My Chinese girlfriend has been in America for 2 and a half years. She came with an F1 visa but went right to work instead. Also, when she got here she was advised by one of her friends to start a religious asylum case in hopes to get a green card. Her friend didn't tell her that if you fail the interview that you could be deported. Well of course she failed because a religious asylum is not the reason she came, so now she has an ongoing case for that. She does have a work permit now. We have been dating for about 6 months now and we're starting to talk about marriage and having children. After doing some research into her situation, I'm really getting discouraged. I know what we have is real. Is there any way that we can salvage this so we can get married and start a family.
If her asylum was denied it means she is now in immigration proceedings. Assuming this is the case you will need an attorney to represent her. That attorney can also advise you on the best path forward. My firm handles such cases.

We would need more information to be able to help you. There are various factors that can be very prejudicial for your girlfriend, such as filing a frivolous asylum case. If she does not have one yet, she definitely should retain an experienced immigration attorney to help her with the removal case and with the application for immigration benefits from you if you decide to marry her.
