Can anyone tell me how I am supposed to file for my husband? He is a Canadian or Bermudian (hes half an half lol) citizen and we have been married since 11/24/06. He came to the US as a visitor 11/22/07 and now we would like to file his paper work so he can work here. I am not sure which forms to fill out to be quite honest. A lawyer wants $4000 and is insisting on us going back to the border to get an I-94? form and when we were at the border they told us we dont need that form for him to come in. So I have no idea what steps to take now besides paying the lawyer. Any advice?

:help:

Sounds to me like you have to do a K3 visa, which is to bring in a foreign husband or wife. That is, if he's wanting to stay and move here with you and not go back home after his visit.

Have you read the guides?

He can't just stay here permanently if he's only entered as a tourist right now. There are temporary work visas for tourists but they probably take some time (weeks or over a month) to be authorized. But everything you guys do has to go through the proper channels.

Is your goal to get your husband a green card? If so then you need to file an I-130 petition (CR-1/IR-1) to apply. As for the dual citizenship I am not sure about that, but I don't think it would be an issue. I would call USCIS and ask them about your case. Call this number: 1-800-375-5283 Options: 1-2-4-5-5-6 and you can speak to a human. ;)

By the way, you can't file a K-3 until you file your I-130 as far as I know.

But without more details and what you are wanting to end up with for your husband I can't give anymore advice then this.

The I-130 isn't for citizenship. Its for a Legal Permanent Residence Visa (LPR). From your last reply you would need to file an I-130 (Petition for Alien Relative), you could file for a K-3 as well but not without first filing the I-130 (and supporting evidence).

EDIT:

You can find the K-3 info here: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.ph...mp;page=k3guide

and the I-130 info here: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.ph...page=i130guide1

You have to file the I-130 either way, the K-3 is just supposed to let your husband come and wait out the process here. Though it varies as to weather the K-3 will actually let your spouse come any sooner then just an I-130.

You should read through those and some of the other info on this site to decide what is the best solution for you.

Good luck on your visa journey! :)

He wants to live here permanently and be able to work. Citizenship isnt the main goal, Just being able to work and live here is. Thank you for all the help!

if he is Canadian Citizen - holding canadian passport - he can apply for T1 or TN1 visa for NAFTA countries. it might be simpler for him to stay and work here while u figure out the sponsorship process in the USA ( assuming you are a US citizen)

cheers
