What country are you living in? Will you two be immigrating to the US together once he is approved?

I am needing in dept information. We have been marries for two years and are presently working in Sudan. Thank you
Immigration Lawyer: Jen Marie, Esq., Immigration Attorney replied 2 years ago

AS long as you and your husband can substantiate your relationship so that the USCIS and consular officer believes that it is a genuine, bonafide relationship, then your husband has a good chance of approval. This is the same even if you have previously applied for your prior spouse.

Unfortunately you can only do direct filing now if USCIS has an office in the US embassy/consulate in your country of residence. The other option now is having to send the application to a USCIS office in the US. TO begin the process you would submit the I-130 petition found here usics.gov/forms . You will send proof of your marriage together with that form and the fee is $420. Once that petition is hopefully approved, then you will move on with the National Visa Center which will ask for additional documents that you must mail in. Once that is complete then your husband will be referred to the nearest US embassy/consulate for an immigrant visa interview. The only thing to keep in mind is that you must also be moving to the US with your husband at the same time in order for him to be approved.

Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!
