You should speak to an attorney to discuss this case. There are many issues that effect the answer to your question. The first being whether the woman who injured you has any assets that you could attach in order to satisfy a judgment or recover a settlement?
See a lawyer. Good luck!
You can begin processing the paperwork for your green card as soon as you marry. Once married, you do not need to leave the US. Once you file the entire process takes about 5 - 6 months. You should get your work authorization a couple months before it is final.
I highly recommend you retain counsel to assist with the process to make sure it goes smoothly. I am a little concerned about your comment, "we plan on getting married before this date so that we can continue live together and so...
No, it makes no difference that you are applying from the same address. But, your boyfriend must be either a high school graduate or in school. I doubt his employer will want to admit to hiring an undocumented alien. Talk to a lawyer to help him find ways to prove he was here 5 years. But, do not apply until he has his ged or is in school.
Do you know what basis he has to apply for a green card? What is his status in the US today? He cannot marry in the US unless he first divorces you. As far as alimony is concerned, that is a matter of family law and you should ask a family lawyer that question. But, I am confident that the fact that you are Taiwanese would not preclude you from receiving alimony.
I am very sorry to hear about your situation. I would recommend that you speak to a family lawyer now before he takes any action.
My colleague is correct. I recommend that you retain counsel to assist with the process to assure it goes smoothly. Since we are nearby and have an office in Tampa, we would be pleased to assist. If you choose to go elsewhere, that is fine. I would recommend though that you hire an attorney who is a member of AILA, the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
No, I do not see a problem unless they have been spending significantly more time in the US than you stated above. WIth a B2 visa, they can come to the US (across any border) for up to 6 months at a time. The problem we see is when a person comes on a b2 visa, leaves at 6 months, then returns shortly thereafter for another long period of time appearing to have immigrant intent.
Mr. Beer is correct. Your lawyer will tell you what you need before coming to his/her office. The evidence needed depends on your situation. It would be impossible to get the list here. By the way, I would STRONGLY encourage you to speak to a lawyer BEFORE you marry for reasons that the lawyer will explain.
