I am currently a permanent resident and expect to receive my citizenship around June, 2017. My fiancee is visiting me on a tourist visa. Can we get married in the U.S.? Then, he will return to his home country and I will file the I-130. So the marriage will be in the U.S. but the permanent resident filing will be while he is in his home country. Also, when applying for the tourist visa, he told the officer that we are boyfriend and girlfriend and that he is visiting me. We later decided to get married. Thank you.
Yes, this is ok. It is not a violation of B2 status to get married while here, especially if the person still intends to leave and apply for the immigrant visa abroad.
The answer above is only general in nature and cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known and detailed research has not been undertaken. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. Specific answers require an investigation into all facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship. Use these answers at your own risk.
Yes, you can do that. You can also have him adjust his status here once you are married. There many things to consider such as the ability to travel quickly, and whether he has work or school to finish up there.
There are some fine lines here especially when you post on a public forum. Hopefully it should work. Best!
