  • Don't know --the rules are complex and seem to change from person to person. A friend got married in Canada and his wife wasn't allowed to step foot in the US for 2 years, until all the immigration stuff was done (to prove they didn't get married just for her citizenship or something). When my sister got married, she couldn't leave the US for much the same reason. It's just too complex to say.

    Ask an immigration lawyer and an INS agent and you'll get at least 2 answers.

  • There are requirements you have to follow to make sure you didn't just marry him for him to have citizenship here
