    Default Canadian To American Citizenship

    Hi there,

    I am a Canadian Citizen who fell in love with an American Citizen. I drove here without a passport, as all i needed was a drivers license and Birth certificate. I Believe i was allowed 6 months visitation. I have been here for 8 months now, overstaying 2 months. We want to get married this weekend. Is there any way that i can marry her and than apply for the I-130 than readust status even though i am not on a visa here because i didnt need one?

    I would like to stay here and obtain a work permit and Social number without having to go back to Canada. From what i hear if i apply for the I-130 i have to stay in the USA correct?

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Actually from further research it appears i may need to file the I-485 with the I-I30 ??

    Will i need to file the I-785 as well to expediate a SSN and work permit??

    Hello Confused...I too am in a situation similar to yours and from my research and experience in filing in the past ....I can tell you that "you are better off filing these applications all at once. Meaning the I130-I 485 and also I785 . Whatever you do, do not forget to include all relevant information when mailing your package ie; the medical required as so forth and make sure you are mailing these application to the correct address ( some addresses have changed recently)

    Best of Luck...Hey maybe someone can even answer one of my posts ..lol
    ciao
