A unique situation.
Hi everyone. I am a citizen of S. Korea and have been in the US (California) for about 10 years now. My application of I-485 was sent under my mother's name, as I was a minor when we first moved here. Just last night, I received a phone call from my immigration lawyer stating that there is a high likelihood of my I-485 being denied. I am not sure of the specifics as of this moment.
Before consulting an immigration lawyer, I'd like to explain the situation that I am in. In S.Korea, it is mandatory that all men are to be drafted into the military service and spend 2 years to serve the country. I cannot imagine what my life would be like in Korea. Also, spending 2 years under Korean military with no pay/benefits seem like a waste of time.
My question is, would I be able to move to Canada, while my I-485 is pending? In 2011, I began chatting with a lovely woman online via a blogging website (She's my girlfriend now). When I told her about the unfortunate news regarding my stay here in the states, she suggested that we can get a marriage license together and apply for a PR in Canada. We have the evidence (Chat logs, messages, e-mails, packages that we sent each other) to prove that our relationship is legitimate.
If I can't fly straight to Canada from the states, and I go back to S.Korea, would they let me fly out to another country without the fact that I didn't serve in the military?
Any inputs would be much much appreciated.
