If you have successfully filed your asylum application with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or have your asylum application pending in immigration court, your case may be pending for several years. This is because there are significant backlogs in asylum offices and immigration courts. Although beginning from 2018, asylum offices began a new policy trying to schedule interviews for new cases within 21 days, due to the limited resources, not all new cases get scheduled so soon and some still get thrown into the pile of backlogged cases. This new procedure also caused even longer delays to those cases that were filed prior to the USCIS's new policy.
Will My Immigrant Spouse Become a U.S. Citizen Automatically?
Sorry, but no. An immigrant who marries a U.S. citizen must apply for a green card (U.S. permanent residence). This is a long process involving many forms and documents. The immigrant can be refused entry if he or she is found inadmissible, perhaps because of a medical problem, criminal history, past immigration violations, or the U.S. immigration authorities' belief that your marriage is a fraud to get a green card.
After successfully obtaining a green card, the immigrant spouse can, after three years as a permanent resident, apply for U.S. citizenship. (This assumes that you're still married and living together when the immigrant applies. If not, the waiting period changes to five years.)
We're Not Married Yet: How Can My FiancÃ© Get a FiancÃ© Visa?
A fiancÃ© visa grants permission to a non-U.S. citizen who is engaged to marry a U.S. citizen to enter the United states for the purpose of getting married. In order for your fiancÃ© to get a fiancÃ© visa, you will need to file a petition on Form I-129F with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
If the petition is approved it will then be forwarded to the U.S. consulate in the immigrant's home country for review. The review process could take several months. An interview with the applicant will be scheduled to take place at the consulate.
If all goes well at the interview, the fiance visa (K-1) will be issued. Once the fiancÃ© visa is issued, the immigrant has six months in which to use it to enter the U.S., and then another 90 days in which to get married. It's best to get married early in your stay if the immigrant wishes to apply to adjust status (get a green card), because you'll need an official government certificate proving the marriage in order to submit the adjustment of status application.
To learn more about the K-1 visa, see the eligibility requirements and overview of the process.
Are There Any Regulations About Our Finances?
Yes, the immigration law of 1996 outlines specific financial requirements for U.S. citizens who marry non-US citizens who will apply for a green card. The U.S. citizen will need to fill out a Form I-864 Affidavit of Support, which proves the ability to support the immigrant at a level above the U.S. Poverty Guidelines. In fact, the citizen will need to promise the U.S. government to support the non-U.S. spouse for approximately ten years.
If the U.S. citizen doesn't have enough income and assets to support the immigrant at the required level, you may need to find a household member or other person in the U.S. to promise support. The immigrant's own assets can be counted, as well. But it won't help for the immigrant to get a job offer in the United States.
What if My FiancÃ© Overstayed a Visa or is "Out of Status"?
The process of helping a spouse immigrate is much easier for citizens than green card holders. That's partly because a visa is immediately available to the spouse of a citizen (who is an "immediate relative," in immigration law terms).
The combination of your status as a U.S. citizen and the fact that your spouse entered the U.S. with inspection (on a visa) as opposed to having crossed the border or otherwise evaded inspection by immigration officials, gives your spouse an important procedural right: to "adjust status" in the U.S., that is, to file his or her green card application at an office of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and attend his or her interview at a local USCIS office. All of this can be done regardless of the length of time the visa was expired, and without leaving the U.S. for a U.S. consulate. (In fact, you should avoid at all costs having your spouse leave the U.S. until receiving the green card, for reasons of the "three- and ten-year time bars described next.)
Contrast that with the situation faced by spouses of lawful permanent residents. You'd be able to start the process of his or her immigrating just as soon as you're married, by filing USCIS Form I-130 -- but that only puts your spouse on the waiting list. Several years might then go by, during which your spouse will be accruing "unlawful presence" in the United States and could be picked up and deported at any time. Worse yet, when the wait is over and it's time to apply for a green card, your spouse will NOT be able to adjust status, but will have to leave the U.S. to attend an interview at a U.S. consulate -- where, as punishment for time spent in the U.S. unlawfully, your spouse can be barred from return for three or ten years. For details on this, see Three-Year and Ten-Year Time Bars for Unlawful U.S. Presence.
What Forms Do I Need to Complete?
That's a complicated question, the answer to which depends on various factors such as whether you're married yet, whether the immigrant lives in the U.S. or overseas, and if the immigrant lives in the U.S., whether he or she is actually eligible to use the procedure known as Adjustment of Status. You can count on filling out several forms! You may want to consult an immigration lawyer to help you determine the best way to proceed.
Should I See a Lawyer?
If you're confused or intimidated by the information above, you've probably already got an idea of why contacting an immigration attorney might be a good idea. Immigration laws are notoriously complicated, and the application procedures a forest of paperwork and arcane rules.
The immigration attorney can help you:
Figure out your spouse's basic eligibility for a visa or green card
Make sure some bit of history or problem of status won't impact his or her right to apply for the green card
Prepare the immigration forms and gather the correct documents
Prove the legitimacy of your relationship and marriage
Attend your immigration interview(s)
Unlike some types of attorneys, immigration attorneys often charge flat fees for basic services such as assistance with obtaining a marriage-based green card. That means you won't have to worry that the hours will tick by and you'll end up paying a million dollars in legal fees. Instead, you can price compare at the outset. Of course, that doesn't mean you should go with the cheapest attorney you find. Make sure you sign up with an actual attorney (not a "notary public" for example), who is experienced in these matters and who you're comfortable working with.
