Marrying to Green Card Holder

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Thank you for tacking interest into my case. My fiance received her approval letter for green card as her sister put up her file 7 years back. She is in USA now and waiting for her green card. As soon as she will get her green card she will come to india and we will get married.I am an INDIAN citizen.

Can someone tell me how long will it take for her to receive her green card and after that how long will it take for me to enter in USA. I heard that the process is now speed up to 1 year from several years. I haven't found any clue on this.

Any help will be appreciated

thank you

It usually only takes a few weeks for her greencard to arrive in the mail, but can take up to 90 days.

There is currently a 3 year delay in visa priority dates for Indian spouses of permanent residents, and processing takes 5-8 months on top of that, so if you marry this summer and she petitions you immediately, plan for an interview and (hopefully) visa/ move to the USA in early 2015.
