A J1 visa holder can get married to a US citizen, but there are special rules attached to the J visa, as to whether you can adjust status to get your green card, after marrying your girlfriend. It is best to discuss your options with counsel in a phone consultation.
If a person enters the US legally, and overstays his/her visa and then marries an American citizen, that person can adjust status to obtain a green card, despite the visa overstay. The issue as to "violating your visa" needs more clarification. Call counsel to discuss.
Hi Dawn....Assuming you're a US citizen, and your future husband (fiance ) is in Nigeria, you should retain counsel to take the case from start to finish to make sure the case is processed without delays and without problems. Some of us charge very affordable flat rate fees. Discuss. Counsel in any...Read more »

I have a girlfriend in Australia who wants to come to the US permanently to work with me on several internet business adventures. We do not want to marry at this time and she has no family on the states. Is there a path for her to immigrate here? Please let me know.
Yes. There are several ways for Australians to come over and work on temporary or permanent basis. We will need some additional information on the business and her qualifications in order to establish eligibility. So, contact an experienced immigration attorney to help you out.

This is way too broad an inquiry to be addressed in this forum. Talk to you college counselor; better yet, if you know an attorney, see if he or she will take time to talk about these subjects with you. Most will be willing to do so, I suspect, but the task of writing a comprehensive reply to your...Read more »

The proper questions may have been avoided. The issue is what do you want to do; study or work? It should be one or the other for the purposes of the visit. If you apply for something that ‘you don’t need’ at this time, it can be denied. It can also reasonably draw suspicion....Read more »
I am a US citizen and I have a Mexican fiance who lives in Mexico. I am moving to Mexico with her. Should we get married in the US or in Mexico to prevent any Visa issues when we come visit the us in the future? She currently has tourist visa and has visited in the past.
The US will recognize any marriage that is valid within the jurisdiction within which it is performed. Mexico recognizes civil marriages performed before an official of civil registry but not religious ones.
Sorry, but this does not sound like a maritime question. Also, the naming in issue did not come through. Please try trademark and copy write experts. Thank you and best regards. Tom Evans Maritime Lawyer Please see Justia disclaimer.

Your case has a number of different aspects that have to be addressed. First, you should know that marriage to a green card holder does not forgive the unlawful presence that your husband has already accrued, and will not protect him from accruing more unlawful presence.
