F2B - Unmarried son - bring my fiance and kids

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Need your help please. I was petitioned by my mother under F2B (Unmarried Son) and has already been approved. I'm still single but I have 2 kids with my fiancé. I was able to apply my 2 kids as a derivative so they will be able to come with me to the US. My fiancé has a tourist visa and can visit US anytime. My question is, once I already have my green card in the US, can my fiancé visit us and get married in the US then file a F2A visa? Or is it better if I go back to India and get married there then file a F2A visa? Thank you.

Either option is fine, whatever works better for you, but she cannot stay in the USA with her tourist visa after the marriage; she would need to go back to India and wait the 2+ years until the immigration visa is ready; she can visit, but not live/ work in the USA during that time.

Tourist Visa is for visiting only. So therefore using it to enter the United States for marriage would be Visa Fraud.

Unless of course he has returned back home.

I am not sure how long F2A takes, but that's probably your best bet.
