Lynnwood, WA asked in Immigration Law for Washington

Q: Hello, How to apply for a marriage green card? I have no idea where to start and how to fill out forms. Thank you.

I'm an asylum status in the united states, and I have an individual hearing in the immigration court on Sep 12. 2023. However, my boyfriend and I have decided to get married. I'm wondering how can I transfer my case to a marriage green card and how can I start? I really need help since we can't afford for finding an attorney.

Thank you so much!

A: In basic terms, you need to file a concurrent package of federal forms Along with other evidence of a bona fide relationship, marriage, with proofs and supporting documents and have an LPR approval prior to your Asylum interview. In my professional opinion that this should be done with a trained licensed attorney to make sure that you’re not making any mistakes and you adjust before the asylum interview.

A: If you have an asylum case pending in the immigration court and you marry a USC while the case remains pending, you can withdraw the asylum petition. I suggest you keep the case open until you know that the marriage adjustment is going to work out, The process is detailed. I suggest you consult with an experienced immigration attorney.
