Marriage Visa - Frequently Asked Questions
Does being married to an American a guarantee getting a marriage visa?
Answer:Applicants often think that being married is a guarantee to get a marriage visa and then a Green card. Marrying does not assure visa issuance. Marriage is simply a piece of paper from an immigration standpoint. What is important is that you have a genuine and sincere relationship. The strength of the relationship will be examined carefully, not so much whether you married or not. Generally, the more time you spend together as a couple is best. People who spend a great deal of time together tend to behave like a couple and are settled. Not everyone has the luxury of frequent or extended travel, so just do the best you can do. Then we can help you get your Green card. Read more about the K3 Spouse Visa
