we both have birth certs. but don't have ssn# can we still get married in the state of texas?
That's a question to ask the marriage bureau in your local area. Whether or not a Social Security Number is required to be married is a question for them to answer. It has nothing to do with immigration law.See question

You may be eligible under HRIFA. The Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act (HRIFA) was signed into law on October 21,1998. The interim rule to be published in the May 12, 1999, Federal Register establishes the procedures that eligible Haitians will use to file for adjustment to lawful permanent resident (LPR) status pursuant to section 902 of HRIFA. The interim rule takes effect on June 11, 2000.
To be eligible for these benefits, Haitians must belong to one of the five classes specified in section 902 (b) of HRIFA; must have been physically present in the United States on December 31, 1995; must have remained continuously physically present in the United States since December 31, 1995; and must not be inadmissible to the United States under any grounds of inadmissibility for which HRIFA does not specifically provide an exception. Certain Haitian dependents are also eligible.

You have not provided enough information to allow a response.See question
Also, I believe he married me for a green card. I contacted immigration and my state Senators, but they were of no help. I later found out that he filed for citizenship based on I-360 which is a scam. What can I do?

Hi i am on F1 status here. i have an international driving license permit valid with 1 year which is issued from an India. it saws it valid in USA. i am in PA state. how can i take my driving license of PA? i have my country License too. i mean i ...
Driver licese issuance varies from state to state. Only the department that issues drivers licenses in your state can adequately answer your questions. Be aware that many states require a person residing in that state to obtain a valid driver license within a certain time period, usually 30 days, after becoming a resident of the state. Your international driver's lices may not be valid to keep you free of reprocussions from that requirement.See question

To file under EB-2, you need an employer who is willing to sponsor you in a Labor Certification. If this would be the case, it would naturally follow that you would be employed by them first as an H-1B.See question

Since you did not go out of status, you are eligible for Change of Status back to H-1B. File away!See question

Yes, you can "overstay" your H-2B, even before you apply for permanent residence. Marriage to a US citizen exempts you from Immigration & Nationality Act Section 245(c) and you can adjust (not change) your status to that of permanent resident any time after your marriage to a US citizen, as long as you initilally made a lawful inspected entry and are otherwise eligible for adjustment of status. Relax, take your time, hire an immigration lawyer to help you and enjoy your life.See question
Will I still be in legal status?
I assume by "H4 receipt" you mean the fee receipt for the I-539 Application to Extend or Change Status. You can do nothing until you receive your Approval Notice. Upon the granting of H-4 status, your F-1 status automatically expires. You will want to notify the school after your status has been changed, but not before.See question
My R-1 Visa expired, but my I-94 allows me to stay in the country until June of 2013. I have a family emergency and I would like to travel and be able to come back, am I eligible to apply for re-entry permit or advance parole?
Reentry Permits and Advance Parole do not apply in your case. You will need to apply for a new R-1 visa at a US Embassy or Consualte abroad before returning to the USA. Visas are entry documents. I-94's are permission to remain in the USA. If you continue to qualify for an R-1 nonimmigrant visa, there should be no problem obtaining one.See question
