It depends on how long it takes me to prepare a response, as well as how many other customers are in line ahead of you. Kindly remember to give me a positive rating before leaving this site today. I do not get a salary here, so your positive rating is the only way I am rewarded for doing my job. If that does not happen, it is as if I never worked, which I am sure you agree would not be an ideal outcome. So please do not forget to give me 3 or more stars, or any smiling faces, in order to help me get credit for doing my job. Thank you! The only way you can move to the US permanently is to be petitioned by your US citizen husband and then to apply for an immigrant visa
to immigrate to the US. Some people think that they can come to the US as a Canadian visitor and then adjust their status to permanent resident. However to enter the US as a Canadian visitor intending to immigrate permanently is a violation of immigration law, and can lead to a charge of immigration fraud. The right way to do this is to have your husband file the I-130 petition for you. It needs to be approved by the USCIS and then it is sent to the National Visa Center for processing. At the NVC, your husband will be required to submit an I-864, Affidavit of Support. You will be asked to file the immigrant visa application. Then it will be sent to the US consulate
for processing. You will have to undergo a medical examination and then an immigrant visa interview. Once the visa is issued, you can then travel to the US as an immigrant. When you are admitted with the immigrant visa, you are considered a resident of the US and will receive your green card
within 4 to 6 weeks. I know these issues can be confusing. If you want to discuss this or anything else by phone, I can send you an offer for that. There will be an additional fee, if you want to do that. Please let me know and I will send you the offer. I hope I have answered your questions. Kindly rate my customer service with a positive rating. I do not get a salary here and this is the only way I am compensated for my efforts. So please do not forget to do that before you log off. You can do that by giving me 3 or more stars, or any of the smiling faces. And you can continue to ask questions even after you have given a rating. Again, giving me a positive rating is the ONLY way I get credit for helping you. REMINDER: You are not rating the state of the law or the outcome of your situation, which I cannot control.
