Legal Answers
739 Questions Answered
Q. Apply greencard IR5 for mom without waiting for 90-day rule
A: A US Citizen can sponsor mom for a green card who entered with a tourist visa. The general rule is that she should wait to apply because USCIS will presume immigration fraud if she doesn’t wait at least two or three months. Work with an immigration lawyer so the case is processed smoothly.
Q. Will online marriage bring my Fiancee and I together more quickly?
A: A US Citizen can sponsor a foreign national for a fiancé visa provided the couple have physically met in person within 2 years from the date of filing. The fiancé visa processing speed usually takes about 20 months before the immigrant can enter the USA.
Q. What process would need to be done, if my fiancée wants to marry me in the US but return home rather than staying in US?
A: That would be a mistake. If the fiancé exits the US after marriage to a US Citizen, she would have to process overseas for her green card and the wait time is almost two years. If she adjusts status inside the US after marriage, she can apply here without having to go back. Additionally, once she applies to adjust status, she can also apply for permission to exit the US while her case is pending. This is called advance parole, and takes about 8 months to process.
