My parents are "green card holder". We just got approved i-130 petition. I am currently in the us as a f-1 student, and my status has been legal since I entered in the us. I am over 21 unmarried. Can I file an I-485 or I have to file for immigration visa?
You will need to wait for your priority date to become current. Then you may apply to adjust your status with the I-485. You should contact a reputable immigration attorney (you can find one here on avvo) if you have questions about your status, or perhaps bridging any gaps in your status if you anticipate losing f-1 status at any time.
Best of Luck!
