Married to an “Undocumented” Alien

What happens Next?

I am a devoted fan of CityMasala and I am especially in tuned with the Legal Corner. I have a few questions. I am a US citizen married to an "Undocumented" illegal immigrant with a child.

Is there anything that can be done to try and obtain my husband's status here in the USA . My husband has obtained a tax ID number and we have documentation (taxes) proving he has been paying taxes here in the USA for at least 8-10 years.

So there is absolutely nothing that can be done?

Well... where should I start? Long story short, I was born in Amritsar, India. After college, I studied martial arts in Bangkok, one of my biggest passions, while working as a chef.

Guilt Free Diet??

Two months ago, I drastically changed my diet...for good. I add the “for good” because I have made the healthy diet pledge before and then gone back to my hamburger-pizza-cupcake eating ways. This time, I have vowed to stop eating all meat except fish and to attempt to stop all dairy consumption. I say “attempt” for the latter because I have stopped using dairy in the home, but have found it nearly impossible to do so outside the home. Yes, I am not trying hard enough.

Eventually, I will be strong enough to go all the way and stop consuming fish and dairy as well, but for now my main goal remains to relieve years of guilty eating. Read More
