I entered US under F1 student and now on OPT. Now that I am married to a US citizen, I was planning to apply for all the I-30, I-485, I-765, I-131 together. Honestly, for now the approval of I-765 is the most important to me as my current OPT will expire by next summer. I was about to prepare the docs while I noticed about Filing Charts from the Visa Bulletin. Does it apply also to my case being already in the US? If so, the dates are showing for October to apply by Dec 2018. That means I can only apply I-30, I -765, I-131 together now and I should wait for I -485 ?
Another question is, I have been living with my husband (my boyfriend at the time) for almost 3 months now. and we have just got married. Is there a minimum I should wait before filing to USCIS about either of marriage or proof of leaving together before or after the marriage? (someone told me 6 months is required but I couldnt find and evidence on that)
If you are married to a U.S. citizen , the Visa Bulletin is not applicable to an immediate relative petition.
In your case, there is no time restriction in filing your request for adjustment of status with USCIS.
The quota charts do not apply to marriage to a US citizen. You can file any time you wish. However, you should have extra evidence of the bona fides of the relationship since the marriage has not existed for very long.
The visa quota does not apply to immediate relatives of US citizens.
