He came here legally on a work visa in 2007 but did not leave when it expired, I am a legally born US citizen.
It will not cancel his court date, but it may provide him with relief from removal. Marriages entered into during removal proceedings may require some extra documentation, but you should meet with an immigration attorney directly to review the details of his case, including his full immigration and criminal history (if any) in order to determine whether he will be able to adjust his status in the US. Good luck!
No. You will need to prove to the satisfaction of USCIS that you entered into the marriage based upon a bona fide relationship. I strongly recommend an appointment it teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney as soon as possible. Our office practices at the immigration court (EOIR) at 525 W. Van Buren and Chicago USCIS. Good luck.
It will help him have a chance at winning his court case and obtaining permanent resident status through court but he will still need to go to court. Talk to an attorney located near the court where his case is. We are located near the Chicago immigration courts in downtown Chicago. Good luck!
