Dating someone green card marriage
Would anyone happen to have gone through similar situation? It's very hard to argue that you maintained residence in the US with a 3-year absence.Furthermore, the plastic green card is only valid for re-entry after an absence of at most 1 year. Although technically the card is no longer valid for re-entry, the CBP officer has discretion to waive that document requirement if they feel that you didn't abandon residence.(If you had a re-entry permit, it would be valid for re-entry for the duration of validity of the re-entry permit, but even re-entry permits are issued for at most 2 years anyway.) So you technically have no document that allows you to enter the US as an immigrant. However, with such a long absence and no compelling excuse, they will likely not let you enter.If they don't let you enter, they will ask you to voluntarily sign to abandon your permanent residence.So I finally hunkered down this weekend to watch “The Proposal.” And I’m sorry to report that just about everything in it— from the green card legalese, to the immigration official who crashes the wedding, to the lightening quick timeframe — is unrealistic.I can’t blame anyone, though, for accepting Hollywood’s interpretation of a marriage between an American and a foreigner as how immigration works.They were nervous and the husband kept on forgetting simple facts about the marriage. Apparently the immigration official began to suspected that this was marriage not for real, but a "sham" marriage entered into just to get a Green Card.
At that time, you and your spouse will need to apply together to remove the condition.The BCIS will want to see evidence that yours is truly a marriage and not just a union on paper.You and your spouse should expect to answer questions about each other and about the marriage, as well as provide physical evidence of the relationship. citizen, either born or naturalized, you are considered an immediate relative and are likewise usually eligible for an immigrant visa immediately, providing your Petition for Alien Relative (the form your sponsoring relative filed on your behalf) has been approved by the BCIS.Over the past year, I’ve come to realize that most people don’t understand it (precisely because of movies like “The Proposal,” probably).Let me take you back in time to almost a year ago exactly, when I started messaging over OK Cupid to a guy who lived in Brooklyn named Kale.
