Hi ,

I have a question. I am a permanent resident . My son has a 10 year tourist visa. If he comes to US with his visa and I file the petition for Alien Relative,can he stay in the US until he gets his visa#?

No he cannot stay until his visa is issued. There's a 7-YEAR wait for the F2B category for your country (assuming he is still SINGLE). His tourist visa will not let him stay that long. He can only do visits. Overstays are not forgiven for relatives of LPRs.

You have to file the petition, wait until your priority date is current, then you will get a visa , then he can adjust status...but the problem it could take long time, and he would be out of status (illegal) during this waiting period...and because you're a LPR , he can't adjust unless you get your citizenship first..

NO He has 10 years visa doesn't mean he can stay in US for 10 years , the custom will stamp the expired date on his visa and he has to leave the country before that date. He will become the overstay visa during the time he waits for the F2B category to be current and it takes at least 7 years and up..... Some categories are not allowed the overstay visa and it's gonna be a lots of issues to be solved then.
