I am currently on my STEM OPT which expires in June 2021. My girlfriend came to visit me on B2 visa and I would love her to stay with me in US till then. I have been told that she could apply for a change of status to F-2 as long as we were married and if my college provided F-2 I-20. My salary would easily cover our stay financially.
Does anyone know if this procedure can be successful? Will we need to file for a B2 extension to “bridge the gap” of being out of B2 status while COS application is pending?
Please help me as I can’t find any answers online.
