Immigrating Through Marriage
Is a religious marriage valid for immigration purposes? Must a U.S. citizen always meet his or her fiancé(e) in person before filing an I-129F petition? Can an I-751 ever be filed after expiration of the conditional resident card? In this session, learn the answers to these and other questions related to immigrating through marriage. Presenters will discuss establishing the marital relationship, including what types of supporting evidence should be submitted as bona fides of the marriage; the eligibility requirements and procedures for filing K-1 fiancé(e) petitions; how and when conditional residents should apply to remove the conditions on status; and other issues related to marriage-based immigration.
