FOR AN IMMIGRANT ABROAD MARRIED TO A U.S. CITIZEN
The U.S. citizen first applies for his/her spouse’s alien relative petition. upon approval certain categories are current, meaning that the permanent residence can be applied for immediately. for example the spouse of a Us citizen. other categories go on a priority waitlist. An example is the adult child of a Us citizen. After the case is approved and is current, the Department of State handles the matter and when the paperwork is finished it is transferred to a US Consulate abroad.
The Department of State will require the US citizen or permanent resident’s affidavit of support, a police clearance and copies of documents. An online visa form must also be completed.
If the applicant committed a crime or overstayed in the U.S., it may affect the immigration process.
Each crime and overstay should be evaluated. Please call us for an evaluation.
