Ofcourse you can get married. She should get citizenship so your case would be approved faster.

Re: Marraige

Your question is rather incomplete. Are you a citizen or permanent resident? Since your girlfriend is not a citizen, what is her status, is she a permanent resident? Both of you can get married. However, as to the issue of whether either of you can gain immigrant status or even citizenship in future, it all depends on your current immigration status. Thus, the immigration status of either of you will determine which of you can file for immigrant status. Need for information? Our office may help straighten things out. Good luck.
