I have an immigration related question in regards to my

Hi,JA: Hello. How can we help?Customer: I have an immigration related question in regards ***** ***** wife's green card applicationJA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: I am in NYJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Hi,I am a PR in the US for a little more than 3 years now and i have just filed for my wife's Green Card (Both of us are Indian citizens). As per the current visa availability, her priority date is in 1 year 10 months. She already has a 10 year multiple entry B1/B2 visa from last year and she has visited the country already in June 2016 for an educational conference, but at that time i had not applied for her Green Card. Our marriage was in India, in September 2016. She is currently doing her Doctorate studies (PhD) in Singapore.Will she be able to come to the US on her B1/B2 visa while her Green Card is under process? We do not intend for her to overstay her visa. She still has about 1.5 years left in her program in Singapore. If she might be allowed to visit the US, is she eligible to come for visiting me, or is it only for conferences or such (which was mentioned in her B1/B2 visa application request) that she would be allowed to enter?Also, is it okay for her to do job searching online in the US while her Green card is under process?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have seen that the fees for the lawyerr varies by urgency and etail. What is the repsonse time in general for different priorities?

My wife (from China, going through the green card process)

My wife (from China, going through the green card process) and I have our first interview with the customs officer on February 9th of this year. We were married last year and we are trying to get her change of status to Permanent resident. My income alone is not enough to meet the poverty level however my wife is legally working with an EAD card here in the united states, and with her income we both meet and exceed the poverty level. It states however that she has to prove she can continue to make money from the "same source" for our mutual income to count. She was offered a job a week ago that would offer double what she is paid now annually. Is she allowed to take a new job so close to our interview? Does she need to show proof of the income from the new job opportunity or does she have to stay at her current job for legal reasons and to prove we both meet the poverty level?
