Q: Hello, im alien, gonna merry my supouse and she did not fill taxes for last 17 years, can I still get green card?
If your future spouse is a U.S.citizen or U.S. lawful permanent resident, the FORM I-130 can be filed with USCIS by your spouse once you marry.
You can also file the FORM I-485 if your spouse is a U.S. citizen and you lawfully entered the U.S. and if you are otherwise not inadmissible.
The fact that your future spouse has not filed federal tax returns may impact the FORM I-864 which is required at the time you file for adjustment of status. You can have a qualifying co- sponsor file the FORM I-864.
Good luck to you.
