Hi, I am an International Student but fell out of status since last July because I dropped out of one of my classes due to medical reasons. Me and my boyfriend of almost a year are getting married now (he's a citizen) and our marriage is bona fide. We've been living together since last December as well. Should I anticipate having any trouble adjusting my status?
Provided you entered lawfully and you are adjusting status as the spouse of a U.S. citizen, the fact that you fell out of status isn't going to affect whether you are eligible to adjust. I agree with my colleagues, however, that you should have a thorough analysis of the case with an experienced immigration attorney to make sure there isn't a different problem that you weren't aware of.
