Hi...

I am in a very sad situation...

My husband (US citizen) got arrested recently and he will be in jail for a long time... i came here in the US last year via K1 visa and we haven't filed AOS yet... I don't know what I will do because I can't have a job yet or even have a drivers license... I don't know how I will support myself when my husband is in jail...I just wonder if i can file AOS so I could have the ability to work and somehow support myself...

your help will be appreciated

You cannot AOS for yourself unless for approved cases such as your spouse passing away or abuse. This is a sad situation. You may need a lawyer when you decide to adjust.

You and your husband will need to find a joint sponsor for the adjustment of status petition.

What state are you residing? Is there any FIL-AM organization in your place? What I am more concerned now is how you will survive on your daily needs. What about your in laws? if you decide to go home or adjust status you need some money. Try to search if there is any FIL-AM organization close to you and maybe they can help you.

Well, you have to do something. Sorry to be so blunt, but given the circumstances it all falls to you. You will need to find money to pay rent & buy food, do the filing to stay, or purchase a plane ticket to return home.

Family being out of state is not a big challenge. If they are willing to help, that is a good starting point. If not, then have your husband contact friends that can help.

In order to be able to work, get a drivers license or state ID card, etc. you will need to adjust status. That will take money and the ability to complete the forms. Also you and your husband will need a joint sponsor to satisfy the Affidavit of Support requirement.

What did you learn at the CFO seminar you particapted in before you left the Phil. Did they share information about how to contact your embassy if you should find yourself in a situation such as this.

Look in the yellow pages for the Phil embassy phone number.

SHe can work if she will have an EAD. If she gets a job then she can save to adjust her status with a co-sponsor.

Her I-94 is expired, so she won't get a valid EAD.
