Misconceptions About Marriage Based Immigration
It is a common belief that a spouse of an American citizen simply becomes a citizen after marriage. In fact, there are challenges to prove that a marriage is legitimate and not for the purpose of obtaining citizenship. Petitions for Green Cards relying on marriage-based immigration are subject to examination from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.
In order to be legitimate, a marriage must be shown to be:
- Still in existence
- Valid at the time it occurred
- Not under a legal separation agreement
A marriage that is under two years old is subject to residency restrictions that expire after two years unless it is petitioned and replaced by Legal Permanent Residency status. Residency restrictions can be altered by a K visa or a V visa, depending on the needs of the family. Failure to abide by these rules can see the foreign spouse subject to deportation. If you or a loved one has any questions about marriage-based immigration, discuss your case with a lawyer well-versed in immigration law.
