Need Help With Immigration Process

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

My wife is not a U.S citizen or resident. However, I (her husband) am a citizen and so is our son. We just had our first child who was born in Nashville, TN. My wife is going back to her country of residence with our son. My question is, how do I start her immigration process? What application do I have to fill? How long will it take for her green card to arrive? What is the application fees? And what documents are required? Would really appreciate any help regarding this.

 

Thanks & regards,

 

Omair.

Go up to the guides section in the blue bar and follow the instructions for a spousal visa.   It is currently running 12 to 14 months or more depending on which consulate.

Some reason she didn't adjust while here?

Another thing to consider is if she is leaving with your child, make sure she has a notarized letter with your permission to take your child out of the United States. Last thing you want is for her to catch a Kidnapping charge or something for leaving without your permission to have your and hers child with her.

Have you considered adjusting her status so she can stay in the US?

How did your wife pay for your son's delivery?  Did she get Medicaid?

Thank you guys. As for how I paid for the delivery: I was insured through my employers and was able to put her and my son on my insurance plan. We did consider adjusting her status from the US but decided against it since she had to go back to finish a project she's been working on and is very passionate about. My final question would be that If I fill out the IR1 Spusal Visa application, can I change the address on the application after submitting it? My lease will end in March 2020 and I will most likely end up moving to a new place. I was wondering if that would affect the application process?
