We adopted our daughter in 1982 from Korea and she had an IR-4 visa, we don't know what happened to the naturalization papers, now they are saying she has to apply for naturalization on her own. Both parents are American citizens and we can't find her temp green card given to her but she did have permanent residence status on her pass port. And we have the Judgement and Decree for the adoption and Notice of approval for her visa petition but we need to find out her visa number and also find out if she is automatically qualified as a naturalized citizen when she was adopted?

In July 2015 we sent my petition for alien worker (i-140).

Hi, my name is***** 2015 we sent my petition for alien worker (i-140). After we applied for i-485 for my family members, (receipt has August 18 date) for my husband and son (application to register permanent resident or adjust status). Six months later we received a letter with demand for additional verification documents. In one month we sent additional paperwork with supporting documents and received denial with two offers - either to appeal this case or to reopen case. We sent appeal motion (i-290b) and received the receipt of August 11, 2016. August 17, 2016 we received denial for i-485. Now we can't stay in the country but our case is still in process in court. The question is how we can extend our i-485 form to stay legally in the country? I can send files if necessary. Thank you

A resident alien wishes to file an n-400 application for

A resident alien wishes to file an n-400 application for U.S. citizenship. The application asks for the "issue date" of the appliant's green card. However the green card in question doesn't show an "issue date" but rather an "admission/adjustment date". Is that the same thing or, if not, how can the applicant find out the "issue date"?Thank you.
