Hi All

I understand that you can enter the USA on the visa waiver program and over-stay the 90 days - then get married.....and then you go through the regular process from inside the USA.....can anyone confirm?

In Arizona its hot hot hot.

There is a great deal of controversy, due to conflicting caselaw, about whether or not you can adjust status on the visa waiver program. It depends what circuit your intended lives in as well as the practices of the local uscis office. Don't risk it. File the appropriate petition( spousal or fiance) and go from there.

My husbands 8th circuit appeal is listed by AILA ( american immigration lawyers association) as one of the precedent setting cases in reference to the VWP. Myhusband was removed after a failed asylum and attempt to adjust on VWP. VWP entrants are only entitled to asylum only proceedings and not removal proceedings. If they find you out, they will deport you. Not to mention a permanant yet waiveable ban for fraud is a huge possibility.

Once again, don't do it.
