Does AOS through marriage have anything to do with been in debt ?

Asked about 1 year ago - Saint Paul, MN

I just filed to obtain my green card after marriage, I went to school a few years ago and still have a few thousand dollars in debt ( credit cards and student loans ) I am not sure if that has anything to do with the AOS, my husband talked to a lawyer in a different state on the phone and he told him that I have to pay off my debt or the process will take forever! I am not working right now actually and its impossible for me to pay it right now ..please any advice?

    Answered . Debt, in and of itself, is not an impediment to the adjustment of status process. Get a second opinion!
