was wondering if anyone else was in a similar situation. I am a US citizen, born and raised, and my fiancee was born in Mexico and was brought over illegally when he was 5. Even once we are married, he is not eligible for a green card until we jump through a number of legal hoops, pay a lawyer a lot of money, and even then there is a decent chance the application will be denied and he will remain undocumented until the laws change. I was wondering if any other brides or brides to be are going through the process, if they had any advice and if they were successful in applying for a green card? 

EDIT: I already have a lawyer, just curious to see what other peoples experiences are with immigration and the whole process

  • One of our BM's who married here but was a Brit before getting married - it took her 15 years to maneuver through the process...  All I've got is Good luck maneuvering through the process!!!
