State/Country relating to question: Florida
Hello,my name is Judith. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions.Does your J1 have a 2 year home residency rule attached to it. t will be on the visa?Judith
i had J-1 for 3 mounth, after i changed it for tourist viza, and my tourist visa expired in 2010.i dont understand what does it mean:"2 years home residency rule", but on my j-1 viza sais:" Beareris not subject to sec 212(E) Two year rule does not apply russia"
Good that means you don't have to go home for 2 years before you can get a Green Card.Your bf cannot really do anything for you until he becomes a US citizen.If you marry and he files the I-130 now he is putting you at some risk because the USCIS knows you are here and her unlawfully and you could be subject to Deportation and they now where you are.Right now you have disappeared on them and you are only at risk if you are in the wrong place at the wrong time and get caught and questioned.But if you marry and he files then they know where you live.Once he has his Citizenship you can file for your adjustment of status here. The law makes an exception for the spouse of a US citizen to be able to file if they have gone out of status.Judith
