I came to visit my uncle on visitor visa and overstayed for 4 years, now I am married to a USC and I am filing to adjust my status , i have never been outside US since i came here and i have no intend to travel overseas, do i need to file I-131 form even it's free ? and what's the point of filing it with the other forms ?
I agree with the other posters that you do not need to file an I-131. Further, I discourage traveling if with an approved I-131 until after permanent residency ("Green Card") is granted. Whenever you travel there are risks that you could experience trouble at a port of entry in addition to risks that your travel could be seen as an abandonment of your application for permanent residency.
