Adjustment of Status: We are applying for an adjustment of
We are applying for an adjustment of Status for my parent-in-law. They are on a B-2 Visa. We expected them to get a 6 month stay, but when they came into the country they were given only 3 months due to coming in for 6 months at a time a couple of times with 3 or 4 month breaks between helping us with out toddler. My wife(US Citizen) is currently pregnant and she is due on January. They got no-aos/no-eos written on their passport. We are deciding on either filling the paperwork next week before the end of stay ends on December 15th(91 days after their entrance on Sept 15) or on waiting until after January to file. We have talked with one attorney and she suggests to wait until after January but not sure if she has experience in this situation as she hasnt even seen a no -aos no eos written on the passport and she is worried about the unknown implementation of the new 90 day rule. I also dont know if this will be applied to our parents or not as they are immediate relatives. … read more
