In this week’s Immigration Law for Tech Startups podcast, I’m joined by my law partner, Anita Koumriqian, as we discuss how to get a green card when you marry a U.S. citizen. The biggest aspect of family-based immigration is marriage to a U.S. citizen because it’s a classic case type of couples who are in love and who just want to be together.
If you’re trying to figure out how to be physically together with someone somewhere in the world and you’re thinking of going through the process as a married couple, just remember things are changing every single day. So if you are toying around with the option of either a fiance visa or a marriage-based green card, be sure to reach out to an attorney to help guide you through this process.
