Did you recently fail to maintain your F1 visa status or are worried that you are in danger of doing so? Do you want to continue studying in the United States and want to know what your options are? We understand how frustrating and stressful this time can be. What we can tell you is that we’ve helped many who are in the exact position you are now to be able to reinstate their F1 visa so that they can continue pursuing their education. An F1 visa reinstatement lawyer from the Rijal Law Firm can help in a variety of ways. Below are some questions we’re often asked.
What Can Cause Me to Lose My F1 Visa Status?
There are multiple ways that an F1 student may fall out of status. One of the most common is that the student fails to attend the academic institution whose I-20 they used to receive their F1 visa in the first place. Alternatively, many students do not maintain a full course load without clearing it properly with the authorities ahead of time. It could also be that the student didn’t extend their I-20 before the expiration date, as well as other reasons. If yours has expired or is in danger of expiring, we recommend you reach out to us to see how we could potentially help.
How Do I Know if I Qualify for Reinstatement?
If you want to continue studying in the United States, it’s our advice that you contact an experienced F1 visa reinstatement attorney as quickly as possible. That’s for many reasons, not the least of which is that the USCIS is more likely to consider your request if you haven’t been out of status for more than five months (barring unique circumstances). It can also help if you were never unlawfully employed in America and can demonstrate that it was due to circumstances beyond your control that your status was violated. As you might imagine, every case is different. We’re glad to sit down with you for a free consultation.
