Adjustment of Status question about Current Status

I entered on a visitors visa and overstayed. I have had an I-130 filed and approved. My priority date is about to become current and I am applying for adjustment of status under 245(i). Is it appropriate for me to answer the question about my current status as " Adjustment Applicant"?

Without knowing more, I'd say overstay. However, I'm happy to meet with you discuss it further with a free consultation at my Tampa office for your own peace of mind. Don't hesitate to call for an appointment 813-226-2144.

I would say the visa that you entered, for example B2 and then overstay , so it would read B2 overstay

This is only a short advice- you should not file anything without getting the full facts from a lawyer.
