Yes, the status is irrelevant when tou marry. I would be glad  to assist you and your fiancee in gettig a green card after the marriage. Please pay attention to the possible "2 year residency requirement" restriction that the exchange student may have. Please feel free to contact me at meltser@bmlaw.com
