I-539 Change of Status Approval from B-2 to F-1 for Indian Client in Cleveland Ohio
CASE: Change of Status from B-2 to F-2
LOCATION: Cleveland, OH
Our client came from India on a valid B-2 visa in April 2016. She came here to see her husband who was pursuing his studies in the United States as an F-1 student. Later, she decided to stay in the United States with his wife as F-2, a dependent of an F-1 visa holder. She filed her I-539 change of status application to the USCIS in September 2016. However, she received a Request for Evidence from the USCIS on January 18, 2017. She retained our office for the response to RFE for her case on January 26, 2017.
Once retained, we helped our client obtain supporting documents for the response to RFE. We prepared the response brief along with evidence to demonstrate that she has properly maintained her B-2 status, did not have intention to file F-2 when she first came, and why she wants to change her status from B-2 to F-2. We filed Response to RFE application along with supporting documents to USCIS on February 9, 2017. Eventually, on February 27, 2017, the Change of Status was approved. Our client is now on F-2 and can stay with her husband in the United States until his studies finishes.
