Question
I wanted to know how or even if my boyfriend can apply for a work visa even though he is in the USA but he has no papers and he has one baby 4 months old.

Answer
Shannon,
If he gets married to a US citizen and applies for his permanent residency he will be eligible to obtain work authorization. I would advise you to consult with an immigration attorney to confirm this. He his not eligible to either stay in the US or work just because he has a baby.

Sincerely,
