  1. Hello everybody, I am currently living in the United States and working with an H1B visa. My company recently offered me an option to get a green card through a sponsorship program. I am sharing my life with another foreigner (we are not married) which does not have any kind of long term visa for the US (F1). My question is, how can he get the benefits of my (supposedly) green card ? Do we need to get married before, during, or after the green card application process ? I've been told the Green Card process in my case would likely take 2 years, so how much time would that take for him to get the ability to work and travel freely from and to the United States ? Thank you for your answers !
  2. Hi! Just want to ask how long does it take to get your marriage certificate? Because my 90days will expire on January 10,2020 and our wedding is on January 5,2020. How many days till I get the marriage cert so I can submit it along with other forms. thank you in advance
  3. My fiance had her k1 visa interview yesterday at the US embassy in Manila. I am active duty Navy and we are wanting to get married while I am on Chrismas leave in Denver. We want her mother to be able to attend. From the travel docs website the next available apointment for b2 visa interview is 23 January which is after our planned wedding. Is there any way around this. We wanted to apply for the B2 after her K1 was approved but it appears we are late. Any help would be appreciated.
  4. Hello! My fiancé and I have been together for 7 years and I have been going back and forth in the US but now I entered with a j1 visa. He finally proposed and we plan to get married before my contract ends with the help of a lawyer. Can we invite my parents to attend the wedding if my fiancé will write the letter since he's the citizen? What are the chances of them getting approved or denied? Thank you!
  5. Hi all. Im starting to plan my wedding and I just wanted to know, does my witness need to be an American/LPR or can it be a member of my family/friends who will be part of my bridal party?? Please and TIA 🙂
  6. My interview is about to happen in a month, I'm collecting all my paperwork and I'm so excited and nervous!! The thing is, my fiance and I got married in a catholic church last September. We did that because my family can't travel to the US and his family can't come over, so, from the beginning we decided to have 2 weddings... a religious one here and a legal one there. In Mexico, a religious wedding isn't considered legally valid by itself, so, we aren't in a marriage recognized by the government. I wanted to submit our wedding pictures as evidence that proves we are a real couple, but I have been wondering if it would affect our case. I am thinking about getting a "not married status certificate" to support that evidence. I guess my question is: should I do that or should I avoid the whole not legally married thing and not submit the pics? Thank you for your help!!!
  7. Hey guys, I've applied for my SSN almost a month ago and it's still not ready. We are getting married next week. Would me getting married interfere with my application for my SSN? I called the office and they told me it should take two more weeks, but we are getting married before that. Thanks!
  8. Hi all! My UK partner and I are planning to get married in a few months and then start the CR-1 process (decided against the K1 because we didn't want to deal with the AoS wait where he could not work or leave the country!). I am currently in the US after living abroad with him for a number of years; he is still in the UK. The trouble is...we aren't sure where we can even get married! We were planning on doing it in the UK but it turns out we would both need to be resident there for 7 days, and then give 28 days notice to the registrar before we could even get married-- I can't be away from work for that long! It looks like it is legal for him to come over as a tourist under his ESTA, get married in the US, and then head back home so I can get the visa process started (I know AoS from a tourist visa is a big no-no, and we wouldn't be interested in that anyway as we'd be in the same boat as the K1). my question is--- does anyone have any suggestions for slightly more interesting places to get married that don't have residency requirements? I have been googling around but it looks like a lot of places have restrictions on getting legally married within their borders. Another issue will be receiving the various affidavits/apostilles from our home countries stating that we are legally able to wed; it is very complicated! We are basically eloping-- no family or friends and just a civil ceremony, so we thought it would be nice to combine it with our "honeymoon" and make a bit of an adventure of it before being apart while waiting for the CR1. Open to any interesting suggestions! Especially places easily accessible from the US or Europe and where we'd be able to get by in English!! Where did you get married to your international spouse? Especially when you were engaged in two different countries? thanks all! Happy almost holidays!
