Entered on B1 / B2 visa, met my boyfriend here, want to get married in 3 months

I entered the States on a B1 B2 visa, was given 6 months (in April). In May I met a guy online. I know it's still early stages, but we see each other every single day, and plan to get married in September in the States. My 6 months run out in October. Is this possible, to get married here and then adjust my status? When I came in, I haven't even met him. I'm South African. Or should we rather get married in South Africa and hope my application to come back is quick?

Absolutely can AOS here. Any overstay will be forgiven, so don't worry about when visa expires. Get married. File immediately. Go on a honeymoon and have fun.

Yes you can as long as you entered US without intent to marry him.

However, if you met the guy in May... pretty much immediately as you entered.. and already have plans to get married... Not a very believable story...I would not try it on the interviewing officer... The questions that will immediately arise are:

1) How did you meet?

2) Why getting married so fast?

3) What was the purpose of your visit? Did you have travel itinerary?

All and all if this is truly the case you may be able to pull it off as legally it is permissable. However, be prepared for an interview and that USCIS interviewers are pretty experienced and if they catch you on lie or falsifying any information you may get a ban. At the same time if this is the case and you truly entered with itinerary without EVER knowing him you should be fine.

Hey San--

Don't scare her too much !! It's very easy if you can prove exactly what San has said--if you can prove no intent when you got here, then it is a piece of cake--don't worry about knowing him a short time--happens all the time.

Thank you so much! I can definitely prove I have not met him when I came. My sister is a US citizen, I came to visit her before returning home. Met my honey, fell in love, just know he's whom I want to spend the rest of my life with.

Intent to marry is not an issue. Intent to marry AND stay AND directly lied about the intent to the CBP officer would be a problem. The rest of her personal relationship is frankly, NONE of your or our business.
