F1 student got married and dropping out school after, dangerous ?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I found this great sites few weeks back after Me and my bf got married. I plan to drop out school in a month because I am in a art school and it does nothing but draining my money. We were filing out forms today and got stuck in the i 864, My husband has been making cash tips and didn't bother to file taxes in the past few years. But he started doing it after we got married because we figured this is important. So should we wait till the end of the year when he can get the taxes info, or go ahead and file the document, If i drop out school which will be in a weeks and normally you have to go back to your country after that, But i got married to a USC before that, can i stay in the US even we haven't file anything? I heard it will be forgiven because I enter the country legally, but I still want to make sure. Because Once i drop out school my visa should be not longer valid.

In case this is too confusing, here is the simple version:

October 20th, got married while holding F1 visa.

Going to drop out school on November 17. (F1 visa no longer valid)

Planing to file documents for adjustment of status in January 2015.

During November 17 to January if I stay in the US, Will i get into any trouble?

If you stay out of troubles way then you should be good until you file.

Know that the school will terminate your sevis record once you become out of status.

It's highly unlikely ICE will come after you for a student visa voilation but there's still a slight risk though. A very small fraction students have been served a notice to appear in court for removal proceedings after status violation when their SEVIS got terminated. If you happen to be one of those unlucky ones, that'll complicate your process as you'll have to adjust status through an immigration judge first as I485 will be denied by USCIS initially. That's where attorney fees will also come to play. I know it's a big waste of money but your safest bet will be just hang in for 1 quarter/semester and throw in your application in janaury as you say. Remember you can always have a joint sponsor who is a citizen or permanent resident and also file as soon as you can though if your husbands income is an issue.

Why are you attending that course if it is meaningless?

I love art, but i just don't want to do school anymore, I mean, you cant really learn much from an art school, and they charge so much!!, Many people find them in a odd place of their life after a few years of college and they realized the school is not gonna help their future. Unless you are doing law, business or medical profession, which is require a degree to get a job. I have wasted 3 years in the art school, I should stop 2 years ago. when people spend the same amount of money to become doctors and lawyers but most art student work at Starbucks. How nice lol

Art school would still get you a degree. A degree goes a long way in the working world regardless what it's for.

Art school would still get you a degree. A degree goes a long way in the working world regardless what it's for.

Sad thing is that most professors in the end of the course they will somehow indicates the useless of an art degree, because nobody look at your degree when you have a strong portfolio, You don't need an degree to work anywhere in art you need a portfolio to show that you can, that's it. Unless it is architecture(which require master degree to take the test to be an registered architect). Besides working as an artist to support ones future is unrealistic unless you are very famous.

All the thing below are comes from different professor of my classes in the past 2 years, not my own opinion, and they all tried to work as an artist solely, but it is different when you work in a corporate company, like people who do animations or game design, they will have stable income but they have a lot to learn in school, so they don't really waste money going to art school. But my major is illustration its basically stylize drawing for books and stuff. In my case school doesnt do much to me, it is myself handwork and talent that bring me to any job opportunity. And the tuition is over ten thousand every quarter. Why not just save my last year, forty thousands can do lot of thing even start my own business.
