Q. My i94 Expires on 13 august 2020 and i have applied for COS i539 for F2 Visa on 28 june. Do i have to go back ?
A: Hi there, if you have properly filed your I-539- then you should receive filing receipt showing that your case is filed and pending. During the time of adjudication of your I-539, you should stay in the US. If you leave the country, your application will be canceled. Good lack, hopefully your application will be approved!
Q. Can unemployment assistance prevent me from getting my green card?
A: Receiving unemployment will not affect your eligibility for green card.
Q. I filed an extension for my J1 visa but I got denied. Will it affect my application for AOS and petition in the future?
A: Sine you are out of status now, the best option for you is to marry your boyfriend ( I assume he is a US citizen?). After the marriage he can file marriage based petition for you along with the AOS application from you. Having pending I-130/I-485 would allow you to remain legally in the U.S. even if you status has expired. Good luck!
