I came to the US on L1A and received my green card in Oct 2017. Assume i marry a girl based out of USA- indian citizen living in india or canadian citizen living in canada. My concern is about the online information about i130 filing and subsequent priority date. It seems it can take 2 to 3 years for a spousal visa/green card to arrive after application by a GC holder spouse. My intention is to get advice to shorten the wait time after the marriage because I don’t want to be separated from my spouse for a long time.
I want advice on how can i bring my wife legally in usa without living separate for a long time? Student visa or TN visa is not something we are interested in. i am fine to evaluate if i need to move out of usa by my US company on GC for an extended period of time.
please suggest pro's and con's on above or other strategies to bring her in the US without having to wait for that long.
