    Default Can an Illegal Immigrant Attain a Green Card by Marrying a U.S. Citizen

    I am an illegal immigrant, my parents brought me here when i was 5 years old. I attended school and graduated high school. Because of my legal status i was unable to attend a university so i had to settle for a Jr college. I am still working on finishing school my career.I am now 24 years old. Since i started working i've paid my taxes and have never been in trouble with the law. My Girlfriend of 3 years is a U.S citizen and we are now planning on getting married. Can i attain a green card? And if so, do i have to leave the country to do so? Any advice helps. Thank you for your time

    You cannot adjust status from within the US at the moment; you will have to leave and apply from your home country. You will initially be denied, and you'll then have to file for a hardship waiver.

    (The fact that you're working illegally won't help, I'm afraid).

    Before you do ANYTHING though - including getting married - you should really speak to an experienced immigration attorney.

    None of the above applies to you if you're related to the President of the US
