  • Illegal who's been in the US since February 2001

    I have a question about the appropriate way to proceed to "legalize" an illegal's status. I have met and plan to marry someone who has been in the United States illegally since February 2001. We would like to marry and get him resident status. Is this possible? What kind of documentation would be required in this case? Any advice is appreciated. thank you.

      First, and this is very important...try to find out if the one you're marrying truly loves you and not just to legalize the stay.

        Thanks for that advice. I appreciate it. We actually met over a year ago and I knew from the start his situation. We both feel it's very important to have everything straightened out for our future.

          Yeah, that's it................................!



          Anyways, Caliborn, did your fiance(e) entered the US legally?

            Thanks mpodcsin - no he didn't enter legally. That's the biggest problem.

              Having just met over a year ago is to me too short a period to know one another. While I don't want to be judgmental, many aliens now use this "romantic love" strategy to get their wish of legalizing their stay. And then, poor US citizens like you are dumped like trash once they get their papers worked out. Believe me, the number of such people is alarming...almost 50% end up getting divorce after becoming legal.

                I guess another village has misplaced their resident idiot.....yet another example of some dodo marrying an illegal, believing that the illegal is really in love...sure.....take away any chance of a green card and you would see true love vanish.

                  If Caliborn's fiance(e) was marrying ONLY to get LPR, he/she would have known exactly what to do, because ill thoughts like such only come to those people mind, who have known successful examples of fake marriages.

                  Anyways, Caliborn, if your fiance(e) entered the US without
                  inspection at the POE, then it depends on the circumstances. The best thing to do is consult an IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY AT LAW.

                    Actually, the divorce rate is almost 70%- and more than half of those end up marrying (or in some cases) re-marrying their original spouse!!! A word to the wise...(of course, if any of these illegal alien lovers were wise, they wouldn't marry these leeching, greencard-seeking scumbags)

                      If she entered illegally, how sure are you that she will let you enter her on the wedding night...unless you also enter her illegally.

                        If this person entered with a proper visa and overstayed (no c1 or twov entries), AOS is a possibility and the process could take anywhere from 6 months to a year or so.
                        If the person entered without inspection, AOS is not an option and you should retain an experienced attorney in order to get qualified advice. This is NOT legal advice, contact an attorney if you need legal help.

                          When you are in relationship with someone, you can always tell if that someone has good intentions (REGARDLESS of that person's immigration status, of course) by the way YOU feel.

                          If you feel completely happy and enjoying every moment of your life then the relationship is real. And if you want to get married, get married and you might live happy ever after, if you put effort into it.

                          If you don't feel COMPLETELY happy, not enjoying BEING yourself, then that someone is not into you. And then if you STILL want to get married, get married, but it will not last ever after, no matter how much effort you put into it.

                              Well, one can test that person. Let's say he tells her sorry I can't sponsor you...do you still love me? Let's see what happens...
