I am a US citizen who will be getting married to a non immigrant with a B visa but his I-94 has been expired for about 15 months now and his B visa expires in April 2013. I would like to know if he would be able to get a greencard and how long the process will take. Also can he get deported?
You should consult with an immigration lawyer about the situation. If your partner has his I-94 and his passport with visa, and if he does not have any past incidents with law enforcement or courts or immigration officials that might cause problems with his case, then he might be eligible to adjust his status to permanent resident (green card) here in the United States. If he is eligible to become a permanent resident without leaving the United States, then the entire process typically takes approximately 4 to 8 months, unless there are issues that emerge. You should consult with an immigration attorney about the case.
