My uncle is petitioning for his wife. She does not want to permanently move to the US, so he has not petitioned for her even though he's been a US citizen for a number of years. She tried to come to the US for 2 months as a tourist, but she was denied a tourist visa at her local US Embassy, so now even though she does not need a green card, the only way to guarantee her 2 months visit is through petitioning for a green card through her husband. I heard that it does not take too long, and my uncle asked me to inquire about the forms needed to fill out when petitioning for a wife.
I have done the husband-wife route myself, but my ex husband was inside the US at that time on a tourist visa, so I am not sure how different this situation is when the wife is outside of the US. Can you please adadvise me as to what is needed for him to petition, because he's doing this without an attorney. Also, what type of a photo does she need (size and quantity?) Thank you. P.S. I think when I petitioned for my ex, we filled out like 3 forms if I remember correctly, but I also got help by a friend in filling them out.
