My girlfriend's visa is expiring in a year

Hi all,

As the title says, my girlfriend's work visa is expiring in a year. She has been in the United States legally now for around 7 years (through different visas due to school, work etc I presume). Obviously marriage is the easy answer but if im being honest I don't know if im prepared for that and have concerns about our relationship in general. However, I still want to be sure she's safe

Her mom is now here and has been filing for asylum, because back in their country, a relative wanted to basically sell my girlfriend to some rich guy so the family could profit (this guy has 2 wives already). Her mom said no and they threatened to kill her which is why she has fleed here.

My girlfriend says she cannot apply for asylum because she has been in the country for more than a year. Is this true? I know Biden has just made some changes to the policy as well, supposedly making it a bit easier to seek asylum. Does anyone think she would have a case?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am feeling quite stuck in knowing what the right thing to do is
