Earlier this year he proposed to her on their anniversary and they got married a few months later. They came to The Nunez Firm after the wedding because they wanted to adjust her status to permanent resident. We filed the I-130 visa petition and adjustment of status forms along with over a hundred pages of evidence. We had our USCIS interview in Santa Ana at 34 Civic Center a few months later.
At the interview the officer asked a lot of questions about how they met and why they decided to get married. I had prepared my clients well regarding what to expect and why the officer will be asking certain questions. They explained how they met, when they decided to start dating and how the husband decided to ultimately propose. The officer thoughtfully listened to the testimony and we provided additional evidence of their good faith marriage, and the USCIS officer reviewed it.
At the end of the interview, the officer approved the case and the wife became a conditional resident for two years. After the interview, I explained that she will need to apply to have the conditions removed in 21 months.
The couple was very excited. If you are considering the marriage-based adjustment of status process, contact The Nunez Firm to schedule a consultation with managing attorney Jay Nunez.
