My girlfriend recently entered the US on a student visa (F1). Since then we have decided that we want to get married. I heard that we must wait 60 from when she entered the US to apply for marriage license, or else we might run into problems with ...
There is no such rule. Some attorneys advise waiting a respectful period after entry to avoid the impression that she is abusing the F-1 visa by entering with "immigrant intent." In actuality, of course, it is not unusual for a person who enters on a non-immigrant type visa to form such intent thereafter.
If she has business outside the U.S., then it would be best for her to finish that traveling before you two make any firm plans to marry. She would, of course, also want to be in compliance with her enrollment in school.
Upon marriage, she can apply for adjustment of status to permanent resident without leaving the country. While that application is pending, she must not use her F-1 to travel or that will be considered abandoning her application for green card. She may, however, use an advance parole document to travel.See question
im not marrid with him they are willing to do it so they can see him he has diabies an my 18 year old has gotten 3 surgeries near the brain an is to continiue she is disabled
It sounds as if he lived in the US before and then left the US. If he violated US immigration law when he was here, then his options are different than if he never violated US immigration law. Assuming he never violated US immigration law, the most obvious way for him to see the girls would be to get a visitor visa. Instructions are at https://ceac.state.gov/genniv/.See question
Hi, I have a conditional green card for 2 years from my previous marriage and just filed my 1-751 to remove conditions, I now would like to get married to my fiance would this cause any hurdles or problems on my current immigration status? There ...
Remarrying does not complicate your I-751 claim. You correctly recognize that the issue on the I-751 is the legitimacy of the former marriage, not how quickly you moved on.See question

He is in jail has been deported twice tryed to reenter has family that why try to come back
There is no waiver, and if he was already removed and came back again, the court is not likely to consider reopening his prior removal. He will likely be charged with the separate crime of criminal reentry. After serving his time for that offense, he will then be processed for a reinstatement of his prior removal (deportation). Because this is a reinstatement, the fact that he may have family who depend on him is not going to be significant. the time to talk about family or other equities was when he was first being removed. He will, however, be asked whether he is afraid to go back. If he is, then he will have an opportunity to be heard about that issue and only that issue before they will reinstate his removal.See question

I am a US citizen with a daughter who is 4 years old. Her biological father was an illegal immigrant who got deported back in 2012 while I was still pregnant. I am engaged and soon to be married and my fiancé is wanting to adopt my daughter as his...
Yes, he retains his parental rights despite being deported. He would have to relinquish them or they would have to be severed in court before your new husband could adopt her.See question
Hello, Can someone immigrate their nephews, neices, or cousins to the US if that someone have a US citizen? Thank you an I appreciate the time you will take to answer my question.
Often, the way for you as a US citizen to help your niece or nephew is by filing for your sister or brother who is their parent. The sibling might not be the person who wants to immigrate, but, depending on the timing, the niece or nephew would be able to immigrate along with them as their minor child.See question
I have been approved Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, I already have my work permit, and i was thinking of traveling from Tucson, Arizona to LA soon. What documents would you advise I take if traveling through either Greyhound, Amtrak, or A...
Your work permit and any government-issued identification, such as passport, state ID, or driver's license. I recommend a passport rather than a matricula consular or registration card. Your work permit has a notation of your deferred action status on it. You do not need to carry any other proof of that status.See question
I am Canadian and my husband is American, I am here in Arizona on a student visa. When he petitions for an alien relative, how long will the whole process take for me to receive my green card and start working?
No more than three months for you to receive your work permit. After that, you must take the work permit and use it to get a Social Security number. That takes another few weeks to come in the mail. You will need both work permit and SSN to start work. Your marriage interview will be scheduled shortly thereafter. Assuming all goes well, it may still be good couple of weeks after a successful interview to receive the card. You can keep on working with the work permit until the green card arrives.See question
