If my friend applies I-601A waiver without inspection and

If my friend applies for a I-601A waiver for entry without inspection and unlawful presence, and then later applies for a I-601 waiver for misrepresentation, because at the time of originally entering the U.S. my friend was found to misrepresent himself by claiming to be a permanent resident, then do you think it's possible that they could approve the I-601A while he is inside the U.S., but later that they could deny his I-601 waiver for misrepresentation after he leaves the U.S.?

Thanks time. I'm thinking to take a job offer and have a

Hi, thanks for your time.I'm thinking to take a job offer and have a question on my H-1B visa transfer.My prior employer filed I-140 for me. I have a copy of I-140 Approval Notice. Based on the receipt number from the approval notice, I look up the case status from USCIS. The USCIS webpage confirms that "On January 9, 2014, we approved your Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker , Receipt Number xxx, and emailed you an approval notice." Does this mean my I-140 with my previous employer is still valid?I have already passed my 6th year H1B. My current H1B will expire in December 2017. My current employer has only requested a prevailing wage determination so far. I'm thinking to change job. Under this circumstance, can I still change job if my new employer is going to sponsor my H1B visa? By the way, I am getting married soon and my fiancé is a U.S. citizenship?

My Brother who is not a US citizen, got arrested while he

My Brother who is not a US citizen, got arrested while he was a student living in the US. He had to do Anger Management but left the country before completing it. He did however complete it and sent proof back. When I check with the local courthouse where he was charged, they said they have no record of the arrest at all and his record was clean. He tried to renew his Visa to come back as a Student but was denied and told he could not try again. My mother, who is a US citizen, would like to try file for citizenship for him but is unsure if this is a good idea considering what happened when he filed for a Visa. Do you think filing for citizenship for him will waste time or is there a chance he will be considered?
