My parents came to the United States on Visitor Visa and while they were here, I filed for their I-131 + I485(through adjustment of status filing). Because of the I-485 filing, they have to stay here until they receive their Green card.
Now, during this waiting period, their B2 visa has expired. So all I have is their I-485 receipt on name or Proof of legal stay in the United States. Meanwhile, their passport from my home country is expiring soon and I am applying for a new passport and sending the application to the embassy here in the United States. Now, they are asking me for
proof of legal stay, which to me is the I-485 receipt. Now, I am worried that what if Indian Embassy does not understand(or respect) the I-485 receipt as proof of legal stay?
Now, I do have the following questions:
- Do my worries have a fair ground?
- If so, how do I convey it to the Indian embassy in the United States that I-485 is actually proof of legal status?
- Should I provide any documentation from the USCIS which clearly states that? If so, what should I present?
