Since I already addressed all of the other questions at Law.SE, here's the last one:

What would be the best possible solution for our case ? How should we proceed so that we don't have any kind of immigration problems for future.

Probably your best bet is to petition for immigration after she becomes a permanent resident. You can marry any time before she submits the petition.

  • But it will be a long wait until she becomes a permanent resident. First, she has to wait until she is granted asylum, and then wait 1 year before she can apply for Adjustment of Status, and Adjustment of Status can take a year or so, before she becomes a permanent resident. On the other hand, if they marry before she is granted asylum, he can join her as a derivative asylee after she is granted asylum.

  • @user102008 yes, thanks for pointing that out. It did occur to me that there might be some family reunification provision in the asylum laws, but I forgot to look it up and come back to edit the answers.
