my girlfriend came to the usa illegally, and i im a u s citizen, what should we do to get her statue while she here?
3 Answers from Attorneys
Because she entered illegally, she cannot adjust or change status.
Depending on when she entered, her age, & other factors, she might be eligible for DACA.
If you get married, you will need to file a "provisional waiver" for her. If it is approved, she will need to leave the country & apply for her greencard at the U.S. Embassy in her home country. There is always a risk of the immigrant visa being denied on other grounds & then she would not be let back in the U.S. However, you should consult with an experienced immigration attorney to carefully review her case before you proceed.
Good luck to you both.
