My boyfriend is a U.S green card holder, I am with F1 visa. We plan to get married this year. I want to know if we get married and he files green card for me on June, when I will get working permit.
Having gotten married to a spouse that has a green card does not give one the legal right to live and work in the USA during the 2 or so years that a Form I-130 Immigrant petition filed by the GC holder spouse on your behalf will be pending - quite the contrary - most "non-immigrant" visas ("NIV"), with the exception of “H-1B and “L” require one to continue maintaining "non-immigrant intent', whereas the filing of an I-130 petition denotes irrefutable "immigrant intent"..
Also, as the spouse of a GC holder, to ultimately "adjust status" in the USA you must maintain valid NIV until such time that the "priority date" on your I-130 becomes "current" under the visa bulletin and you are able to file for I-485 "adjustment of status" in the US. Not simple or easy, but could be done. You must schedule a private, paid consultation in-person or over Skype with an experienced lawyer to analyze the options available to you.
