arrowAOS from F1 student status

I have a question.

I am an F1 student or I can say I was an F1 student.

My mother filed a petition I-130 which was approved.

My priority date was 6/4/2007

My priority date became current on the November 2014.

I sent the i-485 adjustment of status on  10-30-2014

It was received on the 11/2/2014

On November 18 the case status online said that  USCIS has received my case and they are working on it.

On December 3 received the received notice with the appointment for the Biometrics December 11-2014

I had biometrics done

My old EAD card expired on the 1/5/2015

My EAD card was approved and sent on the 1/8/2015

I know that I was able to adjust status here in the US because I kept my legal status as a F1 student.

My mother is a US citizen petitioning for a unmarried son older than 2 years old

My question is:

Am I protected (now that I sent the adjustment of status)

Or Do I still have to renew an I-20 one more time and take classes to keep the F1 status until I received my permanent residency card?

arrowPOE for CR-1, advance clearance versus US soil?

Hi Everyone,


So, my husband's visa was FINALLY delivered last week, and we are in the process of shopping for airfare.  Airfare from Venezuela to the US is very expensive these days, and I am considering buying him a flight to Aruba, and a separate booking to continue to California, as that comes out significantly cheaper. 


I am recalling from my recent experience traveling through Aruba that it involves advance clearance on most, if not all, of the flights going to the US (that means that travels go through customs and immigration in Aruba before the plane departs, which allows them to arrive in the US as though it were a domestic flight).  My question is, for a CR-1 visa recipient entering the US for the first time, will there be any problems associated with going through immigration in an advanced clearance facility, as opposed to a US POE, such a s Miami? 


Part of what leads me to ask the question is that I seem to remember a member on one of the NVC threads whose husband from the UK entered through Dublin, which also has advance clearance, and they were blaming that for something (EAD?) not having been done properly.  Has anyone else had experience, either negative or positive, with using advance clearance POEs?  The only references I have found so far were for K-1 visas.


Thanks for the info!

arrowPassport expires soon, wait to file I-130?

My wife's passport is expiring soon in February 2015. We're waiting on the renewal, which is not a quick process. Can we go ahead and submit our completed I-130 packet and get this ball rolling with a photocopy of the soon-to-be expiring passport (She'll have the renewal in a few months, well in advance of the interview)..... or do we need to wait :( for it to be renewed first?

arrowHow is auto-expedite queue applied? (split topic)

It's actually better to start the process abroad because it's faster. It may also be better to move back soon afterwards to establish domicile and if possible have a job for the affidavit of support, unless you have a joint sponsor or sufficient assests.
There is an unofficial auto-expedite for couples who live together abroad. But only if your file is sent to California or Vermont service centers which is beyond your control.


I live abroad with my wife (18 months now) and we are getting ready to send in the i130 packet finally for the first time on Monday (December filers, yay!).


HOW is that quiet auto-expedite determined and applied??? How will they know I'm living abroad? Mail service here is VERY unreliable, so I had planned on putting my USA PO Box as my contact, and someone back home will be checking my mail and scanning anything of importance for me... BUT.... how will that impact that possibility of an auto-expedite? How can I show that I'm really living abroad?
