I am a U.S. citizen, and I recently married a Canadian citizen who is here in TN status. We just filed her I-130 and I-485 cases concurrently. It now looks like her employer may shut down soon, so she would fall out of TN status. If that happens before the I-485 is approved, can she still remain in the U.S.?


Generally speaking, if an I-485 is timely filed, a person may remain in the U.S. in a period of authorized stay based on the pending I-485. (04.Dec.2019)
