Visa expiring in five days! Can submit I-130?

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My friend has one month expiration on her student visa according to her passport and has been planning to marry her boyfriend this month. Her school just let her know that her visa actually expires in five days as her program has ended. She is distraught as her wedding is already planned! Does anyone know is it possible to get married and submit an I-130 in the next five days? Would she be overstaying her visa if she did this and stayed in the country or is her only option to marry and then leave the country in five days (a very expensive proposition for her right now)? Any advice is much appreciated!!!

*** moving to Adjustment of Status from Work, Student, & Tourist Visas forum, has nothing to do with K-3 visa ***

1. does she have any 2 year 'stay at home country ' requirement? if so, she'd have to ask for a waiver when filing the Adjustment of status.

2. file BOTH the I-130 and I-485, concurrently.

3. a few weeks of 'out of status' seems to be OK with USCIS.

4. have yer friend review http://www.visajourney.com/content/i130guide2 and http://www.visajourney.com/content/otheraos

5. email this page link to yer friend - click the 'email' link below.

I don't think that will be a problem or that she has to leave in five days.

People on student visa get a grace period after completion of studies (I keep forgetting if it is 30 or 60 days) before they are considered overstaying.

And as long as she didn't enter the US last time with the intent to immigrate, she can stay after getting married and then adjust status.

But after she files to adjust status, she can't leave the country until she either gets her GC or advance parole (travel permit)

ok - check her current visa stamp - should be (or it's absent) something about 2YR......

if it's not stamped in the visa, then supposedly she's not subject to the 2 year 'stay at home' rule.

I asked her! She doesn't know!

In that case, have her talk to her DSO immediately and before she starts the AOS process to be on the safe side... Ask he what visa is in her passport and what is written on her I-94. Providin these answers will better help us provide good advice...
