    Unhappy Marriage of a Minor to an Immigrant

    i have a problem.

    i am engaged to a man who turned 18 in june. i turned 17 in august. the problem is, he is leaving next year, and we need to get married before then so that he can be free to return to the U.S.

    the problem here is...i am a minor, and my father is opposed to the marriage.

    i will not turn 18 for another ten months.



    but we need to get married before then...what can we possibly do, short of getting pregnant before then so we can marry in georgia?

    we live in texas.

    help...?

    Default Re: marriage- minor and immigrant

    Pregnancy won't help you get married, even in Georgia. You would need parental permission.

    Marriage does not automatically give somebody immigration status. What is his current status? How would you establish to the USCIS that you would be able to financially support him?
