From B2 Visa to change of Status

22 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, How are doing today. So I just wanna share my scenario with you guys and wanted to know your advice on what should I do next when applying a change of status. I met my boyfriend who is a USC last April 13 2019 in New York and after that day we became inseparable but I have to go back to my home country in the Philippines. Since I left NY last May 5 2019 we keep our communication lines open, we do video call/ chat everyday and emails. We have decided to live together and get married in the US once I return in December 2019. Now my question is, what type of form should we need to file when applying a change of status. What I have right now is the picture of us together in his apartment and a picture of his sister in law with his nieces and some emails as a proof  that our relationship is true. Thank You

You cannot travel to the US on your B2 Visa with intent to adjust status. That's a Visa fraud. A big no!

 

The Visa you're looking for is K1 Visa. Research on that. Though I'm amazed you guy want to marry after knowing each other for 2 MONTHS. lol? 

 

 

Yeah.. we fall inlove and we are still in the process of getting to know each other. You know when you are already old (35-43 him both single) no more games and decided get married. It’s gonna be my 3rd time visiting the US this coming December. And I have a friend of mine who has a friend in B2 visa as well and got married in the US in the span of 5-6 months and she changed her status and now she got a green card visa

I can't speak to their circumstances. AOS from B2 can be done. However, it is not a path for you as you are outside the US. You cannot enter the US with intent to stay/AOS.

If you're planning on committing Visa fraud then I'd advice this thread to be closed because no one will help you. 

 

If you're ready to marry you need a proper Visa- K1 Visa. Then do AoS from that.  And friend of yours committed fraud also so I wouldn't listen to that advice. (If she entered US with that intent)

What you are asking is for a member to likely commit a VJ Terms of Service violation.

 

A B2 visa is for visiting, not for immigrating. Period.


Completed: K1/K2 (271 days) - AOS/EAD/AP (134 days) - ROC (279 days)

I know it’s risky but as long as you prove that the marriage is not fraud plus the evidence you have. Do you think it can stand a chance?

You dont understand. The legitimacy of the relationship doesnt matter. It's not "risky". Its immigration fraud. Reporting. 

Oh ok. I got your point. You dont have to report me. So K-1 visa you said? Does my boyfriend need to visit me in my home country?

You clearly don't know if you're planning on using it for immigrating.

Not "risky". It's actually fraud to use it as a means for immigrating. The fraud is not about the marriage, but about the improper use of the visa.

Imagine what would happen if you told CBP about said plan...that'd be a quick denial of entry and possibly an expedited deportation to go with it.
