My fiance and I are now in, and will be for most of April.

My fiance and I are now in Virginia, and will be for most of April. I'm a US citizen and a resident of VA, she's a citizen of Philippines here on a tourist visa. We are planning to live overseas for another 1-4 years (depending on circumstances beyond our control) and then we want to live together in US for months or years. Should we apply for a fiancee visa immediately, and then get married soon after, or get married this week and then apply for a marriage visa while still in US this month, or get married this week and then apply for a marriage visa in the future, while we are overseas?

A friend of mine was in USA on tourist visa. He applied to

HeyA friend of mine was in USA on tourist visa. He applied to change to a student visa.While he was waiting for an answer, he fell in love and got married.Yesterday he received a letter 'Notice of decision'Essentially the student visa was denied, and it says as you have a pending immigrant visa pretition, this indicates that you intend to remain in the US in order to await the approval of your visa petition.It then goes on to say you do not qualify for an F1 visa. You can remain until the end of your current I-94.This i-94 expired last year.So what is the deal?Is he able to stay until his marriage visa is approved? Or needs to leave immediately?Thanks.

My daughter married a man from Tunesia almost 3 years ago.

My daughter married a man from Tunesia almost 3 years ago. He was here on a Marriage Visa. She is now wanting to divorce him because he was unfaithful and many other reasons. In the mean time she bought a home, but did not put his name on it as he was not contributing anything toward it. He was trying to talk her into not filing until he could get his citizenship and since she does not want to wait, he said he will take her for as much as he can, including her home. What does she need to do?JA: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?Customer: I am not sure where he is at with his forms. I know he just met with immigration to get his green card/ten year visa. I am pretty sure he did not tell them that they were separated since last summer. Now he was waiting for his option for citizenship.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No. my daughter was hoping to do a quick divorce but he is upset because she will not wait until he gets his citizenship to divorce himJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
