hi everyone!

have a question....a friend of mine who is from Morocco has been here, in the USA, studying for his PhD. He has been here for about four years. Recently he married an American woman he met at school. How does they go about adjusting his status from a F1 to permanent resident? Do they file an I130 petition? If so, what steps should they do after that?

Thanks!

Gina
