Green Card Through Marriage

To obtain a green card through your spouse, there are a few permutations. If your spouse is a permanent resident or a United States citizen, your spouse will file an I-130 petition for you. This petition will typically include evidence of a bona fide marriage relating to your relationship and will also include but is not limited to other important documents such as your marriage certificate and evidence of your spouse’s status as a permanent resident or US Citizen.

Sometimes, you can apply for adjustment of status even if you are out of status. If you were previously admitted into the country with inspection (such as a visa), you will be eligible for adjustment of status. Keep in mind, that everyone’s case is different and previous criminal records or issues of inadmissibility can affect your case.

In order to become a U.S. citizen, you must remain married and wait 3 years after you obtain your green card. If you and your partner divorce, you must wait 5 years as a permanent resident (green card holder).

In the current political climate, immigration is now harder than ever, and green card interviews will be conducted with great detail. These are to be taken seriously, as they can severely impact your status as a future citizen. It is essential you remain honest no matter the circumstances, as you will be asked a number of extremely personal questions regarding your marriage, in order to verify that you and your spouse are not attempting to commit fraud.
