5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


I'm an alien, Got in to United states through B1/B2 visa early 2015, I got married to my wife Nov, 2015,in Texas, it didnt work out right from day one and I met another lady and we both fell in love, we started living together January. During this time, I never filed for AOS with my ex. My lawyer advised that I get an annulment instead of a divorce. I got my annulment on 08/18/2016 and got my marriage license with my girlfriend Today, 08/19/2016. We are getting married next week. Here is my question:

1) Having married a new wife within days of my annulment, will it give me problems while applying for my AOS with the USCIS.

2) How soon can I file my AOS with my new wife without raising an eyebrow?

3) Since It was an annulment, do I have to disclose this to the USCIS?

4) My new wife wants to meet my family and she is willing to move to any state where the AOS filing process is fast so that I can get my green card in time and I can take her home...We are currently in Texas and I know Texas takes over a year to process...My friends suggested Chicago or IN.

Please I'm relying on your advice

What do you mean "take your wife home"? A green card is for living in the USA so the USA is your home. Are you planning on coming back?

If your wife is in a hurry to meet your family, they can apply for visitor visas and visit you. Or you wait for AP (advance parole) to be granted about 90 days after you file. You don't need the GC to travel, you can travel with the EAD/AP card.

Why are you so desperate to get a green card? Saying you and your wife will live to any state where it's faster? Really what state is that?

The AOS process to green card is taking 8 to 12 months regardless of your state.

I'm not desperate to get it, if I was I would have filed with my ex...secondly, Texas takes about 15months to get the and package done....I don't really think I'm making a mistake trying to get my aging parents to meet my wife....and my parents can't come here cos they old....travelling would pose a bigger risk to them....Of course we are coming back here.
