Q. Do F-1 students have a deadline of submitting green card application? Is it the end of the student's 60-day grace period
A: No. The law allows you to file for adjustment of status if you were admitted and inspected into the United States. The fact that you fall out of status is not an issue, but being placed in removal proceedings for deportation complicates matter. There are additional restrictions that have been enhanced since the Trump Administration began regulating the process. As a result, I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any other complications. Good luck. The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
Q. Considering to apply for naturalization in Jan 2021 as per my 4 years and 2 days continuous residency eligibility?
A: You misunderstand that law. You must be physically present for a continuous physical period at least 4 years, without significant disruptions. However, if you are NOT married to a U.S. citizen, you must have been granted lawful permanent resident status at least five years before attending a ceremony. Therefore, Congress will allow you to file within ninety days of the five year anniversary, but no sooner. Otherwise, you should be denied naturalization. Note that there may be other complications that can disqualify you, perhaps, lead not only to denial but also rescission or deportation. Many grounds of deportation don’t require a criminal conviction. As a result, I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any complications. Good luck. The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
Q. I have a pending asylum case. My parents got US citizenship. As I know they can petition for me as for a relative.
A: I agree with Mr. Vega. I posted an answer to this, earlier. It is unclear whether you will need to return to your home country to consular process. You can fall out of status while you await a final decision on your asylum petition with the immigration court. As a result, I strongly recommend an appointment or teleconference with a competent, ethical and experienced immigration attorney before there are any more complications. Good luck. The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
