hello amazon i am new here like the forum alot of good info
ive a few challenging questions.. i hope you could get me an answer for some of the
my case is a bit long so i tried to do it short as possible.
my name is kel i am israeli citizen.
my date of birth 11/28/88
its starts while my dad(bora-green card holder at that time) apply i130 petition for me on 8/25/09
i130 aproved on 9/20/10 under FB2A CSPA (i130 filed 8/25/09)
i485 filed on 9/7/10and i765 for EAD on same time(VB was1/1/10)
ASC appt for i485 and i765 on 11/1/2010
Interview appt at USCIS on1/11/11(VB back to 1/1/08 under FB2A)
--and then i got notice of file transfer to NBC on 6/17/11
On 2/11/11 bora(patitioner) naturalizaed
On 8/17/11(lawyer) advice NBC :(patitioner)naturalizaed
I have to say that all this time i was under F1 status and im still maintain F1 since it was aprove on 10/3/08(transfer schools)
(Enter to US with B2 at 5/26/08 and applying COS to F1 on 7/25/08) for now ive my F1 keep going to school and (renew EADs since 9/20/2010 untill now)
my questions is:
-if i can drop the F1 status and stay on i485 TSP?
-if i485 denied for any reason can i apply for any other visas?
-if i keep F1 and in some point while waiting to PD, 485 is denied. can i file COS to E1/2 or H1 while im in the US (if i meet the requirements for the status)?
-anther question: can i get OPT from school if ive i485 pending?
thank you so much sorry if a bit long :)
When you are in I-485 pending, you are no longer in F-1 status.
When your I-485 is denied, you will lose your F-1 status, no way to stay in US legally.
If your I-485 is denied, maybe you are out of status (F1) so once out of status, you are not eligible to Adjustment status.
my lawyer told me that i can keep my F1 student status, and my i485 at the same time..
so im a bit confused [bored]
I wonder why now you still dont have a Green card since you file I-485 on 9/7/10. Why this case takes too long time.

my dad was naturalized so it moves me from F2a category to F1
so now im child of us citizen
Many lawyers are conflicted on this. Some say applicant can retain F1 status after filing I-485. Some say that you no longer have the F1 status after filing I-485.
What about applying for v status?
I am assuming you mean V visa. For this visa, you have to file I-130 before December 21, 2000. Most people have filed their application after that date.
