Get your USC. Marry her and have her adjust status!

If you are not a USC it will take much longer. She would have to go back to her country in order for you to file for her

2) she would need to get a waiver for that overstay because she might get a 10 year ban

3) It takes much longer for green card petition compare to USC, if she goes back you can petition for her, than upgrade your petition after you become a USC but it's very risky since she's already into trouble with immigration with the visa overstayed.


Gone but not Forgotten!

but it will take like a year to get it and she says she doesnt want to wait so long! so i was wondering if there is possible to do anything before i ll get USC???

I don't think so.

If you marry her and file for I-130 as spouse of LPR, she have to wait for a couple of years to be eligible for immigration visa number, and her immigration status will not be changed until she is eligible for immigration visa and adjust her status to green card holder upon completion of I-485.

so you are all saying that the best thing is to wait till i ll get my USC and then have her status adjust..well...hopefully it wont take a year....she really misses her family...by the way is there is any possibility for her parents to come visit? her home country just signed a conctract for no visas required to come to usa for no more then 90 days...

"She doesn't want to wait?" :lol: Wrong predicamentto be in.Well as you know there's going to be a lot of waiting when dealing with the USCIS. Like everybody says, become a USC and then the world opens up to you. YOu might want to inform her that she has overstayed in the country so it's best she sit tight and wait till you become a USC or she won't be allowed back into the country until you can get her in.

If her parents can come into the country without a visa, then that should not be a problem. They can come see you. :D Good luck in your journey.

Filing the I-130 will not grant her any legal immigration status in the US. Filing the I-130 in advance will not speed up approval of a subsequent AOS filing. So, although you may file the I-130 for her (as a spouse) while you are still an LPR, she will still be racking up days of overstay and there is really no clear impact on any of her future filings.

In addition to what everyone else has said, there's one further thing to consider: On the N-400, you are required to list your spouse, and state your spouse's immigration status. If you are married to someone without valid status at the time you naturalize, this will bring that person to the attention of the authorities. And of course if you withhold the information or lie, this could put your naturalization in jeopardy.

I don't know how much they follow up on that information. You might want to discuss the matter with an attorney. But if you finish your naturalization before marrying, the issue of disclosing a spouse's immigration status never comes up.
