Congratulations. Please tell me:
1) Where did you get married?
2) Where do you plan to live?
3) If you are visiting USA, are you on a visitor's visa?
This is not an answer, but an information request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.
Thank you. Actually you do have a visa, without realizing it. You were given it at the border automatically since you are Canadian.
Do you plan to live with him in the US - is that the plan?
Sure. He would have to petition for you using the I-130/I-485 application package. See HERE for step by step on instructions on how to do so. The forms are here:
There is something called dual intent. See HERE. This disallows you to seek permanent residency while on a tourist visa in most cases. As such, you would have to go to Canada until the I-130/I-485 goes through, which should be within about 6 months on average.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
