Ready to Petition your Spouse? In this case, are you a US Citizen and you are petitioning your spouse, it will be considered an Immediate Relative Petition and you can move on immediately (or even simultaneously) to adjusting status or consular processing. The first part must be done and must be done properly in order to ever proceed to the next part. Without a proper I-130 application there will never be a Green Card. If approved, then you could move onto the next step in the Immigration process. If not approved, it will take years of red tape. Remember, it is your responsibility to submit everything correctly. This sample I-130 Petition has everything necessary to give you the best chance possible to get an approval. Just input your own information and use the application as a guide. It has been prepared by an expert Immigration Attorney. Thus, this book will allow you to see a guide of how it is done, prepared and submitted.
In order to initially even be considered for this type of visa, you will need to make sure that first there is a U.S. Citizen and that in fact the foreign national has legal authority to adjust status in the United States. While there are several requirements and this type of visa with its petition will try to show all those requirements, you cannot even begin if you are not a citizen of the United States.
While it would be better and more effective to use an experienced attorney, it is clear that many times people just do not have the funds to retain an attorney. Therefore, note that this marriage petition from a United Citizen to a spouse is made by an experienced immigration lawyer with nearly 30 years of experience. It is real and it was actually submitted. You can put your own facts and information in this petition, and note that it will be a very good sample for you to proceed with the marriage petition for yourself.
The sample USC Marriage Petition will give lots of great information and a significant amount of information and data that will comply with the requirements. Thus, if you cannot hire an immigration lawyer to prepare the necessary Marriage Petition, then this is the next best thing. Follow it carefully and closely and you will have a real chance of realizing your dream to stay inside the United States. Note that the adjudicating officer at USCIS is not your friend or the Consulate Officer at the U.S. Consulate deciding whether you should get this particular visa or status. Thus, you need to completely and properly document and prepare your Marriage Petition. You must properly either get legal representation via an attorney or represent yourself. Either way, if you qualify for this, you must make it as strong as possible.
We certainly hope you find this petition useful and helpful and hope for the best immigration experience you can have. We do have petitions on every subject area of immigration, and you might look at those if needed as well. If you do need to actually have a consultation, you can call our U.S. Immigration Law office at 562-495-0554 for an initial free consultation to determine what must be done to help you and your family.
Many times people will think that paying somebody to marry them to get the Green Card is the best and fastest way to obtain legal status. However, that is far from the truth. Marriage fraud, if you are adjudicated to have committed marriage fraud, means that you will not be able to get immigration benefits for the rest of your life. Furthermore, the U.S. Citizen can be criminally prosecuted. Even if no legal action occurs, the US Citizen will be demanding money from you year after year with no end in sight.
Additionally, not all people in this situation will qualify for adjustment of status. For example, if the foreign national committed crimes of moral turpitude or other types of crimes or commits fraud, a Waiver of Inadmissibility will be needed. Alternatively, if the U.S. Citizen committed various sex related crimes, then a Walsh Waiver will be needed to proceed forward.
