Hi everyone,

 

As an F1 student adjusting status through marriage, do I have to send USCIS any documents showing my legal status such as the school's I-20?

 

Thanks.

I did, (been on F1 status going on 12 years- I sent copies of I-20s from all the schools I attended, even the ones indicating I had CPT and OPT and OPT extension. Maybe overkill but why not. 

No rfe, I still wait on interview.

There is NO requirement that you be in legal status when adjusting status as an IR of a US citizen.  Sending i-20s does not hurt or help you. Just creates more work for officer going through your evidence in deciding what is useful and what to discard.

You’re right. Might be reason it took a while for my status to update to ready to schedule interview.

 

Part of reason I sent them is I had the documents and I also read someone’s interview experience where all the guy was asked by the IO was to present his old I-20.

It would have saved me time than spend hours of excavating old I-20.  I figured it wouldn’t hurt
