How will you remain in status for the year and a half or more that it will take before you can file an I-485? Will you wait outside of the U.S.?

Ok. Good. Then I can say that there is no benefit nor detriment for you to marry with a justice of the peace AS LONG as the marriage is legal and valid in the location that it is entered into. USCIS would recognize it as long as it is legal in the location that it was entered into. Here is a link that may be useful:

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
