What will happen regarding unauthorized employment after my adjustment of status has been filed?
Question Details: I am on an F-1 student visa but recently got married to my long time girlfriend who is a U.S. citizen. I filed for AOS 4 months ago. However, I have engaged in unauthorized employment by accepting an internship that started last week and runs for anther 3 months or so, less than a 180 days. Prior to filing for my AOS and EAD I had been in legal status with a clean record. I was hoping I would receive my EAD before my internship started. This internship is a great opportunity I couldn't turn down the experience as my field of study is very competitive and experience based. I intend to stop working immediately after the internship ends. I would like to know if my AOS application could be denied based on my brief violation or are there any legal options that are available to me?
If you are adjusting status on the basis of marriage to a US citizen, any prior unauthorized employment is forgiven so you do not need to worry about it and even if asked, you can safely disclose that you worked because it will be forgiven.
