marriage in NY

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys...

Thanks in advance..

My Girl friend is visiting here for a conference and would stay for a month. During her visit we would like to get marry.

we preferably wanted to get marry only on papers as we want to keep it ourselves until we get marry in india.

i wanted to use the opportunity of her visit and get married, so she can attend h4 visa interview on her return and I can apply for ead immediately while she is still in india. 

 

question:

can a travel visa holder can get marry ?

is there a minimum number of days stay required if getting married in NY. we can move to other state to marry if it is easier.

how many witness do we need and is there a visa status restriction for the witness persons.

Its better to talk to an attorney with all that you are planning on doing. 

One thing I will say is that you can't file for her EAD if she is in India.
