  1. You can't file I-485 before you have your waiver, it'd be denied.
  2. TX is one of those states. I actually had trouble in another country, I had my TX marriage license (this is what it still says on top, but if one reads the whole document, it's clear I'm married), with a duly added apostille & the clerk took one look at it and said "This does not prove you are married this is just a permission to get married" & so far, no amount of explanation "of course it proves it, I received a GC and later US citizenship based on this marriage" has yet been successful.... Maybe next time when I try, I get so frustrated I give up on it for months (ironically it's to do with immigration to this other country LOL)
  3. FYI having a lawyer does not, in any way, make the process quicker. I echo other posters, consider marrying in Laos or a 3rd country & filing for a spousal visa instead. The timeline, filing to visa in hand, is similar but spousal visa is cheaper and your spouse will have LPR status (be able to work & travel) as soon as he arrives to the US on a spousal visa.
  4. Not necessarily, sometimes it's just goes under the radar, OP certainly has nothing to lose by trying.
  5. not really, I'm with @pushbrk why go there (& potentially cause RFEs, etc.) when OP can just count the ex & be done with it?
  6. I'm a little flabbergasted about the whole freaking out over the situation. Maybe it's not the simplest case but it does feel to me that the lawyers are scaring you beyond what's reasonable as a way to get your business. (If you decide to file, you can do it on your own.) If your wife is fine with moving to Europe then you have nothing to lose by filing for AOS. If it's denied, pack up & leave.... If it's approved, good for you.
  7. It can't cause an issue after age 31, if you apply at age 31, you'll have the 5-year "good moral character". However, it sounds like you turned 26 before you had to register AND you registered at some point, anyway. I don't see this causing a problem.
  8. That's strange, my husband & I got married less than 2 months after meeting each other and it only came up as one short question during the AOS interview. We're still married 11 years later.
  9. The US does not care one way or another. Now, the other country may care and take away that citizenship but that has nothing to do with the US or USCIS & everything to do with the other country's laws.
  10. Denounce your former citizenship? No, that is not required. At the oath ceremony one renounces one's allegiance to their former country, not one's citizenship...
  11. Actually being arrested does not mean one broke the law. People do get arrested on false charges. That, however is irrelevant to the topic, all arrests need to be disclosed because that is what the form says.
