Q: Can a undocumented immigrant get married to a green card holder
A: A person without lawful status in the U.S. can marry a resident within the U.S. if the requirements of the jurisdiction where the marriage will occur are fulfilled.
Good luck to you.
A: The simple answer is yes. But if the undocumented person is out of status, he will have to consular process and will need a 601A waiver approved before he leaves for the interview. http://601waiverlawyers.com/indexm.php
Ify Princess Ikeakanam agrees with this answer
A: As long as your marriage is bonafide, there is no restriction for marriage. The issue of unlawful presence only arises if you seek to adjust status now.
When the GC holder spouse becomes a U.S citizen, the undocumented immigrant spouse becomes an immediate relative. The unlawful presence restriction is waived for immediate relative.
