Will he get deported to his home country? And will he be expelled from the university? He asked a girl to date and continuously tried to pursue her even after she refused. So, that girl put him in Harassment Second Degree case.

I want to marry him here then have him go back to canada to work until the visa is approved. How is the process different from marrying an American, such as in the way of acquiring a marriage license, etc.

I married my wife in February 2017. She was here on a K-1 Visa. She does not yet have a green card, but, we are in the process of doing an "adjustment of status" to get her one. I believe this "adjustment of status" had an "affidavit of support" form that was filed... Read more »
This is a question best asked in the privacy of an office, since all of the facts remain unclear. There are things that you can do to withdraw the I-864, but you may want to think about it, since she can self petition, where there is arguable abuse. Whether she is approved is another matter; you...Read more »
