Matter of Arrabally is not applicable to my case.
I was J1(without 2 year rule) -B2 - F1 - OPT student with work permit/DS valid until sept 24,2012.
On Sept 7,2012 my wife us-citizen applied for me i-130,i-485... (Priority date Sept 11, 2012)
On Nov 9,2012 I received work permit and Advance Parole.
On Feb 2013 I traveled outside of US for 7 days.
On March18,2013 I had immig interview, where my I-130 was approved, but I-485 was sent to court with note Arrabally on it (were it will be on hold with other cases. ), because of my travel while being out of status since Sept 2012, as officer said. I've never been unlawfully present in US: constantly attended school while on F-1, graduated, worked with work permit in the field related to my degree. Is it officer's mistake? What should i do now?
