Introduction to Getting a Green Card Through Marriage
As the spouse of a US citizen or permanent resident, you are eligible to apply for your green card. The basic idea is that you may qualify for a green card through a valid and legitimate marriage to a US citizen or permanent resident.
To get a green card through marriage, your US citizen or US permanent resident spouse must file a Form I-130 on your behalf. Your spouse is the petitioner (person filing the petition), and you are the Beneficiary (person benefitting from the petition).
With a green card, you can live and work in the United States, freely travel in and out of the US, attend US schools, and eventually apply to become a US citizen.
Getting a green card through marriage is not as simple as you might think. Multiple requirements and steps must be carefully followed. Failure to properly file your case or follow each of the required steps can result in your case being delayed or denied. The requirements for getting a green card through marriage vary depending on whether you are marrying a US citizen or a US permanent resident. I will make these differences clear throughout this guide.
