I've been married to an American citizen for a year but I'm still on F-1 visa. We are going to apply for green card through marriage very soon, but I was wondering what happens to my F-1 visa status. My understanding is adjustment of status will change my F-1 status to green card holder but will I be an international student until I get actual green card or will my status change sooner in the process? Is that before or after the interview?
I agree with my colleague. You should consult an experienced immigration attorney for this matter. You may schedule a consultation with an immigration lawyer in your area, my firm is handling these matters in New York.
