pinay fiancee getting married to CDN citizen working in USA

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am a CDN citizen with a USA green card. I am engaged to a Philippina lady. How do I do this? If I bring her into Canada, well I dont live there......but i am Canadian and she wants to get her CDN citizenship. If I bring her to the USA, where I live and work, she won't qualify for status in Canada or the USA (I don't think, as I am not a citizen of the USA)....

Should we get married in the Philippines? and apply to have her come ...where? Canada? where i am not.. or the USA? where I work and live but am not a citizen...??

Any advice?

if you are an LPR, you can bring your fiancee to the US by marrying her in the Philippines and file a petition for spousal visa (1-130 Petition for Alien Relative) but as far as i know, it takes like 5 years or so for LPR spousal visa unlike if you are a US citizen, it only takes like more or less a year..

No Fiance(e) option for LPR's. "K" visas are petitionable by USC's only... Marriage based visa is petitionable for LPR but it will be a long time... How soon before you can naturalize (should you want to of course)?
