Hi , I am a green card holder and lived in US last 3 years, I am single.. now I wana apply for Fiancy visa...so can I am eligible to apply for a fiancy Visa
State/Country relating to question: United States
Hi, my name is Kim & I will be happy to answer your question.
The USCIS does not allow a green card holder to petition for a fiance to come to the US. I-129F petitions and K visas are only for US citizens. However, once you are natutalized, you may petition for a fiance.
If you marry first, then you may petition for your spouse to come to the US.

so how much time to take if i got married now, i mean...if i got married now then how much time she will be here in USA to live with me...
I am waiting
I see that I was given a negative rating. However, I was answering your question. The chat client may take a minute in between answers.
after you marry abroad, you will need to petition for your spouse to come to the US and complete consular processing in her home country. This process could take between 6 to 9 months on the average.
It means if i married during green card, it will take 6-9 months to process her visa....
are you planning to marry soon? what is your fiance's nationality?
or after Citizen ship if i applied for her
she is in Pakistan
yes, since you have a green card, you may petition for a spouse. It will take 6-9 months usually.
so if I married now next mont or august, then I can contact to you for a file her visa.... or processes
the processing time frame will be approximately the same for either green card holder or US Citizen
Any document requirement to process for that...
if you marry in July or August abroad, then you could start your process after the marriage.
so you will be available for helping this process or how i can apply for that.... or how much u will get for tha process her application after marriage
you may ask questions about the process here on JustAnswer.com but I am precluded from representing you outside of the website.
There are several documents to that will need to be filed. I-130 Petition for Alien relative along with supporting documentation will be what you file to start the process. She will complete the process through the consulate in Pakistan. If she is otherwise admissible, then she will be given a stamp in her passport (I-551) to enter as a green card holder.
you stated that you have had your green card for 3 years, did you obtain it through employment?
no my parents lived in Miami
they sponsor me
OK, that is fine
as long as it was not based on a recent previous marriage to a US citizen
it is Ok that you were sponsored by parents. If your green card was based on a previous marriage to a US citizen then that would have not been OK.
oh... ok I got it....I am not married..till yet...
yes. then that is OK. have you met your fiance in person?
you will need to show evidence that the marriage is bone fide (real) so you will need to have photographs and evidence of your correspondence-- emails & cards & such. along with a certified copy fo your marriage license with official translation. and copy of her birth certificare with translation and your birth certificarte and translation. you will also send in a photo copy of your green card.
So what supporting documents/forms I need to be fillout like any official documents

feel free to continue to ask follow up questions.
supporting documents are like those I mentioned above-- birth cerifigcates and such
Any I-130 form like this
you will need to fill out an affidavit of support along with a biographic information sheet to go along with the I-130
then after the I-130 is approved, then it will be transfered to the National Visa center for overseas consular processing. your new wife will have a medical exam, a police clearance, and pay fees to the National Visa Center. After all of the requirements are met and she is otherwise admissible to the US (not a criminal) then she will be invited to the consualte for her interview
after the the interview, and as long as she is otherwise admissible, then she will recieve her I-551 green card stamp in her passport. Then she can enter the US as a green card holder.
her hard copy green card will arrive at her new US address shortly thereafter.
Ok thats good...How I can found I-130 and Affidavit of support...documents like? any website or some where else...
yes, here is the link:
click on forms at the top left
there are instructions that go along with the I-130. it will tell you all of the documents that need to be filed and the filing fees assiciated with them
you will need the I-130, the I-864EZ, and the G-325A for both you and your spouse
the instructions will tell you where to mail the petition and documents depending on where you live in the US.
