I am a current international student who is about to start my 2nd semester of studies in California. I just got married to the love of my life, who is a US Citizen, in December, 2009. Me and my wife want to start the immigration paperwork [for Green Card & then Citizenship], change of status and work authorization right away, including anything else related. Could anyone point us to the right direction please?
1 : Which papers/applications do we individually or collectively file?
2 : Would my student visa continue to be valid after I send in my papers in question 1 above?
3 : Would I still need to go to the school to maintain my student visa/status after I/we apply the forms/applications from question # 1 above? Or can I stop going to school?
4 : Any tips on what to include with our applications or how to prepare for the process?
