  • USC marries overstay

    I'm a US-born citizen engaged to a non-immigrant girl who has overstayed for several years now. She entered the states way back on a diplomatic visa which expired. She has been employed for 5 years at her company with no work permit.

    Questions when we marry:
    What do we need to apply for to get her green card?
    Does she have to go back to her home country to get the greencard?
    How much are the application fees?
    How long does it take to get approvals?
    What does the government forgive?
    What penalties/fines are there if any for her overstay?
    Will her current company be contacted and fined for employing her?
    What does EOD and stand for?

    Thanks

    What do we need to apply for to get her green card? Go to www.immigration.gov and look up "How do I adjust status in the United States". Read other posts here on AOS.

    Does she have to go back to her home country to get the greencard? NO! Do not depart. As an illegal alien from overstaying her visa, if she steps outside of the US border, she won't be back for 10 years without a waiver.

    How much are the application fees? See first answer. Most people end up forking out $500 to $1,000.

    How long does it take to get approvals? Depends on where you live. Expect a year or two.

    What does the government forgive? As a US citizen, they will forgive your wife's overstay and illegal employment.

    What penalties/fines are there if any for her overstay? See second answer.

    Will her current company be contacted and fined for employing her? They should be, but it is unlikely.

    What does EOD and stand for? End of day, similar to COB, close of business. EAD is employment authorization document, the work card.

      Be very carefull to take the suggestions you've got from grandpoohbahambag... etc. There is an exception to almost anything to a person who was in the U.S. on the basis of a diplomatic association (even born here, they are the great exception who can't have U.S. citizenship via that route). Everything that may apply to a "regular" overstay, may very well not to a person who was origianaly a diplomatic family member. You've got to research or talk to a well updated attorney! Good luck!

                    UK and US Companies are doing this type of business, this was a good business some time in 1988.

                    Diplomatic passports issued by any government, for his diplomat or family is always accompanied by the diplomatic note for US Visa. All US Embassy/Consulate do have the current listing of all Members of Staff that the type of visa they are issued, and validity of their stay in US.
