  • family-based petition

    Hello everybody!

    My stepfather who adopted me in the U.S. (adult adoption since I was over 21) is going to petition for me. I will fall under the 1st preference. This process will take about 4 years, and then I should get my visa. I heard that as soon as I come to the U.S. they will stamp my passport (that will be my temporary GC), and then I will get the GC itself in the mail. Please tell me if I am right in my understanding of how it works. Thank you.

      No, not correct. When your I-130 is approved, you will be asked to go to your local U.S. consulate for immigrant visa processing, where you will have to submit evidence (such as birth certificates, police clearances, etc.) and have a medical examination and interview. If you are found to be admissible (i.e., no crimes of moral turpitude, healthy, etc.), then your passport will be stamped and you will be able to enter the U.S. Once you enter the U.S. you will be able to file for adjustment of status (the "green card"), including work and travel authorizations.
