Permanent Residence Following a Marriage
After you have said your vows, there is still much to do to ensure that the non-U.S. citizen will be legally allowed to live in the United States. Applications must be submitted in a timely manner in order to prevent any delays. The sponsoring U.S. citizen must first file Form I-130 with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, effectively notifying them of the relationship between both individuals. Once approved, there are a series of steps that must be completed, including an interview and a submission of documents. This process can be difficult for many, therefore, having an experienced attorney by your side is highly recommended.
Since obtaining a green card through marriage is one of the easiest ways to gain residency in the United States, many individuals enter into a fraudulent marriage in their attempt. Due to this, applicants are often heavily scrutinized during the application process. Our legal team can help you prepare for every step of the process.
USCIS accepts various forms of evidence that establish your marriage, including:
- Financial statements that demonstrate a co-mingling of assets and debts
- Proof of joint ownership
- Lease documents for a shared residence
- Birth certificates of shared children

In addition to helping you with Form I-130, we can help you gather all the required documents and ensure your petition is as strong as possible. You can rely on us to provide you with the strong representation you need.
