I am a Canadian Citizen and my fiancee just did his refugee papers to the US, his application got accepted but he didn't apply for the green Card yet as it hasn't been a year yet... What would be my status if we got married... after he applies for the green card and gets it? can he do the papers for me so I can move? what is the best solution for this... is it better to live in Canada, or can he do the papers for me so I can live in the US?
Getting married to an asylum /refugee does not change your status in the U.S. If and when he gets his green card he can file a petition for you to immigrate. Until the visa is approved and available, it will not give you a right to live and work in the U.S.
