Hey guys, I have a cousin who is permanent resident. he wants to go back to india and get married. from my research i believe it takes 3-5 years for his wife to come here. he wanted schedule an appointment with an immigration attorney, but i think i would get better answers here. My question is that, is there a faster route he can go? what would work best for him?

any help would be appreciated.

thanks

p.s: also sorry for making gazillion threads lately.

A LPR does have to wait years like you mentioned. If he files as an LPR and then gets citizenship as soon as he can that would upgrade his petition up and it would process faster.

he has only been in US for a year or so. what kind of visa would he apply for his spouse? "lpr"?? what is that?

LPR stands for legal permanent resident, or greencard holder.

There is no fiance visa for LPRs, just spousal visas.

As the others have said, getting citizenship is the only way to speed up the process.

The quickest way is for your cousin to become a citizen, other than that the wait is around 5-6 years. Another thing is why do you not ahve your cousin join VJ? Then he can get his questions answered quickly also :D

and there is no such thing as a fiance' visa for a GC holder?
I did not read where anyone suggested this either.

Here is a great flyer that answers questions
