Thread: process for the i130 form

  1. #1
    hello
    my story is this. i've been leaving in the U.S.for 11 years as an illigal imigrant and now that i married a us citizen i filed the i130 but don't know what the procedure is. my husband and i are very confused.
    we filed in January
    recieved a case # in february
    and now our case has been aproved.but what does that mean?
    what comes next?
    is it true that because he is in the army the process can take less time?
    is there a penalty for being in the U.S. illigally or am i excluded since my parent brought me when i was a minor?
    I hope that someone can help me answer some of this questions
    thanks!!

    did you enter with a visa and overstayed it? or did you cross the border without inspection?

    in any case, if your I-130 is approved, apply for AOS. go to www.uscis.gov for procedures.

    AOS, as Lucy indicates, is Adjustment of Status. There is a link on this site on the left to download the forms, I believe the form is an I485 and there should be instructions with it.

    Good luck.

    Lucy,
    i crossed the border without inspection
    so you are saying that now that i have been aproved i have to fill out another form to get a job permit?
    i will take a look at that form!!
    thanks

    I believe because you entered without inspection (even as a minor) you are not elligible for AOS. You might want to confer with a immigration lawyer on this but I think you might have to return to your home country for a while.

    Mr. Froggy is right. You cannot adjust status if you entered without inspection.

    Get a lawyer.

    how can someone enter US without inspection?

  9. #9
    My husband and I just filed our I130. He entered without inspection too and has been here for 8 years. We have been married for 2. Since he entered w/o inspection he cannot adjust status and we must have interview in Juarez and we will be denied and he will be given a 10 year bar from entering U.S. Then you file a I-601 waiver which is asking for an exception to the 10 year ban due to certain hardships.

    You should go to www.immigrate2us.net/forum/index.php and there is much more info and help there.

    So far, I have been able to do without an attorney and understand what is going to happen. Go check it out!

    Good luck!

    Hi again,

    Just wondering at which service center you submitted your I130. That seems so quick. I thought it took about a year!!
