  1. If they cased the checks does that mean the I-485 will not be rejected?
  2. My wife is in the same situation. Extend the tourist visa by filing I-539. There is not enough time to get the actual extension before the 6 months expires but she is legal as long as the extension is pending. There are discussions here on it. Costs over 500 bucks.
  3. Appreciate all the responses. I don't think we have to worry about removal proceedings, but we will AOS here ASAP.
  4. Her I-130 was approved recently. We will probably file AOS here. I have often wondered which would be quicker, allowing the process to play out and interview in China, or AOS here in the USA. It looks very dismal for having a normal process in China.
  5. My wife is visiting during the I-130 process. Flight home was cancelled in February due to coronavirus. Applied for B2 extension, now fingerprint offices are closed. Obviously this will not be finished before her 6 months expires in May. Does she have legal status while the I-539 extension request is pending? Thanks
  6. Our I-130 was just approved. Wife is Chinese. She has a tourist visa, and has been here several times during the wait for the I-130. Her return trip to China in February was cancelled due to the coronavirus, now she is stuck here in USA indefinitely. Of course the Guangzhou embassy is not issuing visas at this time. I have applied for a 6 month extension of her visitor visa. I know we can actually adjust status here in the USA since she is here and has the approved I-130. Which would be quicker? My service center in Montgomery Alabama gives 8 to 30 months for I-485 approval. Under normal conditions we could complete the process in China in probably 6 months. Nobody knows when the virus will go away, or when flights to and from China will resume. Our preference is to complete the process in China since she needs to go home for a while anyway. I guess my question is what would you do in this situation ? Thanks
  7. I think you are not eligible, since ESTA is visa waiver. You can check. If you want to extend your stay in the United States, you must file a request with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on the Form I-539, Application to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status before your authorized stay expires. If you remain in the United States longer than authorized, you may be barred from returning and/or you may be removed (deported) from the United States. Check the date in the lower right-hand corner of your Form I-94, Arrival-Departure Record, to determine the date your authorized stay expires. We recommend that you apply to extend your stay at least 45 days before your authorized stay expires. You may apply to extend your stay if: You were lawfully admitted into the United States with a nonimmigrant visa Your nonimmigrant visa status remains valid You have not committed any crimes that make you ineligible for a visa You have not violated the conditions of your admission Your passport is valid and will remain valid for the duration of your stay You may not apply to extend your stay if you were admitted to the United States in the following categories: Visa Waiver Program Crew member (D nonimmigrant visa) In transit through the United States (C nonimmigrant visa) In transit through the United States without a visa (TWOV) Fiancé of a U.S. citizen or dependent of a fiancé (K nonimmigrant visa) Informant (and accompanying family) on terrorism or organized crime (S nonimmigrant visa)
  8. We waited 14 months exactly, then got approved at Nebraska Mid-March.
  9. My wife (Chinese) is in the exact same situation except she has a tourist visa. I applied for an extension of her visa. Cost over $500. Must do biometrics but all offices closed. Her stay time expires May 19. I hope the offices are open by then.
  10. My wife is Chinese. We filed an I-130 14 months ago that was approved at Nebraska this week. She also has a visitor visa and has been here in the states with me a large part of the time. She has traveled back and forth 3 times since we started. This last time, her return flight was cancelled due to the virus. So she is here indefinitely now. I applied for an extension of her visitor visa even though that was probably not necessary since she can't leave anyway. We intended to go through the normal visa process and do the interview in China. Now, who knows when things will back to normal? My question is, can we file an I-485 and adjust status since she is here in the states? The I-130 states that she is in China, and that process of sending the package to the NVC and then eventually on to the Chinese consulate will continue. If I file for AOS how will the two processes be reconciled? Is AOS even an option? thanks
  11. Receipt date for a case inquiry has moved up to 11/24/18. For all January-February filers still waiting.
  12. We have been waiting almost 14 months. I am going to start sending an email every day. This is beyond disgusting.
  13. I suppose somebody's January case has to be the last one processed. It may as well be you or me. I can't help but think that filing the I-129 backfired, because it stopped working in October right about the time I filed it.
