Belle Posted April 4, 2011 Report Share Posted April 4, 2011 "I know that we were not illegal and my family has never been illegal because at the time that we applied because I remember seeing my visa and it was supposed to end in 03 I think but it got terminated because we applied." You should talk to an attorney about it. I would not risk being banned from the country for 10 years based on a vague childhood memory. Again, visa itself has nothing to do with it. What matters if whether your I-94 expired when you filed I-485 (then you were in illegal presence with some rare exceptions). It is possible that you were legally present on your priority date (when LC was filed in 2001) but that changed before your I-485 was filed, which probably took at least a couple more years to file. Bottom line - you need a lawyer to look at your documents. One giveaway is Supplement A you may have had to submit with your I-485 petition, with an additional $1,000 fee. That means you were using 245i. Link to comment
