Helpful Marriage Immigration Info

Because the spouse of a U.S. citizen is deemed to be an immediate relative, they are not subject to quota restrictions when attempting to obtain their permanent residency. However, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) closely examines petitions for Green Cards to ensure that the marriage is bona fide and was not entered into for the purposes of obtaining citizenship.

In addition to this, the foreign-born spouse must be legally eligible to be admitted into the U.S. Whether you are in Lake Charles or any other community in Louisiana, we can help you move forward.

Typically, the marriage is considered to be legitimate if:

  • It was valid at the time it was entered into
  • It is still in existence
  • No legal separation agreement has been entered into

If the marriage is less than two years old, the USCIS will issue conditional residency that expires after two years. Within 90 days of the expiration of conditional residency, both spouses must jointly petition to have it removed and replaced by permanent residency status. If they fail to do this, the foreign-born spouse may be subject to deportation proceedings.

  • This entire office is an amazing team and we recommend them to all of our friends

    “We have been using this office since 2014. They have helped us from adjusting my husbands status from his overstayed visa, to getting his travel permit, green card, and now his citizenship! They were able to pretty much do everything for us to where we only needed to submit documents and stay in contact. They made the entire process smooth and quick for us. They helped put our minds at ease when we were worried what could happen while we wait. Very good with quick response times! Very friendly staff! Both Ashley & Jeb were amazing to us and worked closely with us throughout the process! Maria & Josue were our main contacts throughout this as well and were just friendly and always answered my questions. Karen & Ann were amazing with working out payment arrangements for us during a difficult time of a new baby. This entire office is an amazing team and we recommend them to all of our friends who will need to go through these things as well! Thanks for all your help!”
