Can my fiance go back to school in his home country?

Hello -

My fiance and I are applying for a K1. After we get married (fingers crossed with the visa!), can he go back to Canada for one semester of school to graduate? We would get married in May, and he'd hopefully go back in January the following year.

Thanks in advance!

One semester meaning less than 6 months? No problem at all, once he has the actual greencard.

Yes (January-April) - do you think we'd have to file any specific paperwork, or just declare it when he goes back to Canada? Otherwise, if you have a resource I should check out, that'd be awesome, too!

Thank you SO much! :)

declare what with who?

Declare that he's coming back to the States when he's done - USCIS? (I'm sure he'll have to say something at the border crossing.) I'm new to this, so I'm not sure if we need to tell anyone beyond saying his re-entry date. We don't want him to get into trouble, even if he'll only be gone a couple months.

Nevermind - I just read the FAQ saying if he's going to be out for more than 12 months, he needs to file re-entry. I apologize!

No need to say or do anything, especially if it's for under 6 months. By all means, if they ask him why he was out, tell the truth, but they are unlikely to even ask.

Thank you so much! I really appreciate your help! This board has been so helpful, especially since this is such a stressful process :)
