This is coming up a lot lately. If someone overstays their visa, or comes into the country illegally, it will not make it legal to marry them. They will probably be required to go back to their home country for 3-10 years, depending on how long they have been in the country illegally.

That is why you need to get a lawyer..The lawyer files documents on your behalf so that you don't get sent back to your country.

A lawyer can help, but I think that even a lawyer cannot always keep someone from being deported if he is in the US illegally. Sometimes the attorney will be able to keep it from happening, but it is not a guarantee.

My fiance is in the US here legally.  He is on Parole and has a court hearing in sept. 2012.  He has not done anything yet to support his case, but our relationship is opening new doors for him to overcome his removal proceedings, he was admitted  as a permanent resident in 1972 at JFK International Airport.  His last visit home was in July 2011 he was detained upon entry back into the US States.  He now needs to start somewhere and is ready.  I am lost as to what I really need to do??

What is it you are trying to do? If he is here legally, but detained due to a crime, then you will probably want to talk to a lawyer. Are they saying they are going to take away his permanent residency due to the issue?

It is not usually wise to marry someone who is in the US illegally, as that does not automatically make them legal. You should get them legal first, and then marry afterward.

You should ask your question, and if someone can help, they will. Nobody is able to help you if you don't ask the question, because mind-reading isn't a common thing yet. :)

So if I fell in love with a citizen and we decided to marry, it would not help me to become legal, if I wanted to? Not that I have a desire to change my status at the moment, but it's good to be aware.
