It is my first post, so hello everyone! I need to clarify some misinformation before we submit a I-130 Petition for Alien Relative. I originally had a J-1 exchange visitor visa, after that B-2 tourist extension and in the end was denied a change to F-1. I have been out of status for 4.5 years already (wow! time flies). In the meantime I started living with my fiance who won lottery and got a Green Card in Nov 2013. Since immigration is a hot topic now, we decided to get married, submit a I-130 and wait until my priority date is current or she becomes a citizen. We did not do it before, because I do not want to cause any issues during her naturalization. Also, according to instructions to I-485, I am not eligible to Adjust my Status because my authorized stay expired and she is not a citizen. Questions here: a) can marriage with out of status alien cause trouble during naturalization? b) will I have to leave the country if my priority date becomes current before she becomes a citizen? I will be subject to 10 year ban. Please advise.
