Immigration Issues/k1-visas and for an illegal immigrant

Question
I have recently developed a relationship with a man who came to the US illegally.  To my understanding, it is very difficult to obtain a visa for some of his status.  So, I wanted to know if there are any exceptions (waivers) to this status such as religious affiliation, recommendations, etc?  Or is it possible if he returns to his country and then applies?

Answer
He is not eligibhle to get it here. If he leaves the country he is subject to a 10 year bar. There is a waiver available but it it very hard to get. If he gets it he will still be there for a year waiting for an adjudication of the waiver. If they deny it he gets stuck there 10 years.
