I Stopped going to school 2 years ago, then after 4-5 month immigration authorities were at my house at 6 am looking for me they had my picture, name etc... However i was not at home at that time so they left. Then i moved out to different place. Now I am married to USC and have baby together and Planning to fill out all the paperwork for AOS. But i am trying to figure out if I am in removal proceeding or not. How do I know that? As far as i understood no one can adjust status while in removal proceeding. Since ICE officers came to my doorstep ( 2 years ago) looking for me i think i am in removal proceeding but no NTA was served and i didnt receive it by Mail as well. Also US Immigration law says "out of status" is forgiven if person doing AOS through marriage to USC. Can anyone help me?
Based upon these facts it would appear that you were never served with a Notice to Appear and are therefore not in removal proceedings and eligible for adjustment of status. Of course, by your own admission, you evaded ICE after you found out the agency was looking for you. Thus, documents could have been sent to your old address. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review the facts of your case and advise you how best to proceed.
