I hope you guys are all doing well and remain safe!
I recently found out that I would be able to adjust my status through my mother (green card holder).
I am eligible for the 245i. My aunt (USC) filed for my dad in 2001. The case had a priority date of March 26, 2001, a receipt date of April 5, 2001 (which I assume is when the petition was received by USCIS?). The I-130 petition was approved in March 2003 but it ended up being denied all the way at the end due to NSEERS.
I just wanted to ask the community on what forms I should be filling out. Based on my research, I should be ONLY be filling out the I-130 form? I would be able to go through the AOS process once the priority date becomes current which would be 5-6 years from now?
I'm only planning on submitting the following documents along with the I-130 form:
1. Birth Certificate (petitioner child)
2. Marriage Certificate of father evidencing marriage to beneficiary’s mother, with translation
3. Evidence of petitioner’s status as Permanent Resident (i.e. Naturalization Certification, Passport, Birth Certificate)
Do you guys know if I will need to submit documentation AT THIS time regarding my 245i eligibility or any other documentation? It's my understanding that the 245i eligibility documentation would be submitted when the priority becomes current as part of the AOS?
I did read the AOS thread on here but it seems like the vast majority of those are related to marriage where the priority date is current and there's no need for 245i. Thank you all for reading!
At this stage you only submit what you listed, the purpose of I-130 is only to prove relationship between the petitioner and beneficiary, the issues of admissibility and 245(i) are not relevant until your priority date becomes current and its time to file I-485.
