    Default Immigration Issues From Marriage To An Illegal Immigrant

    My boyfriend, who is an illegal immigrant from Mexico, and I would like to get married. I would like him to get his greencard, but am fearing complications if he applies while in the US illegally. Is it possible to get married in Mexico and then move to the US? How can he get his green card the quickest and easiest way?

    Default Immigration

    Marriage won't resolve an illegal immigrant's lack of status.

    You either need to petition for a K-1 fiancee visa to bring him into the country legally, or get married in Mexico then file an I-130 petition for alien relative and file for a K-3 spouse visa. If you choose to marry in Mexico, the K-3 visa is a nonimmigrant visa that (once granted) would permit your husband to come into the United States pending the completion of the immigration process. The State Department provides a lot more details.

    The major issue is: did he come here with a visa or entered without inspection? If he had a visa - he can get married and adjust his status. He should not leave the U.S. - he will be subject to a 10 year bar from returning to the U.S.

    Good luck!
