How long it takes for GC holder wife to immigrate to US?

Friend of mine recently got his 10 year green card. He would like to marry girl from his native country. Once they are married – how soon can she immigrate to US?

Will they adjust her status sooner if they get married in US vs. native country?

About 5 years for LPR to bring a spouse.

If she comes to the US on another visa with intentions to marry and stay and tries to adjust status it will be considered fraud!

Really? WOW! I didn’t have any idea that it can take such a long time. What I see here are dates for China, India, Mexico and Philippines.

Where can I find Visa Bulletin for my country? The waiting time might be much less.

Absolutely, the fastest way to bring a spouse over to the US is by becoming a US citizen. Otherwise, it will certainly take at least 5 years.

Waiting time is about 5 years indeed. Why doesn't your friend wait until attaining citizenship and then apply? or apply now and upgrade application when she becomes a citizen

Fraud will not even be a factor as a spouse of an LPR is PROHIBITED from simply adjusting from inside the USA... No basis.

it is on the bulletin... under All Charge- ability Areas Except Those Listed (so it is for all other countries other than China, India, Mexico and Philippines).


YMMV

If your friend just received his GC he would be eligible for Citizenship in 5 years. Same as petitioning now.

Faster way but no advisable join the military and you will be eligible for citizenship in 3 years.

Please anyone correct me if I am wrong.
