How does an EB-5 investor's family member adjust their status after I-526 approval?
My mom applied for EB-5 and submitted form I-526 earlier this year. My father and I are also on the application. I am a student on F-1 status, and I would like to know what the process is after the approval of the I-526. Do I have to leave the United States to go back to my home country if my parents were to go through the consular process to obtain their green cards? If not, can I apply for the I-485 while my parents use the consular process back home? What are the forms that my mom needs to complete before I can submit my I-485 application?
The parents can proceed with the U.S.consulate in order to obtain there conditional permanent residency visas. Concurrently, you can file for adjustment to conditional permanent residency while in the U.S. and you are maintaining legal F-1 status in the U.S.
