If divorce does happen does this affect mine or her green card?

USCIS to Implement Filipino World War II Veterans Parole Program

Beginning June 8, 2016, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will allow certain Filipino World War II veteran family members who are beneficiaries of approved family-based immigrant visa petitions an opportunity to receive a discretionary grant of parole on a case-by-case basis, so that they may come to the United States as they wait for their immigrant visa to become available.    

Agency: 

Getting married when AOS I-485 is pending (following to join and other options)

My current status is AOS (Advance Parole) based on an employment-based EB3 green card filing with a PD of April 2007. I am an Indian citizen. My H-1B expired in 2007 and since then I have been working in the US on my EAD. My parents have found a prospective bride in India, so I am looking to get married soon and have her accompany me to the US after marriage. She does not have a US Visa. I have not found any information from any venue of getting married to an Indian girl from India in my current immigration status, except for hearing about Form I-824. Could you speak towards or confirm if indeed this is the process/procedure and its success rate or any caveat : filing Form I-824 to have my future wife added as a dependent to my pending AOS application, while she is still in India? And then subsequently filing my next I- 765 application and adding her as a dependent/spouse on the application. Once the EAD cards arrive then traveling to India and she could travel back to the US on her new EAD card?
