Marriage to green card and student visa?
I have a green card and my girlfriend is here on a student visa. We would like to marry here in the U.S., but I heard that you could lose your visa if you do. Is this true? What is the logic in it?
No, he not lose your student visa. However, their marriage did not immediately get a green card. When a petition for green card holder spouse who is waiting 5 and 1 / 2 years for a visa becomes available. If you were a U.S. citizen could adjust their status to immigrants immediately. If you become a citizen U.S., while he is waiting for you to notify immigration, so that their request for him can be improved and that will get your visa immediately. As soon as she married a file I-130, I-864 and G-325A for him. He can stay in the U.S. as long as your student visa lasts, but when school stops must leave the country if he's still waiting for an immigrant visa.
