  1. Doubtful that you can get a license if you have no valid immigration status.

    The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.


  2. once you apply for adjustment and receive your employment authorization, you should not have a problem

    This is not legal advice and a client attorney relationship is not created. For a free consultation call (718)234-5588.


  3. Your USC spouse needs to file an Alien Relative Petition on your behalf. At the same time you need to file to adjust status and for an EAD. Once you have done this you will be able to get a driver license.
