    In the normal world "pending" means exactly that. Pending, i.e., a decision is still outstanding. At USCIS it really means nothing. However, if you are a member of the normal world and, as long as you know something is pending and, you have not heard from USCIS in a long time, you have to poke them and remind them that something is pending.

    Did I explain that good?

    Very good explanation Koller. An example, my Naturalization application from June 2006 is still "pending" according to the USCIS website yet I became a Citizen in October last year!

    ....come to think of it. You are no longer illegal after that! Or, quoting federale: "your back is no longer wet"!

    Not illegal if doing AOS and have legal status when filed. If you were illegal at the time of filing, you are still illegal and can be placed in proceedings, be subject of expidited removal, and arrested. All assuming the petition is not fraudulent, then you are not legal at any time. Frivilout petitions included.

    I believe I red somewhere that when filing AOS, with EAD being issued - does not constitute being illegal but constitutes status for as long as the EAD is valid. I don't know where I read this anymore - maybe even here.
