B2 visa seeking residency

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am a widow came for a visit to USA on B1/2 visa, I have two USA citizen kids. Earlier I was on H4 status and now I am looking for change of status so that I can work and support my kids. I would like to know if there would be any special cases applied to me to change the status as I got two USA citizen kids. Please give me suggestions.

The fact that your children were born here will not help you at present. Discuss all the facts with a lawyer. Do you have family here? Was there ever an Immigration petition filed?

you cant do anything though your kids are US citizens. But there is one way you can change your status for now. try changing you status from B1/B2 to F1. you will need to enroll as a student.

A person can't just "enroll as student." The applications at universities take quite some time. Also, tuition for F1 is quite a lot. Further, an F1 is for studying, but the OP looked for a way to work.
