A: If you petitioned your fiancé, he was admitted into the U.S., and you marry each other within 90 days, then he can file for adjustment of status. You will need to make sure that you present all required and needed documents and forms, as well. If you are confused, or more evidence is required, then I strongly recommend that you hire a competent and experienced immigration attorney. If you are married less than two years, then he gets a two year card and must petition to remove the condition. Otherwise, he loses his status and is deportable.

The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.

A: Immigration is a matter of federal law that Louisiana must respect. Some states however do require a valid photo I’d like an unexpired passport to get married, but that should not be a problem if your fiancé is here in a k1 visa.
