Hi guys,

My boyfriend and me married last year.Now,I am in the process in applying for a visa in order to leave for the US.They approved our I-130 but my husband was arrested and most probably he will go to prison for some time.How will this affect my visa interview and can I candidate for citizenship if at the same time my husband is in prison?Thanks!

Hi,

if you married last year it is your husband and not your boyfriend anymore. Your visa application can get denied if your husband is your only sponsor. I am not sure how he will prove a certain income if he is in prison.

Because you married last year you have a few more years before you need to worry about citizenship.

Should your husband still in prison when you are eligible to apply for citizenship you are facing a really big problem now.

Btw, a few more informations and maybe a filled out timeline would be good so people can help you more efficient.

Is your husband currently a permanent resident? If he is, it is entirely possible that he could lose his resident status and be deported after serving his prison time.

The current time line for a visa number is about 7 years, so a bit premature to be worrying about this.
