I am an B-1
visa visitor. I am planning to
marry a U.S. Citizen. What is the difference between marrying a U.S.
Citizen in my home country or in the U.S.? How long will we be apart to
get Green Card?
If you marry a U.S. citizen in
States, you may face a longer waiting time to get Green Card, but you
will be able to stay together while you wait.
If you chose
to immigrate from outside the United States after your marriage abroad
to a U.S. Citizen, the waiting time to get Green Card is shorter,
ranging anywhere from a few months to a year. But you will be separated
except for when your U.S. spouse can visit you abroad.
