    OPT Application while on Pending Asylum EAD on hand

    Of course you can use the asylum based EAD card to work while still in school, no one is saying that is not allowed. However, I suggest you go back and ask your lawyer what your status will be once you use that EAD to work. You can also read what some lawyers on AVVO have to say about this by...

    OPT Application while on Pending Asylum EAD on hand

    You remain in F1 status for as long as you do not use the asylum based EAD card to work. Once you use an asylum based EAD card for employment, your status becomes asylum pending, and yes you can remain in school but you’re no longer in F1 status.

    OPT Application while on Pending Asylum EAD on hand

    Technically speaking, they are out of status regardless of if terminated in SEVIS or not. What they’ve engaged in is fraudulent. This forum does not tolerate encouraging people to engage in fraudulent activities for the purpose of obtaining an immigration benefit.

    OPT Application while on Pending Asylum EAD on hand

    Ask those people if they disclosed this violation to their school in the first place. They got away with a violation of their NIV status. It doesn’t mean what they did is right or that they were still in a legal valid status.

    OPT Application while on Pending Asylum EAD on hand

    @tinaina is correct. OP no longer has a valid F1 status if they’ve used an asylum based EAD to take up employment. Not being terminated in SEVIS (because the school is not aware of this violation) does not mean OP is maintaining his non immigrant status.

    DV 2019 AOS Only

    If your husband is listed on your asylum petition as your derivative, then the answer should have been “Yes” regardless of who the main. Your husband should have answered by saying he’s a derivative on your asylum petition. Sorry your DV based AOS petition has been denied.

    1. A non submitted form will not count as a demonstrated immigrant intent of processing AOS. 2. See 1 above. Your call though if you should change to CP. 3. You can indicate “Present”, “Ongoing”, or something similar in that section.

    That profile is now banned from the forum - was previously warned to not use this forum for marketing purpose.

    1. What is normal for one FO may not be normal for another. The most important thing is you’ve received your IL, whether the template used is normal or not is immaterial IMO. 2. Be sure to show up for the new bio appointment. The 2nd bio notice could be due to a system error; it could be due to...

    DV 2019 AOS Only

    1. KCC’s response (which they’ve been giving for a while now) is not correct. You don’t call USCIS to schedule an interview, your FO will do the scheduling on their own. 2. You can call USCIS. You should also take a look at the timeline spreadsheets to get an idea of how long it takes your FO...

    I think you need to stop all the unnecessary commotion and atmosphere of fear your last couple of posts are creating in the forum. I honestly don’t know if you’re doing this intentionally or it’s simply a case of you not quite understanding the process but trying to help with your limited...

    Stop posting AOS related questions on a none AOS threads! I cautioned you against doing so a while back, @Xarthisius told you the same thing on another thread. You apologize each time, only for you to do so again. You are causing confusion for non-AOSers when you post AOS related questions on a...

    There are currently non immigrants in the US, both legal and illegal who have or are finding loopholes in the system making it possible to avail themselves of public services/assistance they do not qualify to use or receive. There are also those currently outside the US but were previously in...

    USCIS released a DRAFT version of this form back in September 2018. There’s no official usable version that I know of. So can you share a link to the version you’re referring to?

    DS260 submission, DV administrative fee payment, AOS package submission all constitutes demonstration of immigrant intent. In view of the current administration’s attitude towards immigration in general, I already recommended waiting at least 90 days (following an international trip) before...
