Recommended Posts

Hi, I am getting  marriage in Feb 2022  .My Fiancé is not in USA. As Green card holder cannot bring/sponsor  spouse .I need advise in my situation .I have my 140 approved and my priority date is current.

I have my H1 valid up to 2023.

Can I  add Spouse to my GC application , in between process from EAD approved stage to GC approval.


As my PD is current , If I GC approved what are my options to bring spouse to US.

A spouse is never added to a GC application.

If you get the GC before marriage you can sponsor your spouse in the Family 2A category, which is current right now.

If you marry before you get the GC your spouse can use the well-known follow-to-join process to get a GC through Consular Processing.

Discuss your situation with your immigration lawyer.
