Hello, my ex husband failed to cooperate with me to file the I751 jointly. Matter of fact he put me out of the house and denied me entry and access to my documents. I was referred to a women's center who changed my address with USCIS and began preparations of my I751 and I360.
A few weeks later, I received a NTA informing me that I was in removal proceedings. At the Master calendar hearing, my attorney got permission to go ahead and file the late documents.
On June 23rd, 2010 USCIS received my I751(11 months after my CR expired), along with the I360. It has now been almost 7 months and my case is still in initial review stage. I have done biometrics.
I am scheduled to attend immigration court on January 19th,2011.
I have a few questions
a) can I work while I am in removal proceedings?
b) on average, how long does it usually take for USCIS to process cases similar to mine?
c) Can the judge adjudicate my case or must she wait for USCIS?
