    I-751 question

    In my case, the number i was able to track online was the one that was printed on the Fingerprint appointment letter. The number that was printed on the initial NOA recipt did not work. You may be out of luck with online tracking till you get your FP appt letter.

    Are biometrics necessary in form 751

    Yes, you need to do it again. After you file your I-751, you will get a letter asking you to get your Fingerprints and Biometrics captured. The letter will indicate the date, time and location.

    Applying for Advanced Parole - Question

    Your out of status will be forgiven only to make you eligible to file I-485 but NOT the I-131. If you leave the US and try to re-enter using your AP, you can bet that your entry will be denied and you will be banned from re-entering the US for 10 years. so dont even think of applying for an AP.

    Interview questions

    You will have to arrange for a translator, USCIS will not provide one. Unless the kids too are immigrating and are asked to be present at the interview, it is not required for them to be present. All you need is proof that they are your kids to prove that this marriage is bonafide.

    Applying I-130 within 1-2 weeks as visitor

    a visiting spouse? This clearly proves that the intention to immigrate existed when a non-immigrant visa was applied for. You need to consult an attorney.
