I would not recommend using a visitor visa or the Visa Waiver Program to enter the US if your intention is to stay in the US and apply for an immigrant visa based upon your marriage to a US citizen. However, there is case law that states that if the spouse of a US citizen does have the intent to stay when they enter the US, as long as they didn't actually lie or use any false documents to obtain the visa or to enter the US, then they should still be able to apply for a green card in the US. However not all USCIS office apply this case law equally across the board. So you should definitely consult with an experienced immigration lawyer before filing anything.
As to the other part of your question... yes, If someone is eligible to apply for a green card application in the US (Application for Adjustment of Status), as a general rule they will be allowed to stay in the US in an Authorized Period of Stay while their application is pending. However someone who is not eligible to apply will not necessarily be in an Authorized Period of Stay simply because they filed an Application for Adjustment of Status.
I am planning to buy a new Papa John's franchisee. I am at the application stage. At what stage E-2 visa can be obtained if opening a new franchisee? e.g. signing franchisee agreement, store site approval, lease confirmation signing, actual constr...
You should definitely have a good immigration attorney help you with the E-2, as well as a corporate lawyer with experience working with E-2 applicants. Because the worst-case scenario in this situation is not just being denied the E-2. The worst case scenario in this situation is where the E-2 is denied and you find yourself stuck with a company that you own, but no visa to allow you to be in the US to run it.See question

I reside in the States but my fiance is in another country. Will he be able to obtain his green card without living in USA?
The green card is for those people who intend to have the US as their permanent residence. He could get a green card if he is living outside the US, but if his intention is to continue spending the majority of his time outside the US, then he will eventually end up abandoning his permanent residence. I would recommend that you consult with an immigration lawyer to review your fiancé's situation and get an idea of whether it is worth it for you to pursue a green card for him.See question

Your degree's CIP code is listed on your I-20. Look for your CIP code on ICE's list to see if your degree would count as a STEM degree for purposes of requesting a STEM extension of your OPT.See question
i am resubmitting my question with more detail.thank you very much in advance for your help !!! my wife will have immigrant visa interview very soon and i am going to send her copy of our phone call records,money transaction, marriage certifi...
I agree with the prior answers. I will also suggest that instead of altering the document to remove numbers, which you definitely shouldn't do, you instead have her bring in the original phone records and either you or her take a highlighter and highlight those numbers that are relevant. Good luck.See question
I filled a petition for an immigration visa for my husband from India after 1 year of our marriage since I was living with him here in India, his visas were approved by last month. He went to United States a couple of weeks back and his green card...
If your initial green card application (I am assuming you filed an I-485) has not been approved yet, then you are not at the stage in the process where you would need an I-751. If your I-485 is not approved until after your 2nd anniversary, then he should not receive a Conditional Residence, and an I-751 should not be necessary.
It sounds like you are trying to do this on your own without an attorney, and it sounds like you don't quite have the process down. I would highly recommend that you consult with an experienced immigration lawyer about your situation, as you want to make sure that you have not abandon the green card application and that he does not end up abandoning the permanent residence status once the permanent residence is granted.

As a general rule someone who entered on a visa and is married to a US citizen can apply for a green card as ling as they haven't done anything to make them inadmissible. You should have a consultation with an immigration lawyer to see if theee is any reason why you would be ineligible.
