  • F1 vs F3 (family based immigration) - consequences

    hello,

    I need some advice on following issue:
    My brother will receive his greencard soon, as he is the son of American citizens. Hid petition was filed for as "unmarried son". Unfortunately, he got married to his girlfriend only 2 months before he entered the US the first time with his immigrant visa. He didn't state that he is now married.

    What will the consequences be? Is this "misreprentation during interview"? And if, what can he do now that he is already in the US?

    I do not quite remember whether he had his greencard before the marriage or after. Would this make a difference?

    Thanks for the advice!

        Since my brother is not yet staying within the US for longer than 180 days, is there still something he can do in order to "legalize" his status?
        E.g. leave US and file I601 from abroad? Or let INS know that he wasn't aware of this when he entered US? Anything that could possibly help?
