Return to the US before Spouse or With?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm a US Citizen currently living abroad with my husband (been here for about 4 years, together for 3.5, married for 5 months), and we filed the I-130 in December 2019 (woo!) while I'd love a response on our case by June/July, given other timelines from couples coming from the same country I'm not expecting to hear back until Sept/Oct of this year. Due to various factors, I may end up moving back to the US in November. While it will be super difficult to be apart for an unspecified amount of time, it might be a good way to get settled and get my feet under me again before my husband moves to the states as well. 

 

My question is this: Strictly from an immigration standpoint, is there an advantage or disadvantage to me moving back to the states before my husband after having submitted an I-130? (I will have a joint sponsor)

 

Thank you in advance for any advice, and in general to all the helpful people on this site! What a wonderful resource this is.

No advantage really, except it will satisfy any domicile concerns.  Even so, that's only usually a big issue coming from Canada.  You must enter the US at the same time as, or before your foreign spouse.
