I have a question regarding my legal status in US and the possibility to apply for work permit. Hopefully you can clear a couple of things for me.
I entered US with a B-2 visa couple of months ago and got married with my girlfriend, who is a green card holder (due to traveling she is not eligible for citizenship in a couple of years) as we just recently had a baby together (he was born in US, so he is an US citizsen). Since I would like to move together with my family here in US after our marriage, I am looking into possibilities getting authorization for work.
Basically we have come to the conclusion that the best option out there for me would be to go for a spouse-sponsored petition for alien relative (I-130), but we have not fully understood whether I could concurrently apply for status adjustment (I-485) and thus be eligible to file in application for employment authorization (EAD, I-765) or will I have to wait until visa numbers will be available for me (probably in 2009)? And if the latter applies, what would you suggest instead to be able to start working as soon as possible (exept for H-1B)?
Thank you very much in advance,
