Thread: Married and confused

  1. #1
    Hey guys so i have a crazy one.

    Married to a person who has been here since 2000, she is here on a TPS, she came on an airplane, but i believed the documents might have been falsified. there's a story about how she cames with a passport and then her parents sent it back to el salvador and she has been filing as EWI on all her TPS renewal papers. what is the most logical way to approach this situation. Ideally im trying to get her a US passport but we'll start at the beginning and working at the whole green card. Any feed back would be nice. =)

    To adjust status with TPS, it would depend on how she arrived and what her status is when she applied for TPS. If EWI, she would not be able to adjust status through marriage, unfortunately.

    TPS is a bit of a catch 22 situation. If EWI, she can't adjust status within the US and would have to return to El Salvador which then means she would get a 10yr ban on returning as she'd be considered an illegal for the past 9yrs.

    In that situation you will have to file for an I-601 waiver to get her back here after refusal for the EWI by the US Consulate or Embassy in El Salvador.

    Apply directly for citizenship. Just go to a post office and apply for a passport.

    The alien CAN adjust their status through marriage. The alien just cannot do it on usa soil. They have to return to country of origin to be able to acheive such by followint procedures of obtaining an immigrant visa.

    In most cases, the alien will face a ban due to illegal entry or overstay where the visa will be denied and must seek a waiver based on hardship to the usc spouse.

    This poster is in more serious trouble, as it appears that fraud was involved in obtaining a benefit. I strongly suggest you consult an immigration attorney and make sure he knows about the fraud to further advise you in case the details are uncovered by uscis.

    Was she inspected when she arrived in this country even without passport. If she has a prof that she was insected, she is ok to adjust here.
