I am a U.S. citizen and my father came here to the U.S. on a 6 month visitor visa. While here in the U.S., I have petitioned and already sent the required forms- (I-130, I-485, I-765)- to adjust his status to permanent resident. USCIS has already received and sent me confirmation numbers. My question is: Is he required to leave and exit the U.S or can he stay here while awaiting decision on his case to be granted adjustment to permanent residency? Thank you.
