AOS from a student visa

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am a US citizens currently engaged to a woman who recently entered the US on a student F1 visa. She previously was in the US from 2004-2010 on a diplomatic A visa, and then a student visa before leaving prior to the completion of her studies, which is how we originally met, in college. We didn't date in college but remained in sporadic contact after her departure back to Yemen. When she made plans to come back to the US to complete her degree we made plans to meet up and hang out since I still live in the area, and we'd see where things may go while she was here. Well, things have gone very well and we're getting married tomorrow.

I know about the paperwork that needs to be filed and all of that. Is there anything else we should watch out for? I'm afraid that she'll get accused of visa fraud if they think she came here to marry me rather than to actually attend courses because the marriage would take place so quickly after her arrival in July. Thoughts?

It is a little soon.

Did you propose to her after she got here? That could explain how she didn't intend to stay and then changed her mind because of the proposal.

Yes. I proposed a week ago. About a month after she arrived. Nothing has changed regarding her enrollment in courses.
