I don't have the money to pay lawyers (the ones I saw quoted me $4K and $5k). Both however reassured me that it was an easy process due to my entering legally into the US and being from Canada (as opposed to someone from, say, Mexico or Middle East I assume). I don't have a criminal record in either country and neither does my wife who is born and lived in the US her entire life. I have never worked illegally, though I have sold some items on eBay.
So I want to know what do I have to do to gain legal status here in the US now that I am married to my American wife.
I've done a little bit of research and it looks like I might need an adjustment of status. Not sure if this is correct.
I understand that there are some people who work in law offices such as a clerk or a temp that offer to help guide you in the proper direction as long as you do the work for a minimal fee. If such a thing exists, are there any in the Los Angeles area?
