Thread: Need advice

    I came to USA in 95 on F-1 visa and after completion of my degree, I over stayed and didn't return to my country.. I didn't even file for any change of status and didn't want to marry some USC for immigration purpose only.
    Now i have found someone to spend my life with and she is a greencard holder and also willing to file for me.
    Now my question is what should i do, what forms should we submit or should i talk to an immigration attorney??

    Thanks Davdah for your prompt response, can we go ahead and marry now? and file later on when she becomes citizen?

    Hi Yatagan,

    Nothing is preventing you from getting married, but Davdah is right. If you overstayed your visa, only a USC can help you get your status straightened out. How long before she can file for citizenship?

    Anyone can marry a green card holder to obtain permanent residence status. The difference between marrying a green card holder and a US citizen is that filing an AOS with a permanent residence takes longer. The up side is you are able to obtain a work permit for as long as it takes and and not be out-of-status. Also, as soon as the permanent residence becomes a citizen, your petition is put on a fast track (just make sure you notify USCIS to do that if they don't catch it themselves or early enough). I'm not sure what immigration books some people with responses here are reading.
