San Francisco, CA asked in Immigration Law for California

Q: My fiance is in process of Naturalizing. If I get married with her, apply for GC, can she be considered as citizen?

I''m here by Student Visa and she has been a green card holder for 5 years. My visa is expiring and I need to leave the country by October. I know getting married with her when she actually has the citizenship is the best but I'm wondering if during the process of naturalizing can count as a citizen or no. or if there is any way around.

A: Your fiancé will not be considered a citizen until her application is approved. You can marry her before she becomes a citizen. We recommend you talk to an immigration attorney for more details.
