Q. I am an F-1 overstay. Married to USC. I-130 approved. I-485 is pending. ICE came searching for me and I got NTA.
A: There are many ways you can qualify for a work permit. One way is if you are eligible for Cancellation of Removal as an application for defense from removal. If you have lived in the US for over 10 years (not more than 90 days absent during those 10 years), if you have "good moral character" and you have a qualifying relative (e.g. a US born child), you could qualify for Cancellation of Removal. If this is an available defense, then you can apply for a work permit for the duration of the removal proceedings. There are many other defenses to explore such as eligibility for asylum, and any benefit for which you qualify, that could allow you to file for a work permit.
Q. Get a non conditional visa 2 years after the marriage, the petition or the approval of the immigrant visa?
A: The 2 year conditional period begins upon approval of the green card/immigrant visa. You can apply to remove the conditions 90 days before the 2 year anniversary on form I-751.
Q. I am green card holder planning to complete affidavit of support to sponsor my spouse and two kids to US. Question is:
A: You can file now and not wait until next year but USCIS may send you a request for evidence because of the lower income from the currently filed tax return (despite having a current income higher than the poverty guideline threshold). The request may request a joint sponsor (i.e. another person to fill out and sign the affidavit of support in addition to you).
