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?

2 years ago i applied for a diversity visa and i was denied

Hello , 2 years ago i applied for a diversity visa and i was denied the visa because after my interview my case went in administrative processing and at the end the embassy could not confirm my birth certificate's number in my home country's birth registry .Embassy officer therefore assumed i was providing fake birth certificate and therefor i was denied visa under 212 (a) (6) (c) (i) .Back at that time i assumed they were making all this up because i travelled to multiple places used the same passeport and birth certificate and i never encountered any issue with it .2 year after my denial i was in the process of renewing my passeport when i was told that in my home country they actually lost the birth registry entries of the year i was born in .... which is the reason why the embassy could not find it. To make up for the incident my home country is going to reintroduce the same birth certificate i 've had all this time into the registry and is also as well going to give us a statement explaining the circumstance therefore making us be able to use the same birth certificate again.Since it was not my fault and the document i provided were all legit to my knowledge at that time i'm seeking counceling on how to approach this and revert the decision if possible, because i now need to get a visa for employment opportunity i am offered in the us .. the company is willing to support me through the process but i don't really know where to start from.Let me know if you need further details to help guide me better .THANKS
