Why Do You Need a Marriage Green Card?

A marriage green card grants permanent resident status to the spouses of U.S. citizens or green card holders and provides the opportunity to live and work in anywhere the U.S. After three years, foreign-born spouses are eligible to apply for U.S. citizenship. This immigration pathway ensures married couples don’t have to suffer lengthy separations, and offers a range of benefits for couples to build a stable and prosperous life together. 

However, because marriage green cards have often been exploited in the past, the rules surrounding the process are detailed and complex. To obtain a marriage green card, you must be able to prove that the marriage between you and your spouse is genuine, rather than for the sake of receiving immigration benefits. 

The skilled attorneys at Ranchod Law Group have extensive experience helping married couples navigate the intricate requirements and overcome potential obstacles in the marriage green card application process for over 20 years. Contact us today at (916) 613-3553 or email us at to schedule a consultation. 

The Benefits of Marriage Green Cards

Obtaining a marriage green card offers numerous benefits for married couples, including:

  • The opportunity for the foreign spouse to become a legal permanent resident in the U.S.
  • Maintains family unity by allowing married couples to remain together
  • Eligibility to work anywhere in the U.S.
  • Access to social benefits, such as healthcare coverage, educational opportunities, and social security benefits
  • Eligibility to apply for U.S. citizenship after 3 years
  • The freedom to travel in and out of the United States without the limitations and restrictions that are typically associated with nonimmigrant visas

The Marriage Green Card Process

The processing time for a marriage-based green card can be 17 months or more, depending on whether the U.S.-based spouse is a U.S. citizen or a lawful permanent resident. The green card process includes several steps:

  • Filing a petition for Alien Relative (Form I-130) with supporting documentation 
  • Completing the Application to Register Permanent Residence (Form I-485) for adjustment of status
  • Attending an interview with a USCIS officer to verify the authenticity of the marriage
  • Providing additional evidence to establish the bona fide nature of the marriage
  • Waiting for USCIS approval

Ranchod Law Group offers comprehensive assistance throughout the visa application process, from form preparation to the immigration interview. Contact us today to get assistance with your case. 

Common Reasons Marriage Green Cards Are Denied

ThereAlthough marriage green cards have a relatively high approval rate, there are several reasons why they’re commonly denied, including:

  • Inability to establish that the marriage is valid and authentic; complications can arise if there are issues with divorce finalization, same-sex marriage recognition, or legal recognition in the country where the marriage took place.
  • Mistakes in the application package, such as failing to provide translations for non-English documents, missing information on forms, problems with photos, or missing signatures. 
  • Insufficient financial resources to support the spouse seeking a green card. 
  • Ineligibility to apply for a green card from within the United States due to factors like entering as a tourist, entering illegally, J-1 visa requirements, C-1/D visa status, being in removal proceedings, or having entered on a K-1 fiancé(e) visa with a different partner.
  • Categorical ineligibility, such as specific criminal records, certain medical issues, or lies or misrepresentations to immigration officials. 

To ensure a smooth green card application process and avoid potential denials, it’s crucial to be prepared and address any issues from the start. By taking preventative measures such as filing waiver requests, finding a financial co-sponsor, or resolving legal issues with your initial marriage, you can increase your chances of success.
