Can the husband mail out the application while the wife is in the US with B2 visa?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My friend "A" got married in Japan. Her husband "B" lives in the US. 

 

"A" just came to the US with B2 visa, she is planning on going back to work in Japan.

Can "B" mail out the application forms and documents while "A" is still in the US?

"A" has no plan to wait for her green card in the US.

Should "A"  go back to Japan before "B" mail out the green card application?

 

Thanks.

The only stipulation is that you must be married.......there are no other restrictions as to when or from where the package can be mailed.

It is inferred because the form asks if the beneficiary is currently in the US. Further down the form it asks if the beneficiary is planning on staying in the US .. adjusting status ... or returning to home country and using Consular processing

Thanks. I just found this on I 130 form. The NOTE means"if the beneficiary choose to the US to process the case, the USCIS might not process the case? "

You are misinterpreting the note. Nowhere doesn't say USCIS doesn’t process. The note means you are choosing not go for AOS within the US but to apply for visa interview abroad. There is another note before that where you can choose that beneficiary will go for AOS in the US.

 

Those notes are from petitioner telling the USCIS not the other way around.

For instance: Canada had many US consulates but ONLY the one in Montreal (not even the embassy in Ottawa) processes immigrant visas.
