Green card holder marrying Indian Citizen
I have a troublesome situation for which I need some help and potentially some legal inputs:
I am a green card holder with a priority date of april 2006.
I am planning to get married to an Indian citizen with no visa to USA (in fact, I tried to marry her before my green card got approved, but the way things turned out, I couldnt).
I now see that the priority for FB 2A is Aug/2010. If I were to marry her in Dec, can I file for her FB green card right away? How long would it take for her to the approval?
She is also working with her indian employer (software firm) to file for her H1B and/or B1. But, it is taking a long time.
Would a visitor visa or any other mechanism be possible? Could you please help me understand and fix my situation.
Can i go to India for a longer duration? How long can I move back to India without hurting my green card?
Check recent visa bulletin. Now a days, bringing spouse by Citizen and GC holders are of not much difference. Go to India and do the marriage, and come back and file I-130. December bulletin calling for August 2010 filers. Forget about H1B and F1.
Family-Based - "2A" refers to the first subcategory of the Second Preference in Family-Based Immigration category, i.e., spouses or unmarried children under age 21 of permanent residents;
Proud to be Indian and American resident.
GREEN CARD APPROVED IN EB2
I am not a lawyer. This is my personal opinion.
