i m gc holder at 4 y and 11 mos i just applied for citizenship and my fiancee is student visa should i marry before i got citizen or after ,,we are planning to do register marriage in usa on first week of may so what should we do
I agree. Marry when you are ready to do so. You will need to be a U.S. Citizen before you can petition your husband for an immediately available visa. Therefore, it may complicate matters if you file before you have naturalized and become a U.S. Citizen.
I strongly recommend hiring a competent and experienced immigration attorney to handle this matter. Some are disqualified from adjustment of status, even if they marry a U.S. Citizen and lawfully entered with a visa, even if they have not committed a crime.
