Hi, 

My mom (LPR) filed i-130 for my 17yo sister. She is currently out of status but has not started accruing unlawful presence. The approval notice mentioned that she can adjust status by filing form i-485.

I want to know if there is anyone who has been in this situation and was successful with adjusting status in the US. We are worried about the possibility of her getting stuck outside the US if she leaves to process outside the US at a consulate.

 

Thanks.

Are you sure about that?  You have to be in status to adjust status, unless immediate relative of USC.

The petitioner is a Green card holder?  If so, there seem to be a couple issues.

When the I-130 application was submitted, where did your mom used as your sister's current location and her address? If she noted in the application that her current residence the US, she can apply for I-485.

As mentioned the child is out of status.
