Quiero obtener mi visa F-1 para estudiar pero quiero salirme de mi programa de intercambio au pair, mi preguntas son:
1. ¿Cuanto se demora el proceso de cambio de status?
2. Si empiezo el proceso de cambio puedo terminar inmediatamente mi contrato con la agencia con la cual vine?
3. Puedo correr el riesgo de devolverme a mi pais?
Immigration Lawyer: Jen Marie, Esq., Immigration Attorney replied 8 months ago

1. El proceso se puede demorar varios meses.

2. Aunque empiezes el proeso y mandes la palicacion I-539 para cambiar de estatus, igual tienes que mantener tu J-1y no terminar tu contrato hasta 30 dias antes de la fecha que dice en tu I-20 que empieza tu programa

3. Mientras que lo hagas bien como te dije en el #2 no te tienes que ir. Si quieres terminar el contrato, mejor que salgas del pais aplicar para F-1 en la embajada Americana.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
