Marriage to a U.S. Citizen: A Case Study


If you entered the U.S. without inspection and you married a U.S. citizen, you may be wondering what options you have and what the process will look like to obtain your permanent residency, also known as the “green card”.

Our attorneys have prepared a case study, an analysis of a case, where an immigrant entered the U.S. without inspection and married a U.S. citizen, to help you understand what the process will look like when going through the process of applying for permanent residency.

If this situation applies to you, we encourage you to speak with an immigration attorney about the specifics of your case to ensure that your immigration process goes smoothly. The case study provided only provides a guide for what to expect, so be aware that every immigration case is unique.
