    Answered . Sounds that both paths are credible. Speak with a pro bono organization in your area. I don't think they will do the marriage case but if your asylum claim is strong and compelling, many pro bono organizations will take the case.

    Answered . If you need a pro bono attorney in your area you can search for one. Here is a resource from the American Bar Association:

    Also try Catholic Charities Immigration Legal Services,
    http://www.citizenshipworks.org/legalhelp/organ...

    Be sure that anyone you speak to has done immigration and understands family based petitions.
    Finally some on Avvo provide low cost or free consultations.
    Best of luck
