Brian mate, sorry about the cancer.
Have you applied for AOS yet? (I=485 et al?)
If so then, has it been 90 days since you filed?
then you are at least eligible for a temp EAD at least to start work
You'll also need to apply for Advance Parole I-131 which could be a lengthy process in order to leave and re-enter the country

bear in mind I am far from au fait with US immigration, but this is what I am led to believe

Can you clarify about your status. Which visa did you enter the US on? Or, did you enter on a Visa Waiver then get married?

I would also recommend looking at the USCIS website to see what can be done to get you the appropriate documentation so that you can return to the US legally.

Brian, firstly I'm so sorry to hear about your condition but you seem to have a wonderful attitude, and that is known to have a very positive effect in cases like yours. All the best to you in that regard.

I'm also confused about what your current status is here. Did you enter on the VWP? Or on a K1 fiance visa? Either one has the 90-day window attached to it, but it's unclear which one applies to you.

When did you enter the States? Are you still within the 90-day window?

In any case, have you applied for AOS already? If so, when? Did you also apply for Advanced Parole so you could leave the country?

Lastly, I would STRONGLY suggest that you not post your personal information (ie, full name, phone number) on this site, unless you select the "Do not send to Usenet" option underneath your post. Otherwise, your information is put out onto Usenet, and there is no way to delete it. You can delete it in British Expats, but not in Usenet. Just a suggestion...
