Immigration Issues/change of status


Dear Sir,

I am currently on OPT until december 15,2006.  My girlfriend of 2 years and I
will be moving in together in november, and we want to get married....we still
cannot afford a real wedding, but our mariage is for love.  Will it be
suspicious if we do not have a real ceremony with pictures, etc? Also, when
would i get my EAD, and can i still work on OPT after filing all paperwork?

Thank you for your help.

"Real wedding"?  As long as your are LEGALLY married under the laws of the state in which you reside is all that matters.

once married, your spouse, if a US Citizen, can file an immediate relative petition on your behalf.  At which time you can apply for an EAD card.
