Hi all,

My i-130 was approved (!!) finally while I am here in the US visiting for the winter. I am just curious if I am able to call NVC and explain to them that I am visiting for until January and change my address to my husbands US address and maybe not have to go to Montreal for my interview? Or does this look like I am living illegally?

Thanks for the help! I know I could know the i-485 route, but it's more expensive and I don't think any quicker now that I am at this step?

You definitely have to go back to Canada. Applying for I-485 while visiting the US will lead to questions of misrepresentation when you crossed the border that could lead to a denial. And now that the I-130 process is underway and presumably already sent to NVC for processing, you will need to conduct an interview in Montreal.
