In theory, They are considered out of status or "unlawfully present."However, in practice if you apply to have it renewed which is not a complex process you can show you are having it renewed and would not be deported. Renew the green card, or better,if you satisfy the residency requirements, apply for citizenship.

No. You can not be deported for an expired Green Card. You can be deported for an expired Visa. You can over-stay your Visa, it's illegal in the U.S. and pretty much every other country. However, if your Green Card has expired (which is not the same as a visa), you should go to the local INS office and renew it and do it the legal way.

Why not just go back to your country, go through the process legally and then you don't have to worry about it.

If your green card has expired and you are not married then you will have to apply for another one. You will have to go to the DMV and start the paper work.

No, you have to renew your green card, or you will be turned away

If married and have a green card that has expired there is one thing you can do. You will have to go get another green card while still married.

Yes. Because you came into the u.s. legally that will help you when you get married. then your spouse has to file petition I-130, green card application and work permit. Please talk to a lawyer they will help explain the process.

No, they are here illegally and will be until they get a green card or register as a u.s. citizen

Per immigration law, YES you have to renew the green card to be a legal resident.

You said "expired passport." Did you mean expired visa? The U.S. doesn't care much about expired passports issued by other countries. If he was issued a green card, he was living here legally, assuming that no fraud was committed in obtaining it. I can't imagine that you can get into trouble for what he did, assuming you committed no fraud in helping him get his green card. I suppose that someone might say that the marriage was entered into solely for the purpose of obtaining residency status for your husband, but that should have come up BEFORE the green card was issued, not now. Having said all that, I wonder what exactly you are going to report, and to whom?

If you have been here legally for three years, you can get married. However, you can not apply for your green card until you have lived In the country for five years.

Aswer: Yes, but dont wait too long.

green,moldy,slimy, and just plain disgusting

No, you have to wait till your spouse will get US citizenship or if you are working for a company and they ned your skills they can employ an immigration lawyer who can get one on for you.

Because their just holding water and so then they stay green

Get full citizenship or get married and live in another country!

Given that combination of circumstances, it is VERY likely that you will.

Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited (YGE)had its IPO in 2007.

I dunno, how quick can you fill out forms, and how fast can your preacher talk? Whether you have a green card or not is largely irrelevant to how long it takes to get married.

No. If you come back after being deported, but the green card isn't expired yet, you will, again, be deported (which will not look good on your part being deported twice).

As of July 2014, the market cap for Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited (YGE) is $545,537,919.60.

No, I believe you must apply with your spouse and if you do get approved you have a 2 year holding period on your green card, to ensure the marriage is real
