You might be able to use the petty offense exception if you are convicted of a misdemeanor and be okay in case you are placed in removal proceedings. Best to get your attorney to fight it and have the charges thrown out.

I don’t see a problem, you and the children will still get the Green Card as your relationship with your sister will not change even if you get a divorce. If your spouse is not migrating with you, inform the uscis of the same.

He can stay in the US for a total of 1 year on a visitors visa, they usually give for an initial period of 3-6 months at the port of entry and you can apply for an extension of upto 6 months. You have to have a good reason for asking for an extension, they might deny the request. In which case you have to leave. You cannot stay beyond the time that you requested even if you don’t get a response from them within that period.

You should apply for a Labor and I-140 for yourself, you still have sufficient time. This way you can continue to extend your H-1b for three years once your I-140 is approved or for 1 year once your labor cert or I-140 has been pending for 1 year. You also have the option of converting to H-4, but given the present scenario it might be risky to only depend on that option.

You cannot be on two status's at the same time, if you want to move your status to I-485, you can start using your I-485 EAD and withdraw your L-2 application before it gets approved. If you want to keep your L-2 applicaiton active and change to L-2 status, you should start working only once you get your L-2 EAD, you should not start working on I-485 EAD. Travelling on I-485 AP does allow you to stay on L-2 when you come back, but working on I-485 EAD changes your status to pending I-485, you cannot get back on to a L-2. I hope this is clear, otherwise you can get a consult from our office.

In order to apply for a H-4 visa you will have to first withdraw your request for the H-1b visa, as you have correctly pointed out, it is hard to say how long administrative processing will take, it sometimes takes upto 6 months.
