  1. Generally in the situation you have described we put "adjustment applicant"

  2. I agree with my colleague. However, you should consult an experienced immigration lawyer. You've got a lot of issues.


  3. I agree with my colleagues. Adjustment Applicant is a proper answer to that question.


  4. Include that you are an assylum applicant. Meet with an immigration attorney to assist with the Adjustment of Status. Based on what you have described, the validity of the marriage will be under scrutiny. Meet with an attorney who can review further facts of your case, your pending filing and your intended filing and provide you with some direction.
