Hello Guys, your input would be so much appreciated:
My sister entered the US lawfuly on Visitor Visa in May.
She applied for TPS for Syrians in June.
She met her current Fiance ( USC) in August
She converted to Christianity in September and filed for religious based asylum in October.
Her asylum was denied in November
Her I-94 expired but my TPS was still pending due I did not accrue unlawful presence
In January she received RFE ( request for further evidence) for her pending TPS. The deadline to respond is April 15.
Her then boyfriend of 8 months ( with whom she has been living since Aug) proposed to her at the same time. They are planning to get married in March after his exams are done.
She will be able to file her I-130 & I-485 before the deadline for her TPS's RFE. However, while she is waiting for her marriage based AOS, her TPS application will be denied.
Is she going to be put into removal procedure? or is the pending AOS going to protect her? Let's assume they will be successfully able to prove their bona fide marriage ( we expect her to be grilled with questions int he interview) Is there going to be anything else, they need to be aware of? Tnx For your kind assistance and insights!
If we do not hang together, we will all hang separately.
