I traveled back to my home country and my H1B stamping got denied under 221(G). Its been a while now and there's no response from the immigration. My BF on the other hand is a green card holder and is living in the States. Is it ok if he comes back and we get married? Will I have complication filing for GC paperworks?
Yes, you can marry your boyfriend and file for a green card through him. Keep in mind that spouses of green card holders may have a long queue based on country of birth. This means you may file, but may not be able to come to the US immediately. Also, whether you have another lengthy review at the consulate will depend on why they issued a 221g the first time. It may be prudent to discuss the issues on the 221g with an attorney before proceeding to file another petition.
