My fiancé and I are getting married. He has been living here illegally for 10 plus years. Entered legally, over stayed. College educated. No criminal history. I'm wondering, once I file paperwork for him, how long does it take to get work authorization. It's important because I'm pregnant and will not be able to work pretty soon. Also, I live in RI and he lives in NY. We will move in together as soon as we get married.
