F1/OPT with approved I-130

#1
Hello,

i am currently on F1 with approved OPT. My 90 days of unemployment is next month. At the same time, my I-130 was approved last year and now I am waiting for a visa number to be allotted to me. In this situation, are there any options available for me to stay in US while I wait for the visa number or do I go back to my home country and wait for a visa number to be issued to me?

If you stay beyond your legally authorized stay you will be accruing unlawful presence in the country and that can affect your chance to get a green card. So you must leave now.

People who enter on F1 are admitted on Duration of Status which means they cannot start to accrue unlawful presence until there's a final ruling against them by an Immigration Judge.
