I come to USA very often because of my human rights conferences and events etc. I studied on a scholarship program in 2012 From 2012 till now I have been to US many times invited by prestigious organizations.
I want to get married and apply for adjustment of status. What procedure I should follow? I always entered legally and returned to my home country on time with a good travel record. I am a public figure too.
1- Can I get married to the US citizen after 40 days of my entry in the US this time?
This year I visited US three times and went back to my home country on time.
Can my boyfriend apply for adjustment of status?
2- if I am not allowed to apply for adjustment of status 90 days before my arrival to the US then Can I atleast get married or do the religious wedding ceremony like nikkah in Islam culture? Will it be taken negative?
3- Also, he is a felon with the record of possession of marijuana and is going through probation right now. 6 months left for his probation and since he is the first time offender his case might get dropped.
Will it create any complications for him being sponsoring me?
1. You should wait until 90 days after your entry to the US before getting married and filing paperwork with the USCIS.
2. You and your fiance can perform the nikkah, have the forms prepared and assemble the supporting documentation in advance, then as soon as the 90 days passes, and you officially marry under your state law, and the marriage certificate is available, all the forms and supporting documents can be filed.
3. His marijuana possession felony record will not affect your green card processing.
