Minneapolis, MN asked in Immigration Law for New Jersey

Q: My girlfriend is currently on her 2nd year of Au Pair Program. Planning on getting married. Which forms we need to file?

She will be done with her program in August. She does not qualify for the 2 year residency so she is good to stay. Should we get married before her Au Pair Program ends so we can get ahead with all the paper filling or should we wait until she finishes her program?

A: Adjusting status on anything other than a K1 fiance visa is a complex process. There are several forms and supporting evidence which must be submitted perfectly to be successful. You should contact an experienced immigration attorney for assistance.
