I am planning to marry my Canadian citizen fiance. But she is finishes her medical school in Canada in 2015, so she will be staying there for a while. We are planning to get married here in US soon. I think I need to file I-130 for her immigration. Can an expert confirm? So the plan is to apply this summer for I-130 this August so that next August 2014 she can immigrate here to get green card. Then go back to canada within few weeks to finish her school till May 2015. And in November 2014 she applies and interviews with hospitals with US green card and social security number while still studying in final year in Canada (Toronto). Once she is accepted, she moves in May 2015 permanently with me here. Is this feasible? When I immigrated to US back in 2007 I was finishing my school and they said they allow people if they are in school full time 1 year to finish their school before making US their permanent home.
