STUDENT VISA AND AOS AFTER MARRIAGE

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! Question here... I don't think this is the only case, there must be some more people in the same situation:

A friend of mine from Venezuela has been to the US for 2 years with a student visa (she goes to college here) but she got married 2 weeks ago with an American citizen. They asked me how I have been doing with my AOS. My case is very different since I arrived with a K-1 visa. So I don't know what to answer to her, and they don't have a clue about where to start. Which should be the first steps for them to take?

Thanks!!! :help:

cami&josh,

If she wants to immigrate your friend and her husband can start by looking at the Getting Green Cards section of the USCIS web site. In short, he submits and I-130 petition for her and she concurrently submits an I-485 application to adjust status.

Specifically what type is her visa? The alphameric designation.

Hi Yodrak! Thanks for replying... I think the student visa is F-1. But she's already here, so how could she do? Would she have to leave the country and start a whole K-3 process???

She can apply for I-130 and AOS while she is here.. there are a few other people on the board (kezzie, clmarsh and jayjay who didn't go the k1/3 route and adjusted from here) I didn't do it that way but i'm sure there is plenty of info here somewhere!

My husband is also on F-1 (student visa). As far as I know, the only thing that's different is that they'll need to file the I-130, petition for alien relative, along with the I-485 (AOS). My husband is not leaving the country. His visa has not yet expired, and we are already in the process of AOS. I would probably advise, though, that your friend file the AOS before her visa expires. Just in case! :)
