Hi everyone I'm not sure if this the right section but I'm hoping a mod will move it if not.  My cousin (F1 visa holder) and her fiancee (permanent resident on a 10 year green card) wants to get married and remain residing in the states.  She's gainfully employed although her visa will be expiring May 2017 .  As far as I know, they can go ahead get married, do the paperwork for the 1-130 and simply do an adjustment of status.  I'm not sure what the time period is, but would she be out of status if it goes past her F1 expiry date? I'm not sure


Thanks everyone, I'm also recommending her to join this site, it has been good to me!

arrowSeparate I-130 Forms? (Wife & Stepchild)

Hello Everyone,


I filed the I-130 Form for my Alien Spouse, and listed her daughter as additional relative. Before filing, I scheduled an interview at the USCIS NYC Office to make sure I had everything in order. I was told the child (under 21) can be put on and NOT need a separate form filed. Our case has been accepted and when talking with USCIS I'm told I may need to file a separate I-130 for the child, but depending who interviews, they may accept as is. Will I need to file for my step child? Thanks for any helpful info!

arrowDivorced after 4 years of getting Greencard

Hello everyone, I have a question. January 2017 is when I am eligible to apply for citizenship under the 5 year rule (Jan 2017 makes it 5 years since I received my green card). My wife and I ended up divorcing last month (We were married for 7 years) and when we divorced, I was actually eligible to file for citizenship, but it didn't interest me at the time. As a matter of fact, I have been eligible to file for citizenship since January 2015 seeing that we were married at the time (3 year rule). I just never did it.

My question is, because of my divorce last month, do I now have to wait until the 5 year period (Jan 2017) to file for citizenship? Or can I file now seeing that we were married and living together for 3 years after getting my green card and I was in fact eligible? I have no problem waiting since January is right there but I want to travel the world and possibly live overseas so a US passport will come in handy to avoid visa fees etc.


So my question in other words, is does the 3 year rule still apply to me or do I now have to rely on the 5 year rule seeing that I am divorced?


Thanks for your assistance.
