Someone just told me that once (if) I get my K1 visa, and am married in the US, I have to return to the UK for 9-18 months to change my circumstances and finally allowed to move to the US permanently?

Can someone please tell me the truth and what does happen after we are married.

Thanks guys

After you get married in the United States, you file for AOS (Adjustment of Status) here in the U.S. It can take quite a while to process, but you stay here. You would only leave the country if you filed for AP (Advanced Parole) which would allow you to travel while the AOS is being processed and before you get your Green Card.

Oh good LORD, no! Put that right out of your head this instant. The others who've responded are right. Once you've gotten married here in the States, you'll file for Adustment of Status to Permanent Resident (AOS). Granted, AOS is a giant pain in the rear, from what everyone tells me, but you DEFINITELY don't have to go back to the UK while you're going through it. That would just be the living end!!! Breathe easy. Once you're here, you're very likely here to stay. :D

January 2004: Met Laurent at the Bibliothèque nationale in Paris

February 2004: We became an actual couple

January 29th, 2006: I left France to return to the United States--AWFUL to say goodbye!

June 2006: Finally convinced Laurent that a K-1 visa would be more time-effective than trying to get an H-1

August 1st, 2006: The K-1 petition is finally in the mail and on its way to Nebraska...WooHoooo!! And yes, I remembered to attach the check! :-)

August 3rd, 2006: USPS online tracking shows that my petition (sent certified) was received at the NSC at 5:05am

August 14th, 2006: NOA1 received USPS!! (I-129F recv'd at CSC: 8/4; NOA date: 8/10; last touched: 8/11)

October 2nd, 2006: I MISTAKENLY thought we had an approval...False alarm...Back to waiting...

October 3rd, 2006: TOUCHED!!

October 4th, 2006: REALLY AND TRULY APPROVED!!! Email notification lists 10/3 as the NOA2 date.

Later that same day: TOUCHED...AGAIN! Hope that means I'm in a cozy box and moving to NVC this week...

October 10th, 2006: Received official NOA2 via snail mail.

October 19th, 2006: Case received at NVC!! AWESOME!!

October 20th, 2006: Case forwarded to Paris!! DHL says two shipments were headed that way. Must be in there somewhere...

October 27th, 2006: Received official receipt letter from NVC via USPS.

I don't understand where you got that.

Once you get your K1 visa and enter US and get married in US within 90 days, you can not leave US until you have a AP or changed your status. (If you leave, you will not be able to enter. )

You for sure won´t have to go back.

But like the poster from before said so you need to go through the process of AOS.

we just don´t know why so many people say the AOS could become a giant pain in the rear.

The AOS will ajust your status from conditional residence to unconditional permanent residence and at this point you also will apply for working permission and social security card.

After 2 more years you will get an invitation for another interview and you guys will have to prove once again you are still living together. We heard about that interview can be a pain in the rear but if you still will be doing fine in your marriage and you will have evidence of you are living together so that shouldn´t cause any bigger problems either. After you will have passed that interview you will get issued your Green Card.

If anyone knows better so please feel free to correct us.

Good Luck

When you are approved at AOS interview you will become a conditional resient (unles you have been married for 2years+ at the time of interview) 2years after you bcome a conditional resident you have to file to remove conditions... if approved you will become a permenent resident.

You will be interviewed by USCIS after filing for AOS and there is a small chance that you could be interviewed again when you file to lift conditions but most people are not...

You file for permision to work (EAD) and travel (AP) along with your AOS... once you have been approved for AOS you do not need EAD or AP as Greencard hilders can work and travel on their greencard...
