Is it possible to apply and get GC after <180 days of unlawful presence?

Recommended Posts



Is it possible to apply and get GC after accrued an unlawful presence (<180days)?

If one had applied for COS while on a valid visa but USCIS still had the case pending and then asked for RFE and gave FINAL decision of denying the COS after four months of visa expiration (waited in the US ONLY because the final case was pending) – then the unlawful presence starts the day after the final decision reached by the USCIS – right?

If the above condition is true then the total unlawful presence would be a couple of weeks (spent in preparation for departure). Would it be held against the applicant?

Is it possible to apply and obtain GC? What are the questions or difficulties one should anticipate in such scenario?

Thanks for your input
