Can my student visa be canceled during the process of securing a US Green Card through marriage?
My wife (who’s a US citizen by birth) and I got married earlier this year (I’m in the US on a F-1 type Student Visa). We submitted to immigration all the required documents for the application of the American Green Card through marriage in early July. Below are the documents I’ve received from immigration as of today:
- Receipt for payment of I-485
- Receipt for payment of I-130
- Biometrics appointment schedule for next week
My classes are set to kick off at the end of August and I thought it would be a waste of cash if I started paying for my tuition as a non-US student (as well as international student insurance) if my Green Card application will be ready within the next six months. Right now, my greatest concern is that if I fail to pay, my college will most likely cancel my current F-1 Visa.
Could this cause me any problem in my Green Card application process?
Answer: Don’t worry, as long as you’re certain of your marriage to your American wife, then there is nothing to worry about with your F-1 visa status. Indeed, the good news is that you can even start planning on the next good use for the money you’re going to save here!
