Eligibility for Travel on IW1 LPR

Recommended Posts

My fiancee had travelled to US 3 months back on IW1 visa. We want to know if her travel back for the wedding in a short period will have a negative impact. Since it's her first time travel outside US, what reasons she should quote to the embassy. Will this lead to any sort of denial when she files IR1 petition for me?

Please advise

I don't think marrying after she got her permanent residency has any negative effects. To immigrate as a widow, she just had to have not remarried at the time she got her permanent residency; there is no requirement that she remain unmarried afterwards.

Note that when she petitions you, you will be in the F2A category as a spouse of a permanent resident; you will not be in the Immediate Relative category.
