My fiance and I would like to get married at the beginning
My fiance and I would like to get married at the beginning part of next year. We looked into applying for the K1 visa but he needs to return to his country (Saudi Arabia) shortly (2 months) after we marry because of a family business obligation. I was reading one must not leave the country after the I-485 until they receive their green card. I wanted to know what other options we have that would allow him entry in and out of the US without having to wait an extended period of time.
After my fianc� went k1 visa interview, they took her
After my fianc� went for her k1 visa interview, they took her passport and told her to wait , then a month later they sent the passport and told her that the case is sent back to USCIS for review bc the petition was approved on false information. After looking into the original paperwork that were filed on our behalf I realized that the filer stated that we lived in the same country together before our relationship went romantic which is totally not the case . Now I have not heard back from USCIS , it's been 15month process since we originally applied for k1 petition . Can I go and marry her and apply for I-130 petition before I hear back from USCIS ?
I've been a citizen of the U.S. since September of 2015.
Hi, I've been a citizen of the U.S. since September of 2015. My partner and I have been talking through video chat, and other online messaging apps for almost three years now, but have never actually met in person. We're constantly connected through live video feeds regularly, and i'm also in contact with some of her other family members; so there is no question of if i'm not talking to the person I think I am. Since I'm recently graduated from University, we've been talking about finally buying a home in the States, and having her live here permanently. My questions are; What would be the best way, and can we expect to have a hard time finding a permanent means for her to stay here? She lives in the Czech Republic, and I understand that there is a visa wavier program, but i'm not sure if that will work for our situation. And i'm not sure if a marriage visa is a 100% sure way to go through with this since we haven't met in person.

Planning to marry in India. I found an article that says that a Religious ceremony performed by Christians, Jews, and Muslims is acceptable as legal. If I did a religious ceremony how does that affect us when we file for a marriage visa or permanent residency? Does USCIS recognize this type of marriage? Will it be harder to process our paperwork with this?If you are married to an american citizen can you still apply for a student visa and be approved?In India, a religious marriage ceremony is generally considered a legal marriage. However, for marriages registered under the Hindu Marriage Act (affecting Hindus, Jains, Sikhs and Buddhists), the certificate issued by the temple or gurudwara may not be legally sufficient for all purposes. Individuals married under the Hindu Marriage Act may seek a formal marriage certificate from the Registrar of Marriages. If one of the parties is not Indian, the registrar may request a “no objection letter” (see above) and proof of termination of any prior marriages.If the parties are married in a Christian, Muslim, Parsi, Jewish, Baha'i or other religious ceremony, the certificate issued by the religious authority (e.g., the church's marriage certificate, the mosque's nikah nama, etc.) generally is sufficient proof of marriage, and no certificate from the marriage registrar is necessary.
