Spons. as unmarried child over 21 but now engaged to American! Help pls!

Hello All,

If anyone could help, that would be great!

Here goes...

I recently had my interview in Montreal (for green card - as an unmarried daughter over 21 -sponsored by my mom who is a US Citizen and I am Canadian).

My Canada police certificate was not up to date so I will be mailing that in tomorrow. It seems to be pretty straight forward and

I should have my visa approved within the next couple of months.

Now here's my question: I recently got engaged to an American. However, on my visa application and interview, the US address given for future residence

was my mother's. She lives in California. My fiance lives in Chicago. Does it really matter which part of the US I move to? I prefer

to move to Chicago because that is where my fiance lives!

Also, am I legally able to get married to my American fiance as soon as I get my green card?

I just don't want there to be any problems and I don't want the gov't to think anything suspicious. This visa process was started even

before I met my fiance. Good grief!

Thanks in advance to any thoughts on this :)

you can move to wherever you want to and marry once you are in the US. There is nothing wrong marrying after the fact, the problem is if you lied and married and you didn't inform immigration that you had married and was approved as unmarried. as long as you marry after you enter the US there is no problem.

Ok, that puts my paranoid mind to rest! Yes, we are NOT married yet. I'm just glad that this visa is going to come through soon instead of going another route. Thanks for your reply! :)

Aleful is correct, no problems living somewhere else and being engaged. You just got lucky with your timing!
