I my opt ran out on the 1st of January. I got married on the 30th of December and started working on filing my green card. I'm ready to submit it except for one part. It asks for my current status and when it expires on in the i485. Would I be F1 status and expires on the 1st of January or since it has recently expired would I be an adjustment of status applicant or something else? If so then what would the date be?
You are presently out of status with your status ending January 1.
Attorney Robert Brown's (former INS Director, 1972-99) reply to your question is general in nature, and does not constitute legal advice as all facts are known to him. For specific advice or representation you should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law. Mr. Brown's reply on AVVO does not create an attorney/client relationship not constitute legal advice.
The correct answer would be "failed to maintain lawful status".
The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
