F1-OPT Overstay Marriage Green Card

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all my fiance and I are getting married in November. My OPT expired in June and we are preparing all the forms we need to file.

 

Is it possible to get everything ready now and file the package the next day right after our marriage in November? Has anyone been in this situation before? Are there any additional notes we need to make in our application as I overstayed or would everything be the same application wise?

 

Would love to be in contact with anyone who has been through this process before as we want to do this right!

 

Thank you!

You need your marriage certificate first before you can file

 

Is your fiance a US citizen? If yes then overstay is forgiven. I filed for my husband after he overstayed a tourist visa for 5 or so years. He has his green card now. 

 

But why wait until November?
