Good Day Everyone!

I just have a question. Is it possible to have a Training or Study while waiting for the Approval of the Adjustment of Status? And also how long does it take for you to have the working permit? And When you already have the green card can you already work or not yet? thank you in advance and god bless us all!

yes you can do a training while waiting for your work permit but not receiving any single cents from the company because you are not allowed to. some companies ask also for immigration status just like what happened to me i was asked for my status even i applied only as a trainee before because its a veterans hospital but just tell honestly your immigration status and explain when you can get your greencard.

about studying yes you can but you need to pay for everything not unlike if you are a greencard holder you can avail the benefit of being a lawful resident like financial aid and some funding from institution. hope it helps Godbless.
