Marriage on L-1 Visa then relocating abroad

4 posts in this topic

Hi. I wonder if anyone can provide some advice on my visa situation - specifically on AOS.

I'm a UK citizen who has been in the US for 2.5 years on a company sponsored L-1 visa and am due to marry my American fiance in January. Within a few weeks of the wedding we're both moving to Australia for work and in the long scheme of things will return to the US in around 5 years.

1. Do we need to apply for any permits or file any AOS prior to the wedding or are we ok to marry on the L-1?

2. Do we have to file an AOS, immediately the after the wedding, bearing in mind we'll be leaving the US within weeks?

3. From my reading around the subject it looks like I can carry on working on the L-1 visa until we move to Australia without filing an AOS - is this the case?

I guess what I'm ultimately hoping for is that we can pursue the AOS through the US embassy in Australia without having to file any paperwork in the hectic few weeks post-wedding --- is this the case?

Any help would be appreciated!

Cheers,

Peter

I don't believe you have to do anything if your intention is to abandon your L-1 visa and have no intention of living in the US in the near future. You can file for a CR-1/IR-1 doing DCF in Australia at a later date when you decide to come back.

no adjustment of status required if you have no intention to reside... 5 years from now you can decide what you want to do...

FWIW, there is no AOS from a foreign country... Consulates issue visas... the USCIS issues the greencards


YMMV
