Greencard for Spouse of US Citizen

Recommended Posts



I'm a novelist working on my 5th book, and was wondering if you'd be able to help with a few Green Card-related questions. I will gratefully acknowledge you in my book. 

The premise is that a US citizen of Indian origin (but born in the US) travels to India with a PIO card, with the intention of staying in India for a year. While there, he marries an Indian woman. My questions:

* Can they travel back together to the US while the Green Card is being processed? If not, how long (on average) till the processing is done?

* How long till the wife's GC is processed?

* How long till she can start working?

* If the wife has a child from another marriage, and the the husband adopts this female child, can the man sponsor both his wife and adopted daughter for the GC? How long till this comes through?

Thank you SO much for any help you can give me.
