I just got married to US citizen and applied for green card last week. Me and my wife lives in different states due to work. So my question is ;
Do we need to meet each other certain times before green card interview? Or is there any way that we can explain interviewer about our situation?
Thanks in advance.
Hi there- We've handled cases where husband and wife need to live separately for the time being. Example would be when they work in different states and one spouse is trying to find a job in the other spouse's state. As long as you can prove that the marriage is genuine and that you would be living together soon, it should not be an issue.
There is no set requirements for exact ammount of meetings you and your wife have to have before the interview. As long as you have a good explanation to your living arrangements, your petition still can be approved. However, if you never resided together or otherwise "consummated" your marriage, it will be very difficult to prove that you married for the reasons other than immigration benefit.
