FOR: USC fiancee's Mexican citizen fiance lives in Mexico.

FOR JAMES: USC fiancee's Mexican citizen fiance lives in Mexico. She wants to secure a green card for him and live together in the U.S.Since a tourist visa is not dual intent, my understanding is that he might be considered to have misrepresented his immigration intent if he enters the U.S. as a visitor, they marry, and then he tries to adjust as an immediate relative.Would a fiance K-1 Visa be the best way to effect his LPR status? Or is USCIS at all lenient on the no-dual-intent issue in valid marriage cases?

I have had a Card for about 15 years and now that the Brits

Hi there:I have had a Green Card for about 15 years and now that the Brits have voted to Leave the EU, I am seriously considering getting my US Citizenship.In order to help make that decision, I appreciate if you could help me in answering the following questions:1) I currently have a British passport. I am told that I can get US citizenship, and still keep my British passport. Is this correct?2) During the past 2 years I have been spending a lot of time outside the US (more than 6 months over the course of the year, while I have been building up a new business). However, I still reside in the US, am married to a US citizen, and have a US child (plus 2 other children from a previous marriage to a US citizen). All my income is generated in the United States, through a business that I own, US based. I file annual taxes in the US and am fully paid up. Is the fact that I have been spending more than 6 months per annum the past few years an issue with now getting my US citizenship?3) I am currently in France, although I am returning to the US next week for a while (and hence the timing of this question). Do I need to be in the US in order to file for my US citizenship? Or can I file for citizenship at a US embassy or consulate in Europe?4) Once I have filed (either in US or overseas) can I travel as much as I like in and out of the United States? Are there any travel restrictions? Obviously, I will have my British passport to travel on.5) Must I file my application in person, or can I mail it in?6) How long does the application process take?7) Do I have to take the test, or do anything else, in the same location where I file for my citizenship? Or can I take it / do it anywhere?8) Is there any benefit to hiring an attorney to help me through the process, or is this something a reasonably intelligent native English speaking person can do on their own?Thank you for your time!James

FOR JUDITH Judith,. I was wondering if you could tell me how

FOR JUDITHHey there Judith, this is Kelsey Rogers. I was wondering if you could tell me how the government processes paper work for marriage to an immigrant. Is it done by state? We just talked to a friend of ours in a similar situation. She is a South African who married an American and they live in Seattle. She's been married since December and still hasn't had her interview for her green card. She didn't get permission to travel outside the US or even work for 6-months.....This has kinda freaked out Richard and I. Are we facing a similar situation? Or is it possible that because she and her husband are in Seattle and there are many people immigrating there from Asia, that there's a backlog in that area?Looking forward to speaking with you, All the Best---Kelsey R.
