and why didn't you file the i130 immediatly when you became a resident? you lost 2 years of precious time, she could have been here in a few months, next year. now you have to file for her and the wait is over 2 years. there is no shorter way for a LPR, unless she comes on a work or student visa.

the i130 wouldn't have hurt that petition, so now you have to file the i130 and wait.

If I apply now for 1-130 can she apply later for visitor visa until she gets her approval I mean is there anyway to come and go back until she gets her paper done?!

Sorry to hear of your loss. The I-130 is necessary to get her here quickest with your current immigration status.

Apply for I-130 (F2A-Spouse of LPR/Green Card Holder) as soon as possible. Waiting time is at least 2 YEARS.

She can also apply for a tourist visa before or after you file the i-130 but there's a 50/50 chance she'll get it.

If she gets a tourist visa, she cannot stay beyond 6 months (or the time limit of a tourist visa) because immediate relatives of Green Card Holders cannot adjust status in the US, only immediate relatives of US citizens are allowed to do that.

Good luck.

Maan, go to the top of this page and click on the "guides." You need to file a spousal visa for her. Because you are a permanent resident, you'll have to wait awhile. Read on this forum for details.

I would bet a lot of money that she will never be approved for a visitor visa. Why would they give her one? She has a husband in the USA and intends to live here. There's just no chance. You can try, of course, but I think you're wasting the money.

File the spousal visa as soon as you can (if your case is uncomplicated, you don't need a lawyer; you just need to be able to follow instructions very carefully). I wish you the best of luck.
