My boyfriend (Homosexual relationship) is visiting from

My boyfriend (Homosexual relationship) is visiting from another country (New Zealand) and we are trying to figure out a way for him to gain residency in the U. S. It is a very serious relationship that's been going on (officially) for a few months as well as we've known each other for 3 years. We are confident this will be a long term thing and we are extremely committed but don't want to do marry yet. We are both not.... public. Family disapproval from both sides though friends and both mothers are supportive. We both consider marriage as a last resort if all else fails. This is his third time in the running for the green card lottery and hopes are low as well as time frame is way too long. Is there anything we can do to speed up or approach for residency or should we go through with a court marriage?

One of my known person aged about 30 years, entered in US

One of my known person aged about 30 years, entered in US with his wife in october 2013 on B1/B2 visa and permitted to stay six months which was expired in early 2014. The couple overstayed and had a new born baby in USA in 2014.Husband start dating some other girl and this resulted in divorced and couple now living apart since this year.Husband is trying to marriage with the girl he is dating and she is unmarried and US born.What would be the scope if they get married and she file I-130 which I think will be approved . His entry is legal since he entered on B1/b2 visa and overstayed more than three years. Is there any chance can they file 1-130/I-485 together and if not then after approval of I-130 and if they send case to NVC , can his spouse file I-601A waiver , if yes when and if not then what to do next?Thanks

Hi , i live actually in New York with all my family i am an asylee from Benin and i'm now holding a 10 year green card . My family (5 persons ) already attend their asylum interview (2 weeks ago) and have been told to come to the office tomorrow to get the response.They have valid working permit and ID .We heard that the new president (Trump) is deporting illegal immigrants. Do you think my family could be considered as illegal immigrants if they hold a valid working permit and id ? Do you think it's enough to convince the immigration officers do not deport them ?
