Hello to every one...

This is my situacion..

I came here to the states with an student visa on august 2005, I went to school for that semester,without any problem, after that my visa was expired on december 2005 but i decided to stay and take another semester of school with a current I-20 but after that semester i was not able to pay another semester of school. and decided to stay in the states.

well the thing is... I am getting married to an US Citizen in a couple of weeks... i am wondering if i will be able to get a permanent resident card, and what kind of issus i will be confronting during the process .... i will apreciate any kind of adviced of if you have questions for me, feel free to ask them..

"and decided to stay in the states." What does that mean? You deliberately and with intention violated immigration law?

Basically you are out of status because you are no longer in school. You can adjust your status through marriage to a US citizen. The only two things that might come up are 1) if you've left and re-entered the country once you became 'out of status' and 2) if you are accused of visa fraud since you came to the US to study and yet are not doing so. (I've only heard of cases where people came to the US on a student visa and never went to school have this accusation but you never know.)

As always, check with an immigration attorney.


Nothing I say is legal advice. I recommend you consult a qualified immigration attorney for any questions you may have.

Luckily for the OP, if they file I-130 and I-485 together, USCIS doesn't care, and overstay and unauthorized work will be forgiven.

OP - I'd consult with a lawyer to see if there are any potential complications that you haven't detailed here, but if you file the I-130 and I-485 together, you should be fine. It's doubtful there will be visa fraud accusations, as you went to school, so obviously used the visa for its purpose. However, if you did re-enter the country after leaving school (again, doubtful, but some people are sneaky...) that would be an issue as well.
