    Answered . If you are married to a US citizen, you can seek to adjust your status and if your spouse's income is not enough to sponsor you, you certainly can get a joint-sponsor whose income alone must meet the poverty guidelines.

    Also, because you had a J-1 visa, you need to make sure you are not subject to the 2-year foreign residency requirements.

    Answered . I agree with my colleagues, you should consult with an attorney before filing anything.

    But if you married a US Citizen, and his income is insufficient, you will have to find a co-sponsor. Also, with a J-1 Visa it is important to know if you are subject to the 2 year residency requirement or not.

    You can contact myself or one of my colleagues to properly prepare and file your case.
