Dear Attorneys, I am a U.S. Greencard holder. I received a potential alliance from this girl who lives in India. Now she is interested in pursuing higher studies in the U.S. on an F1 visa and is planning to apply to some schools close to where I live. Since as a Greencard holder I don’t have a choice to bring my spouse on F1 visa, the idea is that once she finishes her school only then we will register our marriage in the U.S. Our families though would like the marriage to be registered in India before she comes here so that we can start living together while she is in school. (We both are in our mid 30’s). So I was thinking that if she gets an F1 visa and then I go to India and have a registered marriage there, can she still come to the U.S. on an F1 visa? Many thanks for your help.
