Unemployed Fiance with H1 visa
My fiance entered the U.S. with an H-1 visa. The company he was working for terminated his employment in Decemeber and he is now out of a job. If we get married can I still put in the application for him to receive his green card since his H1 isn't expired yet? Also how soon after being terminated from employment can he stay in the U.S.? Also can we apply for a green card directly from an H1 or do we have to apply for a different visa first? Thanks

Re: Unemployed Fiance with H1 visa
You may file your spouse petition at any time after the two of you have married each other. However, if his status under the H-1 visa expires before he is able to adjust to the permanent resident status he will have to abandon the country and pick up his permit in another country.
