Green Card through Marriage to a U.S. Citizen
The government does not limit the number of green cards based upon marriage. It is a popular method by which a foreign individual can immigrate to the United States. The couple must be legally married and the petitioning spouse must prove that he or she is able to financially support the beneficiary of the marriage green card. Contact us for help to accurately complete the form I-130 and more information about family marriage visas.
Permanent Residency for the Spouse of a LPR
The government imposes an annual limit on the number of marriage visas it will issue to spouses of Legal Permanent Residents. It can take between a few months and several years for the process to be complete.
Permanent Residency through Marriage Adjustment of Status
If the immigrant spouse is currently living in the United States, he or she may be allowed to complete the application process without having to leave the country via the process of Adjustment of Status (AOS). We can determine if you qualify for this and complete the form I-485 for your Adjustment of Status.
K3 Visa: Spouse of a United States Citizen
This visa permits a foreign spouse to enter the United States on a temporary basis while the Adjustment of Status process is pending. This way the foreign spouse can remain in the United States. Under certain circumstances, the foreign spouse may obtain employment authorization.
Regardless of your immigration concern, you can count on our experience and dedication.
