Hello,

For anyone who might have been through this scenario, (in particular dealing with Ukraine) I, as a U.S. Citizen, if after my fieance comes to the States, we are married, if we both want to go to Ukraine to live for an X-amount of time, is it possible for both her and I? If there were some unorthodox reason for this, would it be possible? Will she retain any of her U.S. documents and rights, even after receiving a Green Card, is that possible for her, and I as a citizen of the U.S. to go to Ukraine to live, let's say for 4-5 years?

Please inform if you've got experience.

Tnx.

If your wife leaves for several year before obtaining her US citizenship she will lose her LPR (Green Card) status.

No, a greencard holder must be resident in the USA. There are a couple of rare exceptions (eg working for the government) but in general, she is likely to loose her greencard status if she does what you propose. Best thing is to marry, live in the USA together for 3 years, then naturalise. Once she is a US citizen she can live where she wants.

The whole purpose of the Green Card is to reside permanently in the US. If you guys would like to live in the Ukraine for 4 or 5 years, just forget the AOS for now, move after the honeymoon and file for an IR-1 visa via DCF when you are ready to move to the US permanently.


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.

Have you checked on what you need to do in order to stay in Ukraine for 4-5 years? Have you checked on how long it takes to get your "blue" card? Doable, but not as simple as you might hope...


YMMV
