We contribute to the culture, welfare, and economy of the communities we live in across the 50 states, proving the American Dream is real and should continue to be accessible to all.
For that Supna Zaidi, Esq will be answering the Immigration queries for free.
The question asked today was
Question: Can my wife stay in US without any visa if her I-130 is approved but her I-485 is still pending? I am not a US citizen yet. My wife is on F1 status. Can she stay in US without maintaining her F1 status on I-130 approval base?
Answer: Your wife can stay in the US and wait for her green card interview if her green card application has been filed, ie her I-485 application is pending. Otherwise, she is accruing overstay days in the US. That will have a negative impact on her ability to legally reside in the US.
