BCC (B1/B2) with CR1

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancée and I plan to file an I-130 for a CR1 visa once we are married. She is a Mexican citizen; I am a USC. She has a Border Crossing Card (B1/B2 visa; visitor's visa) currently. With this visa, would we be allowed to marry within the United States and have her return to Mexico that day or the following day? She would not live here -- she would only visit with her BCC until the CR1 is approved. We would apply for the CR1 only once she is back home in Mexico -- perhaps a week after marrying. I am only concerned with her violating the terms of her visa by marrying within the US under these conditions. Thanks :).

You can get married here and return home to adjust status. Whether or not border patrol would let her back in on a visitor visa is up to them, because they may think she won't go back to Mexico she'd have to prove ties...which may be hard with an immigration visa in work. Many people have had success though so I'm not discouraging from trying just stating reality. What she can't do is come with the intention of getting married and adjusting here.
