I m a green card holder right now and i will apply for my citizenship in April 2011. My BF came to US on 15 DEC 2009 on visit visa. he was about to go back but then he decided to stay here and try to change his status from visit visa to student visa. he turned in his I-94 to the immigration department and file for change of status in May 2010 because his visa was not expired at that time. he also submitted his passport to the immigration department because they said that once your status will be changed you will receive a court date and then you can collect your passport. he didn't take the exit and waited for the response. his case denied over some evidences but the denial letter said that he can re apply for motion. he then re apply for motion. a week after, the immigration officers came to his house and said that u have to go back. he then showed them the receipts and forms that he already re apply for motion and waiting for the response. they check everything and left and didn't give him any kind of deportation date. he waited for almost 3 months and on Dec 21 2010 he got the letter that his case again denies over some evidences but again the letter said that he can re apply the motion. he haven't received any court date yet. my question is if i marry him in within 15 days, what are the possible chances that he can stay here and there is no need to leave the country if i file his petition on green card and i will personally apply for my citizenship in April 2011. second what is his status right now is he illegal, out of status, over stay ? what is the possible solution that we can do because i love him so much and i don't want him to go.
