So confused!

Hey all! you have all been so helpful inmy journey in the past and I now need advice for a friend of mine. She went to the U.S. four months ago, and met up with the guy of her dreams. Is there any possible way she can marry and stay, or do all routes lead to her eventual return to Canada? They are both so terrified of the long time apart (as we all are!) and I was hoping to give her some advice on visas. Can she marry now and file for an AOS? Thanks in advance guys, you are the best.

Assuming she entered the US legally, and this man of her dreams is a US citizen, yes, she can stay and adjust status once they are married. She needs to follow this guide:


She cannot leave the US until she receives her AP or green card, whichever comes first. The AP will come within 90 days of submission of the paperwork, provided everything is in order. If she leaves before she gets the AP or green card then she will be abandoning her AOS application and will need to start again by applying for a spousal visa.
