    I missed this one yesterday, Mary. Old, tired eyes ...

    First of all, they need to get married. She can't sponsor him any other way.

    After that, it depends how he entered the US. If he came on a valid visa, then he would most likely be eligible to adjust. If he entered without inspection, he must go back to his home country for Consular Processing - it can't be avoided. Because he got hit with an entry bar when he left the US, he'll be denied and they'll have to file an I-601 waiver.

    Baby steps for now though til we know more ... file the marriage license, have the wedding, then file an I-30.

    In that case, he's eligible for an adjustment of status (barring any extenuating circumstances of course). After the marriage, they need to file an I-130 and the I-485 package.
