In 6 months I can become citizen and want to adjust the status of my husband as soon as i get the citizenship. He did not get to USA as tourist he enter without visa.
My first question is if I apply to regularize his status will that count as married more than 2 years with a citizen or the time counts since i became citizen.
Can he wait for his residence here or he must go to Chile to wait for his residence.
The length of marriage has nothing to do with immigration status. He can only adjust status in the US if he either entered with a valid visa or qualifies for 245(i). Otherwise, he will have to finish the process in his home country after obtaining the necessary waivers.
You should retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts, advise you, and handle the case. You can find one through http://www.ailalawyer.com.
CONSULT with an excellent immigration attorney and ask them about the I-601A provisional waiver. You may or may not be able to qualify for this waiver which requires extreme hardship etc. Do NOT do anything without consulting with several attorneys. For more on the provisional waiver goto
