My wife came on a k1 visa and we married May 15th, 2 weeks

Hi, my wife came on a k1 visa and we married May 15th, 2 weeks after her arrival. We got the marriage license and Social security number in my last name because she changed it. We tried at the DMV to get a state ID but they denied it because her passport had her maiden name and not my last name. We've already filed for AOS and her EAD won't arrive for another few months. How can we get an ID, from Pennsylvania? ?

We completed biometric process three months back and they called us for interview in July 2016. We didn't apply citizenship for my son who is under 18 years.(1) Do we have to my son on interview date? I heard that once we become USA citizen, we need to send my son's passport to US passport sevice and they will issue US passport to my son because he is under 18 years.Second question is for my parents who is not currently US citizens.(2) My parents traveled to US with B1- visa and they are currently with me for another 3 months. I have also heard the if I my parents joined me on citizenship date, the office will also issue citizenship to my parents. We dont have to process any new request for changing their status from B1 to permanent residence.Please guide me on my above two issues.

If someone knows their card will not be renewed given the

If someone knows their green card will not be renewed given the amount of time they have spent out of our country, should they file the I-90 anyhow to have it denied, or should they try to do a I-130 petition for immediate relative? The concern is the I-90 will be denied and then the relative is out of status, but that the I-130/ I-465 may not be accepted anyhow because she still has an A number
