I'm a F-1 student getting married to a non-citizen permanent resident of the us.

Asked about 1 year ago - Ames, IA

Is it true that according to the new laws, the spouse of a lawful permanent resident(non-citizen) has the same priority as the spouse of a us citizen in receiving the green card?

    Answered . No. It is complete and utter lie. Whoever tells you this either wants you money or has an agenda. There is no new law and whether there will be any, is completely unclear at this point. True to now, they can marry and petition but cannot adjust until PD is current. This is THE LAW.
