hello guys...I need some advice pls help me if u don't mind.. :help:

I got here thru K-1 visa last May and my visa's expiration is until October 2008,

when I entered the country I was given until August 2008 to marry and we did

last June. We haven't filed my AOS yet due to financial problems. I am expecting

now and the medical fees and bills are so high..and that made me choose between

using the money for filing AOS or going back to PI, I chose the latter. My problem

is..will the immigration allow me to just go back without any problem or do i have

to file anything? Pls help me if you know any info..I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

You wont have a problem returning to home country, HOWEVER you will not be able to return to USA, and essentially will be starting all over again applying for an IMMIGRANT visa this time.

Why not apply what you would spend on airfare on AOS?

You can't go out of the country without your Green card and the only way to have a green card is to adjust your status .Why go home when you can spend the money for your AOS instead of airfare?You can go home but you can't go back to US, you will have to start the process again.

You won't have any problems leaving the US but you won't be allowed back unless you get another visa just like YuAndDan said. You will then have to apply for either a K3 or CR1/IR1 visa to be able to re-enter the US.

You will need a new passport in general because of your new name...you should also be ok if you bring a copy of your marriage license with you :thumbs: Unfortunately, they are right about leaving the country. Hopefully you and your husband can figure out a way to afford the costs here instead of giving up the K1 you have. I'm the USC and my husband is always shocked at the cost of health care in the US. :(


See my timeline for my K-1 and AOS/EAD/AP details.

Again, Not a problem, this question comes up all the time.

Simply book airline tickets using the name as it appears in the passport.

Please understand that, if you leave, you will not be able to return to the U.S. without going through the process of obtaining a spousal visa. The K-1 is a one time entry visa and you will not be allowed to use it again to return to the U.S.

good luck with whatever you decide.

I would try to tuff it out here and save up to file the AOS. If you go back you will have to start the process all over again only this time as a K-3.

You could also apply for the AOS and request a waiver of the fee.
