Lawful permanent residence was approved for a Fullerton client who is married to a U.S. Citizen. The couple met in 2010 while he was visiting the United States from Europe. They met online initially and within a couple months they went on their first date. Things went well and they traveled around the United States together. He proposed in 2011, and they married in Orange County in early 2012. After the marriage they consulted with us on how best to proceed with the immigration process. We advised them to pursue adjustment of status so that the husband would not need to leave the United States to consular process.
We collected the necessary documents and prepared the various forms and filed a month after the wedding. At the interview in Santa Ana, the officer asked questions about the relationship including how they met, who proposed and when, and when they decided to get married. The interview went smoothly and the case was approved on the spot for conditional permanent residence. After the interview, I explained that the couple will need to file an I-751 two years from now in order to have the conditions removed from the green card.
The couple was very excited and planned to go on a trip to northern California this weekend. If you are considering the adjustment of status process, contact The Nunez Firm to schedule a free consultation. Managing attorney Jay Nunez will personally meet with you to help you better understand the process and how we can help.
