Q: If I was to marry my fiancé of 2 yrs who is a US citizen but is on parole, will that affects me getting a green card?
A: It most likely will not unless his criminal history involves a crime under the Adam Walsh act. Also if he’s not currently employed, he can still sponsor you but he may need to enlist a joint financial sponsor who meets the minimum income levels to act as a joint sponsor.
A: Good morning,
Most times it will not matter that your fiance is on parole, but without knowing specifics of what they are on parole for, no one can fully answer your question. Immigration law is very complicated so many things may affect whether you can get status through marriage. I am located near Columbia MD and would be happy to discuss the specifics and options with you during a consultation.
