B 2 VISA

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm in the states from Ireland on a B2 pleasure visa. What forms should i file to live here. My boyfriend has offered to get married (he is a citizen).

I have been trying to live here for almost a year as all my family mother included are citizens, but now live in Ireland. The waiting list to do it through my mother is five years and is not guaranteed as she is not a resident. I also have a great job, in a small company that i want to keep, but cant stay in the states 5yrs on my pleasure visa waiting on the long waiting list through my mother. What to do?

Cheers

Sam

You can file the fiance visa but you'll have to return back to Ireland (assuming you are looking into the fiance visa since you posted in that forum)

You can stay in the US as long as the CBP authorized you to on your I-94.

Good luck

That doesn't really sound like a marriage for love. If he "offered" to get married in order to get you immigration benefits, it's a slippery slope. Keep in mind that Adjustment of Status is only the first step. Less than 2 years later you'll have to file for Removal of Conditions and provide solid evidence that you guys have been living together in harmony and intermingled housing, finances, and taxes.

I have been trying to live here for almost a year as all my family mother included are citizens, but now live in Ireland. The waiting list to do it through my mother is five years and is not guaranteed as she is not a resident.

You are an immediate relative of your mother. I take it you are over 21 years of age?

I also have a great job, in a small company that i want to keep, but cant stay in the states 5yrs on my pleasure visa waiting on the long waiting list through my mother. What to do?

Your job is in the United States, and you've taken it on a "pleasure visa?"

Sam, looks like you want to get married for the wrong reasons. While it may be tempting to go that route, I can assure you that being married just for a Green Card and having to stay married for several years and do everything together is not as easy as it may seem. I have an acquaintance who did this and they fight constantly and both of their lives are hell on Earth. You may want to think long and hard before signing on the dotted line.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.
