  • Marrying a USC

    My sister has a 6 mo. tourist visa, she is planning to marry her USC boyfriend, does she have to go back home? They met thru the internet for months now. She came a month ago.
    BTW she has a 4 year old son.

      Hi,As I always saying in this post,In case like this , your sister will be better of if she will go back to her domicile and let her USC boyfriend file for a fiancee visa. I always telling this because INS is smart, once you come here as a tourist you should act as a tourist not to marry a USC or else they're giving you hard time. Furthermore, if her boyriend will petition her , there's a good possibility that she can even take her 4 y.o. son with her here. Hope this helps.

        Hi, Cheska is right. If she is to do this the right way then she and her boyfriend should file form I-129F with the local INS office, then apply for the K-1 Visa at the US Embassy when she returns home. The link below will take you through the whole process...Good luck

          If she does decide to marry him while here on the tourist visa, she should wait a little while longer. Adjustment of status is technically possible, but there should be no suspicion that the tourist visa was requested in place of a fiance visa.

          What I mean is that if the INS suspects that she came here to marry, there could be problems. However, if they believe that she truly came here on a tourist visa, and only decided to marry later, than adjustment of status is possible.

          You may want to briefly discuss this matter with the INS (call at least 5 times) or with a lawyer.
