Q: Can I apply for green card only with my b1/b2 visa without I-94 form?
I’ve been living in Texas since 2017, I went to high school here with a b1/b2 visa, my last entry was in 2021 but since the border was partially closed and only essential travelers were allowed I crossed and didn’t go back to Mexico anymore, I was living in McAllen however I then moved to Houston but due to the border being partially closed I crossed the checkpoint without the I-94 the only question I got asked was “where are you headed to”, my boyfriend of 4 years and I plan on getting married and we’ll file for my residency, do I have to go back to the city I was living in for him to petition me? Or can I stay here and do all the paperwork here even though I crossed the checkpoint without the proper documentation but I entered the country legally?
A: This is not an appropriate question to be answered on this forum. You need to do a paid consultation with an experienced immigration attorney because there are MANY things to discuss and many more facts needed. Best wishes!
A: It is evident that the type of legal issues you raise here cannot be addressed by anyone remotely without a comprehensive legal analysis of your eligibility for any immigration benefit sought by an experienced attorney. It is simply not possible.
A: A good question that needs more of an analysis. Did you get a stamp on your passport? Have you searched for an electronic I-94?
