    Default Getting a Marriage License to Marry an Illegal Alien

    Iím on work permit visa and My Green card process is going on. I recently filed I 485 as a part of green card process.
    My fiancť is illegal and she came to this country on visiting visa and never gone back. She has been illegal for over 8 years now.
    My question is which is safest state for us to apply for marriage license? In Georgia I know a couple who are illegal when they applied for marriage license, they got deportation notice. I donít want county to pass on her information to ICE. I hared that Idaho is quite safe and permits anyone to marry in the sate even if you donít live there. Both of us live in Georgia. Any suggestion?

    You're not going to like it.

    Don't get married.

    Unless you're fine with the idea of you both being deported and banned. There is no "safe state".

    Did she enter legally and fall out of status or did she enter illegally?

    Definitely don't get married. You're not even a PLR yet and you want to marry someone out of status? It doesn't work that way, this is a lose lose situation for you. Here are some options:

    - Receive your PLR card.
    - Wait the two years and apply for U.S Citizenship
    - Get married after you are naturalized
    - File the adjustment of status paperwork for your spouse

    This will work if your fiance will not get deported while all of this is going on, but from experience the chance of this working is very low, hire an attorney.
