  • Student to CG

    I met a person few weeks ago. She came to US as student on F-1. Completed her school then become out of status (Illegal).
    Her I-130 was filed when parents were LPR, no sooner the parents had become USC, they up graded I-130 and after some time they had become LPR while in the US.

    Since the time they were in US as Student+Illegal, will this period of time can be counted towards the Citizenship.(Since they arrived in US in 1998 and todate they are in US. One short visit of two months during this time.

      A person has to have been a permanent resident for five years, less ninety days, before they can apply for citizenship...unless they're married to - and living with - an American citizen spouse, at which point they can apply for citizenship after three years, less ninety days.

      In any case, time spent in America as a non-immigrant doesn't count toward anything...except for a ban against reentry if a person remains illegally for a period exceeding 180 days.

          She needs to go to the USCIS office in person to check the status of her I-130. They will let her know if she can still adjust her status. Marrying her will not help. Other option is for her to go overseas to her home country and apply for a visa as your spouse.
