Hello All

One of the points that the i130 form for my spouse's F2a application specifically question 21 states )if filing for the spouse, give the last address where you stayed together. From -to dates.

So i wanted to know is there any time limit i need to follow before filing fr i130 form. ? ie how soon i can file for her green card.?

Also after the wedding we are going to stay at my Mumbai family home for about 20 days after which I will be flying to the US. Is there any issue if we have lived only 20 days together. I work in the US on green card and hence we will be only staying together after wedding that too about 3 weeks.

Please let me know.



Thank You

I had to leave my husbands country a day after we got married so I literally only was with him after the marriage 24 hours so we hadn't lived together at all so on that part I searched on here and put what others put

"Have not yet lived together"

I had no issues we were approved , so if your staying together for three weeks put from the start date to the ends date it shouldn't be any issue
