If my boyfriend marries me, will I still be able to get my greencard? 7 Answers as of June 26, 2013I am asking this question I came up on j1 visa - 2year rule dont apply to me, I overstayed 3months now, my boyfriend marries me and may lose his job. Will I still be able to get my greencard? He is a Jamaican but has us citizenship. We love each other, just dont know what to do if that happens, his boss told him that they are closing down the office he is working now. So he should start to seek new employment.

Your boy friend can petition you for permanent resident status (green card). You are eligible regardless of your current immigration status because you came legally to the U.S. If he looses his job, he will just need to find another person who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and has sufficient income to sign an affidavit of support in addition to your boyfriend.
