My husband applied for a U-visa before we got marry, now he wants to send my papers as addition so we both can get U-visa. should we wait for his approval first and then file my papers or do we need to send papers asap along with his before he gets an approval?
You're going to need to consult a qualified immigration lawyer who does U visas for guidance on this one. If you were not married when your husband filed his I-918, then you are not going to qualify as a derivative beneficiary and cannot file for U2 status. However, if your husband later adjusts to lawful permanent resident (after a 3 year mimimum LPR), you may have some relief through an I-929, but it's no walk in the park, and you're going to have show extreme hardship. You can search for an immigration lawyer at www.ailalawyer.org. Best of luck to you and your husband.
