I have been seeing a woman from Mexico who has been in the US illegally for over 5 years, all of her children are here as well. Is it possible for a person to marry an illegal alien and then try to process papers?

Someone told me that as long as this person does not have a record, this could be possible? Is this true?

Hope someones knows where i can find some answers.

thanks in advance!

It's possible, but none of the forums on here can help you. You need the services of a good immigration attorney specializing in waivers of inadmissability. Check out the American Immigration Lawyers Association if you need help locating good immigration attorneys.

It will be a costly and long fight if your future wife and her children are allowed to obtain legal status. The US government is very forgiving of immigration violations if the alien is the spouse of a US citizen. However, not all violations are forgiven so you really do need to consult an attorney and see if you have a case.

Good luck.

On the I-485 adjustment of status form it states that you can not adjust status if...

"You were not admitted or paroled following inspection by

an immigration officer";

They way I understood it is that it is easier to get "forgiveness" on an overstay if you married a US citizen if your entry into the United States was legal, if you entered illegally then it is much harder.

Thas said, I agree that you need a good immigration attorney to overcome this hurdle.

Keep us informed on how you are progressing
