At the interview, we provided evidence of their relationship including previous lease agreements, car insurance, and a joint bank account. The couple did not have many bills in the husband’s name because he did not have a social security number at the time. We provided numerous photos to show that the couple had been together for many years prior to the wedding.
The officer was satisfied that the couple was involved in a good faith marriage and the husband was admissible. She approved the husband’s green card on the spot. The approval included the I-485 application to adjust status and I-130 visa petition. The couple was extremely happy that they will be able to move forward with their lives without worrying about the husband living in the shadows and working illegally.
I explained to the couple that because their marriage is less than two years old, they will need to file an I-751 application to remove conditions in two years. I advised them to collect as many documents to prove good faith marriage as possible over the next two years.
