Adjustment of status from H4 to GC

Recommended Posts

My wife is currently in the United States and holding H4 visa. Also, she is having EAD. My wife's sister is a US citizen and she has filed I-130 for my wife and waiting for the approval. When my wife can file adjustment of status (I-485) and is there any preference for beneficiaries who are already in the United States.

F4 Priority Date is in 2005. If your wife is here in15 years' time in legal status, she can file for AOS. Other than that hse has to maintain her own status till then.

In addition to what Pontevecchio said, if she can't maintain her status she has to leave the country and use  Consular Processing.
