Customer Question

Hi, My name is ***** ***** New Jersey. I am new to the country, with a legal status. I have my Green Card. I am planning to marry a person, who has been living in the state of Texas for the last 10 years. He is without legal status. As far as I am aware, he does not have any deportation orders. He also files his income taxes every year.
If I marry him, will his status change right away?
Can Immigration Services deport him after our marriage?
Does he have to wait until I become a citizen, in order to change his legal status?

his Immigration status does not change, however you can file for him to obtain a visa, however the wait is significant, it would be better if you marry and apply for him when you are a Citizen, at that point he would be able to obtain lawful residence faster.

In terms of deportation, if he is undocumented he can be deported, however his marriage and other factors will also be considered if any deportation case actually arises.
