My wife is from Germany. Let me just start by saying, it’s a shame what they do to non US citizens when it comes to school. She’s in nursing school and pays 5-6X as much than an American citizen. With that being said we got married in September of 2019. We have filled out all the paperwork required... here’s where we stand: I-130 - submitted and approved I-485 - submitted receipt number received and in process. (Who knows how long this will take with COVID.)
I forget the other forms but essentially it’s for working and traveling. Those are both in process as well.
We are trying to figure out if she is eligible for in state tuition in NEVADA. She has lived her for 5 years and we can for sure prove that she’s been here using bills etc.. my question is does the approved I-130 and processing I-485 grant her eligibility to receive in state tuition?
Thank you for the help. Finding out the laws on this stuff is quite the chore. I never realized how hard it is for someone not from America to be here until I married her. It’s a broken system that needs some work IMO.
