What to Know About Green Cards Through Marriage

A spousal relationship is one of the smoothest paths to immigrate to the United States. If you are married to an American citizen or lawful permanent resident, you can apply for a green card. In order to obtain a green card through marriage, you and your partner must satisfy the following requirements:

  • Complete and submit Form I-130 Petition for Alien Relative;
  • Prove to U.S. immigration authorities that your marriage is legitimate; and
  • Attend a marriage green card interview with an immigration official.

For a marriage to be valid for the purposes of United States immigration law, it must have been valid at the time it was performed and it cannot have been entered into for the purposes of obtaining a green card. In other words, you and your partner have to prove that you are in a bona fide marital relationship. A wide range of evidence can be used to do so, including your personal testimony, your living circumstances, and the intertwining of your lives personally and financially.

Note: The process for applying for a K-1 fiancé(e) visa is similar.
