I am wanting him to be legal and with those charges wont that stop the process? As I had stated before he has been locked up before, on probation before but no deportation order. I know we can marry but I would like to know can he become legal if we do and follow the necessary paper work and process to change status from illegal to legal?
As I had stated before he been here illegally since the age of 3. In my 1s post I said "We are wanting to get married but I believe that because they have a charge or disorderly conduct, public drunkenness, and small about of grass been on probation that will stop them from becoming legal even if we get married. Is this correct?" Not sure if I stated this correctly to be understood, but I goal is for him to be legal if we do marry. Not sure if I want it to occur if he cant become legal.
Not a problem if you can answer that would be great!
yes your assumption is correct his parents crossed illegally with him. So that is correct he was brought over illegally.
My last question regarding this is, I heard that if we do marry that the new law states that we could petition for him to stay if we show that him leaving would cause undo harm to the family. Would that still be an option for us? Also to be sure the crimes that he was arrested for will not stop him from obtaining legal status if we are married? Yes could you please refer me to lawyers to help us in our area.
