I want to marry my girlfriend. I already have a ring. She is an au pair and her program ends January 2021. Her visa expires in 30 days. The program does not have her renewing her visa. Does her visa have to be active before I marry her in order for her not to have to go back home to her country or does just her program have to be active?
