i have deportation proceeding by October and i have plan to get married to a US citizen when is the best time to sched the marriage, before or after the court hearing...?
State/Country relating to question: California
It would better to marry prior to the deportation hearing if is it is your intent to seek any type of relief/solution based upon this marriage. After a deportation order is issued, a marriage to a US citizen would not have priority over a deportation order and you would have limited options.
As the process for deportation/removal proceedings can be very complicated and have serious consequences, it would probably be to your advantage to retain an immigration attorney as soon as possible.
