B1 visa status adjustment

Recommended Posts

Hi ,

I am in USA on business visa B1 from last 1 month. Now my marriage is arranged with a US citizen in USA. Can I marry him in USA and apply for conditional GC .Will it be legal for me to get married on a B1 visa in USA and apply for status adjustment or should I go back and apply from my home country, Kindly suggest.

Thanks & Regards.

That would be construed as fraud if you attempt to change status here while coming on B1.  It is possible to get married but not to attempt to change status. You might as well get Married back home if the intent was to get married and change status here.

You can marry him anytime, anywhere.. that's your choice. Once you marry, exit the US (you should already have a return ticket) and have him petition you for a CR1 visa in your home country. 

Additionally, decide if you want an H1b or a CR1.
