Am sorry is not possible. Is not possible to adjust from one class of non-immigrant visa to the other, adjustment is only possible when adjusting from non-immigrant to immigrant visa. So you have to come back to Nigeria to apply for your F1 visa.

Yes it is.

You can adjust from one nin immigrant to another. People do it all the time. F1 to H1, F1 to B1/B2, J1 to F1, B1/B2 to J2.

Is it easier? I really don't know (For some nationality, it is.)

Yes, you can. You need to prove beyond reasonable doubt why you don't need to go back to Nigeria to apply. It is easier through a lawyer. People have done it on their own. Personally, i will recommend you go back to nigeria and apply.
Regardless of what people say, always follow your guts.
Its more difficult to convince the USCIS that returning to your country to apply will pose social,religious, sexual discrimination including political crisis (war, eg: syria). Besides how many can afford the legal fee.

You have two options

Your best bet is to get the k1 visa before getting married. She needs to file the Form on your behalf. Once approved, you can then apply for the K1 visa. The k1 visa is what you will come to the US with. It allows you to finish the other processes of obtaining prrmanent residency in the US.


Thr other option is being married to your fiancee thrn she files the alien petition for your permanent residency.

Both option will disqualify you automatically from getting a visit visa. However, the first option is faster than the other (3 to 6 months of being in the US whike the 2nd is 6month to 2years).

There is nothing to the green card interview. It is simply to ascertain the truthfulness of all information provided in your application. If you have nothing to hide, you don't need anyone's experience. They will always differ.

Boss BlowJobs... You said something about your dad coming for the wedding, you didn't say anything about him again. How was his journey to and fro?
Re: Getting A Green Card By Adjustment Of Status: My Yankee Experience by BlowJobs: 10:17am On Dec 09
I am glad the week is over.
I had a rough 2 weeks now. Everything seems to be going back to normal. I finished the week being "unemployed". I got a speeding ticket ($186) and accidentally locked myself outside in the cold yesterday. I had to wait for my wife to get home (from 6:30pm till 11:00pm). It wasn't a nice experience. But i survived.

So, i am officially back to posting here

it is suppose to snow today. Am i excited? No. Cos it has been really cold for some days now and i really fear how coming weeks will be. I know for sure it will be beautiful. I just can't stand the cold
Re: Getting A Green Card By Adjustment Of Status: My Yankee Experience by BlowJobs: 10:21am On Dec 09
For the Adjustment of status, We filled out all the forms and have all supporting documents.

So by the 2nd week in January, we will be mailing out the Forms with the fees

If i wasn't married to a USC, i will have 30days (from Wednesday, 6th ) to leave the US. It is called the 30 day grace after a permit expires.

But now that i am married to a USC, it isn't gonna be counted against me.

Thank you. I do appreciate

I thought about blogging (not about Adjustment of status though). I am a tech enthusiast. Maybe blog about Technology and West-Africa. But i also can be really lazy about writing grin.

I still have "jobs" i can't just talk about it since my permit expires. Today, i'll be shoveling snow for 25$ an hour (if it eventually snowed) grin grin. When it comes to making money, trust me, i don't sit around grin
