Filed: IR-1/CR-1 Visa Country: Scotland

Hi all,

Im a newbie here.I've been browsing and reading the forum and trying to learn as much as possible. I am on a F1 status here and met my bf ( an USC ) here last year. We are madly in love and want to marry now. He too is a student living with his parents. They don't approve of our relationship, he's dependent on them. I've enough assets for 3x times for the affidavit of support. What we do not have is joint tenancy agreements, bank accounts etc.Anyone know if there are any problems if a student( he is 21 in August) files a petition for me as his spouse if we marry now? We both want to be together as soon as possible.Thanks this is a great forum.

You can marry now and he can file the I-130, g-325A, I-485 and all the supporting documents to adjust your status from student to permenant resident. Note, it is not YOU that needs to show finances able to support yourself, HE needs to show he has enough finances to support you - whether through a job, savings, or having a co-sponsor. Read the I-864 instructions to see who can qualify for a co-sponsor and what needs to be done.

Good luck.
