My son has been dating female from China; my understanding

Customer Question

My son has been dating female from China; my understanding is she is here on student visa, but she has been here for about 10 years. She is not currently enrolled at a university and was told today her visa would not be extended. My son wants to marry her tomorrow. Says he has planned to do that any way, this is just sooner. Question is this: can they just get married and deal with the application for green card or should they stop and consult immigration attorney. Don't him married and the wife deported.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: My details are sketchy. They have been together for over a year. She was a student at local community college and planned to transfer to a larger state university this next fall. She receives no funds from family or other sources except what she makes working locally--which i assume she is doing legally.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Immigration Lawyers generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
