A: The usual route is to apply for permanent residence for her. That can take about a year to complete. If she is in the US at any time, you can file for residence in the country and she can remain. An I-129 for a work visa may also be possible if she has an offer of employment from a US employer.
Q. Freelance Television Producer - can I travel internationally for work with a criminal background? What are my options?

Q. What is the best options of us couple (us citizen & dutch citizen) to immigrate to the USA from The Netherlands?
A: If you marry in the Netherlands, that will allow your US citizen spouse to sponsor you for lawful permanent residence. You would not lose your Dutch citizenship. It takes about a year to complete the process whether you do it in the U.S. or in the Netherlands. If you adjust your immigration status while in the U.S., you can obtain a work permit while the application is pending.
Q. Should my spouse correct wrong answers on her DS-260 Application after submission to the Consulate?
A: Have her submit a new DS-260 with the correct answers. Print out the barcode sheet and have her take it to the interview. She can explain the corrections at that time. You can also send an email to the Consulate asking for it to be forwarded to the IV Chief with the corrections explained.
Q. Hi so long story short- I am a US born citizen and my husband a UK born citizen. I want to apply for green card for him?
A: Since he entered on a visa, you can file concurrently. But, since he is leaving on December 1, this will not be enough time to obtain the advance parole document that he will need to return to the U.S. As such, the I-485 would be deemed abandoned and he would have to consular process to complete the residence process.
Q. Hello, I am international student and I have F1 visa and worried to extend my visa,,,,
A: This case should not affect your ability to apply for an extension of your F-1 visa. You should consult with an attorney about a possible U visa application based on the crime committed against you.
Q. My wife just got her conditional green card. Can we live abroad together for 3 years because of a job opportunity?
A: Maybe. She can apply for a reentry permit, which serves as the best evidence that she did not intend to abandon her residence while abroad. You should discuss your work plans with an attorney as she may qualify for Naturalization or a N-460 might help her while she is abroad.
Q. Hi there! What is the issue if my fiance had a wife 8/10 years ago and now we are planning to get married?
A: As long as he completed a divorce, then he is free to marry you. He will need a certified copy of the divorce decree to prove that he is free to marry, but it should not be a problem from an immigration perspective.
