    Default Can my Illegal Immigrant Fiance Stay?

    My fiance entered this country illegaly, b/c his country wouldn't give him a visa or whatever it was that he needed. He was here legally years before.....I want to marry him, but I am afraid of what will become? I don't want to be without him a night, let alone months to years. Can someone please advise me on what we have to do. Should he leave the way he came in and then I go there to marry him? Should I marry him here? I heard something about a law that Bush passed...something that states any illegal citizens that entered before a certain year, can stay....

    Thanks in advance for any info!

    Default Illegal Alien and Marriage

    Since he entered the country legally, the best approach would normally be to marry him here and seek to adjust his status, perhaps in consultation with an immigration lawyer.

    If he leaves the country, he will probably be unable to return for a period of years due to his prior illegal presence. That is, if he wishes to gain legal status he should not leave the country before this is resolved.
