  • F2 to F1 Visa Process suggestion Needed

    Hello everyone, My wife is on F2 Visa now, and she is opting for F1 visa and got admission from a ***** university. Can you tell me whether it is ok to apply the [B]change of status[/B] directly or is it better to hire an attorney.

    If it is better to apply individually can you please help me in what should be the reasons for the change of status? I have all the documents ready except the reasons.

        Statement of purpose, i.e, explaining her interests w.r.t the program, financial proofs, intent of going back to home country.

          Since your wife has the admission offer, so she can meet her international advisor and make sure you have checklist all the documents required (I20, Passport photocopy, etc) and the receipt of the SEVIS fee payment. Make a package and post it.

            And there's absolutely no need to hire an attorney. The visa status change will take atleast 6 weeks to max 4 months and you will be notified of it when its done. Good Luck!

                  You don't an attorney. I converted from f2 to f1 in the US only, applied on my own.

                    My opinion is contact someone who already did this process and succeeded. That's the first step as per my knowledge.
                    If everything goes fine it takes around 2 months as I heard.

                      My husband came to USA for PhD last fall, I got admission for this fall at the same uni and just got a status change. There is just two options - 1. contact her international officer and they will apply for a status change through usci( all the papers that is required in this case is something you would have by now for the purpose of admission) they will give a clear checklist.The problem is this process takes 4 to 6 months at least and once it is with the authority the university cannot do anything about it until it comes back.2.you go back to your home country and reapply for visa. I did number 2 as I badly wanted to start this fall and process 2 went faster. I did not have 4 to 6 months to wait for and defer my admission. with the federal govt shutdown you might not be very optimistic about a faster process, as things are already piling up. If you need to know any thing else such as what papers are required just nudge me. I just had status change this August- thats pretty recent
