I'm thinking of marrying my boyfriend who is not a citizen. What do I need to know/expect afterward in terms of laws and government regulation.
There is an established procedure to apply for the green card for people who are qualified and get married to US citizens that is explained well on the USCIS web site. As far as what you can expect for your particular case, that will depend entirely upon the specifics of your case. If you talk with an experienced immigration attorney, he/she should be able to ask you some questions and provide you with the information you need to move forward.See question
He's been in this country for 5 years now
If he entered the US legally, even if he has overstayed his authorized period of admission, so long as he met the other requirements, the US citizen could petition for a green card for his legally married spouse and the foreign national spouse could apply to change his status to permanent resident (green card holder). I have handled many cases like that.See question

So long as your marriage is legal in the place where the two of you marry, the US government, including the USCIS, will recognize it. The procedures would be the same for the two of you as with any other married couple. Your spouse will file an Immigrant Petition for you and you will file an Application to Adjust Status to Permanent Resident (if you are legally in the USA).See question

Based on what you have written, it sounds like the case is difficult, but if it is a good marriage, it should work. Since you are out of status, you want to make sure that the case is very strong before you file to adjust your status to permanent residency. Consult a good immigration attorney before you proceed.See question

Aunt a GC holder of 10 years, working in high profile job for past 15 years, was declared dangerous(attempted suicide with a gun). The state statute reads dangerous person as risk to herself or "others". Does this make her lose her permanent resid...
I agree with my colleagues. Without a criminal conviction and based only on what information you provided, she should not be in danger of losing her permanent residency. There could be some issues if she is applying for naturalization, though.See question

Hi,My H1b was approved in 2008 and i worked on it for 6 months but did not stamp my H1b. I then left the US for 3 years. I am currently planning to come back to the US. Am i cap exempt?
Unless there is more to your story, I agree with my colleagues that you are subject to the cap. If you can find a job with a cap exempt employer (a university or a not-for-profit organization affiliated with a university) that would allow an H-1B to be filed for you without concern for the cap.See question
Also will there be any concern in renewing my H-1B Visa in future (2014) if my employer wants.
Karin is correct. When you get within 6 months of the expiration of your H-1B or you need to amend your H-1B, you should be able to file the application and get back into H-1B status, based on a USCIS memo, which lacks the full force of law.See question
