Hi, I've received and email from NVC where is said my case is being processed by NVC and I need to pay fees, fill forms like I-260, etc. follow the instructions. Currently I'm in US, entered by tourist visa. (Did not overstayed).
1. Does this mean that now I don't need to leave US even if my 6 months stay will end?
2. After sending everything to NVC, while my case will be processing can I get a work permit for US?
Based on your set of facts you will have to leave the U.S. to process your application.
The email from the NVC to pay fees is the next step in the process after which you will have to provide necessary documentation and then you will be scheduled for a medical & interview at the U.S. embassy in your country of origin.
For you to adjust status while in the US your spouse must be s US citizen which unfortunately she is not at this time,
In essence follow the instruction on GE email and leave the us before your current I94 expires. And prepare for the interview at the U.S. embassy.
You absolutely need to consult an attorney because if you make the wrong move now you might have to nearly start over and process in the United States from the beginning as an adjustment of status. There are very important questions that need to be answered, such as when you arrived, under what circumstances, and the timing of your visa application. Do you intend to leave and finish processing in your home country or you wish to finish processing here?
In order to complete the consular processing you will need to leave the United States. No you cannot get a work until after you re-enter as a resident.
The answer provided here is general in nature and does not take into account other factors that may need to be reviewed for a more precise answer. You should consult with an immigration attorney before taking any action. The answer here is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship.
You did not provide sufficient information to determine how or why your case is at the NVC. Also, the filing of documents with the NVC does not authorize you to receive an employment authorization document. You seem confused and you should consult with a qualified immigration attorney.
To continue with the NVC process you will need to leave the country and re-enter after your immigration visa application is granted. Adjustment of status happens without the NVC. Consult with an attorney.
