Thread: Immigration by marriage - some questions

  1. #1
    I will be marrying an illegal alien in the fall and am wondering on the timeline of everything. From my research I understand the following:

    I or my husband to be files various forms such as adjustment of status, I-130, biographic info, medical, affidevit of support and work authorization. Then we wait to hear from USIS.

    How long will it be then for the following on average?

    1. work authorization
    2. Our interview
    3. To get his greencard
    4. To get travel authorization

    Are there any steps I have missed out?

    We live in Los Angeles, CA

    If he came in as a VWP alien, he may not be allowed to adjust his status on US soil.

    yes he will actually, doesn't matter visa waiver or not, he entered legally on a valid visa and he overstayed, if he marry a u.s citizen they goverment will forget about the overstaying part and he will be able to adjust under the 245I .
    littlesthobo u guys have to get married as sson as possible and then u will have to file the i-130 and I-485 and evidence, I-765, I-131, and G32FA for u and one for him , he will be able to adjust without leaving the country , if he leaves now he will be banned for 10 or more.
