I was wondering if someone can provide clarity about F4 family category. I came to the US on F1 visa in 2009 and currently on OPT-Stem Extension. My OPT expires next year. I'm about to apply for the F4 visa category as my elder sister is a US citizen and i'm here legally;
1. Do i have to apply and wait in line for so many years till it becomes current? Is there a different approach?
2. Can i, alongside the application, also file form I-765 so I may be able to work while its being processed?
3. Can i also apply for change of status (I-485) with the application?
Thanking you for your response.
