So everything I told you is accurate.
First, I never said the adjustment of status would take 3 months. I said he would get employment authorization within 3 months. The adjustment of status process for the spouse of a US citizen takes about 9 months from beginning to end.
Second, I don't know who your "friends" are or what their status in the US is, but they do not know what they are talking about if they told you that the spouse of a US citizen takes years to get a green card through adjustment of status. You future husband would be an immediate relative of a US citizen. He is therefore immediately eligible to adjust his status to get a green card. You and he just need to file for it and wait about 9 months for it to process. In the mean time, he also files the I – 765 application for employment authorization. Again, it takes three months for that to be processed and for him to get permission to work legally. Trust me, I know what I am doing. I have been doing immigration law for more than 10 years. Your friends have not been.
I know this can be confusing. If you want a 30 minute phone call to discuss this or anything else, let me know. I can send you an offer for that.
