    Once you file these papers, you will get receipts from USCIS with corresponding receipt number (like a case number).
    It doesn't matter if his dad is in status when he files. There is no monetary or any other penalty even if his dad has overstayed for years before filing I-485.

    I am a USC and filing concurrent I485 & petition I-130 for my father's green card. However I am unable to meet the minimum income requirement as I am a student. My father has placed 5x cash into my bank account which my attorney still sees it will not fly as there needs to be a joint sponsor with some income. Anyone can suggest where to find a joint sponsor as I have no relatives or friends in USA ? I am ready to pay any fees for the joint sponsor if required....please help

    Hi Akki!

    I'm planning to sponsor for my parents GC next time they visit me as well. I was wondering if you had to to submit any documents to prove that your dad did not come to US with the intention of getting a GC (i.e doctor's notes etc..)? Thank you so much!

    well.. all of sudden, my dad an interview call for 1-485, they verify all the information on his 1-485. They were not able to ready his fingerprints therefore they asked us to get police certificate. It took 2 hours to get the certificate, went back to USCIS and IO congratulate him and said your application as been approved and you will get your GC in mail. Good luck to everyone!!!

    All this process took 5 months.

    May 3rd 2019: Mail Documents
    May 8th: Notification for documents received.
    May 21st: Biometric notification for June 7th
    June 21st: Biometric notification for July 6th (as they were not able to capture biometric)
    Sept 16th: Interview for i-485 scheduled for Sept 17th (Got lucky, received the letter just a day earlier)
    Sept 17th: Interview cleared, IO asked us to provide police certificates as they were not able to collect his fingerprint twice. Had to go to police office to get one. They provide in the same day.. IO give us a letter stating that you application has been recommended for approval. IO said you will get your GC within a month.

    We are still waiting for his AP. Looks like we will get it by October or November. It’s showing that they are working on cases who applied in April 2019 and I did in May 2019. Well may dad has B2 visa since February 2016. I must say wait at least 90 days before you apply for your parents. You don’t need a lawyer just call Uscis helpline and ask for the forms. It’s very easy. Let me know if you need my help. You may need the following forms. I-485,I-130,I-131 and I-765.

    Hi Akki....just wanted to check if your father has received his EAD and AP by now ? I am filing I485 for my parents too who are on B2 visa from last month. Do we have to wait for 90 days for filing or can be done immediate ? Do we need a lawyer for filing ? I am in Dallas ...any good lawyer you may suggest for filing GC for parents ?

    The AP may take 5-6 months to get these days. So it is very unlikely he will get it before he plans to leave.

    If he gets the AP he can travel but I doubt he will get it. Most of the time, they finish the GC process and don't issue EAD or AP for parents of US citizens.

    The only way he should travel abroad is with AP or GC.

    He cannot leave the US while his I-485 is pending unless he has been granted Advance Parole before he leaves, or else his I-485 (Adjustment of Status) will be automatically abandoned, and he will need to do Consular Processing abroad.

    Most I94 now are in electronic form, you have to visit https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/ to get your latest I94 after arriving to the USA (it can take a couple of days for the information to show up).

    INA Section 245(i) information: https://www.uscis.gov/greencard/life...45i-adjustment
    Most cases will answer No to that.
