Plese READ THE POST. They are trying to adjust from within the US being married to an LPR and not a citizen

You do not have a visa number available. From What I see and read you are married to an LPR. you can not adjust astatus from within the united states. You are going to need to leave and have to file a waiver for the overstay. when does your spouse become a citizen? You will not be able to get a work pernit as you have no I-485 pending. I would suggest that you get an attorney as this is not going to happen from here and may be even harder to adjust once your apouse becomes a citizen.

Spouse of LPR are not permitted to adjust from with in the united states. :guides:

-marriage to a GC holder (me)- Feb 18, 2009

Why is it that the only one who can stop the crying is the one who started it in the first place?

thank you for reviewing it.

I believe your wife's application was rejected because you are not a citizen. Since you are an LPR, you have to sponsor her and then wait for your priority date to become current before you can send the AOS package in.

Meaning not being married to a citizen does not qualify them for an immediate visa number. The wait is 4-5 years and should not be done from within the US.

rejection notice says- Based on information you provided, your priority date does not appear to be current. Please refer to the Visa Bulletin published monthly by the US Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs to determine the availability of immigrant visa numbers in your immigration category. When your priority date is earlier than the correlating cut-off date listed in the current Visa Bulletin, you will then be eligible to submit your I-485 application

But our lawyer said that we don't need to be in a line for visa 'cause she didn't leave the US.

we sent them together, but as long as I-485 was rejected we had to pay for I-765

You need to change lawyers. You can not adjust status from within the United states by being married to a GC holder. When does the spouse become a citizen?

They are working on cases for spouses of LPR's that were filed on or before December of 2004

Then by staying in the United states you are risking Deportation as you have no legal standing being here right now. You Visa is expired and you are not eiligible to adjust status at this time. Be very careful because deportation is way worse than a waiver for an over stay.........

Fire the LAWYER

The I-130 is just a petition for the alien relative whether they are here or in another country. We have an I-130 pending since Dec of 2007 for our now 20 year son who the father as a LPR applied for him. They will accept and hold the I-130 and approve it in about 2-3 years and then send it to the NVC where it will wait for a visa number to become availe. If you read the guides here on top you may gt a better understanding of the procedure.

but even the site of USCIS says:

"Eligibility Information: Who May Apply to Become a Lawful Permanent Resident While in the United States?

You may be eligible to apply for adjustment to permanent resident status if you are already in the United States and if one or more of the following categories apply to you.

Family Member

You are the spouse, parent, unmarried child under age 21, the unmarried son or daughter over age 21, the married son or daughter, or the brother or sister of a United States citizen and have a visa petition approved in your behalf.

You are the spouse or unmarried son or daughter of any age of a lawful permanent resident and you have a family-based visa petition approved in your behalf."
