My sister filed an F4 for me which is pending, now I'm married to a U.S. Citizen and has two (2) kids living here in the U.S.. What is the next step for me? i-130?
I would strongly suggest that the next step you and your husband should take is to consult with an experienced immigration attorney near you to find out what options are available. An experienced immigration attorney should be able to advise you as to whether you can apply to get your residence without leaving the U.S., or if you will have to apply through the U.S. consulate in your home country. There are many facts which need to be discussed and reviewed in order to give you the correct advice, and a public forum like AVVO would not be the right way to do so. Find an experienced immigration attorney near you, and make an appointment for a consultation at your earliest convenience.
This answer is of a general nature and should not be relied upon as final, nor is it intended as legal advice. A consultation with an experienced attorney is always the best way to go.
