New Jersey Immigration Attorney Discusses Obtaining Permanent Resident Status for Your Fiance
A very common question that I have heard lately as a New Jersey Immigration Attorney has to do with an immigrant fiance. Very often, we help people obtain a fiance visa for their sweetheart abroad and then they come into the US under a K1 Visa. The next question is: what do we do now? How do they get their green card? It’s very important to remember that within 90 days of entering the US it is imperative that you get married in order to keep the fiance visa alive. I advise clients as a New Jersey Immigration Attorney that you marry within 90 days and then file the adjustment of status paperwork with the local immigration service and then approximately within three or four months time, you will be scheduled for your spouse interview.
Assuming that all goes well and you bring with you lots of bonafides of the marriage, proving that it’s a real marriage based on love and not just on friendship, your immigration interview will go well and the immigrant visa will be approved, the adjustment of status will be approved.
