Out of status, getting married
so i came here on a students visa & attended college regularly. i married my best friend but before i could apply for citizenship, our marriage broke. i had stopped attending college because i wanted to save my money for our new family and because i thought it was a matter of time before i get my citizenship. anyways, i was depressed for the longest time & did not go back to college because i thought i would be thrown out. a year has gone by, and i am happier than ever now because i have found someone else - the TRUE love of my life, and we got enagged last month and married this past week. i want to apply for citizenship, i want to pay taxes and live here happily without any fear of being alien.
am i out of status? am i a illegal? a friend told me that this 2nd marriage of mine is not legal (my first was annulled) but is this true? if i apply for citizenship now, will it get accepted, or will i get thrown out? my wife and i are very worried because i came here legally, and have always loved this country, i never meant any harm, did not work illegally or do any crimes, i speak english, and i want to live here legally with the love of my life and PAY MY TAXES. please help!
