Question
I graduated in December 2009 and got married the same month. We're in the process of sending the forms to USCIS. I'm currently working without a permit, but I've filed my taxes every year since i started working. Will USCIS decline my petition? Should I include this information on my G325A form?

Answer
Hi,

It is important to answer questions truthfully when completing USCIS applications.

The sponsorship paperwork will be approved based on bonafide marriage to a U.S. citizen and initial legal entry to the U.S. In our experience, violations of status such as employment without authorization, or overstaying I-94 (except in isolated visa categories such as K1, and C or D visas) do not interfere with approval based on marriage to a U.S. citizen.
