Adjustment of Status from F1

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I came to the US as F1 visa, but in June of this year I got married with an US Citizen. We submitted my adjustment of status in Jul, 2017 and also, we sent the I-131 filled asking authorization to travel outside the country due a trip I had bought w my husband in Jan, 2017. Looking up their website I noticed is taking three months to get an advance parole, so I decided make an Infopass and at the USCIS office they advised me to send my evidences by mail asking an expedite. In Sept, 4th they received my documents (what I checked through the USPS website) but I didn't receive any update so I decided to call to National Benefits Center and they opened a new expedite over the phone on Sept, 15th. The follow next day they update my request asking the evidences but I didn't received the requesting by mail because they wrote my e-mail incorrectly. On Sept, 22 I sent all the proves through fax with the information that the attendant gave to me but I didn't sent the original request once I didn't received due my e-mail was incorrectly. Also, over the phone they updated my email and open a new expedite, but I don't think is gonna work anymore. I'm pregnant, married and I have all my documents. Can I abandon my case and come back w/ my valid tourist visa and then re-apply for my adjustment here? Is too much money to lose w this trip, I cannot change the flights, hotels, etc, and is important to me stay with my parents at this moment. Here I have my assurance, I've been doing my prenatal, and my husband lives here. I really don't know what to do anymore.

If you leave without AP you abandon your application and will need to go through Consulate processing to enter the US, takes about a year.
