Los Angeles, CA asked in Immigration Law for California

Q: I’m a F1 holder can I dropped school since I married a US citizen??

I’m f1 holding since Setember 2017 (esl), I got married with a American citizen in October 2018. Can I stop go to school? I’m about to send papers, but I’ll not be able to pay for school anymore, once I’ll have taxes and lawyer pay. I’m really concern about that once I’ve been doing everything to keep my status legal.

(I had a month of vacation and my new i20 started on January 28th.)

A: If you are eligible for adjustment of status, once you file the application you are legal to remain in the U.S. and may receive temporary employment authorization. I suggest consulting with an immigration attorney who can fully analyze your case prior to submitting anything to USCIS.
