Marriage in the US

U.S. Immigration Attorney, Rosanna Berardi, discusses issues relating to obtaining a green card by marrying a U.S. citizen. The discussion provides an overview of the K-1 (“fiancee visa”) and K-3 visa categories.

Each year, over 400,000 citizens of the United States marry foreign-born persons and petition for them to obtain permanent residence in the U.S. ( This is especially prevalent in areas that straddle the border – such as the Buffalo / Southern Ontario border) Spouses of U.S.  citizens are considered “immediate relatives” under the immigration laws, and are exempt from all numerical quota limitations.
