My son is in divorce proceedings, and there is one minor

My son is in divorce proceedings, and there is one minor child. My son and I have learned thru Facebook that his wife, who is not a citizen of the US, has gone to Africa to get married. She left their son in the care of a tenant in the house. My son's attorney advised he make a report w/child protection which he did. They are scheduled for mediation in August. My questions are: (1)how is it possible for a non-US citizen to get married in another country and return to the US remarried and then go to mediation; (2)should my son contact the judge's law clerk to advise; (3)what state/federal agency(s), if any, should be made aware of the circumstances..

I have two questions and I hope you can help me with it. 1.

Hello, I have two questions and I hope you can help me with it.1. I am employed in L1B status valid for 2 more years, married to a US citizen, and I filed concurrently for adjustment of status (I-130, I-485, I-765) two months ago. If I am laid off while in L1B status and the adjustment of status is pending, what steps are required on my side in order to maintain legal status in US?2. Would I be entitled to unemployment benefits, while the adjustment of status is pending, if I am terminated from a L1B employment position? (I.e. With or without EAD available at the moment when I am laid off)Thank you for your advice

Can I apply for my internationally adopted children's citizenship using form N-600 if their permanent resident card have expired? Both my husband and I are US citizens. We were both present in China when the adoption took place in November of 2003, and have re-adopted in our home state of Washington. We are worried that the applications could be denied because of the PR card expiration. Thanks for your help.

Below is a question and his answer on his application for

Below is a question and his answer on his application for his interview with the US Embassy in India.Have you ever been unlawfully present, overstayed the amount of time granted by an immigration official or otherwise violated the terms of a U.S. visa?(YES/NO): YesIn January 2016, I switched employers. I was hired by a third-party agency, Prozetto Inc. (based in Texas), to work at Sony Pictures in Culver City, California. Prozetto Inc. filed my H1B transfer papers. In April 2016, I found out, via the USCIF website, that my H1B petition was denied. I quickly informed Prozetto Inc. and was immediately taken off payroll. I continued to stay in the USA, because I was told by Prozetto Inc. to wait until they receive the actual denial notice and the reason for the denial. I attempted on several occasions after to followed up with Prozetto Inc. in regards ***** ***** denial with little success. It was then that I reached out to the second-party agency, Tentek Inc. Tentek agreed to refile my H1B papers and H1B visa was granted.Is this an ok answer? Or is it too specific?
