Legal Answers
Q. Marriage to US citizen on ESTA and change of status
A: You may be eligible to obtain Permanent Residency through Marriage to a United States Citizen. You would be filing for Adjustment of Status and your spouse would need to file a petition for you by completing Form I-130. You should file all the required petitions and include the supporting documentation as soon as possible upon obtaining a marriage certificate. If you want to pursue this path, then you must not fly home to New Zealand. Instead, once you have married, you will file for adjustment and also apply for a travel permit. You cannot leave the US once your petitions have been filed and until your travel permit is granted. Good luck!
Q. Can I file adjustment of status form I-485 after my visa waiver deadline date?
A: Yes, you may adjust your status by filing the I-485. Your spouse would file the I-130 Petition. Because you made a legal entry into the U.S., you are eligible to adjust your status. This is true notwithstanding the fact that you file a week after your visa expires. However, there are risks involved in being out of status. You should get in touch with an experienced immigration status as soon as possible. Good luck!
