I have not been selected for H1B and my OPT ends very soon. I have at least 7 more months (this is what the attorney says) to receive my new EAD card (via EB3 green card application). My husband is also on OPT, extendable for another two years or so.
I am seeking help regarding my situation in that 6-7 months:
I don’t have a valid Visa to re-enter the US but I am willing to visit home in that 6 months - would that have any effect on the green card application?
Can I apply for F2 in a US embassy in Mexico or Canada, and come back within my grace period (before getting a solid response on F2) OR should I change my status while in the US and apply for the Visa after that?
Is there any chance of F2 being rejected because I have started a green card application?
Thanks for sharing your insight!
