I have filed the adjust of status through my employer based on EB3. Change of status was denied recently with the reason of not maintaining the non-immigration status (F1). I was in OPT when I was granted first TPS in 2015. I applied for the OPT extension and it was approved as well. After the completion of OPT (2017), I have been working under TPS and never admitted to school.
Recently my employer filed the I-485 and I attended the interview as well. After few months of interview, I received a denial for not lawfully maintaining F1 status. Have any one been in similar situation before? Have any one has approved i-485 from TPS? Is there any attorney that can help on this ?

@country_boy : There was no gap in employment. They denied with a reason that I didn't attend the class while I was in F1. I applied for one of the university for master after OPT ended and transfer the SEVIS. Later that university transfer my SEVIS back to prior university from where I graduated. They terminated SEVIS with not attending to class. Now, I485 is denied based on violation of non-immigrant status (F1).

@Mr p: My lawer said that I should file 601 but looks like is not possible in this case. I am still awatiing for other advice.

When u transfer your SEVIS and stop attending r u in TPS status that time? In my case I notified them that I have TPS and EAD so I will not be attending the class. Now with your situation I am worried.
Any body who was in F1 and started working on TPS what process you did before leaving F1 . Any input will be helpful .

Most of the students who decided to jump into TPS abandoning F1 status were either out of status or maintaining both status. For out of status folks who decided to do AOS were advised to re-enter US with TPS AP to avoid unlawful presence ( even thought it is not guaranteed) and many were able to adjust status according to the Nepali Lawyer Keshav Raj Sedhain. Talk to him but the taklu charge like $250 just for phone consultation,

If you were out of status for less than 180 days, you should be fine. Consular Processing should be another option (make sure with AP)

so the ppl who abandoned f1 status when they got TPS should go nepal and come back as a parole ? coz i know many ppl who abandoned f1 after they got tps and still got a GC via AOS without any problem. is Ktmboy85 just another rare case due to Uscis error?

@ktmboy85...Sorry to hear that .... at the time of filing one should be in status ... it Should've been possible to file based on TPS only ... what was your class of admissibility in i485 form? Were you solely inTPS while filing i485 and done with OPT? Did this transfer thing happen before your i485 was filed?

My h1 was approved with change of status from tps this year. At the time of filing tps on 2015...i also had stem opt which ended on 2016 summer. Since then i have worked on tps only till h1 approval. We were actually told adjustment of status is allowed from tps but were not sure abt h1b change of status. Must be a uscis error.

Ktmboy85- sorry to hear that.

Here is my case if it helps anyone:

Worked in OPT until August2015.
Started working in TPS- August 2015
April 2016- filed for reinstatement as I wanted to maintain my F1. Went to school and worked with TPS EAD.

2017- Went to Nepal and entered with AP. 2018-
Filed 485 with With TPS and F1 as current status.

In the interview I was asked how was I maintaining status since my visa was expired in 2014. I was able to show that I was both working and going to school after TPS. Gave them the recent i-20.

Case was approved same day.

 @Slazz11: class of admissibility in i485 form is DA. 
I was never been out of status before. I was granted TPS on 2015 and I was in OPT till 2017. Still not able to find out based on my F1 status why are they dening the AOS. On top of that my immigrantion lawyer, doesnot understand all these.

You said they terminated your SEVIS that means you were out of status briefly. But out of status period less than 180 days should no deny AOS.
