Free EB-5 Project Evaluation How might a pending I-526 Petition affect an application to change from F-1 to F-2 status?

The F-1 and F-2 Visas do not allow for immigrant intent, and so changing status to F-2 after an I-526 Petition has been filed may prove challenging. Immigration counsel should be consulted regarding the specific facts and timeline of the case to determine whether changing status might be a viable option, and if not, to discuss what other options may be available.
