How long do we need to wait to apply for the Adjustment of Status? I entered the U.S. with a tourist visa and have now decided to marry my boyfriend, a U.S. Citizen. Can we start the Green Card process in the United States?

Hey there! So, diving into the whole green card process, huh? Exciting stuff! Alright, here’s the lowdown.

Usually, after you hop into the U.S. with a tourist visa, it’s cool to apply for the Adjustment of Status (AOS) after around 90 days. The deal is, the folks at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) want to make sure you’re not swooping in just for the green card.

But hey, there are exceptions! If you can prove that your intentions were legit when you entered the U.S. and that your relationship with your boyfriend is for real, you might be able to go for AOS before those 90 days are up.

Here’s what USCIS checks out before giving the green light on your AOS application

  • How long you’ve been with your boyfriend
  • Living together vibes
  • Any shared money stuff
  • Kids together, maybe?
  • Other ties to the U.S., like fam or property

If you’re not sure about waiting or jumping in early, it’s smart to chat with an immigration attorney. They’ll suss out your situation and steer you in the right direction.

While you’re at it, start gathering those bits and bobs for your AOS application. Think birth certificates, marriage proof, money papers, and snazzy photos of you two together.

I know this immigration road trip can feel a tad overwhelming, but trust me, you got this! Stay patient, keep things organized, and grab pro help when needed.
