If you AOS from B1/B2, at what point does your B1/B2 become invalid? I read an account where they punched it in an interview, but wondered if they invalidate it when you apply for AOS?

I don't know but I can imagine that it happens the moment you file for AOS cause in that moment you show an immigrant intend. You can't use it anymore anyways cause your time of traveling outside the country is over till you get the greencard or AP.

How can you use a B2 after you apply for adjustment of status????  The moment you exit the US prior to having approved advance parole, you abandon the adjustment.

Are you adjusting status by marrying a US citizen? Well, as they said, you lose your B1/B2 visa at the time your AoS package gets accepted and you received your NOA1. From this time, you cannot leave the country until you receive your travel permit (I-131 form for advance parole). You could not leave the country and use your tourist visa.

 

Are you already in the US? Be careful because if you are outside the US and try to come in a tourist visa with the intention to adjust status, that's fraud. But if you entered in a tourist visa without intention to stay and during your stay you decided to get married to a US citizen and decide to apply for adjustment of status, then that is ok and they should not invalidate your case in the interview if you show a legitimate and boda-fide marriage.

 

I hope this helps a little

We’ve been married 7 years and have 4 children. We are in the U.S. and entered with no intent to become residents, but 2020 has changed a lot of things!


It makes sense expressing intent to immigrate would mean visa is invalid.

In that case then go ahead and apply for AoS if you want to live here.

Your B status doesn't automatically terminate when the AOS is filed. It continues running until your I-94 expires, but you can't extend it. I think your B status does terminate, however, if you enroll in school or start working based on your EAD.

 

Your B visa doesn't get automatically cancelled. If you re-enter the US using advance parole, the officer may cancel the B visa at the port of entry, though they also may not even see it at all.
