    Answered . When you are adjusting status based on marriage and the person is an illegal alien, then it normally takes much longer to get an approval from USCIS and often results in multiple interviews and delays. Several factors, including your husband's status (under deportation - length of overstay, etc) can contribute to these delays. Basically, you have to keep following the requests of USCIS until they find to their satisfaction that your marriage is bona fide and not entered into for the purposes of immigraton.
