GREEN CARD THROUGH MARRIAGE TO A PERMANENT RESIDENT
The following steps outline the process for getting your spouse permanent resident status:-
Step One: File the Petition.
The U.S. citizen or permanent resident must petition for his/her spouse to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) using Form I-130. Form I-130 is proof of you marriage. The U.S. citizen will also have to prove he is a U.S. citizen. Form G-325A details biographic information about both spouses and photos will have to submit of both spouses as well.
Step Two: Immigrant Visa Number
Once the petition is approved, the immigrant must wait for an immigrant visa number. If you marry a U.S. citizen, you are considered an immediate relative and the wait is only as long as the administrative process. If, however, you marry a Lawful Permanent Resident, you will be placed in category 2A of the family visa category and you may have to wait several years depending on the number of people from your home country also waiting for visas in that category.
Step Three: Medical Examination
Similar to all other types of green cards, the immigrant spouse will have to attend a medical examination and submit biometric information.
Step Four: Affidavit of Support
The petitioning spouse will also have to submit an affidavit of support which guarantees the United States government that you and spouse can financially support yourselves and your family. The spouse already in the United States has to prove the household income is enough to support the entire family at 125% or more above the U.S. poverty level for your family’s size.
