Hello all,

My wife came in April on a K1-visa and we married earlier this month (June 8th). We just now received our marriage certificate in the mail from the State of New York and are ready to file the for her Adjustment of Status tomorrow (June 28). Her I-94 will expire on June 30th! (2 days after we mail it). Is this going to be a problem? Do we need to do something to make her "legal" until her green card processing is completed? I don't want to mess anything up after coming this far!

Thanks in advance!

This "legal" thing is a big topic of debate here on VJ. As far as I know, once you were married and file for AOS you are abiding by the terms of the visa and the I-94 is "overlooked" to a point. Just remember, no traveling outside the US or working until you have EAD and then GC.

No, it's not a problem. Think of someone who didn't marry until the day before the I-94 expiry, for example. Or take a look at my timeline. lol

Moving from the Philippines regional forum to AOS Process.

The I-94 is not "overlooked to a point". It's completely irrelevant in adjudicating the AOS. They will not deny AOS to a K1 simply because their I-94 expired. Ever.

Jim, I agree with you. The only reason I say this is because whenever someone says it's irrelevant, there starts an argument about it. Jim, maybe you can show us in the law, USCIS manual or State Dept rules or whatever that can put this question to bed for good.

You are fine. Me and mine married within the 90 days but did not file till about 1 month or more after I-94 expired with no problems at all.
