I was here in the U.S on F1 student visa and I applied for adjustment of status while I was on F1 student visa. But I have violated immigration law in the past by overstaying and working. This is documented by the DHS and I have agreed to it. However, I was allowed to enter U.S on student visa. Will I be able to successful adjust status?
I have applied adjustment of status under F2A child category. I'm currently under 21 years of age. Yes the DHS knows my violations. it's already in there system due to secondary inspection. At that point of my inspection I was rejected to enter the U.S and I was told to get student visa. Than I took student visa and for the second time there system triggered and I was put into secondary inspection again and they checked my I-20 and told me to stay in status and I was able successfully enter U.S. Then I applied for Adjustment of Status while on F1 status.
