Marrying disabled USC

Asked over 1 year ago - Madison, WI

I am writing this question for my friend she doesn't speak English well, she just got married to a USC, he is deaf, she is not, and she barely knows the sign language , she is illegal now but came here on visa , she wants to hire an immigration lawyer to adjust her status , she is a little worried that they might give them a hard time because he is deaf , is this going to be a long process for her ?they love each other so much and willing to do anything for each other. and do they provide an interpreter at the interview ?
