This is my friend's situation:

About 5 years ago, his mother (green card holder) filed for immigrant visa for him to come to the US. He got tired of waiting and came here on a student visa. He is going to school now. Last month, the scheduled an interview for him in him home country in Palestine; Jerusalem embassy in May of this year. Problem is he doesn't have enough money to go back home and he doesn't want to go home anyway. The questions are:

1. Can he change the interview so can be interviewed in the US instead? How?

2. If he can't change the interview, can he reschedule? How?

3. What happens if he doesn't go to the interview and files another application to start over but within the US?

Please Please advise. He doesn't have a lot of time.

THANK YOU in advance.

He better find the money to go there and have the interview at the embassy. Reason being that he would have to file for AOS here in USA the form I-485 ($1010.00) and prepare everything for that form as supporting evidence. Also, the AOS may take several months and he NEEDS to stay in status (go to school)until he gets his CG in his hand. So if he looks at having to pay for additional time in school versus getting the interview at the embassy. I would go for the interview already scheduled in MAY.

Thanks a lot for the reply. I don't think he minds going to school. He is not paying for it :)

So, can his mom adjust his status EVEN if she is a green card holder?

Thanks!

I am not sure how he can change the interview with the embassy (maybe contact them directly). I am not very familiar with that I would imagine you would contact the embassy or NVC and let them know that he wants to adjust his status here instead. After everything is cleared from them and the case back at USCIS he can apply for AOS.

Yes, he can as long as he is IN STATUS, he can do Adjustment Of Status in USA. He needs to file form I-485 and other forms that go along with that. The only thing is what kind of student visa does he have: J1, F1 or M1? I am going to do AOS in USA as soon as a visa number is available for spouse of LPR.

He has F1 student. How long do you think this will take? 4 months? 6 months?

As F-1 student visa he is fine to do AOS. The Adjustment of Status in Salt Lake City, UT it looks like it takes about 4 months from the time of the application.

Field Office Processing Dates for Salt Lake City UT as of: January 31, 2010

Form Form Name Processing Timeframe:

I485 Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status October 03, 2009

I am not sure how long it will take to transfer the case from NVC to USCIS that you have to find out by calling them. I hope this helps a little. :star:

I thought only immediate relatives of USCs were eligible for AOS. Not LPRs. I could be wrong though.

Any person who is in USA can do adjustment of status as long as they are LEGALLY present here and maintained legal non-immigrant status (such as a student in F-1 status). :yes:

Yeap, is seems to be simple like that. In my I-130 approval notice it says that I could change my mind to go to the embassy for the interview (just request that from them).

He has F1 student. How long do you think this will take? 4 months? 6 months?

What is his priority date? He may have to wait a little to file with USCIS

Raise the money and go to the interview.. AOS costs over $1000, may as well use that money for the interview ticket!! :bonk:


Invictus..

Out of the night that covers me,

Black as the Pit from pole to pole,

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud.

Under the bludgeonings of chance

My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the Horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the years

Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll.

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.

William Ernest Henley
