Todays date is Aug-24th
The school closes their registration on the 14th of September, at which time I presume the international office will report to the USCIS that I am out of status.
from research I found that as long as I have not lived for over 181 days in the US as an out of status, I am free to file for the required forms such as the I-130, I-485.
the source is 3 years old [http://www.avvo.com/legal-answers/out-of-status-f1-student-getting-married-need-help-215111.html] and I am worried that it may be outdated.
to put time into perspective:
Heres the problem, we want to report our marriage within a few days, in 3 weeks I will be declared out of status, and I am worried that I'll be deported before the results come out....
thank you, i love this forum
