Dear Customer ,

Thank You for posting your immigration law question today. I'm attorney Bill assisting you with your immigration matter.

If your wife is already in the US you still need to file the family based petition with USCIS.

https://www.uscis.gov/i-130

Once your application has been processed your wife can file an adjustment of status application.

This is determined by the filing dates with your local USCIS office set out in the priority dates.

If you are a US citizen her lack of status can be exempted under immigration laws, if she is out of status and you are a green card holder she is likely going to have to leave the US and come back through her consulate's office.

We are here to help so please follow up with me as required.

In return your positive rating is much appreciated.

I'm an independent legal expert and rely on your positive feedback today to get a credit for my time and answer to you.

You do this by rating 5*****, 4**** or better.

FIVE STARS or your rating is much appreciated in this regard.

Best

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.
