Asked in Immigration Law for Arizona

Q: Hello, can I married my boyfriend who is a US citizen with my B1/B2visa?

Hello, we are planning to get married my boyfriend, who is a U.S citizen and me. We were planning to get married on september, but due the Corona , the border is closed and I cannot enter the United Stated with my tourist Visa. I have a B1/B2 visa that expires on April 2021 and I also have a H1B visa, that expired on June 2020 ,but due th Corona and the Proclamation that visas will not be issued until after December 2020, I have to wait. I had to come back to Mexico, my I- 94 expires until 2022, but my work visa is expired and I still have my B1/B2 visa. We are waiting for the border to open so I can enter the U.S with my tourist visa and get married. My questions is that will it be ok if we do that ? If we get married with my tourist visa ( expires april 2021) and my I-94 valid ,but H1b expired, will there be problems ?? Also if we get married , what process will be next, what type of petition has to be done due the visas I have please ?? Thank you

A: You aren’t supposed to enter the US to get married on a tourist visa. If you are questioned at the border, and it becomes clear that you plan to marry once you enter the US, your visa could be revoked, and you could be banned from entering the US for 5 years.
