My husband and I have been married years. I am a US-born

My husband and I have been married for 18 years. I am a US-born citizen and he is a New Zealand citizen. He has been a permanent resident of the US since August 2000. He owes quite a bit of child support in New Zealand, after his former wife went to court, with no notice, and had it raised to the highest level possible. He had already given her the house, paid the mortgage, paid for many other things, and paid child support since 1996. If he applies for citizenship will he be turned down?

I am currently unemployed and about to start a new business.

I am currently unemployed and about to start a new business. I will set up a consulting company in Indiana for this. The first project will be a 2 year duration overseas assignment that will have me and my wife out of the country for extended periods of time with a few trips back to the US each year to check on things.I'd like to rent my home while I am traveling. I will work with a Property Manager and CPA on the realestate/financial/tax implications of doing this but, I am very unclear about LEGAL aspects of this. My biggest question is one of mailing address and legal residence status in Indiana. What can I do about a mailing address to preserve residency and receive all of my official business and personal mail? Are there other legal ramifications of doing this?

My friend wants to apply , and she has been a permanent

My friend wants to apply for naturalization, and she has been a permanent resident for over 40 years.In approximately the year 1976, she tried to help her SISTER enter the U.S. illegally, and was caught by CBP and a record of that action was made at the time.Later in approximately the year 2000, she applied for Naturalization and hadn't mentioned on the naturalization application that she tried to help her sister enter the U.S. previously in 1976. Then this fact came out in the interview, because it was on their records. So the USCIS denied her naturalization application at the interview, because she hadn't been truthful on the application, and they said she could reapply after waiting 5 years. Now she wants to reapply at this time, and thus provide the 1976 alien smuggling information on the applicationHowever, should she apply? Is the alien smuggling going to be a bar? The crime was before Nov. 29, 1990, and I don't know if different rules applied then. Would those (if any) previous laws before 1990 allow her to now naturalize?

I just learned that our company trademark was deemed abandoned two years ago by the USPTO due to my failure to confirm a "use filing." The lawyer handling the filing never alerted me to the requirement. Can I revive the trademark, and if so, how?
