From what i understand the U.S. legal resident would first have to become a naturalized citizen and then he could begin the petition of asking for his wife. I do not believe that a person w/ a green card, even if valid, can ask for an immigrant. Actually, a permanent resident can file a petition for his or her spouse, but from what INS told me, it takes 2-3 years at best to get the petition approved. However, if the permanent resident became a naturalized citizen first, it would only take 6 months or so to get the same paperwork approved. >>short answer>>> get you citizenship first, then petition for her,.. it's faster>>
No, if you are a permanent resident in the US, you are treated like an American citizen in terms of colleges and universities.
Yes I work at the financial aid office a college. If you are a permanent resident you can apply for the FAFSA and you get get loans and scholarships through that. It is a free application. Don't be fooled by fake web sites.

Yes they can. However it takes about 5 years to do so. During this period the person with the student visa has to either maintain a student visa and stay in school or adjust their visa if graduating for example. Usually sometime during this 5 year period the resident alien becomes a citizen and at that time the spouse holding the student visa can adjust to a permanent resident.
A legal alien has to be a permanent resident for at least 5 years before becoming a US citizen. However, it may take a long time before the alien become a permanent resident. For example, an alien could be on a student visa for 10 years before becoming a permanent resident. They would then have to wait another 5 years before becoming a US citizen.
A refugee claimant cannot. A convention refugee , once he/she is a permanent resident and hes calculated that they meet the residencyt requirment, then yes.
Referring to the application process of colleges and universities, typically you do not need a social security number. For individuals who do not have one, the institution will generate a student identification number. However, if you are a permanent resident or US citizen and wish to apply for financial aid assistance, you will have a problem.
If the student continues to maintain his residence in CA (presumably his parent's home) and takes no action to become a permanent resident of NE, he may keep his CA license plates. However, if the the student takes action to establish himself as a resident of NE (buys property, pays taxes, etc) he may be considered a legitimate NE resident and required to register his car in his new state of residence.
