Question For A Female Friend...

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Assalaamu'Alaykum Wa Rahmataullaah/Salutations:
I hope this finds you all well. I have a quick question... One of my female friends is here in Saudi Arabia, and she is married to a Saudi Arabian man. However, she wants to do the process for him to become a permanent resident (green card holder) just for certain reasons. What does she need to do? What is the process like? How long will it take? She has a job and makes a nice amount of money, so the financial part is doable for her. Is there anything else she needs to do?

Sincerely,

Saudiwife

Of course there is something else she needs to do.

1. File the spouse visa petition. (CR1)

2. Establish her domicle in the USA.

3. Depends on if she's a US citizen or Green card holder, the process will take about a year or two years.

 

Also... for what "certain reasons" she wants her husband to have a green card? Because there is usually just one reason - move permanently to the USA.
