Five dangerous mistakes when applying for a green card due to marriage

Marriage to a U.S. citizen does not automatically qualify foreign spouses for a green card. To do this, there are several more steps to be taken - and it is important not to make mistakes at each of them.

Applications for marriage-based green cards are being scrutinized by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officials and consulates amid a rise in marriage fraud in the United States, writes Baltimore Post-Examiner. It is necessary to draw up a correct application in one attempt, fulfilling all legal requirements - this is a rather complex task that requires extensive documentary support. Here are the mistakes you want to avoid.

You do not contact a lawyer

Most people do not have a clear understanding of the conditions for submitting an application, the process of processing it and making a decision. In addition, the language barrier often becomes an obstacle to understanding all the nuances. To make the applicant's hard work easier, save time and avoid most mistakes, a professional assistant is needed - so it is advisable to contact a lawyer who specializes in such tasks.

You cannot prove marriage is valid.

Being legally married is a prerequisite. You must register your marriage in accordance with the laws of the country or state where the registration will take place. The marriage union should not be contrary to the law or local customs. In addition, you must not be married to another person, must provide adequate evidence of the end of a previous marriage (divorce or death certificate) and proof of a current legal marriage.

You are not sure of your right to change status

A US citizen can apply for a green card for a spouse who already lives in the US by requesting a change in his status. If a spouse entered the US illegally, it could deprive him of the right to participate in the process. Immigrants without documents are not eligible to apply for a marriage green card. You need to request a waiver of the status of illegally present in the country. Until you get it, you cannot move to change status.

You are trying to change status too soon

Some people request a change of status soon after being allowed into the United States, including on a tourist visa. This raises authorities' suspicions of visa and marriage fraud - the applicant is hiding his true intention to obtain a green card through marriage. Under no circumstances apply to change your status as soon as you arrive in the country.

You are not able to provide proof of financial support.

Many immigrant spouses do not provide the necessary documents proving that the US citizen and the lawful spouse of the applicant provide him with financial assistance, and the applicant will not become a public burden for American taxpayers.

And finally, the main reason for refusals is incorrect application completion. Be careful and seek help from a specialist.
